Team 3d Win Tag Titles For Essays

The Impact World Tag Team Championship is a professional wrestlingchampionship contested for in Impact Wrestling's tag team division. After the formation of TNA in June 2002, the company executives signed a contractual agreement with the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) that allowed them control of the NWA World Heavyweight and World Tag Team Championships.[1] TNA subsequently changed their name to NWA–TNA, making them an official member of the NWA in the process. In May 2007, the NWA ended their five-year partnership with TNA, and thus regained control of the NWA World Heavyweight and World Tag Team Championships.[1] As a result, TNA created the TNA World Heavyweight and World Tag Team Championships, which were unveiled on TNA's online podcastTNA Today on the May 15 and May 17, 2007 editions.[2][3] In the respective editions, the championships were awarded to the last NWA champions under TNA banner by Jeremy Borash and TNA's primary authority figureJim Cornette. The championship was officially presented to the public and awarded to the first official champions, Team 3D (Brother Devon and Brother Ray), on May 17.[3] The championship was renamed to its current name in March 2017 when the promotion adopted its current name.

Title reigns are determined either by professional wrestling matches between different wrestlers involved in pre-existing scripted feuds, plots, and storylines, or by scripted circumstances. Wrestlers were portrayed as either villains or heroes as they followed a series of tension-building events, which culminated in a wrestling match or series of matches for the championship. Reigns that were won on episodes of TNA's primary television program, TNA Impact!, aired on television two to nine days from the date the match was taped. The inaugural champions were Team 3D, who were awarded the championship by being the last NWA World Tag Team Champions under TNA banner. The Wolves (Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards) and Beer Money, Inc. (Bobby Roode and James Storm) hold the record for most reigns as a team, with five. The longest reign as of February 2015 is 7002212000000000000♠212 days, by the team of Beer Money, Inc., who set the record in their fourth reign.

Although the title is a World Tag Team Championship, supposedly only intended for tag teams, three different wrestlers have held the championship by themselves—Samoa Joe, Kurt Angle and Matt Morgan.[4] Joe held the championship during his entire reign alone; however, Angle held the championship alone for 15 days until Sting won a match involving three other competitors to become Angle's partner and Morgan held the championship after (kayfabe) injuring his championship partner. Overall, there have been 43 reigns shared between 38 wrestlers and 27 teams. The current champions are LAX (Ortiz and Santana).

A host of WWE and TNA Superstars past and present will join the cream of the British grappling scene on the city's Flag Market.

And Bully Ray and Devon will face PCW's Tag Team Champions Team Single... in their signature tables match!

The pairing of TNA British Boot Camp 2 finalist Rampage Brown and Worcester's T-Bone have held the belts for two years.

PCW's Heavyweight Champion, the ex-WWE star Chris Masters, will defend his title against another TNA British Boot Camp 2 finalist, Birmingham's monstrous Dave Mastiff.

Former TNA World Heavyweight Champion Mr Anderson, known as Mr Kennedy in WWE, goes head to head with the 'East End Butcher' Sha Samuels.

Two-time TNA X Division Champion Rockstar Spud clashes with PCW's Cruiserweight Champion Bubblegum.

Birmingham's Ryan Smile faces another TNA British Boot Camp 2 finalist in the shape of Scottish prodigy Noam Dar.

Two-time TNA Knockouts Champion Velvet Sky takes on Scottish destroyer Viper, Wigan suplex machine April Davids and Australia's Toni Storm.

The event at 3pm is part of Preston Armed Forces Day, celebrating local regiment the Kings Royal Hussars' homecoming parade.

Last year's show attracted nearly 4,000 fans and PCW owner and promoter Steven Fludder is now aiming for 6,000.

He said: "What better way to show my company off and get new eyes on my product than a free show in front of thousands of people.

"Last year I was proud to show everybody what PCW is and this year I want to raise the bar and show them what an asset to the city of Preston it is."

The Dudley Boyz won 10 tag titles during a six-year spell with WWE, after a record eight reigns as tag team champions in ECW.

One of the most popular pairings of WWE's Attitude Era, they became famous for their hardcore style and love of smashing opponents through tables, and shone in one of the greatest tag team matches in history at WrestleMania 17.

Moving to TNA Wrestling in 2005, where they were rechristened Team 3D after their Dudley Death Drop finishing move, the New York natives went on to clinch the NWA and TNA tag team titles, and twice held NJPW's IWGP Tag Team Championship.

The duo reunited following a spell as singles wrestlers, during which time Bully twice won the TNA World Heavyweight Championship and Devon the TNA Television Championship, and entered the TNA Hall of Fame.
