Back in the earlier days of the WWE being a tag team champion really meant something. Those days had champions like the Hart Foundation, the British Bulldogs, Demolition, the Wild Samoans and the Valiant Brothers, among many others. But then things changed a bit. Even though there were still many great duos that held the belt, some really bad teams wound up champs for a little while.
Let's face it, some of these tag team champions were more than a bit stupid, both in execution in the ring, and how they performed outside of it as well. Most of these teams didn't last all that long, but the sad thing is that the teams that came after them often were just as bad.
You probably even forgot most of these teams existed, and if you remember them, you probably wish that you didn't. Because sometimes two is definitely not better than one.
So here they are, the very worst duos that ever strapped on the belt as WWE Tag Team champions. In fact you wouldn't be lying if you called them The 15 Worst WWE Tag Team Champions Ever. Don't say we didn't warn you.
15 The Moondogs
14 “Stone Cold” Steve Austin And Shawn Michaels
13 The Rock And Chris Jericho
Here is another one that looked a lot better on paper than it did in the ring. One can see why the WWE went with this one, but the results were not impressive. The Rock was on the rise. Chris Jericho was Chris Jericho. Why not?
12 Booker T And Test
Remember these guys as partners? Yeah, we don't either. Booker T and Test took the championship from the above-mentioned The Rock and Chris Jericho, only to lose it thirteen days later. At this point, it's believe the WWE were just playing with us!
11 The Bodydonnas
10 The Right to Censor
The gimmick wasn't too bad for the most part. These guys came on and talked about the excessive violence in wrestling and said that the women's outfits were too skimpy, so they were good for a few laughs anyway. Too skimpy? Sex sells!
9 Road Warrior Animal And Heidenreich
Just even the name itself screams bad. "Road Warrior Animal and Heidenreich." Yeah that sounds like two people that would get involved together, right? Who comes up with these names?
8 Booker T And Rob Van Dam
This was another example of the black hole the WWE found themselves in with tag teams. They obviously didn't know what to do with either of these guys, so they just made a tag team out of them. After winning the championship they held the belt for just 35 days. That's more (or less) than enough reason to put them on this list.
7 Stone Cold” Steve Austin And The Undertaker
6 Ric Flair And “Rowdy” Roddy Piper
5 The Rock And The Undertaker
This is the second time on this list for both of these all time greats, showing once again that with tag teams it's more about how they work together than individually. Individually, these two are insane wrestlers, inspiring millions of WWE fans.
4 Kenzo Suzuki And Rene Dupree
3 Michael McGillicutty And David Otunga
2 John Cena And David Otunga
1 Rikishi and Rico
This was just a super bad team. Rikishi, the rump-shaking master of the stink face, and Rico, his stylin' manager, beat Billy and Chuck for the title and held it for 16 days. These may have been the dumbest sixteen days of wrestling and that's saying a lot. The gimmick was as stupid as the reign itself.
Billy and Chuck got the belt back, making this all seem like a bad dream that sadly actually happened.
