May is Tag Team Appreciation Month on Canadian Bulldog's World, with nearly more than 70 unique and interesting articles on the art of tag team wrestling.
When it comes to top tag team performers, there are obviously some wrestlers that are more comfortable (and successful) at it than others. Some wrestlers thrive in tag teams and some don't seem to care for the match style.
But some wrestlers have been able to thrive in more than one top tag team over the years, and this week.... that's who we are celebrating.
In selecting the Top 50 Tag Team Specialists, Canadian Bulldog's World considered the following criteria:
Was the competitor part of more than one MEMORABLE tag team?
Were they able to adapt their style to be part of various teams?
Were the teams successful in their chosen promotion(s)?
Overall, was the wrestler considered to be a "tag team competitor"?
One note: Quite often, two singles wrestlers team up for a couple of weeks (or something nights) to become "tag team champions" for a week or two. We do not consider these to be Tag Team Specialists... unless, of course, they were also part of more successful and permanent teams.

Although Christian is best known for his pairing with Edge, capturing the WWF/E Tag Team Championship seven times, he has also teamed with a number of other partners. These include fellow Canadians Chris Jericho and Lance Storm, as well as partners Tyson Tomko, AJ Styles and Sting in TNA.
