NWA Bringing Back NWA United States Tag Team Championships

Updated: Aug 9, 2022


The National Wrestling Alliance is bringing back the NWA United States Tag Team Championships.


The titles have a rich history, as they have been held by great teams like The Steiners, The Midnight Express, and The Fabulous Freedbirds.


Now, the NWA is reactivating the titles, and new champions will be crowned at NWA 74. The titles will be exclusively defended on NWA USA.


From NWA:


ST. LOUIS – The National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) has a storied history which includes a number of different championships and belts.


With the recent success of the NWA, owned by William Patrick Corgan, and the level of interest in tag team wrestling seen during the recent Crockett Cup pay-per-views, the NWA is proud to announce we are reviving the NWA United States Tag Team Championships. The new champions will be crowned on night 2 of NWA 74 on Aug. 28, 2022 in a 10 Team Battle Royale match involving several worthy contenders to be announced. This title has a diverse legacy which touched many of the NWA territories of the past as well as some of the most revered legends of tag team wrestling.


“It’s an honor to be able to bring back the NWA United States Tag Team Championships,” said William Patrick Corgan. “Our tag team division is red hot and full of deserving athletes who will now have a chance to make history in this sport. We are also looking at top tier tag teams outside the NWA which could also have an opportunity to compete for the new U.S. tag titles,” Corgan said.


This championship will be defended exclusively on NWA USA, which airs Saturdays at noon EST on Fite TV and the NWA YouTube channel, as well as during NWA pay-per-views. The belts themselves will be unveiled during the two day NWA 74 pay-per-view at the historic Chase Park Plaza Hotel in St. Louis. The NWA 74 anniversary show is the biggest wrestling event of the year for the National Wrestling Alliance where all of our championships will be defended.


Indy Pro Wrestling will provide more information as it becomes available.
