Over the years, WWE has shown time and again how little they value tag team wrestling.
Vince McMahon has historically gone on record to talk about his issues with it, and when you look at the company’s history with teams, it’s clear to see the lack of effort put into the division.
The company has a formula when it comes to their tag teams, and that usually entails pairing up two random singles stars before inevitably breaking them up. This is usually done with plans for a future feud in mind, and is never in the best interests of the tag team division.
However, there have been rare instances in the past where Vince McMahon saw value in a union and kept a team together.
On that note, here are five tag teams that WWE refused to split up.
#5. WWE teased splitting up the Legion of Doom several times but never did
After grouping three individuals together in Kofi Kingston, Big E and Xavier Woods back in 2014, WWE hit a gold mine.
Now in their eighth year together, The New Day have become one of the most successful and popular teams in the history of the company. What’s encouraging is the fact that the promotion has shown no indication of splitting the three, even through Kingston and Big E’s world title successes.
Last year, the draft moved Big E to Raw and away from his allies, but it still didn’t bring the group’s run to an end. Big E was still regularly involved with The New Day and rejoined the squad shortly after losing his title.
With the trio now together again on SmackDown, it seems the group still has plenty of life left in it. After their years of success, Mr. McMahon may have absolutely no intention of ever splitting them up.
