The WWE Tag Team Championships are the top-tier championship titles for Tag Teams in the WWE E-Fed federation. The titles are currently defended on both brands, making them interbrand championships. The first champions were Vampiro and Batista who defeated Too Cool & Gangstas to become the inaugural champions. Roman Reigns & Wade Barrett are the current champions in their first reign as a team with this being the second reign for both men individually. They defeated Fratelli d'Italia on the June 13, 2016 episode of Raw to win the championships. The Motor City Machine Guns (Alex Shelley & Chris Sabin) and Fratelli d'Italia share the record for most reigns (as a team) with three. The shortest reign lasted six days when Travis Kooper and his hand chosen partner DDP lost them to Kofi Kingston & Kevin Thorn on an episode of RAW. Jimmy Jacobs currently hold the record for longest reign with 331 days, a reign he partially held with Seth Rollins and partially with Kevin Steen. Travis Kooper currently holds the record for the longest combined days (as an individual) with 536 days. Kooper also currently holds the record for most WWE Tag Team Championships (with five reigns).
