Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of June 19th, 2017 

#1 The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson)-Don’t let the picture fool you. Despite their success in ROH and New Japan, this ranking is solely based on the independents over the last week. Well, that combined with their prestige as a team and the usual things that we look at when our official voters put together their ballots week after week. That said, Matt and Nick Jackson, the ROH World and IWGP Junior Tag Team Champions had a FANTASTIC weekend on the indies as they defeated The Spirit Squad (Kenny & Mikey) at House of Hardcore in Australia on 6/16, then defeated Tommy Dreamer & Billy Gunn on 6/17, and then defeated The Spirit Squad again on 6/18 to go 3-0 for the week. The Bucks continue to prove that when they work in promotions that are eligible for our rankings, they are almost unparalleled.



#2 The Hooligans (Devin & Mason Cutter @BeardedBullys)-It feels great to see a healthy Mason Cutter teaming with Devin again and picking up wins and even more titles. The 2014 and 2015 Tag Team Top 50 #1’s and current FIP Tag Team Champions added the Rockstar Pro Titles (again) to their new collection as they defeated Night Ryderz (Dustin Rayz & Alex Colon) at Rockstar Pro on 6/14 to win the vacant titles and then beat Matt Tremont and Teddy Stigma at Full Impact Pro on 6/17 to retain the titles to go 2-0 for the week. Had it not been for the incredible week by the Young Bucks, The Hooligans likely would have been almost the consensus #1 this week. That said, the Cutters are in prime position to make another run in this year’s year-end Tag Team Top 50. Find out where they are in the mid-year update next Wednesday at 3 PM Eastern!



#3 Polo Promotions (Jackie Polo & Mark Coffey)



#4 Modern Day Savages (Aleki & Ati)


#5 People’s Champs. The Hounds of Hades (Jackson & Austin Shadows)-We get our first ranking from the Shadows as the Shockwave and AIWF Edge Tag Team Champions helped their own cause by winning the online voting competition and edging out #CCK (due to having more fan votes to break the tie) to slide into the Tag Team Top 5. They got on the poll as they defeated Bad Blood at Shockwave on 6/17 to retain the titles. If they can keep on winning and defending titles, they’ll likely be seen again in the rankings.
