The TNA World Tag Team Championship is a professional wrestling world tag team championship owned by the Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) promotion. It is primarily contested within TNA's tag team division. It was created and debuted on May 14, 2007 at the taping of TNA's primary television program, TNA Impact!. It was officially introduced worldwide on the May 17, 2007 edition of TNA's online podcast TNA Today.

Like most professional wrestling championships, the title is won as a result of a scripted match. There have been a total of 35 reigns shared between 36 wrestlers and 27 teams. The current champions are The Hardys (Jeff Hardy and Matt Hardy).

Current champions

The current champions are Beer Money (Bobby Roode and James Storm), who are in their record tying fifth reign as a team. Individually, this is Storm's record breaking seventh reign, and Roode's sixth. They defeated The Wolves (Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards) - who share the record of five reigns as a team - on January 31, 2016 in Birmingham, England during the Impact Wrestling tapings, when Storm invoked his Feast or Fired Tag Team Championship contract.

History

The Total Nonstop Action Wrestling promotion formed in May 2002. Later that same year TNA were granted control over the NWA World Heavyweight and World Tag Team Championships by the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) governing body; subsequently becoming an official NWA territory as NWA–TNA. On June 19, 2002, NWA–TNA held its first show; a weekly pay-per-view (PPV) event. The main event of the telecast was a twenty–man Gauntlet for the Gold match—involves all twenty men trying to throw each other over the top rope and down to the floor in order to eliminate them, until there is two men left who wrestle a standard match—to become the first ever TNA–era NWA World Heavyweight Champion. Ken Shamrock defeated Malice to win the vacant championship with Ricky Steamboat as Special Guest Referee at the event. TNA crowned the first TNA–era NWA World Tag Team Champions at their third weekly PPV event on July 3, 2002, when the team of A.J. Styles and Jerry Lynn defeated The Rainbow Express (Bruce and Lenny Lane) in a tournament final to win the championship.
