CMLL World Tag Team Tournament, 1993

From Luchawiki

When EMLL split from the NWA and became CMLL, it formed it's own World Championships. By 1993, all of the major championships had been created, except for the tag team championship. CMLL controlled the Mexican National Tag Team Championship till the AAA split; the usage of that championship probably delayed the need for a CMLL version, and the AAA split probably spurred the championship to be created.

A 16 team tournament was held over a month of CMLL & UWA shows:

1st round: February 26 @ Arena Mexico
2nd round: A = March 2 @ Arena Coliseo, B = March 5 @ Arena Mexico, C = March 6 @ Pista Arena Revolucion, D = March 7 @ El Toreo De Naucalpan
Semi-Finals: E = March 12 @ Arena Mexico, F = March 14 @ El Toreo De Naucalpan
