The NWA International Lightweight Tag Team Championship[1] is a professional wrestling tag team title in Japanese promotion Pro Wrestling Zero1, contested exclusively among junior heavyweight (<100 kg (220 lb)) wrestlers. It was created on December 26, 2003 when Ikuto Hidaka and Dick Togo defeated Naohiro Hoshikawa & Tatsuhito Takaiwa in a tournament final.[2] This was during a time when ZERO1 (then known as Pro Wrestling Zero-One) was a member of the National Wrestling Alliance; since the two organizations' parting in late 2004, the NWA does not recognize or sanction it, though it retains the NWA initials. It is one of two tag team titles in ZERO1, along with the NWA Intercontinental Tag Team Championship, typically contested among heavyweights. There have been a total of 33 recognized individual champions and 22 recognized teams, who have had a combined 24 official reigns.
