TAG TEAM 101
In 1901 the first tag team match was held in the United States, in San Francisco.
San Francisco promoters introduced tag team wrestling as a way of improving the sport’s entertainment value.
While tag team wrestling is now a traditional mainstay in American Professional Wrestling, the innovation didn’t become very popular outside San Francisco until the 1930’s.
The first “World” tag team championship was also crowned in San Francisco in the early 1950’s.
Tag team wrestling is a type of Professional Wrestling match in which the matches are contested between teams of multiple wrestlers.
A tag team may be made up of wrestlers who normally wrestle in singles competition, but more commonly tag teams are made up of established wrestlers who wrestle regularly as a unit and have a team name and identity.
In most tag team matches, only one competitor per team is allowed in the ring at a time.
