The CWA/AWA International Tag Team Championship (also identified in Pro Wrestling Illustrated magazine as the Mid-Southern International Tag Team Championship and the AWA International Tag Team Championship) was a professional wrestling tag team title defended in the Continental Wrestling Association. It was created in 1985 from the CWA's partnership with the American Wrestling Association. The title was abandoned in 1987 when the CWA was renamed the Championship Wrestling Association, and the original Continental titles were abandoned or unified with others.[1]

  3. ^ The exact date the championship is not documented, which puts the title reign at between 1 day and 21 days.
  4. ^ The exact date the championship was won has not been documented, putting their reign between 5 and 25 days.
