List of CMLL World Tag Team Champions

The team of La Sombra (left) and Volador Jr. (right), the 29th tag team champions

The CMLL World Tag Team Championship (Campeonato Mundial de Parejas CMLL in Spanish) is a professional wrestling tag team championship promoted by the Mexican Lucha Libre wrestling-based promotion Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL; Spanish for "World Wrestling Council") since 1993.[G] As it is a professional wrestling championship, it is not won legitimately; it is instead won via a scripted ending to a match or awarded to a wrestler because of a storyline. All title matches take place under two out of three falls rules.[G]

In early 1993, then-CMLL booker Antonio Peña decided to leave the promotion and start his own professional wrestling promotion, Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA); when Peña left CMLL, he acquired a number of wrestlers, among them the then-reigning Mexican National Tag Team Champions, Misterioso and Volador, leaving CMLL without a Tag Team title. In response, CMLL created the CMLL World Tag Team Championship to fill the void. On March 3, 1993, Canek and Dr. Wagner Jr. won a tournament to become the first CMLL World Tag Team Champions.[G] The current tag team champions are Negro Casas and Shocker, having defeated the team of La Máscara and Rush on June 13, 2014.[1] This is the sixth reign for Casas and the third for Shocker and they are the 37th overall champions and the 28th championship team. Los Guerreros de la Atlantida (Dragón Rojo Jr. and Último Guerrero) hold the record for longest reign as a team, at a minimum of 640 days. Último Guerrero and Rey Bucanero hold the record for the longest combined reigns of any team: 1,185 days divided over three reigns. Individually, Último Guerrero has held the championship six times for a total of 3,621 days, the longest of any champion. The team of Último Guerrero and Dr. Wagner Jr. held the championship for seven days, the shortest reign of any champion.[Note 1] Negro Casas and Último Guerrero have the most title reigns with six each, while the combinations of Último Guerrero and Rey Bucanero and Averno and Mephisto are the only teams to have won the championship three times.
