Footnotes:
[1]: At WrestleMania XXV on April 5, 2009, Carlito & Primo Colon defeated The Miz and John Morrison to unify Smackdown’s WWE tag team championship with Raw’s World tag team championship.
[2]: Edge and Chris Jericho were given a last-minute WWE unified tag team titles shot right before a scheduled title defense between The Colon brothers and Ted DiBiase Jr. & Cody Rhodes, thus creating an impromptu triangle match. Edge brought the match to an end once he pinned Carlito after a Spear to secure the unified tag team titles for himself and Chris Jericho.
[3]: This was a triple-threat elimination match including CM Punk & Luke Gallows. They were eliminated first by Shawn Michaels pinning Punk, but then the Miz pinned Michaels to secure the tag team titles.
[4]: Cody Rhodes & Drew McIntyre won the unified tag team titles in a tag team turmoil match which also included the former tag champs the Hart Dynasty, the Usos, Santino Marella & Vladimir Kozlov, and the team they actually defeated to win the tag titles Evan Bourne and Mark Henry.
[5]: This was a fatal four-way elimination match which also included the former tag champs Heath Slater & Justin Gabriel, the Usos, and Mark Henry & Yoshi Tatsu. However, a timely distraction from John Cena helped Santino pin Gabriel to defeat the Nexus and secure the unified tag team titles.
