International Talent Better than WWE: Tag Teams

So we continue this little special with the teams. Tag Team wrestling is some of my favorite wrestling. It means that you get to see cool tandems with great gimmicks who can feed off of each other’s energy. WWE has tragically never been a land of Tag Teams. Now that isn’t to say that they have made some great Tag Teams in their years. I can think of Demolition, The Rockers the New Age Outlaws, Edge & Christian, MNM, The Hardy Boyz, just to name a few. But it has always been historical that back in the days of the territory that southern promotions put an emphasis on Tag Team wrestling while northern wrestling (McMahon territory wrestling) focused much more on singles competition.

It is because of this that, with the exception of the ‘top tag team’, the division is treated much like an after thought. If you are a fan of Tag Team wrestling and are tired of watching the same wrestlers squaring off day after day with WWE, fear not because the International wrestling scene has plenty of wrestlers for you to enjoy.

But basically, I am firmly behind the idea that WWE is or should be the pinnacle in which all people strive. I am critical of how they do business, how they treat their talent, and the condescending nature they take against the fans that pay money for their product.

But I do not feel that this is enough! No! For those of you out there who do not know of the alternatives available to you, I would like to start a series that highlights some of the best wrestlers who are either ‘on par with’ or ‘better than’ some WWE talent. Thus, I give you this wrestling special. Continue reading “Wrestling Special: International Talent Better than the WWE: Non-“WWE Model” Wrestlers”
