#1 Dishonorable Impact (Chelsea Green & Taeler Hendrix)-The inaugural Queens of Combat Tag Team Champions become the first female tag team to grab #1 in the Tag Team Top 5 in quite some time. The duo of Chelsea Green and Taeler Hendrix ran through a loaded tournament as they beat Kiera Hogan & Aja Perera, Rachael Ellering & Nevaeh, and finally Leva Bates & Mia Yim to finally win the tournament and the titles. The QOC Tag Team Champions swept the official voters’ ballots as each and every official voter had them at #1 on their ballot this week. This is a team that with their first #1 ranking now has a ton of momentum on their side. Time will tell if they continue to build and pick up further rankings as 2017 rolls on.
#2 People’s Champs. The Four Nations (Jack Bonza & Mick Moretti)-Don’t let the polldaddy glitches fool you…The Four Nations did BARELY win the online voting competition this week as they were in the lead at the 10 PM Eastern cutoff. That being said, they not only won the competition, but earned their way into the #2 spot as they defeated Concrete Davidson and Big Fudge at Newcaste Pro in Australia on 2/18 in the semifinals and then defeated SMS (InstaGraham & Snapchad) in the final to win the 2017 King of the Castle Tournament to go 2-0 for the week.

#3 Kings of the East (King Shahil & Lazar Armani)-It was really a toss-up to see who would be #2 and who would be #3 this week, but in the end the online voting competition pushed Four Nations ahead of the Kings of the East despite an almost identical weekend. This tag team defeated Power Force (Aaron Jackson & Jagger Stevens) at New Horizons Pro Wrestling in Australia on 2/18 in the semifinals and then defeated Team Overdrive (Estrella Ardiente & Jarrad Slate) in the final to win the Headshrinker Samu Legacy Cup Tournament to go 2-0 for the week. Australia proved to be a heavy-hitter in this week’s tag team rankings as we ended up with Australian tag teams at #2 and #3.
#4 The Guerrillas of Destiny (Tama Tonga & Tanga Loa)-The NEW WrestleCircus Tag Team Champions get their first-ever ranking this week as they defeated The Pretty Boy Killers (Keith Lee & Shane Taylor), The Boys (Brandon & Brent), Extra Talented (Aaron Solo & Ricky Starks), Andy Dalton & Scott McKenzie and Carson & Davey Boy Smith Jr. to become inaugural champions in a battle royal on 2/19. Outlasting 5 other teams was particularly impressive as they are the only team with one official victory in the Tag Team Top 5 this week, but with that being said, again, they DID beat five other teams to win the titles. This week has been all about new blood and G.O.D. is no different.
#5 Raze Cray (Ruby Raze & Ray Lyn)-Hell of a week for this impressive tag team as they knocked off Sage Sin Supreme & Kimmy Shellhammer at Sabotage on 2/18 and then beat Holidead & Heather Monroe the same day to go 2-0 for the week. It should also be noted that they ended the week in fourth in the online voting competition with 37 votes from their fans and supporters in a very stacked field. If these two continue to team consistently, you could absolutely start to see them climb the Tag Team Top 5 ladder with a #1 ranking in sight. Time will tell, as always.
