In the days before the internet and before fans would bitch, moan, and complain that certain names weren't getting chance that they thought their favorites deserved. There were certain wrestlers who did their best work in Tag teams and were an asset in a team but a liability not in one. Now I am not saying that tag team wrestlers still don't exist today, but they aren't as prevalent as they used to be. If you go back in time names like Bobby Eaton, Stan Lane, Robert Gibson, Pat Patterson, Michael Hayes, Rick Steiner, Kevin Nash, Christian, and a whole host of other names had their best years as one half of a tag team.
But if you look in a modern wrestling a long list is very hard to formulate on the same subject matter. However, like I mentioned their are some talent who either are better in a team or had their best years in a team. Names like Zack Ryder, Heath Slater, Kalisto, Curtis Axel, Kofi Kingston, Big E, Robbie E, James Storm, and a few others that could come to mind. The point is not everyone can reach the pinnacle as a singles wrestlers which is why the other championships should be treated like a World title especially for the tag teams, because that is suppose to be the World title for the Tag team division.
If you don't treated it like a World title then why should any team or fan care when someone new gains the championship. Legends were able to gain the championships and they looked at like they were the pinnacle of their profession because they were in a tag team. So why are we unable to do as such in the modern era of wrestling?
