The NXT Tag Team Championship is a tag division championship in the WTX Universe. It is the tag team championship of the NXT brand and was first introduced on 1st May 2013 during an episode of NXT.

History

The NXT Tag Team Championships debuted on 1st May 2013 to make up for NXT being the only brand with a tag division and no tag team championships. NXT's top tag teams D-Generation X (Triple H & Shawn Michaels) and The New Age Outlaws (Road Dogg & Billy Gunn) were made the top contenders and fought for the championship with Michaels & Triple H winning and becoming the first ever champions. They currently hold the record for shortest reigning champions as they lost them just 2 weeks later to the ECW Originals (Tommy Dreamer & Sabu.)

As part of the ECW takeover that took place between May and August 2013, Dreamer & Sabu changed the NXT Tag Team Championships to the ECW Tag Team Championships complete with a new design.

Upon the repossession of NXT the ECW Tag Team Championships were reverted back to the NXT Tag Team Championships complete with a new appearance.

On March 1st, they were retired for the ECW World Tag Team Championship as NXT was replaced by ECW.
