Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of June 12th, 2017

#1 The Kraken (Chip Day and Murder-1)-This is NOT the first #1 ranking for Chip Day in a tag team but it IS the first #1 ranking for this duo. This tag team has been tearing it up over the last year plus at AWE and this weekend was just further proof of that fact. They entered Bobby And Stan’s Most Excellent Tag Team Tournament 2 and defeated The Ugly Ducklings (Lance Lude & Rob Killjoy) and The Besties In The World (Davey Vega & Mat Fitchett) at Atlanta Wrestling Entertainment on 6/9 in the first round, then defeated Indy Card Mafia (Eric Emanon & Thomas Brewington) on 6/10 in the semifinals, and then defeated The Submission Squad (Evan Gelistico & Gary Jay) in the final the same day to win the tournament with a 3-0 record for the week. There was no doubt that they were the official voters’ consensus #1 as they EASILY swept the ballots. Congrats to The Kraken who just continue to dominate the South!



#2 Le Tabarnak de Team (Mathieu St. Jacques & Thomas Dubois)-We go from the South in Georgia for our #1 to the North in Canada where Le Tabarnak de Team continued to prove while they’re one of the best tag teams in the Great White North. The Combat Revolution Wrestling and International Wrestling Syndicate Tag Team Champions defeated Buxx Belmar & Sexxxy Eddy at CRW on 6/9 to retain the titles; then defeated Halal Beefcake (Idris Abraham & Joe Coleman) at Smash on 6/11 to go 2-0 for the week. LTDT have been quietly dominating Canada for the last several years and they FINALLY get some of the credit they deserve this week.



#3 Abdullah Kobayashi & Ryuji Ito



#4 Speed of Sounds (Tsutomo Oosugi aka Yapper Man #1 & Hercules Senga aka Yapper Man #2)


#5 Brat Pack (Nick Bury & Mitch Waterman)


People’s Champs. The Hoodrich Brothers (Mike Cobb and Shawn Hoodrich)-This Nashville-based Tag Team get their first win in the online voting competition after a HUGE win over the weekend. The SWF Tag Team Champions defeated former 2-time Tag Team Top 50 #1’s The Hooligans (Devin & Mason Cutter) and Super Over Baby Faces (Petey St. Croix & Jeremy Flynt) on 6/9 to retain the titles. That victory got them on the poll and after 40 votes from the fans, they became this week’s People’s Champs after winning the fan vote.
