WWE RAW Tag Team Championship (2016 – Present)
The WWE Raw Tag Team Championship is a professional wrestling world tag team championship created and promoted by the American professional wrestling promotion WWE on the Raw brand. It is the sixth overall male tag team championship to have existed in the WWE. The title is one of two male tag team championships for WWE’s main roster, along with the SmackDown Tag Team Championship on the SmackDown brand. The current champions are Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman.
The championship was originally established as the WWE Tag Team Championship on October 20, 2002, and the team of Kurt Angle and Chris Benoit were the inaugural champions. It was introduced for the SmackDown brand as a second title for tag teams in the promotion to complement WWE’s original World Tag Team Championship, which became exclusive to Raw. Both titles were unified in 2009 and were collectively referred to as the “Unified WWE Tag Team Championship” while officially remaining independently active until the World Tag Team Championship was formally decommissioned in 2010. As a result of the 2016 draft, the championship became exclusive to Raw with a subsequent rename, and SmackDown created the SmackDown Tag Team Championship as a counterpart title.
