Following the title's introduction in 1971, Luke Graham and Tarzan Tyler became the inaugural champions on June 3. Then, in 1979, the name of the promotion was changed to World Wrestling Federation, thus the title was renamed the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) World Tag Team Championship.

After the WWF/WWE name change in 2002, the championship was subsequently referred to as the World Wrestling Enterainment (WWE) Tag Team Championship. Then, during a period of open free agency after the Brand Extension, 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 a new WWE Tag Team Championship and commissioned it to be the exclusive tag team title for the SmackDown! brand. With the introduction of the World Heavyweight Championship on the RAW brand after the WWE Championship was moved to the SmackDown! brand, the Tag Team Championship on RAW was now being referred to as the World Tag Team Championship. This was done so that the names of both tag team titles would mirror the names of the top championships on their respective brands. However, when the WWE Championship and World Heavyweight Championship switched brands during the 2005 Draft Lottery, neither of the tag team titles were renamed.
