Many believe that tag team wrestling is a dying breed. While that may be true in some instances, that isn't to say it is always true. In major promotions such as the WWE, there are only a handful of teams that have shown any semblance of success, while others are simply there to create short-term feuds and nothing more. But there are a number of great tag teams competing today that don't get the respect they deserve, and a number of reasons may be attributed to that.
The one primary reason is exposure to a mainstream audience. This is certainly an issue, as teams from not only the United States but Canada and Japan have been overlooked for how good they are. Some members of teams may even be successful as singles, but simply not had the exposure on a major platform to be seen.
This is an opportunity for wrestling fans that aren't exposed to wrestling outside a major promotion to take a chance on these 20 men. Sometimes greatness isn't seen, but is still apparent to those who do witness it. These particular choices have traveled the globe and are often competing on the independent scene. This is a group of wrestlers you not only need to watch, but you need to know about. They may very well be World Champions before you know it. Here are The 10 Greatest Tag Teams You Probably Haven't Heard Of.
10 The Overdogs
9 All Night Express
6 Premier Athlete Brand
5 Team Tremendous
4 Killer Elite Squad
3 Roppongi Vice
2 Great Bash Heel
1 Matt Sydal and Ricochet
Both men are known for their high flying style and aerial feats. However, when you put the two of them together they manage to captivate an audience like not many today. Today, Sydal competes regularly with Ring of Honor and independently. Ricochet is arguably the most talented wrestler today, and continues to rise in popularity. They are the perfect combination of excitement. What remains so remarkable about them is they are able to come together only occasionally, yet don't lose any chemistry with one another. It is a truly remarkable feat, with both men having such busy schedules while not always working together. Together Sydal and Ricochet captured the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship.
