The championship is generally contested in professional wrestling matches, in which participants execute worked finishes. Introduced on January 23, 2013, the inaugural champions were The British Ambition (Adrian Neville & Oliver Grey).

History

The championship was introduced on the January 23, 2013, episode of NXT where it was announced by special guest Shawn Michaels that there would be a tournament to crown the inaugural champions.

On the January 31, 2013, the British Ambition (Adrian Neville and Oliver Grey) defeated The Wyatt Family (Luke Harper and Erick Rowan) to become the inaugural champions. However, in the first defense of the title, Neville and Bo Dallas defended the NXT Tag Team title against the Wyatt Family due Grey being injured, where they lost. Dallas is not recognized as champion. On June 20, Neville and Corey Graves defeated The Wyatt Family for the titles, making Neville the first person to hold the title on more than one occasion. On June 8, 2016, The Revival (Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder) became the first team to hold the championship on more than one occasion when they defeated American Alpha (Chad Gable and Jason Jordan) at NXT TakeOver: The End.

Reigns

As of June 17, 2021, there have been 23 reigns between 20 teams composed of 41 individual champions, and two vacancies. The Undisputed Era as a stable have the most reigns at three, while individually, stable member Kyle O'Reilly has the most reigns, also at three. The inaugural champions were the British Ambition (Adrian Neville and Oliver Grey). The team with the longest reign is The Ascension (Conor O'Brian/Konnor and Rick Victor/Viktor), who held the title for 364 days, while the shortest reign belongs to Moustache Mountain (Tyler Bate and Trent Seven), who held the title for 2 days. However, due to tape delays, which are the dates that WWE officially recognizes, they recognize that The Ascension's reign was 343 days and that Moustache Mountain's reign was 22 days, which are still the longest and shortest reigns regardless. Tyler Bate holds the record as the youngest champion when he won it at 21, while the oldest is Bobby Fish when he won it at 42.
