It was announced by WWE today that they will be doing a countdown of the 50 Greatest Tag Teams in WWE History (or all of wrestling history?).
Here’s what WWE posted on their website about it today.
The 50 Greatest Tag Teams limited-series event kicks off on Wednesday, June 2
What is the single greatest tag team in WWE history?
That question — a topic of fervent debate since the days when Blackjacks, Executioners and Wild Samoans ruled — will soon be settled on The 50 Greatest Tag Teams, a new limited-series event premiering Wednesday, June 2, on Peacock in the U.S. and WWE Network everywhere else. The series launch coincides with Tag Team Week, a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the World Tag Team Championship taking place across WWE social channels May 31-June 6.
Hosted by former NXT Tag Team Champions Breezango and narrated by Matt Camp, The 50 Greatest Tag Teams will count down WWE’s top tandems over the course of five episodes. New episodes will drop every Wednesday until the No. 1-ranked team is revealed on the final episode on June 30.
The show is the second installment of The 50 Greatest series that premiered earlier this year. The first installment focused on WWE’s best female Superstars, a list topped by WWE Hall of Farmer Trish Stratus.
Hold on tight to that tag rope and get ready for the scorching-hot debate to begin when The 50 Greatest Tag Teams premieres June 2.
TJR Thoughts: This should be interesting. I’m sure a lot of fans will complain about it, so I don’t envy WWE for trying to come up with a list. Earlier in the year, WWE had a listing of the 50 Greatest Women’s Superstars Ever as well. When it comes to tag teams, there are so many teams you can pick and go with teams that were from other companies. I’m intrigued to see how they rank them. For example, The New Day has the most Tag Team Titles in WWE history, but would most people rank them ahead of the Hardy Boyz or Dudley Boyz? I’m not sure about that, but WWE might rank New Day first.
Anyway, the countdown begins on June 2.
