Default Do tag teams hold wrestlers back?

Look at the Road Warriors or the Dudleys,sure they did just about everything a tag team can do,but Animal and Hawk never had any singles success and Devon and Bubba Ray are just now getting to have a singles run in the twilight of their careers. Does being in a hugely successful tag team prevent a wrestler from achieving the biggest accomplishment of all? The world title.

Not for all teams.Look at HBK.He was part of a successful/popular tag team and he made a hell of a singles career for himself.















On the other hand,Road Warrior Hawk would have been great as a World Champion.

How about Booker T of the Harlem Heat. 6 times world champ.















Bret hart also come from tag-team.















Edge and Christian from EC















Jeff hardy from Hardy Boyz















JBL from APA.

Tag teams yes, stables no.































Of course there are exceptions. Remember many years ago when Triple H (IC Champion) tagged with Austin who was the WWF Champion and won the tag titles together?































Look at how long the Dudleys and Road Warriors were together. For years. Teams who are only together a few months stand a much better chance of success in singles.

A tag team is usually a learning process. Back in the day older talents would team with younger talent to basically teach the younger guys in what ever field they are lacking. When a tag team comes to business together its because they lack the needed skills to survive solo so it gives guys more time to develop and learn the ropes.

Depends how long they tag for. The Dudley's teamed for far too long but they stayed together because they were over as a team.

No, tag team wrestling helps them become more fully-developed stars. Look at wrestlers like Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart. Without the time in tag team competition, they would never have become the great stars they evolved into later in their careers.

For the most part yes. Singles wrestling is what it's all about,tag team success is nice but being a world champ is most important. Imagine if Bret had stayed with the Hart Foundation the way Animal and Hawk stayed together.
