Dynamite Duumvirate Tag Team Title Tournament[edit]

The Dynamite Duumvirate Tag Team Title Tournament (DDT4) is an annual tag team tournament contested for the PWG World Tag Team Championship. If the title isn't vacant, the reigning Champions were forced to enter the tournament and defend their titles in every one of their matches. However, this tradition was changed in 2011, when the tournament was instead used to determine the number one contenders to the PWG World Tag Team Champions.

DDT4 (2007)[edit]

The first ever DDT4 was held on May 19 and 20, 2007, in Burbank, California for the vacated PWG World Tag Team Championship.[6][7]
