History

After the Brand Extension in World Wrestling Entertainment, the WWE Undisputed Championship and WWE Women's Championship became the only titles allowed to be defended on both the RAW and SmackDown! brands, while the remaining titles became exclusive to either brand. During a period of open free agency, RAW General Manager Eric Bischoff was able to sign the Tag Team Champions to the RAW brand after they had originally been drafted to the SmackDown! brand. As a result the Tag Team Championship became exclusive to the RAW brand, thus leaving the SmackDown! brand without a tag team title. Following Bischoff's actions, SmackDown! General Manager Stephanie McMahon introduced the new WWE Tag Team Championship and commissioned it to be the exclusive tag team title for the SmackDown! brand. She stated that the inaugural champions would be determined from an eight-team tournament. On October 20, 2002, the team of Kurt Angle and Chris Benoit, defeated Rey Mysterio and Edge at No Mercy 2002 in the tournament final to win the new WWE Tag Team Championship.
