Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of August 7th, 2017

#1 Shane Sabre & Phil Atlas-The NEW CWE Tag Team Champions get their first ranking together this week and it’s a HUGE one as they knocked off Jacob Creed & Bobby Collins on 7/31 to win the titles. They took that momentum forward for 5 more wins at Canadian Wrestling’s Elite they then defeated Kute Kody & Travis Cole on 8/1 to retain again, then teamed with Jonathan Gresham on 8/2 to defeat Tony Kozina, Kute Kody and Tasty Travis, then defeated Danny Duggan & The Mercenary and Ethan Price & Kenji Brea in a three-way on 8/4, then defeated K-Dos & Kaz Karter and Kenji Brea & Tony Kozina in a three-way on 8/5, and then defeated Tony Kozina & Silas Young on 8/6 to go 6-0 for the week. It was an impressive week and it would have been nearly impossible to keep a team with SIX wins and zero losses out of the #1 spot this week, so to Shane Sabre & Phil Atlas, we tip our caps. They also fared well in the online voting competition as they came in second place.



#2 Scarlet & Graves (Zachary Wentz & Dezmond Xavier)-The AAW Tag Team Champions just continue to make a tremendous waves on the independent scene (and elsewhere) as they get another great ranking this week. This ranking comes after they beat Stephen Wolf and Trey Miguel on 8/5 to retain the titles. While there were other teams with more victories over the weekend, it was quality over quantity this week as the prestige of the AAW Tag Team Titles really boosted their ranking. If they can continue to retain those titles, there’s little doubt that you’ll be seeing them very high in the year-end Tag Team Top 50 for the second straight year.



#3 Andrew Cobalt & Nick Abrams



#4 Colt Cabana, Joey Ryan, & Candice LeRae



#5 Le Tabarnak de Team (Mathieu St-Jacques & Thomas Dubois)



People’s Champs. Brian Blade & Eric Fantabulous-This duo just slipped in to win the online voting competition this week as they edged out Shane Sabre & Phil Atlas and kept them from sweeping ALL of the voting. Blade & Fantabulous JUST missed out on their first official Top 5 ranking, but did have a very good week as the MWA Pro Wrestling Tag Team Champions defeated Chief Attakullakulla & Shane Sanders on 8/3 to retain the titles and then defeated The Beast & Chief Attakullakulla on 8/4 to retain again to go 2-0 for the week.
