Day One Ish: Usos Set WWE Record as Longest Reigning Tag Team Champions Ever

Usos WWE record reign as tag champs

We knew it was coming but on Monday, November 14th, it was made official. At 484 days and counting, the Usos are now the record-setting longest-reigning tag team champions in WWE history.

In doing so, the twin brothers Jimmy and Jey, surpassed the New Day, who had previously held the record. It was also the New Day, that had a chance to deny history to the Usos when the two teams revived their legendary rivalry last Monday night on Raw. It was the perfect end to a perfectly booked moment as the Usos needed to use everything they had in their arsenal to defeat the team of Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods. History and immortality was on the line as both teams showed immense heart and talent reminding wrestling fans why they are two of the best to ever lace up boots in the tag team scene. Their rivalry will go down as one of the top tag team rivalries in company history and the top since the likes of the Hardys, Dudleys, Edge and Christian. Those three teams truly brought tag team wrestling to the forefront and laid the groundwork for what the Usos and New Day have accomplished since.

The Usos began their WWE careers over 14 years ago – and in that span of time, have become one of the most decorated tag teams in company history. Together, the Usos have enjoyed eight reigns as tag champions, covering over 1,350 days in total. Their current reign has seen them hold the SmackDown tag titles for over 484 days and the Raw tag titles for over 178 days.

It has been a tremendous year for the Bloodline as not only did the Usos make history as the longest-reigning WWE tag team champions, but their Tribal Chief Roman Reigns, also accomplished a historical feat of his own when he became the longest-reigning WWE Universal Champion in January. Reigns broke that record when he hit 504 days as champ. He currently sits at a mark of 806 days as champ, which is good enough for the sixth-longest championship reign in all of WWE history. The Usos’ WWE record 484-day reign as tag champs is the seventh-longest.

The Bloodline is undeniable.
