    Criteria:

    1. Only WWE teams were eligible.
    2. Teams were rated only on their accomplishments while in WWE.
    3. Eligibility began with the first recognized World Tag Team Champions, Luke Graham & Tarzan Tyler, who won the titles on June 3, 1971.
    4. Rankings were based on everything from longevity to cultural impact. Personal biases may have also crept in.

    Considering how difficult it is to rank literally every tag team over a 40 year period, it's not that bad of a list.

    London and Kendrick held the titles for over a year? They should be top 20 at Least.

    I'm biased, but I really like the Hart Foundation, yet #2 seems like a reach. Otherwise I can't complain.

    Well, as is the case whenever a list like this is compiled, there are some I think should be higher, some lower and some that shouldn't be on the list. As a whole, looking over this list, I think it's a good one.

    As to Edge & Christian being #1, no complaints here as they have as much claim to it as anyone else on the list and more so than most.

    Of those who I think should've been higher up, nobody sticks out to me more than the Steiner Brothers.

    Of those I think should've been lower on the list, The Blackjacks are VASTLY too high up for a team with a single 74 day run.

    Of those I think shouldn't be on the list at all, it's hard to pick who should be discarded the most between The Bushwhackers, Killer Bees or the Twin Towers. I know the Bushwhackers, AKA the Sheepherders, did well outside of WWE but they were crap while in WWE.

    Had no idea their run was so short.

    Some tag teams that should have been included in my opinion. Tony Garea & Rick Martel - 2 time WWF tag team champions, Mr. Fuji & Mr. Saito - 3 time wwf tag team champions, The Strongbow Brothers - two time wwf tag team champions. One Qualification I would have had was them being Champions at least That's my opinion
