Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of March 17th, 2014
1. Team IOU (Kerry Awful & Nick Iggy)-A boy and his dog pull do it on back to back weeks! Their win vs. Mayhem was big, but they arguably didn’t have the biggest weekend of any of the candidates. The voters went with the incumbent this week as no one did enough to knock them from their perch this week. No one can argue with how successful they have been, not having lost a match since February 22nd, 2014. The NWA Southern Tag Team Champions don’t look like they’re slowing down any time soon. #3 in the online poll.
2. The Hooligans (Devin & Mason Cutter)-These bearded bullies took their fat flippy style and defended their SNPW Tag Team Titles once again on 3/15 and once again came out on top. This time they defeated Jake Dirden and Brandon Espinosa. They have picked up a ton of momentum recently and with shows in 3 different states coming up this weekend, a clean sweep could easily land them in the #1 spot next week. #2 in the online poll.
3. Juicy Product (JT Dunn & David Starr)-GREAT weekend for this Northeastern tag team in Florida of all places. A 2-0 weekend with wins vs. The Submission Squad and Aaron Solo & Jason Cade may have been the most impressive weekend of any of the candidates this week, but the lack of tag team gold and loss last week at CZW may have weighed on voter’s minds. They are absolutely rising stars, whether it’s in singles or tag team competition. #5 in the online poll.
4. The Kartel (Sha Samuels & Terry Frazier)-Wanna talk about coming out of nowhere? Talk about The Kartel. They reunited over the weekend and knocked off the Inner City Machine Guns for the RPW British Tag Team Titles on 3/16. Not only that, they got a TON of support this week in the online poll as they dominated from start to finish (though the Hooligans closed in several times) to become this week’s People’s Champions as they were #1 in the online poll.
5. Los Ben Dejos (Jay Rios & Jay Cruz)-The PWX Tag Team Champions could have had the #1 in the bag, but the loss vs. Adam Page in a Triple Threat match hurt this week. That being said, they still picked up two big tag team title defenses vs. Anthony Henry & Billy Brash and Andrew Everett & Trevor Lee. They’re really starting to make a name for themselves as they look to climb back to the #1 spot once again.
Honorable Mention. BULLET CLUB (Karl Anderson & Doc Gallows)-IWGP Tag Team Champions went 3-0 with 3 victories in 10 man tag team matches. #4 in the online poll.
