JWP Tag Team Championship History

The JWP Tag Team Championship is the tag team title in JWP. It was created in August 1992 when Mayumi Ozaki & Cutie Suzuki beat Dynamite Kansai & Sumiko Saito in a tournament final. It is currently the oldest active title in joshi puroresu. It currently is unified with the Daily Sports Women’s Tag Team Championship, a title created & recognized by the Japanese newspaper Daily Sports. The Daily Sports titles were created on August 3, 2008 when then-JWP Tag Team Champions Tsubasa Kuragaki & Kayoko Haruyama won a tournament to become the first champions. All JWP Tag Team Champions since then are also recognized as Daily Sports Tag Team Champions as the titles are currently unified.
