NWA Intercontinental Tag Team Championship
Details
Current champion(s) Shinjiro Otani & Akebono
Date won January 27, 2010
Promotion Pro Wrestling Zero1
Date established June 14, 2001

The NWA Intercontinental Tag Team Championship[1] is a professional wrestling tag team title in Japanese promotion Pro Wrestling Zero1, typically reserved for (but not exclusive to) heavyweight (>100 kg (220 lb)) wrestlers. It was created on June 14, 2001, three months after then Pro Wrestling Zero-One's creation, when Samoa Joe & Keiji Sakoda (though Zero1 has since ceased to recognize their reign)[2][3][4] defeated Yuuki Ishikawa & Katsumi Usuda.[5] This was during a time when Zero-One was a member of the National Wrestling Alliance; since the two organizations' parting in late 2004, the NWA does not recognize or sanction it, though it retains the NWA initials. It is one of two tag team titles currently active in Zero1, along with the NWA International Lightweight Tag Team Championship, contested exclusively among junior heavyweights. There have been a total of 30 recognized individual champions and 22 recognized teams, who have had a combined 25 official reigns.
