May is Tag Team Appreciation Month at Wrestling Merchandise & Memories, with nearly 100 unique and interesting articles on the art of tag team wrestling.
In many respects, people consider the 1980s (for our purposes, 1980 through 1989) to be a golden age for tag team wrestling. Promotions including the AWA, WWF and NWA/WCW routinely featured contests with teams that not only looked alike and dressed alike, but added a different element that singles wrestling really didn't feature in the same way.
While tag team wrestling wasn't necessarily a main event phenomenon on most major shows in the 1980s, they at least had their fair share of ring time on those shows.
In selecting the Top 50 Tag Teams Of The 1980s, Canadian Bulldog's World looked at the following criteria:
How prominent was the team between the years 1980 and 1989?
Were they a dominant duo in their chosen promotion(s)?
Did they capture championship gold, and if so, how frequently?
Was the team promoted at or near the top of the card?
