Date wonMarch 16, 2019

The title was officially announced in a press release on August 30, 2016, and marked the first new title created by ROH in six years, following the 2010 creation of the ROH World Television Championship.[1][5][6] ROH promoted the title as the first time in nearly 25 years that a major American promotion had had a six-man tag team title.[7] The championship belts were redesigned in January 2018.[8]

Like most professional wrestling championships, the title is won as a result of a match with a predetermined outcome. There have been eight reigns shared among six teams and 19 wrestlers. Villain Enterprises (Brody King, Marty Scurll and PCO) are the current champions in their first reign both as a team and individually. They defeated The Kingdom (Matt Taven, TK O'Ryan and Vinny Marseglia) at the Ring of Honor Wrestling tapings on March 16, 2019 in Sunrise Manor, Nevada to win the titles.

Championship tournamentEdit

The tournament to crown the inaugural ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champions took place between September 30 and December 2.[1] The tournament featured participants from the Mexican Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) and Japanese New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW) promotions, both of which ROH had partnerships with. ROH noted how six-man tag team matches were a staple of Mexican lucha libre and how NJPW had recently created its own six-man tag team title, the NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Championship, which had first been won by a trio made up of NJPW wrestler Toru Yano and the ROH tag team The Briscoes (Jay Briscoe and Mark Briscoe).[5] Lio Rush was originally announced for the tournament, but ended up being replaced by NJPW wrestler Kushida.[9] However, Rush eventually returned to the team, replacing ACH in the final due to his departure from ROH.[10] The tournament started on September 30 at the All Star Extravaganza VIII pay-per-view (PPV),[11] with the remaining first round and semifinal matches taking place at the October 1 and 29 tapings of the weekly Ring of Honor Wrestling program.[12][13] The final of the tournament took place at the Final Battle PPV.[1]
