The Ring of Honor (ROH) World Tag Team Championship is the tag team title contested for in the independent professional wrestling promotion Ring of Honor.

History

The ROH Tag Team Championship was introduced at "Unscripted" on September 21, 2002, where ROH held a tournament to crown the first champions. At the time, ROH did not have actually title belts, and instead presented Christopher Daniels and Donovan Morgan, the winners of the tournament, with a trophy.

Dunn | date = 31 March 2006 | quote = Dragon and Modest destroy the tag team title trophy, but the Prophecy now holds all of the Ring of Honor titles]

The title became the ROH World Tag Team Championship after then champions Austin Aries and Roderick Strong defeated Naruki Doi and Masato Yoshino on July 9, 2006 while on a tour in Japan with Dragon Gate. [cite web| url = http://www.rohwrestling.com/titlehistory/ | title = ROH Official Title History | author = rohwrestling.com | date = 9 July | year = 2006 | quote = Aries & Strong defeated Masato Yoshino & Naruki Doi in Japan on 7/9/06 to make the ROH Tag Titles into World Tag Team Titles] Since then, the title has also been defended in the United Kingdom.

Current champions

The current champions are Kevin Steen and El Generico, who are in their first reign as the champions. They defeated Jimmy Jacobs and Tyler Black at ROH's 9th Unititled PPV on September 19, 2008.

Title history

"† Note: The Kings of Wrestling defended the championship at CZW's "Last Team Standing". However, since ROH did not sanction the match, they refused to recognize the defense. [cite web|url= http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/Article.aspx?id=926 |title= Newswire for the Week of October 15th |author= ROHwrestling.com |date= 16 October 2006 |quote=This title defense was not sanctioned by ROH and will not count as a title defense.] "
