Re-ranking WWE's 50 greatest tag teams

#9 The Wild Samoans

One of the keys to success in attaining greatness as a tag team is having longevity as a unit. And longevity usually breeds trust and confidence between the two partners. Plus, having the same bloodline only fortifies the bond. Afa and Sika of The Wild Samoans had all of the aforementioned characteristics and then some.

Their primitive yet ruthless style inside the squared circle usually made it impossible for opponents to map a strategy, which in turn worked in Afa and Sika’s favor. Having worldwide success wherever their travels took them, The Wild Samoans hit their zenith under the managerial guidance of Capt. Lou Albano in the early 1980’s, when they were WWE Tag Team Champions on three occasions. And the ultimate honor — entry into the WWE Hall of Fame — was bestowed upon Afa and Sika in 2007. — H.F.
