The WWE Tag Team Championship, est. 2002.

When the WWF Tag Team Championship became the exclusive property of Monday Night Raw, then-Smackdown! GM, Stephanie McMahon introduced the WWE Tag Team Championship.

At this time, the WWF Tag Team Championship became known as the unbranded "World Tag Team Championship." This was partially done so that its name could mirror "World Heavyweight Championship" on Raw, while Smackdown! had the WWE Championship and similarly-named WWE Tag Team Championship.

The WWE Tag Team Championship was first decided via an eight-team Tag Team tournament. Chris Benoit and Kurt Angle defeated Edge and Rey Mysterio in the tournament finals at WWE No Mercy 2002 to become the inaugural WWE Tag Team Champions.

Currently, the WWE tag Team Championship is unified with the World Tag Team Championship. Together, they are the WWE Unified Tag Team Championship.
