Historia

Antes de formar una pareja en la TNA, Harris y Storm habían hecho equipo algunas veces en promociones independientes. Su primera lucha como equipo en la TNA fue el 26 de junio de 2002 en un PPV semanal, derrotando a The Dupps, haciendo equipo desde entonces.[2]

El 18 de septiembre, AMW participó en un Gauntlet for the Gold match de 20 hombres por el vacante Campeonato Mundial en Parejas de la NWA, donde AMW eliminó finalmente al equipo Disciples of The New Church (Brian Lee & Slash), ganando sus primeros títulos en pareja de la NWA.[4] Tras esto, empezaron un feudo con Lee & Slash, defeniendo en numerosas ocasiones el título, hasta que lo perdieron el 13 de noviembre.[1] [5] Sin emabrgo, les derrotaron el 8 de enero de 2003, ganando por segunda vez el campeonato.[1] [4] [6]

Sin emabrgo, lo perdieron dos semanas después ante Triple X (Low Ki & Elix Skipper).[1] [7] El 26 de marzo, el equipo empezó a tener problemas, pues Harris empezó a pelear demasiadas veces en combates en solitario.[1] [8] El 9 de abril, esos problemas aumentaron, pues se creyó que Harris se había unido a Sports Entertainment Xtreme (S.E.X.) al ser encontrado en los vestuarios del equipo[1] [9] y el 23 de abril, ya que Storm abandonó a Harris durante una lucha contra Elix Skipper & Christopher Daniels.[1] [10] Ambos se enfrentaron entre sí el 7 de mayo, ganando Storm la lucha y, tras ésta, se dieron las manos.[1] [11] Harris teamed up with Chris Sabin in the number one contenders' Anarchy Alliance tag team tournament with the winners getting a title shot at the NWA World Tag Team Championship.[1] [12] Harris and Sabin qualified in the first round, but in the second round, Harris' partner James Storm replaced Sabin and the duo won the second round match. After the match, Harris refused to join S.E.X. and reaffirmed his partnership with Storm.[1] [13] On June 11, AMW won the Anarchy Alliance tournament by defeating David Young and Tracy Brookshaw in the finals and getting themselves a title shot at the NWA World Tag Team Championship.[1] [14]

On June 25, they finally defeated Triple X in a great steel cage match to win their third NWA World Tag Team Championship. This was a historic match in the history of TNA's tag team division and AMW would become popular.[1] [4] [15] They began feuding with the team of Simon Diamond and Johnny Swinger against whom they had two title defenses in a row.[1] [16] [17] On the August 20 PPV, they lost a non-title match Bullrope match to Diamond and Swinger which earned the duo a tag title match.[1] [18] The next week, AMW dropped the titles to Diamond and Swinger.[1] [19]

In early 2004, they feuded with Red Shirt Security (Kevin Northcutt and Legend) after AMW defeated New York Connection (Glen Gilberti and David Young).[1] [20] On the January 21 PPV, they lost to Red Shirt Security in a number one contender's tag team match.[1] [21] On June 4 edition of Impact!, AMW defeated Kid Kash and Dallas to win their fourth NWA World Tag Team Championship.[1] [4] [22] They defended the titles against many teams during their fourth reign before losing the titles to The Naturals (Chase Stevens and Andy Douglas) on July 7 PPV in 12 seconds.[1] [23] Two weeks later, they faced Naturals in a Six Sides of Steel match for the titles but lost the match.[1] [24]

They began feuding with Naturals while they also feuded with Triple X. On September 1, Naturals defeated Triple X and AMW in a triple threat tag team match to retain the tag titles.[1] [25] The next week, Storm wasn't cleared to wrestle while Christopher Daniels was injured, so AMW's Harris teamed up with Triple X's Elix Skipper to win the NWA World Tag Team Championship from Naturals.[1] [4] [26] On September 24 edition of Impact!, Storm teamed up with Daniels to win the NWA World Tag Team Championship.[1] [4] [27] They ended up losing the titles to Team Canada (Bobby Roode and Eric Young) on October 15 edition of Impact!.[1] [28] AMW entered a feud with Triple X. They defeated them in an Elimination Last Man Standing match at Victory Road 2004 and in a Six Sides of Steel match at Turning Point 2004 during the feud.[1] [29] [30] At Final Resolution 2005, they defeated Team Canada to win their fifth NWA World Tag Team Championship.[1] [4] [31] They lost the titles to The Naturals on April 29, 2005 edition of Impact!.[1] [32] At Hard Justice 2005, they lost to the Naturals in a rematch for the titles.[33]

At Unbreakable, AMW took part in a fatal four way tag team elimination match challenging The Naturals for the tag team titles, which also involved Team Canada and the team of Johnny Candido and Alex Shelley.[1] [34] On September 15, 2005, AMW turned into a villain by siding with Jeff Jarrett and Team Canada, helping Jarrett win back the NWA World Heavyweight Championship from Raven in Canada.[1] The team then served as enforcers and backup for Jeff Jarrett and Gail Kim. They had also sparked up a rivalry with Team 3D (Brother Ray and Brother Devon), assaulting them and leaving them bloody in the ring when they first debuted and staging a mock funeral for their careers afterwards.[1] At Genesis 2005, Jarrett and AMW lost to Team 3D and Rhino.[1] [35] At Turning Point 2005, they lost to Team 3D in a Tables match.[1] [36] After Team 3D defeated AMW in non-title matches, they got a title shot at Final Resolution 2006, which AMW won and retained the titles.[1] [37]

AMW's sixth and final reign as the NWA Tag Team Champions was also the longest reign in the belt's history since its revived inception in 1998. They became the longest-reigning NWA World Tag Team Champions in TNA history on March 29, 2006, surpassing The Naturals reign of 24 weeks. In the summer of 2006, they feuded with A.J. Styles and Christopher Daniels. They successfully defended the titles against Styles and Daniels at Sacrifice 2006,[1] [38] before dropping the titles to them at Slammiversary 2006.[1] [39] After losing the belts they once again turned into fan favorites and started feuding with The Latin American Xchange (Homicide and Hernandez) in the fall of the year. At Genesis 2006, they unsuccessfully challenged LAX for the NWA Tag Team Championship.[1] [40] At Turning Point 2006, AMW lost a flag match to LAX. When Storm hit Homicide with a beer bottle, glass flew into the eyes of Harris. Storm blamed the loss on Harris.[1] [41] AMW got a re-match on the December 14, 2006 edition of Impact! in a "Titles vs. Team" match with the stipulation that AMW would have to split up if they lost. They lost after Storm deliberately hit Harris with a beer bottle.[3]
