Current champions The Viking Raiders

The WWE Raw Tag Team Championship is a professional wrestling world tag team championship contested in WWE on the Raw brand. Introduced as the WWE Tag Team Championship, it was WWE's third world tag team title, and sixth tag team title overall. After WWE bought the promotions of Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) and World Championship Wrestling (WCW), and unified the WCW Tag Team Championship into its own title at Survivor Series 2001, it split its roster into two brands, Raw and SmackDown. As WWE's original World Tag Team Championship was designated exclusive to the Raw brand, SmackDown introduced the WWE Tag Team Championship as its own championship.[1][2]

In 2007, after the initiation of the ECW brand, the title was shared between the SmackDown and ECW brands, thus inter-brand matches could take place for the title.[3] In 2009, the title was unified with the World Tag Team Championship by The Colóns (Carlito and Primo) at WrestleMania XXV and became recognized as the "Unified WWE Tag Team Championship" until August 2010 when the World Tag Team Championship was decommissioned in favor of continuing the lineage of the WWE Tag Team Championship. In 2016, WWE reintroduced its brand split and the championship became exclusive to Raw. It was subsequently renamed to Raw Tag Team Championship after SmackDown introduced its SmackDown Tag Team Championship.

The championship is generally contested in professional wrestling matches, in which participants execute scripted finishes rather than contend in direct competition. The inaugural champions were Kurt Angle and Chris Benoit, who won the title in a tournament final at No Mercy on October 20, 2002. The current champions are The Viking Raiders (Erik and Ivar), who are in their first reign. They defeated Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode on the October 14, 2019 episode of Monday Night Raw.

As of December 6, 2019, there have been 78 reigns between 61 teams composed of 89 individual champions, and one vacancy. The team of Cesaro and Sheamus have the most reigns at 4, while individually, Cesaro and Seth Rollins are tied for the most reigns at five. The New Day (Big E, Kofi Kingston, and Xavier Woods) have the longest reign at 483 days and are also the only team to hold the championship for over one consecutive year, while John Cena and The Miz have the shortest reign as a team at 9 minutes, due to The Corre invoking their rematch clause immediately after losing the title. As a team, The New Day also have the longest combined reign at 532 days, while Kingston individually has the longest combined reign at 817 days (533 and 818 days, respectively, as recognized by WWE). Nicholas is the youngest champion with this title and in WWE history at 10 years old, while Billy Gunn is the oldest champion at age 50.
