The World Tag Team Championship is a professional wrestling world tag team championship created and promoted by the American professional wrestling promotion WWE on the Raw brand. It is one of two tag team championships for WWE's main roster, along with the Tag Team Championship on the SmackDown brand. The current champions are The New Day, who are in their first reign, both as a team and individually.

Originally established by the then-World Wide Wrestling Federation on June 3, 1971 (renamed to World Wrestling Federation in 1979), it served as the only title for tag teams in the promotion until the then-World Wrestling Federation (WWF) bought World Championship Wrestling (WCW) in March 2001, which added their tag team championship. Both titles were unified in November 2001, retiring WCW's championship and continuing WWF's.

In 2002, the company was renamed to WWE and a second WWE Tag Team Championship was established after the introduction of the WWE brand extension, where wrestlers and championships became exclusive to a WWE brand. Both titles were unified in 2009 into the "Unified WWE Tag Team Championship", but remained independently active until the World Tag Team Championship was decommissioned in 2010. The championship was contested in professional wrestling matches. Bouts for the title headlined WWF events including In Your House 3, Fully Loaded: In Your House, and 2001's Backlash. The inaugural champions were the team of Luke Graham and Tarzan Tyler, and the final champions were The Hart Dynasty.
