484 days. That’s a brand new record that The Usos have broken as the longest-reigning WWE tag team champions.
The brothers won the Smackdown Tag Team titles during the Money In The Bank Kickoff show last year on July 18, beating Rey and Dominik Mysterio and then on May 20 of this year they beat RK-Bro for the Raw Tag Team titles in a winner-take-all match on Raw, taking possession of both sets of titles.
The previous record-holders, The New Day, held the Raw Tag Team titles for 483 days and Kingston and Woods had the opportunity to reclaim their titles and keep their record this past Friday on Smackdown but came up short in their challenge.
“Officially the best team in WWE …EVER,” the brothers tweeted, along with the hashtag #WeTheOnes.
Jimmy and Jey held the Raw Tag Team titles on three different occasions with a total of 436 days as champions and counting while they had five different reigns as Smackdown Tag Team champions with 863 days and counting as champions.
With those statistics, it’s hard to argue their self-proclaimed “best team” title!
