This week, Bell to Belles would like to take the time to celebrate women’s tag team wrestling. Women have teamed up to battle other opponents for decades, but they often take a back seat to their male counterparts.
On the Dec. 24, 2018 edition of RAW, Vince McMahon introduced the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships. The company crowned the inaugural champions, the Boss ‘N’ Hug Connection, at Elimination Chamber 2019.
Many fans may not know that there were tag team titles in the early 80s, as well. In 1983, Velvet McIntyre and Princess Victoria joined WWF and brought along the NWA Women’s World Tag Team Championships. The company bought the rights to the titles but they sadly retired them less than six years later. Unsurprisingly, the lack of established tag teams and lack of women wrestlers in the company, in general, made the titles difficult to sustain on the male-dominant roster.
During the thirty-year hiatus, two single wrestlers paired up to compose most women tag teams for a specific match or feud but the company didn’t have a full-scale division. Thankfully, when the new WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship debuted this slightly improved as legitimate women tag teams have become a norm.
With that said, here is a list of the top five tag teams in WWE history.
