This version of the WWE Tag Team Championship was formed in 2010 when the WWE World Tag Team Championship which were WWEs original Tag Team Titles and at this point defended on WWE Raw, was unified with the WWE Tag Team Championship (SmackDown) to form the WWE Unified Tag Team Championship.

As the Unified WWE Tag Team Champions, the champions could appear on and defend the titles on any WWE brand. On August 16, 2010, the World Tag Team Championship was decommissioned in favor of continuing the lineage of the WWE Tag Team Championship following the presentation of new championship belts to then-champions David Hart Smith and Tyson Kidd of The Hart Dynasty. On August 18, 2014, the WWE Tag Team Championships' designs (along with the rest of the championships in WWE) were updated with the new logo. As a result of the 2016 draft, the championship became exclusive to Raw with a subsequent rename, and SmackDown created the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship as a counterpart title.
