The ROH Tag Team Championship was introduced at Unscripted on September 21, 2002, where ROH held a tournament to crown the first champions. At the time, ROH did not have title belts, and instead presented Christopher Daniels & Donovan Morgan, the winners of the tournament, with a trophy.[1]

The title became the ROH World Tag Team Championship after then champions Austin Aries & Roderick Strong defeated Naruki Doi & Masato Yoshino on July 9, 2006, while on a tour in Japan with Dragon Gate and Pro Wrestling Noah.[2] Since then, the title has also been defended in the United Kingdom.

Since originating in 2002, the title belts were introduced in 2003 and redesigned in 2005, 2010, 2012, 2018, and 2023. On March 31, 2023, the sixth belt design debuted at Supercard of Honor.[3]

Belt designsEdit

ROH World Tag Team Championship belts (left-to-right): second design (2005–2010, 2022–2023), third design (2010-2012), fourth design (2012-2017) with The Young Bucks and Bobby Fish.

The fifth design of the ROH World Tag Team Championship from years 2017 to 2022 is sort of like a circle like repetitive round crown on all 5 plates of the belt that is gold with red and silver diamonds all around the center and side plates (2-side plates per side equaling to 4-side plates total) with also gold wording in the middle with black outlining on them and on the side of the belts plates that say ROH Tag Team but in the main middle center plate separating it from the sides has the extra words World and champions in the middle.[5]


Overall, there have been 65 reigns among 67 different wrestlers and 38 different teams. The inaugural champions were The Prophecy (Christopher Daniels & Donovan Morgan), who defeated "The American Dragon" & Michael Modest on September 21, 2002, to become the champions. The team of Jay Lethal & Jonathan Gresham have the longest reign as champions with their first reign lasting 441 days. The Briscoes (Jay Briscoe & Mark Briscoe) hold the record for the most reigns with 13 (both as a team and individually).

The Lucha Brothers (Penta El Zero Miedo and Rey Fénix) are the current champions in their first reign, both as a team and individually. They defeated Top Flight (Dante Martin and Darius Martin), The Kingdom (Matt Taven and Mike Bennett), Aussie Open (Mark Davis and Kyle Fletcher), and La Facción Ingobernable (Rush and Dralístico) in a "Reach for the Sky" ladder match at Supercard of Honor on March 31, 2023, in Los Angeles, California to win the vacant titles.
