Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of January 20th, 2014
for the Week of January 20th, 2014
1. Country Jacked (Corey Hollis & Adam Page)-What a weekend for Country Jacked! Not only were both members of this tag team ranked in the Indy Power Rankings top 10, as a unit they grab the #1 spot in the Tag Team Top 5. With wins vs. Cedric Alexander & Caleb Konley on 1/17 and a 4 Way Tag Team victory over Chase Brown & Kyle Matthews, Drew Myers & Shaun Tempers, and Lance Lude & Zane Riley. They’ve made it clear both inside and outside the ring that PWX is theirs for the taking.
2. Iron Godz (Rob Conway & Jax Dane)-The NWA World Tag Team Champions return to the Indy Power Rankings after a brief hiatus. This week they put their titles on the line at NWA BOW and retained vs. former WWE/ROH World Tag Team Champions Shelton Benjamin & Charlie Haas. With the title defenses racking up the question looms, when will they grab their first #1 ranking?
3. Da Soul Touchaz (Acid Jaz & Willie Richardson)-At RPW Vulgar Display of Power, this Midwest Tag Team did double duty as they retained the RPW Tag Team Titles vs. Lock Up (Aaron Epic & Suge D), only to be thrust into another title match where they retained once again vs. The Painkillers. They’ve been on the rise and hit the top 5 for the first time in its 4 week history.
4. Oliver John & Timothy Thatcher-On 1/18 this West Coast tag team defeated Joey Ryan & Rocky Romero to win the WCA Golden State Tag Team Titles in the finals of the tournament. Unfortunately, their scheduled opponents the Forever Hooligans were a man down, thus the Joey Ryan replacement. Surely another John/Thatcher vs. Forever Hooligans battle is on the horizon in 2014.
5. Team IOU (Kerry Awful & Nick Iggy)-The last several weeks this insane tag team has come within a vote or two of hitting the top 5. This week they finally cash it in on the strength of their HUGE victory over The Hooligans at CCW on 1/18. While they did lose in a Tag Team 3 Way on 1/17 at RPW (without getting pinned), they also defeated the Unlucky Charms at a benefit show in Nashville, TN on 1/19.
1st Honorable Mention. Baltic Siege (The Estonian Thunderfrog & Latvian Proud Oak)-Big weekend with wins at WIF! and WIR
