Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of July 17th, 2017 

#1 People’s Champs. Geordie Bulldogs (Sean & Mark Denny)-Last week we noted that it’s rare for a team to win both the online voting competition and the official #1 for the week, but for the second straight week it has happened here in the Tag Team Top 5. The Geordie Bulldogs (like Henry and Drake last week) swept the ballots of the official voters AND collected 144 votes from the fans to win the People’s Champ award this week. There was no doubt that The Geordie Bulldogs deserved the #1 after the AML and RAGE Tag Team Champions won the Crockett Foundation Cup Tag Team Tournament. This stellar tag team defeated Outlaw Ink at Classic Pro Wrestling on 7/15 in the first round, then defeated The Heatseekers in the quarterfinals, then defeated The Old School Empire in the semifinals, and then defeated Tough Guy Inc (Brutal Bob Evans & Tough Tim Hughes) in the final to go 4-0 and win the tournament.

#2 Hanako Nakmori & Maki Natsumi-While the Geordie Bulldogs swept the official voters’ ballots at #1, Nakmori & Natsumi swept them at #2. Their victory in the Pure-J Dream Tag Team Tournament would have equaled a #1 ranking in almost any other week, but for now they’ll have to settle for their #2 ranking this week. This tag team defeated Hikari Shimizu and Takako Sekiguchi at Pure-J in Japan on 7/14 in the first round, then defeated Command Bolshoi and Tae Honma in the semifinals, and then defeated WANTED ’14 (KAZUKI and Raideen Hagane) in the final the same day to win the tournament with a 3-0 record for the week. If they can build on this ranking, Nakmori & Natsumi could be looking at their first #1 ranking before the end of the year.



#3 Scarlet and Graves (Dezmond Xavier & Zachary Wentz)



#4 The Rejects (John Wayne Murdoch & Reed Bentley)



#5 DAMNATION (Mad Paulie & Tetsuya Endo)
