Throughout the years, fans of sports entertainment have enjoyed the controlled chaos of tag-team wrestling. Many present and future Hall of Fame Superstars have been part of a popular duo, including Shawn Michaels (The Rockers), Bret "Hit Man" Hart (The Hart Foundation) and Jeff and Matt Hardy (The Hardy Boys). Some Superstars will forever be remembered for their incredible impact as a team, including The Road Warriors, The Fabulous Freebirds and The Midnight Express. Some teams were a result of the unique, temporary pairing of two singles Superstars, including The Mega Powers (Hulk Hogan and Randy "Macho Man" Savage), and D-Generation X (Triple H and Shawn Michaels).
Allied Powers: The World's Greatest Tag Teams honours all the greatest duos in sports entertainment history, complete with matches from WWE, WCW, NWA, AWA, WCCW and Championship Wrestling from Florida. Packed with profiles of more than 20 historical tag teams and events and 25 tag-team matches, Allied Powers: The World's Greatest Tag Teams gives fans twice the excitement, twice the action and twice the drama.

British Bulldogs vs. Hart Foundation - Bret Hart said on his DVD that eventhough the main eventers like Hogan & Andre were drawing the crowds during this time period, the best matches were between these two teams and this match can validate that point as it was classic tag team wrestling here with both teams building up the pace throughout the match with good double team moves by both men...including the Hart Foundation pulling off a Hart Attack off the top rope at one point.Read more ›
The structure of the DVD is as follows: A certain team is introduced with a 1-2 minute highlight video with archived voiceovers from commentators and promos. There are no interviews with the wrestlers themselves, their peers, or current wrestlers who grew up idolizing them - three aspects which have been staples of WWE compilation DVD's for years. The highlight video is followed up by one match highlighting that team, then on to the next one.
One thing you notice from the jump is that you never know what to expect from one match to the next. Each match/tag team is completely random in terms of the era and federation in which they competed. Just as an example from Disc 1, it goes from the Steiner Brothers to the Hardy Boys to the Fabulous Freebirds. That might make sense if these teams were organized into some sort of countdown of the "Best Tag Teams of All Time," but they're not. The organization of the DVD truly boggles my mind.
On top of that, the matches are nothing special. None of these matches were career-defining for any of these teams - probably because those matches are either featured on other DVD's, or there simply wasn't room for them. If someone picks up this DVD having never seen a certain team perform before, they will get only an unfair glimpse of just how great that team was.
I think it would have been a better idea to organize the best tag team matches either by decade or by federation (AWA/NWA/WCW/WWF/whatever). This type of structure has been done on numerous occasions throughout the rest of WWE's extensive DVD catalog, so it doesn't seem like too much of a stretch. I can't imagine why such a completely disorganized and disappointing DVD was put together.

Great DVD but the inclusion as DX as one of the Greatest Teams Ever is laughable.Published 10 months ago by A. Hall
This Blu Ray was surprisingly inclusive given the many great tag teams to choose from. This is the wrestling equivalent of a sampler platter but it's a darn good sampler.Published 19 months ago by Michael W. Rickard II
