The WCWA Texas Tag Team Championship was the secondary tag team championship in World Class Championship Wrestling, originally known as the NWA Texas Tag-Team title until 1981 where they were abandoned.[1] The titles were brought back in 1987 as the WCWA Texas Tag-Team titles but once the WCWA joined the USWA the Texas Tag-Team titles were abandoned once again. The title was revived by NWA Southwest in 1998 and is still defended to this day as the NWA Texas Tag Team Championship.[1][2]
