Not the first two singles wrestlers to team together...

Who were the first recognized tag team. Two wrestlers that were most widely known for wrestling together in tag matches, rather than two singles wrestler teaming. The Sharpe brothers? When did tag team wrestling become a division in wrestling, rather than a gimmick match attraction?

Seriously though maybe a Welch Bros combination of Herb and Roy.

My first thought was the Fabulous Kangaroos, but the Duseks probably pre-dated them, it just depends when they actually started teaming exclusively.  They started in the '30s but that might have been as singles.  And there were 4 of them in various incarnations.

The Duseks were definitely teaming before the Kangaroos.  Tag team wrestling gained a lot of momentum in the 1940s after a few years of "team wrestling" in the 1930s that was basically tornado rules and both members of a team had to be pinned before the match was over.  The Duseks started teaming in the 1940s and teamed through most of the 1950s before their last tag match around 1960.  The most prominent tag team amongst the Duseks was by far Ernie and Emil.  I don't think Al Costello and Roy Heffernan started teaming until the mid-1950s, with their tag career going well beyond 1960.

The Duseks likely were the first major stable/tag team , I wouldn't know at the moment of any other team until the Sharpe's came along that got over in such a capacity. It's almost weird that the Baillargeons never really used the tag team gimmick that much. Other than them you only have the wrestling families like the Zaharias clan, the Garibaldis etc. who should come into consideration.
