The BJW Tag Team Championship is a professional wrestling tag team championship owned by the Big Japan Pro Wrestling (BJW). It was created on June 3, 1997, when Takashi Ishikawa and Kengo Kimura defeated Shoji Nakamaki and Takashi Okano in the finals of a five-team scramble tournament to become the first champions. The championship has been the leading tag team championship in the promotion since 1997. The title matches are done with normal rules, but they also can be done by deathmatches. Like most professional wrestling championships, the title is won via the result of a scripted match. Title changes usually happen at BJW-promoted events; although the title has only changed hands twice at a non-BJW event, it has been defended in several other promotions like Combat Zone Wrestling and Fuyuki Army.
