The Mexican National Tag Team Championship (Campeonato Nacional de Parejas) was a national Mexican professional wrestling championship controlled by the "Comisión de Box y Lucha Libre Mexico D.F." (Mexico City Boxing and Wrestling Commission) and contested for by tag teams only. The championship was created in 1957 and promoted regularly until 2003, and intermittently until 2011 when the last known champion defense took place. Empresa Mexicana de Lucha Libre (EMLL) had control of the championship from its creation until 1992, at which point it was transferred to AAA.[c] The championship history up until 1982 is only partially known, with periods of times where it is unclear who held the championship, but it is generally accepted that the lineage began in 1957 when Los Hermanos Shadow (The Shadow Brothers; Blue Demon and Black Shadow) won an eight-man tournament to be crowned champions.[d]

In the mid-1990s there was confusion about who was recognized as champions for a period of time. In December 1995, one half of then-championship team Los Guerreras, Fuerza Guerrera, left AAA, which led to the promotion declaring the title vacant.[e] On January 12, 1996, new champions were crowned as Juventud Guerrera and Psicosis defeated Volador and El Mexicano to claim the titles.[f] When Juventud also left AAA, the Comisión de Box y Lucha Libre decided that Los Guerreras were never officially stripped of the championship, refusing to recognize Juventud Guerrera and Psicosis as champions.[g] In August 1996, the commission finally declared the championship vacant and returned the championship belts to AAA for future use.[g]

The last championship team was Octagón and La Parka[h], who won the championship on June 20, 2006, when they defeated Electroshock and Chessman. In early 2009, AAA stopped promoting any Mexican National Championship, opting to focus on their AAA branded championships.[3] Octagón and La Parka were never stripped of the championship, but did not defend them between after December 25, 2011, rendering the championship inactive after the last known defense.[a] There were been at least 41 championship reigns between 1957 and 2011. Los Destructores (Tony Arce and Vulcano) held the championship three times,[i][j][k] the most of all recognized champions, while Tony Arce holds the individual record with four reigns.[l] Los Metálicos (Oro and Plata) had the shortest verified reign, six days in December 1991.[m] Octagón and La Paka's reign lasted 3,110 days, the longest known reign of any champions.[n] As it was a professional wrestling championship, it was not won legitimately; it was instead won via a scripted ending to a match or awarded to a wrestler because of a storyline.[o] All title matches took place under two out of three falls rules.[p]

1997 Mexican National Tag Team Title Tournament[edit]

In 1997, the then-reigning champions Fuerza Guerrera and Juventud Guerrera began working for different promotions, causing the championship to be vacated by AAA.[e] They held a one-night eight-team tournament on July 20, 1997, at the El Toreo de Naucalpan bullfighting arena in Naucalpan, Mexico State.[17] Some sources mistakenly list the AAA "Young Stars Tag Team" tournament held on May 15, 1997, and broadcast on June 7, as the championship tournament, which was won by the same team, but was not for the vacant championship.[18]
