When you put four pro wrestlers in a ring, you double the athleticism, mischief, and entertainment. That's the equation behind The Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame: The Tag Teams, the first comprehensive and historical look at wrestling's tag team phenomenon. It contains hundreds of extensive interviews with well-known wrestlers, promoters, and managers — a who's who of wrestling since the 1950s— to reveal tales of pain, measly payoffs, and a trade that was practised as much for love as money. Find fascinating profiles chock full of little known info about top tag teams, as well as humorous anecdotes. With detailed insider information, the authors explain how tag team matches actually work — and why, sometimes, they do not. Casual fans will be anxious to see how their favourites stack up on the list of the top teams of all time. With its impressive collection of rare, historic photos, this book will stand out as a reference source and talking point for years to come.

"Put me down for any book these gentlemen plan on writing in the future." --GeorgiaWrestlingHistory.com
"A slice of American life that doesn't often get the treatment that Johnson and Oliver have to offer." --"Augusta Free Press"
"I probably learned more history from this book than any wrestling book in a long time." --Dave Meltzer, "Wrestling Observer" newsletter
"Part violence, part harmless vaudeville, part skilled athleticism, and part real-life comic strip." --"C-Ville Weekly"
