Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of January 13th, 2014
1. OI4K (Dave & Jake Crist)-They return from Japan with a #1 ranking! 2 big wins this week get them to the #1 spot in just the 3 rd week of the Tag Team Top 5. On 1/10 at Rockstar Pro, they defeated Wrestling’s Horror Story (Fallen & Draven) and Alex Colon & Nate Wings in a 3 Way Tag Team Match. They then went to CZW where they defeated Juicy Product (and damn near killed JT Dunn). With the way 2014 has started,if they say Ohio is For Killers, you should believe it.
2. Michael Hayes & Mohamad Ali Vaez-The OVW Southern Tag Team drop one spot from last week,but the way it looks,they’re going to be sticking around the Top 5 for a long time to come. This week they retained the OVW Southern Tag Team Titles vs. Bud Dwight & Dylan Bostic on 1/8 at the OVW TV Tapings. Time will tell if they can climb back into the #1 spot once again.
3. Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson)-The PWG,IWGP Junior,and HOG Tag Team Champions brought the Super Kick party to EVOLVE in Florida over the weekend where they defeated The Bravado Brothers & Johnny Gargano (teaming with Rich Swann) in a 6 Man Tag on 1/10 and then followed that up with a big victory over Chuck Taylor & Rich Swann on 1/11. We’re 3 weeks in and they have yet to be ranked #1 yet. Unlikely that this will continue for very long.
4. The Hooligans (Devin & Mason Cutter)-The SNPW,SLA,and Zero-1 USA Tag Team Champions dominated the weekend with two big wins vs. Da House Party at SNPW and Two Star Heroes at SLA. This was the first weekend in action in 2014 for the Cutter Brothers. Time will tell if they can reach the elusive #1 spot in the very near future.
5. The Beaver Boys (Alex Reynolds & John Silver)-On 1/11 they cashed in their #1 contendership with a CZW World Tag Team Title victory vs.BLK Out. This tag team has been tearing it up all over the East Coast. Had they not lost to The Best Around last week at OPW, they’d likely be in heavy contention for the #1 spot this week.
1 st Honorable Mention. Rage and the Machine (Michael McAllister & The Mecha Mercenary)-The NEW CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champions after defeating Kamakazi Kid & Lee Valiant on 1/11
