This is a difficult question to answer of course, because who really knows what criteria you can use to define the GREATEST anything in wrestling. Are we going by number of titles won, by the quality of their matches, the characters, the longevity, the competition, or some jumbled up combination of all those and other factors.

Considering the overall combination and lumping it into how entertaining I thought a tag team was, I would put Edge and Christian up near the top of the list. I haven't watched long enough to claim that they are the greatest ever, but they had a great combination of things. They had a good look, they had good heat, they were funny, they could cut a good promo, they put on some memorable matches (the TLC matches come to mind immediately) and they won the titles multiple times and stayed as a team off an on for a long period of time.

I'm not sure how you can compare teams from different era to each other, but I would certainly rank them as among the top few teams of the modern or current era.

Hey Zeds - this what you had in mind in terms of people "doing stuff" to the board?

The Fantastics were one of my favorites, and quite underrated by many. They weren't especially flashy or outrageous -- just two guys who could flat-out GO, whip out double-team moves at warp speed and hang with anybody. Hell, anybody who could have great matches with the Sheepherders deserves immense respect.

The Miracle Violence Connection ("Dr. Death" Steve Williams and Terry Gordy). This was Gordy before the injuries took their toll, and Doc tossing people around like footballs, and lord help whoever was on the other side of the ring.

I'm not sure where the Jumping Bomb Angels fit into the pecking order of 80's joshi... but on this side of the Pacific, they were like nothing anyone had ever seen before.

The British Bulldogs were, of course, stellar.

And as my guilty pleasure... they weren't what you'd call major talents in the ring, but damn if I didn't love the Wild Samoans (Afa and Sika).

I think you have to take a bunch of major factors into consideration as Aphrodities Reflection was saying. I would say longevity, titles won, ability to work together as a team, and heat generated would be the main four I would use. So in the end, while I may have been entertained by Warlord and The Barbarian, I don't think I would put them on a greatest of all time list. The same may go for Edge and Christian, although this was during the span of years I didn't watch WWF/E, so I don't have that good an idea about them. (If they were still together today it may be different.)

If I had to narrow down a list, here's my top 5:

1. Legion of Doom
2. Arn and Ole
3. Midnight Express
4. Hart Foundation
5. Demolition (I think they beat out Harlem Heat for the list only because, ironically, I never thought Booker and Stevie ever really generated very much heat.)

God, I was a mark for the Rockers before I even knew what it meant to be one.

I think E&C, the Dudleys, and the Hardys all deserve honorable mention just for the legacy of the TLC matches.

What??? No one has mentioned The Rock N' Sock Connection!!! They may have been short lived, but I would put these 2 on my list before I put 2 Man Power Trip or 2 Canadian Chrises.

Hey, Rock N' Sock have one of the highest rated segments in all of WWE history.

But let's not forget...

LOD
The Funks
The Von Erichs
Demolition
The Hart Foundation
Arn and Ole
E&C
The Duds
The Hardyz
Harlem Heat
The British Bulldogs
Volkoff and Shiek
The Freebirds
The Rockers
The Outsiders
The Killer Bees (ok I'm stretching on that one)

And I dug Mikey Whipwreck and Tajiri.

My favorite all-time team would be Dick the Bruiser and the Crusher. Nick Bockwinkel and Ray Stevens were probably the finest pure wrestling tag team. These two teams had some brutal battles in the AWA, in what could be easily termed as "a clash of styles".

The Road Warriors, Tully Blanchard/Arn Anderson and the Steiners round out my top five.

Current era team: Edge and Christian

Favorite all-star team: Mega-Powers (Hogan/Savage)

Guilty pleasure team: The Dynamic Dudes

For pure entertainment. I have to say Killer Bees, Killer Bees, Killer Bees!!!! Personally they highly entertained me.
I would have to judge teams not on wrestling or mic skills but on the "Oh, F**k Yes!" factor. That's when they came out and my response would be..."Oh, F**k Yes!"

1)Road Warriors/LOD
2)Demolition
3)The Hart Foundation
4)Edge & Christian
5)The Killer Bees
And an extra special appearance By Los Conquistadors and British Bulldogs.

Canada definitely had some awesome tag teams, here's my short list...

1) E & C (because they're funny AND they can wrestle!)
2) The Hart Foundation (the 80s version I grew up with, I looked at them, and well, they just don't suck)
3) The OTHER Hart Foundation (the US hatin' 90s version, because, other than HHH, nobody got that kind of heat, I think)
4) Owen Hart and ANYBODY (Because I miss him, and well, he got gold with them. My personal fave partner is the British Bulldog, NO real competition came their way and they were TIGHT!)

There you go. I had other favorites, but since I was in 3rd grade when the great tag teams were around my memories are sort of dim.

Road Warriors: They were the ultimate tweeners: bad to the bone with the the sheer attitude, but they wrestled clean for the most part (although they never met an opponent's weapon they don't like using against them). The rush entrance gets any tag team opponent disoriented from the start, and it was so effective that every wrestler today is prepared against it.

Demolition: Vince saw the LOD wreacking havoc in the South, and tried to recruit them for years. Meanwhile, he answered with Ax and Smash (Crush was mediocre). Regarded as Warrior wannabes at first, but as the years went on they might have been better than them.

You forgot the Quebecers, who had more awesome double-team finishers than I can even remember.

Edited to add that this is my 350th post! Hooray!
