The Steiner Brothers reunited in the early 2000s. They were the first tag team to hold the WWF World Tag Tag Team Championship, WCW World Tag Team Championship and IWGP Tag Team Championship.

10-1 Summary

It is no surprise to see who has been included in the top three of WWE’s top 50 greatest tag teams.

On numerous occasions, The Hardy Boyz have shown their level of quality, being active across 1993-2002, 2006-2011, 2014-2017 and 2019-2021.

Their positional ranking is truly deserved having been the only team to have held the WWE/World, WCW, TNA, ROH, RAW and SmackDown Tag Team Championships.


Sat atop the rankings, however, is of course The New Day.

Enjoying a seven-year career, Kofi Kingston, Big E and Xavier Woods are perhaps a more controversial pick, but you simply cannot question the success they’ve had in recent years.
