Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of February 17th, 2014
1. Los Ben Dejos (Eddie Rios & Jay Cruz)-The NEW PWX Tag Team Champions had one hell of a weekend. After winning the Tag Team Titles in a Three on Two Handicap Match vs. The Worst Case Scenario & Tommy Thomas. They then defeated The Worst Case Scenario again in straight up tag team competition to retain the titles. These Dudleyville trainees are on fire right now with their first ever #1 ranking. 3 rd in the online poll.
2. Team IOU (Kerry Awful & Nick Iggy)-After winning the online poll and getting an honorable mention last week, they took that momentum down to NWA SAW in Millersville,TN where they defeated Mayhem to win the Southern Tag Team Titles. They are 3-1 overall the last 2 weeks and 3-0 in straight up tag team matches. With shows as a team almost every single week,it’s going to be impossible to keep them out of the #1 spot for much longer. 1 st in the online poll for the 2 nd straight week.
3. PPRay (Peter Avalon & Ray Rosas)-After being ranked #2 last week, they fall slightly to the #3 spot after teaming with Joey Ryan to win a 6 Man Tag Team Match vs. The Fallen Empire & Cedric the Hitman at AWS. They continue to dominate most California indies and so the question remains,can they move that success over to PWG as well?A #1 ranking could be on the horizon in 2014 for this young tag team.
4. Country Jacked (Adam Page & Corey Hollis)-The former #1 in the Tag Team Top 5 teamed up once again this week to defeat “Eddie and The Edwards” (Roderick Strong & Trent ?) in a big tag team match on IPPV. They are still undefeated as a tag team. Their inactivity as a team recently is likely the only thing that hurt their ranking this week.
5. The Hooligans (Devin & Mason Cutter)-What more can be said of these Bearded Bullies?They dominated 2013 and then struggled a bit in 2014,but that hasn’t slowed them down at all. With 7 matches over the last 2 weeks and a record of 4-3 overall (2-1 this week),they continue to be one of the most prominent tag teams in the U.S. Their only loss this week at Beyond Wrestling was vs. Juicy Product. #4 in the online poll.
1 st Honorable Mention. Black Hand Warriors (Michael Magnuson & David Delorean)-Retained the WLW Tag Team Titles. 2 nd in the online poll.
