Re-ranking WWE's 50 greatest tag teams

#5 The Hardy Boyz

Beware of falling Hardys, the high-flying daredevils who risked life and limb in pursuit of tag team glory at the apex of the “Attitude Era.” An integral part of the tag team renaissance of the early 2000s, Matt and Jeff Hardy were part of the six-headed rivalry (along with Edge & Christian and The Dudley Boyz) that gave birth to the Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match, where they pioneered the modern use of the ladder. The reckless abandon with which they practiced their craft won the brothers numerous tag titles as well as several singles championships between them, to say nothing of the special spot in WWE history reserved for only the most extreme competitors. — A.B.
