Greatest Tag Matches in Company History

Post by supersonic » Sun Nov 06, 2016 1:14 am

After revisiting KENTA & Richards vs. Aries & Strong this weekend, I find this to be a topic worth exploring. What would be considered the best tag matches in ROH's 15-year history?

Caveats: 2-on-2 showdowns, no gimmick matches

Of course I'll start with my top 3 through 2006, all of which I consider MOTYC:

Low Ki & Samoa Joe vs. Homicide & Kenta Kobashi - Unforgettable
Austin Aries & Roderick Strong vs. Briscoe Bros. - Unified
KENTA & Davey Richards vs. Austin Aries & Roderick Strong - Honor Reclaims Boston

Other ****+ classics through November 2006 include:

Austin Aries & Jack Evans vs. Samoa Joe & Bryan Danielson - Third Anniversary Celebration Pt. 2
Samoa Joe & Jay Lethal vs. Low Ki & Homicide - Punk: The Final Chapter
Austin Aries & Roderick Strong vs. Bryan Danielson & Jay Lethal - Tag Wars 2006
Bryan Danielson & Samoa Joe vs. KENTA & Naomichi Marufuji - Best in the World 2006
Austin Aries & Jack Evans vs. Matt Sydal & AJ Styles - Supercard of Honor
Austin Aries & Roderick Strong vs. Samoa Joe & Matt Sydal - Weekend of Champions Night 1

There has to be a few Ring Crew Express or Dark City Fight Club matches on the list. If only Bobby Dempsey and Grizzly Redwood had a larger body of work together.

If gimmick matches count Ladder War 1 followed by the DBD V Night 1 Street Fight are my favorites. If we're just talking regular tag matches I'd have to go with either the Unforgettable tag or the Tokyo Summit Japanese tag.

Kings of Wrestling vs Briscoes - The Big Bang

They were talking about no-gimnick matches, so they weren't counting Ladder matches.
