#1 Extreme Horsemen (John Skyler, Steve Corino, & CW Anderson)-A 3-man team gets the #1 spot this week as they represent PWF Crystal Coast as their new champions. The NEW PWF Universal Six-Man Tag Team Champions defeated F1rst Generation (James Anthony, Victor Andrews) and Jack Cicero at PWF on 5/20 in the first round of the title tournament and then defeated The Syndicate in the final to become inaugural champions and to go 2-0 for the week. This 3-man team is a mix of one of the best young talents in the business combined with two of the best veterans still going. With this #1 ranking and possible future title defenses, they now put themselves in the hunt for a great spot in the Tag Team Top 50 at the end of the year if they can continue to team and win together.
#2 Roscoe Eat Lisa (Mikey McFinnegan & Zakk Sawyers @RoscoeEatLisa)-Bark bark gator tits! Roscoe Eat Lisa are inching their way even closer to the top of the Tag Team Top 50 for 2016 as they get yet another ranking this week after defeating two of the best teams on the indies over the weekend. On 5/20 they defeated The Viking War Party (Jake Parnell & Alex Rudolph) at SLA and then beat The Hooligans on 5/21 at SLA to go 2-0 for the week. Beating two of the best tag teams on the indies in itself was huge, but when you combine that with their recent success, you see why this tag team is back in the rankings again at such a high position. They are in the best shape of their lives with Mexico on their radar.
#3 The Batiri (Kodama & Obariyon)-Believe it or not, this is the first ranking ever for The Batiri as they took their talents to Europe and came out looking like gold. They defeated The Facesmashers (Dan Moloney & Wild Boar) at FCP vs Chikara on 5/20, then teamed with Nad Yenolom on 5/21 to defeat The Hunter Brothers (Jim & Lee) & Clint Margera, and then teamed with YENOLOM (Dan Moloney) on 5/22 to defeat Drew Gulak, Travis Banks & Tyler Bate to go 3-0 for the week. The only thing that really kept them out of the top spot this week was that 2 out of their 3 victories were not in straight up two-on-two tags and of course, this DUO is being judged on those victories. That being said, it’s fantastic to see them in the Tag Team Top 5 for the first time and we hope to see this more and more frequently as the year rolls on.
#4 Bomb Shelter (Joseph Schwartz & Zodiak)-The modern day villains of the wrestling world get themselves another ranking after yet another good week on the indies as a team. This tag team defeated the legendary Tracy Smothers & JC Rotten at IWA Mid-South on 5/19 and then teamed with Bill the Butcher & The Carpenter at PCW on 5/22 to defeat Team Money (Brian Blaze, Geter, Johnny Danger & Uncle Money) to go 2-0 for the week. This tag team may be the most dastardly tag team in all of professional wrestling, but one thing is for sure, they continue to make huge strides as they continue to excel as a unit where ever they go.
#5 People’s Champs. The Fellowship (Ronnie Ribs & GA West)-The now EIGHT time People’s Champs (three this year) got on the ballot by defeating Xander Litt & Nathaniel Carr at PWACT on 5/20. 133 votes later and the fans pushed them to the #5 spot all on their own. So not only did The Fellowship succeed by becoming People’s Champs with the fans’ help, they got ranked all because of them. So congrats to The Fellowship on yet another People’s Champs award, but for another ranking as well. You can follow them on Twitter and find out where they’ll be competing week-to-week at:
