This list is ok, I just have 2 problems.

Problem 1 - London and Kendrick should not be so high up on the list. If I remember correctly, they had one of the longest reigns as tag team champions in history! Plus they were highly entertaining while they were here.

Problem 2 - The Dudleyz should be number 1. Period. Regardless what organization they are in or have been to, you can't deny their impact on revolutionizing tag team wrestling! They've been everywhere, held every title (tag), and face about everybody! From their ECW matches and promos, and through their famous TLC matches with the Hardyz and E&C, they've done it all. For goodness sake, They've held the titles 20 plus times!!!

On a WWE/F only list I agree that the New Age Outlaws should probably be number 1. I give them significant points for being a tag team that reached such a level that they could main event shows credibly in a period where Vince had moved on from seriously pushing tag teams. After the 80s, Vince didn't believe in tag teams as draws so he regularly broke up tag teams to turn them into singles stars. The NAO were a money making machine and really broke the WWE tag team mold.

LOD's run with the WWF was basically a flop, there second being a joke, so I have no problem with them being lower on this list than anticipated.

Steiners as well were limited in their WWF run. I'd probably rank their run with the WWF higher than LOD though.

My top WWF/E tag teams:
1) New Age Outlaws
2) Money, Inc.
3) Dudley Boyz
4) Demolition
5) Edge & Christian

The Dudley Boyz is the Greatest Tag-Team of all time. They are 23 time World Tag Team Champions.

They are the only team to have held the WWE Tag-Team Championships, World Tag-Team Championships, ECW Tag-Team Championships, WCW Tag-Team Championships, NWA Tag-Team Championships, TNA Tag-Team Championships, and IWGP Tag Team Championships. They should be No.1.

Ummm, well, on the first page of the list, it explains that only WWE/F teams are included, so that would explain the exclusion of the two teams you mentioned. The criteria are right there. You don't have to agree or like it, but, until you throw together a few hundred million dollars and start your own multi-million dollar conglomorate, you'll have to deal with the fact that in Vince land the genetic jackhammer shall rule.

The Rockers should of been higher.

I think the reason they are out of the top 10 might be that they were the greatest Tag Team never to hold the Tag Team Titles. Shawn Michaels also broke the team up, in one of the biggest Turncote type angles in History. Shawn Micheals to his credit went on to become one of the all time greats as a singles wrestler, and Jennetty went in the opposite direction.

When the Rockers split up, they were that sort of Tag Team who were truly missed and it was a pity they never got back together.

You have to remember that policital issues will come into play on lists like this... The Steiners and Vince do not get on after they refused to play ball with him in the 1990's... They walked rather than wrestle each other... thats gonna colour the list.

Slightly disagree with the 6 placing for the Bulldogs, I'd have swapped them with Demoliton at 3 as they were the ones who really raised the bar tag team wise.

Brothers of Destruction was a gimmick team, it is right they are placed low as they did not enhance the division, only their own careers.

The list clearly states that it is focusing on tag-team's success in WWE/WWF ONLY, not any of their reigns in WCW, NWA, ECW, AWA or anywhere else. That is why The Steiner's, The Road Warriors and The Dudley Boyz are not right at the top (although I think the success The Dudleyz had should definitely make them in the top 3).

The Steiner's weren't in WWE for that long, although they won the belts a couple of times and the vast majoirty of the LOD/Road Warriors' success came outside of the WWE, so its entirely understandable why those teams aren't at the top in the rankings. If success in other company's was included, I have no doubt that the rankings would be different and have pissed less people off. The Road Warriors would almost certainly be at the top, they were the most dominant team in tag-team wrestling history by far.

Edge and Christian are more than worthy of the top spot in this countdown, they were on top and winning titles when WWE's tag ranks were very strong, both guys had incredible charisma and chemistry and they had some of the greatest matches of all time in the ladder and TLC matches with the Hardyz and Dudleyz.

The totally reek of awesomeness!

I believe that HBK & Diesel should be one of the best tag teams of all time. When they split, the had the headline match of Wrestlemania 11 to end the feud, and the sweet chin music that should have been three but wasn't in that match is imo HBK's greatest moment ever. IDK if they ever tag teamed together but Piper and Orton should be in there too. Having a cast on your arm for two years? YES! YES! YES!

I don't understand what the hell you're even saying. Stay on topic?

Everything that is plausible has been said already:

- LOD is too high considering their WWE run was eh.
- New Age Outlaws should be number 1
- E&C are too high and they are only at that spot because of Edge in the HoF
- Dudley Boyz should be Number 2 or 3.
- Everyone else is in acceptable order.
- Demolition is fine where they are, same with the Harts.

Edge and Christian merit the top spot, the list is based on achievements in the WWE and E&C led the rejuvenation of tag team wrestling taking it to a whole new level in the late 90's/early 2000's. They had a long run together during which time they were the dominant team amidst stiff competition from luminaries like the Hardy's Dudleys, APA and Outlaws and both their promos and in-ring skills were very accomplished ensuring they were over with the crowd. They were invlolved in so many iconic moments from that period in WWE ranging from the two epic tlc matches to hanging bib bossman from the cell and all of this justifies their selection.
