This past weekend, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla held its Threemendous VI event; this is only PWG’s second event since its revival earlier this summer. At Threemendous VI, live from Globe Theatre in Los Angeles, California, 2 teams battled for the vacant PWG World Tag Team Championship. Facing off for the titles were The Kings of the Black Throne, Brody King and Malakai Black, and the team of Black Taurus and Demonic Flamita. Following nearly 12 minutes of tag team action, it was Brody King and Malakai Black that emerged victorious with the PWG world tag team titles in their possession.

Brody King and Malakai Black Win PWG Tag Team Gold
Previously, the PWG World Tag Team Championship was held by The Rascalz, Dezmond Xavier and Zachary Wentz; WWE fans may know them better as NXT Tag Team Champions MSK, Wes Lee and Nash Carter. When the duo signed with WWE, PWG’s tag team titles were rendered vacant. Established in 2004, the PWG World Tag Team Championship has been held by various teams, including members currently signed to major wrestling promotions. These include, but aren’t limited to, The Beaver Boys (Alex Reynolds and John Silver of The Dark Order), The Lucha Brothers, and The Young Bucks.
Though he won PWG tag team gold alongside Brody King, this isn’t the first appearance of Malakai Black in the promotion. This past August, he made his return at Mystery Vortex 7. It was here where he came to the aid of King and PWG World Champion Bandido, who were on the receiving end of an attack by Super Dragon, Black Taurus, and Demonic Flamita. Black is perhaps best known to modern wrestling fans for his current work in All Elite Wrestling and, from 2016 to 2021, WWE. Meanwhile, King has been a prominent fixture in Ring of Honor, working alongside Tony Deppen, Chris Dickinson, and Homicide in VLNCE UNLTD.
Brody King and Malakai Black have history in PWG to varying degrees. For instance, King has participated in the 2018 and 2019 Battle Of Los Angeles tournaments. He also challenged WALTER for the PWG World Championship at Threemendous V in July of the former year. Meanwhile, Black competed in the same tournament in 2016. The PWG World Tag Team Championship marks the first time King and Black won gold in the promotion.
