8. World’s Greatest Tag Team
KEVIN POWERS: In 2002, Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin debuted as protégés of Kurt Angle. The two young Superstars were the perfect complement to the 1996 Olympic Gold Medalist, each bringing his impressive amateur background to WWE. Within three months, Haas & Benjamin became WWE Tag Team Champions by defeating Los Guerreros.

Haas & Benjamin were insanely talented inside the squared circle. They were so versatile that they could dominate opponents with their technical prowess, fast-paced style and high-flying abilities. As a unit, their teamwork was cohesive and their skills clicked in a way that reminded the WWE Universe of successful tag teams of yesteryear.Out of Angle’s shadow, Haas & Benjamin reemerged as The World’s Greatest Tag Team. It was a boastful moniker, but the duo often lived up to it as they recaptured the WWE Tag Team Titles and battled serious competition like The APA, Too Cool and Rey Mysterio & Billy Kidman. Although The World’s Greatest Tag Team exited WWE after a brief reconciliation in 2008, their in-ring gifts and solidarity made the duo one of WWE’s best of the past decade.
