The entire wrestling world is in utter shock right now.
Names – they’re pretty important. In the crazy world of wrestling, it’s essential to get a name right as it’s often the first detail fans will know about you. A great name tells the audience exactly what a wrestler is about, and what their prerogative inside the ring is, especially when it comes to tag teams. When two competitors come together, it’s vital they choose a name that reflects their relationship, their in-ring style, and their appearance. Having a fantastic name can be the difference between a team just being good, and a team being great. But out of all the pairings seen in promotions across the world over the last five decades or so, which teams have given themselves the most memorable monikers? Well, there’s no need to decide for yourself because I’ve done all the hard work for you (you’re welcome). Here are the Top 10 Best Tag Team Names.
In every other field of entertainment, whether it be music, television, film, etc., the determination of how good or bad something is isn’t down to one individual. Opinions from hundreds of critics are gathered to determine whether a piece of cinema or music is universally acclaimed, middle of the road, or panned by the world. Yet as it is in so many ways, wrestling is unique when it comes to critical opinion. Despite being enjoyed by millions of people around the world, there is only one opinion that truly determines how good a match is. Sure, there are hundreds of podcasters, YouTubers, journalists and fans out there that give their opinions on every match they’ve ever seen, and yes, you may be interested in what certain people have to say, yet in the wider context of the wrestling world, their opinion holds no real merit. No match is ever quoted as being 10/10 or absolutely perfect because somebody from WhatCulture said so, or because another wrestler is quoted as saying it is, no matter how admired they are by the community. However, if respected journalist Dave Meltzer says a match is five stars, then it’s known forever as a five-star match.
