RANKED: Top 25 Wrestling Tag Teams Since 1988

25. Strike Force


Tito Santana and Rick Martel formed the effective team known as Strike Force. The 6-foot, 230-pound Martel and 6-foot-2, 235-pound Santana initially partnered in August 1987. Strike Force’s apex occurred on October 27, 1987, when they outworked the Hart Foundation to collect the straps. Although their reign atop the division was brief, Martel and Santana remained championship contenders until they had an irreparable spat at WrestleMania V (and consequently disbanded as a result). Santana became a Hall of Famer on March 13, 2004.

24. The Rockers


The Rockers surprisingly never earned gold. Their failure to win titles notwithstanding, Shawn Michaels and Marty Jannetty excelled in the squared circle by consistently challenging for belts. In addition to their in-ring brilliance, The Rockers had one of the most unforgettable splits in pro wrestling history. After months of bickering, the partnership formally ended on January 12, 1992. This occurred when the 6-foot-1, 225-pound Michaels launched the 5-foot-11, 230-pound Jannetty through a glass window on Brutus Beefcake’s “Barbershop.” Michaels was introduced as a Hall of Famer on April 2, 2011.
