After Ring of Honor swept this award last year, both WWE and TNA put quite a bit more emphasis on their tag team divisions this year. As a result, both of those companies are represented again in this category.
Runners-up: The World Tag Team Champions of the World (Christopher Daniels & Kazarian)
While most tag teams are focused on winning championship gold, these two men were out for something more personal. Their goal in 2012 was to make life a living hell for AJ Styles and they succeeded in that task. Outside the ring, they first made allegations that AJ had an affair with TNA President Dixie Carter. Then they made it appear that a drug addict was pregnant with AJ's child. While AJ eventually proved all of these allegations false, they had an impact on his psyche which has left his career in a major state of confusion as we enter 2013. The two men also had some success in the ring as well as they won the TNA World Tag Team Championship on two separate occasions.
