Charlie Haas: WWE's Vince McMahon Sees Tag Team Wrestling As An Added Expense
McMahon isn't a fan
While WWE boasts some of the best tag teams in the world with The Usos and The New Day on the roster, the company doesn't often spotlight tag team wrestling, with WWE management preferring to focus on singles matches.
Speaking on the It's My Wrestling Podcast, former WWE Tag Team Champion Charlie Haas believes this is because Vince McMahon doesn't like tag team wrestling and simply views it as an added expense.
"Here's what we were told towards the end when we split up - Vince doesn't like tag team wrestling, he looks at it as an added expense, as paying for an extra guy on the road. Extra guy in the hotel room. He really doesn't like it and he changed a lot of it over the years. When you're talking about 2002 with the tag teams I think that was a great time. When I was a kid growing up in the 80s got to watch Arn and Tully, Rock 'n' Roll Express, Midnight Express, The Fantastics, The Guerreros, The Dynamic Duo," Haas said.
"Those tag teams meant something you know? If I'm forgetting anyone, I'm sorry. The tag teams meant something I felt when we were there too, but that's all passion. I love the Tag Team stuff you know, I was a fan of it before I became one."
Charlie Haas was a prominent tag team wrestler in WWE with Shelton Benjamin, first as Team Angle and then The World's Greatest Tag Team, during his two runs with the company. Haas also briefly teamed with Rico on his way to becoming a three-time WWE Tag Team Champion, twice with Benjamin and once with the former bail bonds collector.
