Redirected from WHEI United Kingdom Tag Team Championship
The WHEI NXT UK Tag Team Championship is a professional wrestling tag team championship created and promoted by War Hawks Entertainment Inc. for their NXT UK brand. It is the seventh overall male tag team championship for WHEI's roster. Primate & Jimmy Havoc are the current and innaugural champions in their first reign both as a team and as individuals.
The title is currently intended to be the tag team championship for the NXT UK brand. The brand, and the titles that go with it, will debut on Saturday, September 1, 2018. With the first champions set to be crowned on the premire episode.
The title was announced the same day as the NXT UK brand and the other titles for the brand. As with real life WWE, the title was announced, but has yet to be revealed. Shortly there after Ironman announced that an 8 Team Tournament would be held to crown the first champions.
The title will debut on the premire of WHEI NXT UK as opposed to at SummerSlam like with the main UK Championship. As with the other championships, only wrestlers from the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australlia, and New Zealand are eligable to comepete for the title... except for the non-british War Raiders (which Ironman didn't find out about until recently). to avoid comparisions with the WWE European title.

Championship belt design Edit
The championship seems to take a few cues from the main roster tag team championships while keeping itself unique from every other belt on the roster. The strap is black like the regular NXT Tag Team Championship, however the centerplate is circular like the main roster belts.
The centerplate seperates itself from the other tag team championships by having intricate designs on the plate along with two globes, one above and below the NXT Logo. Like the main UK Championship, there is a horse and a lion on either side of the logo, representing the British royal coat of arms. There is also a banner above the logo reading "UK Tag Team" and another logo below reading "Champions". Unlike the other UK Championships the title does not feature the crown jewels, likely because there is no room.
Much like the updated design of the normal NXT Tag Team Championship that was introduced in 2017, this tag team championship has removable side plates, much like the Cruiserweight and Women's Tag Team Championships. The divider bar for the championship is also larger than the others for some undisernable reason. The side plates for each belt can be removed and replaced with the Champions' or team's logo(s) in lieu of a name plate.
