#10 Brian Kendrick and Paul London- 331 days(WWE Tag Team Champions)
Remember Brian Kendrick and Paul London? The high flying duo who wore long shorts and wrestled on the blue brand. The tag team worked like a well-oiled engine and their chemistry was well appreciated worldwide.
Brian and Paul won the tag team titles in 2006 when they defeated MNM for the Tag titles at Judgement Day.
The duo was often accompanied by former WWE Diva, Ashley Massaro. Ashley stayed part of this team for long and was often involved in the ringside drama when the champs feuded with K.C James and Idol Stevens who were then managed by Michelle McCool.
Brian Kendrick and Paul London held on to the prestigious tag title for almost a year as they defeated almost every tag team on the roster in order to retain the titles.
Their reign which lasted for a good 331 days was very well tested by the best of tag teams on the blue brand of the company.
Their reign was at jeopardy when they were asked to defend in a fatal 4-way ladder match at Armageddon in 2007 which involved Dave Taylor and William Regal, The Hardy Boyz and MNM. But the duo was at top of their game as they were able to fend off this mighty challenge and retain the tag titles.
Their significant time as the WWE Tag Team Champions came to an end when they were defeated by Deuce 'n' Domino.
