Best Theme Music in Wrestling History

Stone Cold Steve Austin

There are many Superstars throughout the history of wrestling. There are many things that make a Superstar. For example, there are the wrestling moves and the wrestling gear, but one of the most important things that really make a Superstar stand out is the theme music that they use to enter the arena before their matches. Below is the list of theme music that I personally feel is some of the best of all time. Some themes might include numerous ones by a single Superstar, some might sound similar and some might have been used by more than one Superstar. Readers can feel free to suggest any theme music in the comments section and if I agree with you, then I will add that theme to the list.

Greatest Tag Teams in Wrestling History

Edge & Christian

I came across an article that ranked WWE’s top 50 greatest tag teams; the article was published on WWE.com on October 1, 2013. This article only consisted of tag teams from WWE’s history, which means that there were no tag teams from WCW’s, ECW’s or any other wrestling company’s history. Tag teams that made the list were teams like The Steiners, The Brothers of Destruction, The Rockers, The Dudley Boyz, Legion of Doom, The Hardy Boyz, Demolition, The Hart Foundation, Edge & Christian, just to name a few. The article also features a link to a photo gallery showing photos of some of the tag teams that made the list, including one tag team that just barely missed making the list. Below are lists of tag teams that did not make the list that I feel are some of the greatest tag teams of all time; not just throughout WWE history, but the entire history of wrestling. I highly encourage the people who are reading this article to list some tag teams as well.
