Shut up!

—Smosh's signature intro


Smosh is a professional wrestling tag team consisting of comedy duo Anthony Padilla and Ian Hecox. They are currently signed to YouTube Viral Wrestling (YVW), Apex Caliber Wrestling (ACW) on the RAMPAGE brand, and Fiction Wrestling Entertainment (FWE) on the Blitzkrieg brand, where they are the current FWE World Tag Team Champions in their first reign. They are considered to be part of the X-Family.

During its original run, Padilla and Hecox worked as a tag team before they expanded to become a mainstay in YVW with new additions like "Atomic" Mari Takahashi, David "Lasercorn" Moss, Matthew Sohinki, and Joshua "Jovenshire" Ovenshire in 2011 to form Smosh Alliance before the stable quietly disbanded in early 2015 after Padilla and Hecox were put on hiatus due to injury.

Overall, they are six-time world tag team champions between YouTube Wrestling and FWE, having won the YouTube Worldwide Tag Team Championship five times and the FWE World Tag Team Championship once. Both men also won singles championships during their runs, with Padilla becoming a two-time world champion in his own right and Hecox become a world champion once, especially becoming the first pair to win a world championship as a tag team after Smosh successfully cashed in their Instant Viral briefcase on then-YouTube Viral World Champion PewDiePie at Social Media Slam in 2013.
