Footnotes:
[1]: This was a tournament final.
[2]: The Suicide Blondes consisted of Chris Candido, Johnny Hotbody & Chris Michaels. Since there were three members of the team, all three members were allowed to defend the titles using the Freebird Rule.
[3]: The titles were vacated once Chris Candido left ECW for Smoky Mountain Wrestling.
[4]: This was a tournament final.
[5]: Johnny Hotbody and Tony Stetson were awarded the titles due to the fact that the Dark Patriot and Eddie Gilbert were leaving ECW.
[6]: Shane Douglas substituted for Johnny Gunn in this match.
[7]: This was a three-way match which also included the team of Rick Steiner & The Tazmaniac.
[8]: This was a three-way match which also included the team of The Gangstas.
[9]: Scorpio defeated Rocco Rock in a match also for Scorpio’s ECW World TV title, choosing Sandman as his partner.
[10]: Whipwreck defeated Scorpio in a match for his TV and Tag Team titles; Cactus Jack appointed himself as Mikey’s partner.
[11]: This match aired on February 6, 1996, on ECW Hardcore TV.
[12]: The Dudley Boyz defeated John Kronus in a handicap match due to Perry Saturn being injured.
[13]: Due to Mustafa Saed leaving ECW, the Dudley Boyz were once again crowned ECW world tag team champions.
[14]: This was a three-way match which also involved the team of Balls Mahoney & Axl Rotten.
[15]: D-Von Dudley defeated Rob Van Dam in a singles match to win the titles.
[16]: This was a three-way dance which also involved the team of Tommy Dreamer & Masato Tanaka. On April 22, 2000, Justin Credible won the ECW world heavyweight title and therefore was forced to vacate the title. By this point, Lance Storm had left ECW for WCW anyway, so Credible threw down his tag belt as a sign that he was abandoning the title.
[17]: Tajiri and Whipwreck won the titles in a three-way tournament final which also included the teams of Tommy Dreamer & Jerry Lynn and Simon Diamond & Johnny Swinger.
[18]: On April 11, 2001, ECW shut down and the WWF buys their assets, which makes Doring and Roadkill the final REAL ECW world tag team champions.
