May is Tag Team Appreciation Month at Wrestling Merchandise & Memories, with nearly 100 unique and interesting articles on the art of tag team wrestling.
We've looked at the Top 50 Tag Teams Of The 1980s, as well as the Top 50 Tag Teams Of The 1990s... but were there really enough tag teams around by the end of the Attitude Era to make a decent list for the 2000s (for our purposes, 2000 to 2009)? As it turns out - there were!
While WCW and ECW barely appeared in the decade (both were gone by early 2001), there was still WWF/E, which even added a second tag team division during its brand split. And let's not forget the contributions from both TNA and Ring of Honor.
In counting down the Top 50 Tag Teams of the 2000s, we looked at the following criteria:
How prominent was the team between 2000 and 2009?
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?
