May is Tag Team Appreciation Month at Wrestling Merchandise & Memories, with nearly 100 unique and interesting articles on the art of tag team wrestling.
From the time it was purchased by Turner Broadcasting in 1988 until the time it was sold in 2001, WCW was a fantastic place for tag teams to compete. The WCW World Tag Team Championship changed hands at least 70 times over that period, while the company also had added U.S. and Cruiserweight Tag Team Champions from time to time.
In counting down the Top 50 WCW Tag Teams, Wrestling Merchandise and Memories ranked them using the following criteria:
How successful and memorable were they within WCW?
How long did they team up for?
Did they have any memorable matches?
NOTE: As much as I love teams like the original Minnesota Wrecking Crew, Steamboat and Youngblood and The Dudley Boyz, this is only for the period when Ted Turner owned WCW (1988-2001).
