Tag team

Tag team wrestling is a type of professional wrestling in which matches are contested between teams of multiple wrestlers. A tag team may be made up of wrestlers who normally wrestle in singles competition, but more commonly are made of established teams who wrestle regularly as a unit and have a team name and identity.

In most team matches, only one competitor per team is allowed in the ring at a time. This status as the active or legal wrestler may be transferred by physical contact, most commonly a palm-to-palm "tag" which resembles a high five.

The team-based match has been a mainstay of professional wrestling since the mid twentieth century, and most promotions have sanctioned a championship division for tag teams.

The term "tag team" has since become used in common parlance to describe two or more people who alternate or cooperate in participation in an activity, and "tag-teaming" to describe the act of alternating with an ally, e.g. a couple tag-teaming in an argument with another person.

Tag Team (group)

Tag Team was an American hip hop/ pop rap duo from Atlanta, Georgia, active from 1993 up to 1995. The duo was made up of Cecil Glenn (DC the Brain Supreme) and Steve Gibson (Steve Roll'n) who met at Manual High School in their hometown of Denver, Colorado. They are best known for their #1 R&B and #2 Hot 100 single, " Whoomp! (There It Is)", which was released in 1993. With no other major chart activity after "Whoomp! (There It Is)", except for two versions of their hit, they are considered a one hit wonder. Tag Team also contributed the song "Pig Power in the House", featured in the 1995 film Gordy.
