If you have grown up with a brother or sister, you will know that there is an innate bond between you and your siblings. You fight, you joke, you squabble, you make up, these are things that siblings naturally have to them.

As the youngest of three, having two older brothers, I know first hand how difficult it can be to get a word in, but wouldn't trade those two for the world.

In the WWE, there has been no shortage of sibling tag-teams, who have used their keen knowledge of one another to help win matches and championship titles in the process. But the WWE have never exactly been afraid of stretching the truth in order to entertain the WWE Universe across the company's various decades.

Here are three sibling teams in WWE that aren't actually related, and two that actually are.

#5 Not actually related: The Basham Brothers

When Doug and Danny Basham debuted on WWE SmackDown in the summer of 2003, the pair quickly made an impact.

Winning the WWE Tag Team Championships just months after their debut, the brothers would dominate with their intense offense, rule-breaking, and using Twin Magic to allow the fresher man to be in the ring.

But despite their use of twin magic, it will shock many fans to know that not only are Doug and Danny not actually twins, but they're also not even related at all.


Instead, Lyle 'Doug' Basham, first met his alleged 'brother' Danny (whose real name is Daniel Holle) when they began training together, before later being paired with Shaniqua on SmackDown.

Shaving their heads and wearing matching ring-gear, it's actually amazing how similar the two actually looked, with their brotherly bond allowing the duo to win championship gold twice, defeating Los Guerreros and Rey Mysterio & RVD.
