When wrestling fans think of the greatest tag teams in WWE history, they think of Edge & Christian, The Hardy Boyz, D-Generation X, Brothers of Destruction, and so on.
These iconic tag teams won their fair share of championship gold in the WWE. However, it's easy to forget that these 10 duos (mostly short-lived) also managed to win the WWE Tag Team Championships on one occasion.
10 Right to Censor
Right to Censor was a heel faction that lasted from July 2000 to June 2001. Two of its members - Bull Buchanan and The Godfather - managed to win the World Tag Team Championships on the Nov. 6, 2000 episode of Raw Is War over The Hardy Boyz.
The reign only lasted 34 days, however, before Edge and Christian won the titles at the 2000 Armageddon pay-per-view in a Fatal 4-way tag team match. This was the lone Tag Team title reign for the Right to Censor members.
9 9.Too Cool
The "Too Cool" stable featured Grand Master Sexay (the late son of Jerry Lawler), Rikishi and Scotty 2 Hotty. They were an on-again, off-gain group throughout the Attitude and Ruthless Aggression eras.
On the May 29, 2000 episode of Raw Is War, Scotty 2 Hotty and Grand Master Sexay defeated Edge and Christian to become the new World Tag Team Champions. The reign lasted for 27 days, before they dropped the titles to Edge and Christian at the King of the Ring pay-per-view.
8 Paul London & Billy Kidman
It was certainly difficult to keep track of all the WWE Tag Team Championship reigns that were taking place between 2003 and '05, so it's easy to forget that Paul London and Billy Kidman held the titles at one point.
This up-and-coming duo pulled off a big upset over The Dudley Boyz on the July 6, 2004 episode of SmackDown to win the Tag Team Championships - though they dropped the titles just two months later (we'll get to that soon.
Kidman eventually turned heel and betrayed London, which led to the end of their title reign and tag team partnership.
7 Santino Marella & Vladimir Kozlov
Santino Marella portrayed a handful of numerous gimmicks during his WWE career, and as cheesy as they were, it was hard not to love the guy.
It's easy to forget that Marella also teamed up with Vladimir Kozlov, whose main event push as a heel didn't exactly go as planned. Marella and Kozlov won the WWE Tag Team Championships on the Dec. 6, 2010 episode of Raw in a Fatal 4-way tag team bout - dethroning Heath Slater and Justin Gabriel.
Marella and Kozlov's reign was short and sweet. They held onto the championships for a total of 76 days before dropping the titles at the 2011 Elimination Chamber pay-per-view. More on that later.
6 Heidenreich & Road Warrior Animal
Road Warrior Hawk and Road Warrior Animal (The Road Warriors) were among the most accomplished and admired wrestling tag teams in the wrestling world. But it all ended too soon, when Hawk died of a heart attack in 2003.
Road Warrior Animal returned to WWE in 2005 and formed an alliance with Heidenreich. The two reformed The Road Warriors duo, and they defeated MNM at The Great American Bash 2005 to become the new WWE Tag Team Champions.
Animal and Heidenreich held onto the title for three months before dropping them back to MNM on the Oct. 25, 2005 episode of SmackDown. Heidenreich was released from WWE in 2006, thus disbanding the tag team.
Most remember The Hurricane as the tag team partner of Rosey, where they portrayed superhero gimmicks. But you kids probably had no idea that Hurricane briefly teamed up with Kane. It was the most unlikely match imaginable for a tag team, but it worked.
Hurri-Kane defeated The Un-Americans on the Sept. 23, 2002 episode of Raw to win the World Tag Team Championships. Unfortunately, this beloved duo didn't last long. They dropped the titles three weeks later to Christian and Chris Jericho, and the duo split up shortly after.
4 Charlie Haas & Rico
Charlie Haas and Rico only lasted as a tag team for a short period, but these two certainly made the most of their time together. They defeated Rikishi and Scotty 2 Hotty on an April 2004 episode of SmackDown to win the World Tag Team Championships.
It was Haas' third reign with the titles, and the first for Rico. They held onto the belts for 56 days before dropping them to The Dudley Boyz (who lost the titles to London and Kidman shortly after).
After losing the titles, Haas and Rico split up and went their own ways. The latter was let go of WWE in 2004, thus ending any chance of a reunion down the road.
3 Kenzo Suzuki & René Dupreé
Canadian wrestler René Duprée was a young 20-year-old phenom when he first joined the SmackDown roster in 2004. Following a short feud with John Cena, Duprée aligned himself with Kenzo Suzuki - who had signed with WWE that same year.
The two superstars managed to end the aforementioned title reign of Paul London and Billy Kidman, defeating them on the Sept. 7, 2004 episode of SmackDown. The duo held the title for three months before dropping them to Rob Van Dam and Rey Mysterio.
At age 20, Duprée became the youngest WWE Tag Team Champion ever. Of course, Nicholas broke the record (age 10) when he won the titles with Braun Strowman at WrestleMania 34.
It was the lone tag team title reign in WWE for Suzuki, and the second for Duprée.
2 2.The Corre
Heath Slater and Justin Gabriel (part of The Nexus), won the titles on the Oct. 25, 2010 episode of Monday Night Raw - defeating David Otunga and John Cena - whose reign only lasted one day.
However, the odds were stacked against these two when they defended the titles on the aforementioned Dec. 6, 2010 episode of Raw. Sure enough, Slater and Gabriel dropped the titles to Santino and Kozlov, as mentioned above.
1 1.Mankind & Al Snow
Fans who grew up in the Attitude Era certainly remember Mankind's partnerships with Kane and The Rock (The Rock 'n' Sock Connection). But oh, how easy it is to forget that Mankind and Al Snow were the World Tag Team Championships on one occasion, too!
These two won the titles over The Holly Cousins on the Nov. 2, 1999 episode of SmackDown. The Holly Cousins had previously defeated Mankind and The Rock to win the titles.
The reign was extremely short-lived, however. Mankind and Snow dropped the titles six days later to The New Age Outlaws on Raw Is War. And that, ladies and gentlemen, was basically it for the Mankind-Snow tag team.
