Current Champions

La Parka Jr. & Octagon, 32nd Champion

La Parka Jr. & Octagon were the most recent champions, but this title is considered unofficially defunct.

History of Championship

While being a national commission regulated championship, it has primarily been held and defended in AAA since AAA's formation. AAA moved away from using the national championships in the late 2000s. La Parka and Octagon would defend the championship once every other year on non-televised shows until the championship went quiet.

Records for this championship are sparse before 1982. It appears to have existed before that period, but it was not a championship defended in EMLL and so there were few records of the championship in the media. Thru 1975, an annual commission list of recognized champions did not include the tag team titles. EMLL would occasionally feature it's own Arena Mexico Tag Team Championship; some of the early reigns listed for this championship may actually be for that one. It's possible the formation of LLI spurred creation (or increased interest) in this championship, but the exact official origin is currently unclear.

Magazine Golpe 4 mentions Karloff Lagarde & Rene Guajardo were champions until losing to Rayo de Jalisco and an unspecified partner on October 25, 1963. However, the dates in the rest of the future seem inexact or inaccurate and may be wrong, and it seems to be referring to that Arena Mexico Tag Team championship.

The Mendozas title reign in 1982 should be considered the start of proven championship reigns. Everything prior was likely for a championship, but it's not certain they held the same championship.

From December 1995 until August of 1997, this championship was a source of confusion. Father/son champions Juventud Guerrera and Fuerza Guerrera held the titles in 1995, but the titles were declared vacant when Fuerza left AAA. AAA held a decision match for the vacant title on 1996.01.12 in Neza, where Juventud Guerrera and new partner Psicosis defeated Volador and El Mexicano for the vacant belts. Later that year, after Juventud also left AAA, the commission invalidated that championship match, deciding that the Guerreras were still champions because they never actually lost the titles in a match. In August of that same year, the commission re-vacated the championship for the same reason it originally did - Juvi and Fuerza still did not wrestle in the same promotion and could not team up. Both the Fuerza/Psicosis and the second Psicosis/Juvi reigns are not listed in the lineage due to the commission's decisions.

AAA did not fill the championship again until 1997.
