The MizR-Truth

On this page, you find the full Title History for the World Tag Team Championship, with all Championship Info, Statistics, the Belt Design changes through the years, and the full list of Title Reigns, along with dates, events, and reign durations.

The World Tag Team Championship is contested in World Wrestling Entertainment on the Raw brand, by men wrestlers.

The championship was first established on October 3, 2002, and the inaugural champions were Kurt Angle & Chris Benoit.

The championships were created by SmackDown General Manager Stephanie McMahon when it was decided that the World Tag Team Championships would be exclusive to the Raw brand. The shrewd executive declared that the first champions would be the duo that survived a brutal tournament. Since that time, many great tandems have staked claim to the coveted titles, including D-Generation X, John Morrison & The Miz and Los Guerreros.

The title was renamed the Raw Tag Team Championship following the 2016 WWE Brand Extension Draft. On the April 15, 2024 episode of Raw, the title was renamed to the World Tag Team Championship.

The World Tag Team Championship ('71-'10) was previously unified into this championship.

The current champions are the team of The Awesome Truth (The Miz and R-Truth), who won the title at WWE WrestleMania XL on April 6, 2024, and have been reigning for 75 days (This was a Six-Pack Ladder Match for both the Raw Tag Team Championship and the SmackDown Tag Team Championship, with both sets of titles hung separately. On April 15, 2024, the Raw Tag Team Championship was renamed as World Tag Team Championship.).
