A little controversy in the scoring on that last question (Morales vs Bruno was interrupted by whom - if you guessed George Steele you scored the points if you guessed "curfew" you did not because I asked "by whom" and not "by what") Hope that made sense.

El Olympico 33

Srossi 27

Lobo 20

Carpetbeggar 16

FreebirdsForever 12

DC Soulchild10

Sin 9

DogFacedGremlin 4

One Fan Gang 4

Wong Lee 4

The fore-runner to the World Wide Wrestling Federation World Tag Team Championship was called the US Tag Title and then later on the WWWF International Tag Team Title. What event made the WWWF "hold a tag team tournament" which in turn led to the crowning of Tarzan Tyler & Luke Graham as recognized champions and starting a new title lineage.

The WWWF re-joined the NWA in '71. A title "tournament" was held in New Orleans that June.

Rejoining the NWA seems right.  I believe the tournament winners defeated the combination of The Sheik and Dick the Bruiser in the finals.

I'm going to say that The Mongols, who were the International Tag Team Champions, left the WWWF with the belts, so a "tournament" was held to name replacement tag team champs.

It's worth a shot.

The tag champs, the Mongols left the WWWF, taking the belts with them.
A tag team "tournament" was then held, won by Graham & Tyler.

The Mongols left the territory with the titles in 1971 so the WWWF held the tournament to crown the new tag champs Tyler & Graham.

Those who guessed that the Mongols left the territory with the WWWF International Tag team Title belts have scored the points.

Even after Graham & Tyler won the tourney there was feeling that the Mongols were "uncrowned champions" so in their title reign Graham & Tyler then defeated The Mongols to legitimize their championship claim.
