WAR World Six-Man Tag Team Championship

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The WAR World Six-Man Tag Team Championship is a tag team title previously contested for in the Japanese professional wrestling promotion Wrestle Association R (WAR).

Genichiro Tenryu had the idea for the title from his stay in World Championship Wrestling, where he held the NWA World Six-Man Tag Team Championship with the Road Warriors during the time he elevated to the top of All Japan Pro Wrestling. This title was essentially WAR's main championship, as it drew both heavyweights and junior heavyweights for competition. The promotion closed in 2000, and the title was abandoned.

Genichiro Tenryu revived the title in 2010, for his new Tenryu Project promotion, as the Tenryu Project 6-Man Tag Team Championship.
