Tag World Grand Prix 2003 was the first Tag World Grand Prix tournament held by Chikara. The tournament ran over two nights, with the preliminary rounds being held on July 5, 2003 at St. John's Auditorium in Allentown, Pennsylvania, and the finals held three weeks later on July 26 at the same venue. Twelve teams entered the tournament with the finals being scheduled in a three-way dance format.
* Due to the height difference between the competitors, the rules of the match were changed so that Arakencito only required a two count to win the match, while Hero and Quackenbush had to score a four count in order to pin him
† As a result of the time limit draw, both teams were eliminated from the tournament
Tag World Grand Prix 2005 ran over three nights, from February 18 through 20, 2005. The first and second rounds took place over the first two nights in Reading, Pennsylvania and Emmaus, Pennsylvania, respectively. The remainder occurred on the third night in Pittston, Pennsylvania. This time the number of participating teams was expanded to 32. BlackJack Marciano was scheduled to enter the tournament as Eddie Kingston's partner, but had to pull out due to an injury. His replacement was decided by a random draw.

The team of Tommy End and Zack Sabre, Jr. was scheduled to enter the tournament, however, Sabre, Jr. no-showed the event and his replacement was decided by a random draw.
