The legendary ‘Boyz’ of pro wrestlingThe art of tag team wrestling is a dying art. Vince McMahon isn’t a fan and the current WWE division is fairly weak. Mind you, it is much stronger than in the 2000's (hello Kenzo Suzuki and Renee Dupree) but the division has seen far better days. The list will not include huge stables like the NWO or DX as they were groups before they were tag teams.Some honorable mentions are the Rockers, the Steiner Brothers, Harlem Heat (Booker T and Stevie Ray) and the original Blackjacks. Without further ado, we give you the best of best tag teams in wrestling history:-
#10 The Midnight Express
Rising up, majorly because of Jim Cornette – Bobby Eaton and Dennis Condrey became one of the top teams in no time flat in Mid-South wrestling – both guys wonderfully talented and gelling well.
Cornette was there as their loud mouthpiece with his tennis racket often used to help them get a win and they loved to be hated by the fans. It was here they kicked off their epic feud with the Rock n’ Roll Express that would carry over to the NWA as they would trade the tag team titles and sell out arenas with their brawls, also winning the Wrestler Observer Newsletter feud of the year for their feud against the fantastics.
When Condrey left in 1987, he was replaced by Stan Lane and this version was even better with Eaton and Lane wrestling like they’d been partners for years and becoming even flashier with the act.
They would hold the U.S. and NWA World tag titles and would even feud with Condrey and Randy Rose as the “Original” Midnight Express. No matter who was in it or where they went, the Express always charged to success with fans and helped boost Cornette to the limelight as well.
