Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of June 2nd, 2014
1. Juicy Product (David Starr & JT Dunn)-After 3 straight weeks at #1, the team took a week off to pursue a couple of big singles matches. The FIP & CZW World Tag Team Champions teamed once again and defeated PWX Tag Team Champions Los Ben Dejos on 5/31 at CZW in Dayton, OH. They have won 7 straight matches as a team as they have balanced great singles victories with (perhaps) even more impressive tag team victories in 2014. Tied for #3 in the online poll.
2. The Hooligans (Devin & Mason Cutter)-The PGP, Zero-1 USA, and JCW Tag Team Champions get the #2 ranking for the 3rd week straight as they defeated Yabo the Clown and Yorick the Jester at PGP to retain the PGP Tag Team Titles and then beat Isaias Velasquez & Danny Cannon on 6/1 at VWAA to retain the JCW Tag Team Titles. Their dominance has been inarguable in 2014 as they still sit at #1 in the Tag Team Top 50 as the year continues to move along. #2 in the online poll.
3. BULLET CLUB (Karl Anderson & Doc Gallows)-The former #1 in the Tag Team Top 5 and the IWGP Tag Team Champions teamed with Tama Tonga, Bad Luck Fale, & Yujiro Takahashi to defeat CHAOS on 5/30, they defeated Captain New Japan & Hiroshi Tanahashi on 5/31, and again defeated Captain New Japan & Hiroshi Tanahashi on 6/1 to go 3-0 on the weekend. They have won 5 straight matches as a team. Tied for #3 in the online poll.
4. Team Single (Rampage Brown & T-Bone)-The PCW Tag Team Champions defeated reDRagon to retain the titles on 5/30 at PCW, they teamed with Joey Hayes to win a Four on Three Handicap Match vs. Al Snow, Danny Hope, Juventud Guerrera, and Mad Man Manson on 5/31 at PCW, and then defeated Legion of Boom (Chris Masters & Dave Rayne) to retain the titles on 5/31 at PCW as well. They were 3-0 on the weekend and have won 15 of their last 16 matches. They have been absolutely unstoppable in the UK this year. #5 in the online poll.
5. The Skywalkers (Robbie Walker & Aaron Sky)-They finally break into the Top 5! The OVW Southern Tag Team Champions defeated Stuart Miles and Jade Dawson at the OVW TV Taping on 5/28 to once again qualify for the poll, but it was the fact that they are the winners of 11 of their last 12 matches (the only non-win being a no contest vs. Dylan Bostic, Roberto De Luna, and Marcus Anthony on 4/16) that got them into the top 5. With them exclusively teaming in OVW, they have not gotten to take their show on tour, but they have dominated their promotion thus far.
People’s Champs. Roscoe Eat Lisa (Mikey McFinnigan & Zakk Sawyers)-Defeated Team B@M! at SNPW on 5/31 and gained 47 votes to win the online voting competition.
