Nine competitors who came back to win championship gold

The New Age Outlaws’ dethroning of WWE Tag Team Champions Cody Rhodes & Goldust at Royal Rumble may have prompted some members of the WWE Universe to invoke the word “fluke,” but it most certainly prompted chants of “You’ve still got it,” too.

After all, the huge title change — which brought the Rhodeses’ three-month reign to a close — came nearly 14 years after Billy Gunn & Road Dogg last held tandem championships in WWE, making it one of the longest gaps between title wins in WWE history.

Yet, The Outlaws are hardly the first Superstars to go years between title reigns. Check out this list of nine title droughts to see where Gunn & Dogg’s tag championship comeback ranks historically.
