Tag teams that never reached their potential

Some tag teams look very good on paper and when you see them on TV, but are not able to be as good/great as some think they would.

What are some examples of tag teams that never reached their potential?

I have to nominate Big Show and Undertaker.

The idea of them teaming up seemed really awesome, and though they were two-time tag team champs, they never really meshed.

1. They never saw eye-to-eye, as evidenced by when Taker left Show high and dry when they lost to the Rock and Sock Connection the first time.

2. They held the titles for only 21 days combined.

By contrast, when Big Show teamed up with the other Brother of Destruction, that ended up being what this should have been- a dominant tag-team capable of destroying all opponents.

Re: Tag teams that never reached their potential

I would say the Rockers by virtue of them never winning the tag team title. Damn broken ring ropes screwed over their potential reign.

I always liked the Beverly Brothers too. Can't put my finger on it.

I always thought that Kendrick & London could have done much more. Both are very talented and could have been a new version of the Hardys.

Re: Tag teams that never reached their potential

I agree with Cryme Tyme, people can knock their gimmick but that's what got them over in the first place. They reminded me alot of Los Guerrero's, with the cheating aspect of their gimmick. I think they could have been so much more than they were.

Re: Tag teams that never reached their potential

The Hass (Charlie & Russ) brothers, by all accounts they had excellent chemistry together (no shock there really, them being brothers), but Russ' shock death put a stop to any dreams of the 2 hitting the big time together.

Re: Tag teams that never reached their potential

I thought that The World's Greatest Tag Team was cut abruptly and could have done much better, especially being aligned with Angle. Charlie Haas as a single wrestler has been laughable and Shelton Benjamin was just thrown around the mid-card for six years.

Idol Stevens & KC James
I thought they were underrated as far as their in-ring ability is concerned. They weren't on the main roster for very long and I wish they had kept them together longer. I thought they gelled well together.

Lo Down (D-Lo Brown & Chaz)
If they weren't saddled with Tiger Ali Singh, I think they had the chemistry to become a quality face team.
