  • NWA World Six-Man Tag Team Championship

The WCW World Six-Man Tag Team Championship was a short-lived championship contested in World Championship Wrestling throughout 1991. It was considered a revived version of the NWA World Six-Man Tag Team Championship that was used in Jim Crockett Promotions; however, unlike the former version, which was often held by main eventers in between singles title feuds, this title was mostly used to push midcarders. The only men to win the title twice are Ricky Morton and Tommy Rich. It was abandoned in November 1991.[1]

Months later, on the May 23rd & 30th editions of "WCW Magazine" during WCW Worldwide, announcer Eric Bischoff mentioned that the Six-Man Tag Team Titles would be on the line at Beach Blast 1992, when Bobby Eaton, Arn Anderson, & Steve Austin faced Barry Windham, Dustin Rhodes, & Nikita Koloff. The idea to bring back the titles was apparently changed, as the match ended up a standard six-man tag match.
