Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of February 10th, 2014
1. Chicks Using Nasty Tactics (Annie Social & Kimber Lee)-If you feel like laughing or being offended, shorten their tag team name into initials. That being said this team is no joke. On 2/8 they teamed up to defeat Midwest Militia (Jessicka Havok & Sassy Stephie) for the WSU Tag Team Titles. They then defended and retained those same titles vs. Christina Von Eerie & Nevaeh. They become the first women ranked in the Tag Team Top 5 (Global Green Gangsters were ranked in the Indy Power Rankings Top10 in 2013 before TTT5 existed) on the strength of this dominant weekend.
2. PPRay (Peter Avalon & Ray Rosas)-After a first round exit from PWG’s DDT4 last week, this West Coast tag team refocused and came out with a strong weekend. On 2/7 at EWF they defeated B-Boy & Mondo Vega. They then defended their CWF Hollywood Heritage Tag Team Titles vs. The Family Stone and once again came out on top. Look for this type of success to continue with their busy schedule across various California promotions.
3. White America (Reed Bentley, Adam Gooch, & Trik Davis)-For the first time a 3 man group gets into the Tag Team Top 5 as a collective unit. Making the Fabulous Freebirds proud, this 3 man team went undefeated over the weekend at IWA Mid-South, both in singles, and tag team action. It was the tag team victories over Frank Wyatt & Alex Castle and Mean & Rotten (Mitch Page & Ian Rotten) that pushed them into the Top 5 this week. They came in 2nd in the online poll this week.
4. BULLET CLUB (Karl Anderson & Doc Gallows)-The IWGP Tag Team Champions continued their success this week as they won a 6 man tag on 2/4 and then retained their titles vs. Killer Elite Squad (Lance Hoyt & DH Smith) on 2/9. The former #1 in the Indy Power Rankings are continuing their path to their first #1 in the Tag Team Top 5. It will take more weeks like this to accomplish that goal!
5. The Front (Ace Delic & Niles Sozio)-It was one HUGE win that gave the front their top 5 ranking this week. Their victory vs. Juicy Product (David Starr & JT Dunn), OI4K (Jake & Dave Crist), and Nation of Intoxication in a 4 Way at CZW on 2/8. That victory fueled their first ever ranking as a team and if they can win the CZW Tag Team Titles, it clearly won’t be their last.
1st Honorable Mention. Beaver Boys (John Silver & Alex Reynolds)-Retained the CZW titles at CZW’s 15th Anniversary Show vs. Murderers’ Row
2nd Honorable Mention. Team IOU (Nick Iggy & Kerry Awful)-2-1 weekend with the 2 wins in straight up tags while the loss was a 6 man tag. They were EASILY #1 in the new online poll this week.
