The chamionship was originally introduced as the NWA United States Tag Team Championship in 1967, when the promotion was known as NWA Big Time Wrestling.[3][1] It was later renamed the NWA American Tag Team Championship in 1969.[1] In 1982 Big Time Wrestling, changed their name to World Class Championship Wrestling and the title became the WCCW American Tag Team Championship.[3][1] In 1987 WCCW became World Class Wresting Association and the championship was rebranded as the WCWA World Tag Team Championship.[2] In 1989 the title was won by Cactus Jack and Scott Braddock, where it was transformed into the USWA World Tag Team Championship.[4] As it is a professional wrestling championship, it is won not by actual competition, but by a scripted ending to a match.[a] The WCWA Texas Tag Team Championship served as the secondary tag team championship in the promotion from 1950 to 1989.[6]
