Ladies & gentlemen, the Greatest Tag Team in PCW history, Tag Sciences Faculty!
The top three on this list are almost interchangeable and there was much debate, but a strong consensus in favour of Priceless" Chad Tatum & Mike Angels, two men who broke the mould and achieved brilliant careers through talent, determination and a sheer will to be the very vest.
Together, Tag Sciences Faculty held the PCW Tag Team Championship on three separate occasions for a cumulative total of 518 days, good for second on the all-time days-as-champion list. Their third and final reign clocked in at an impressive 350 days, the third longest in history.
They had exceptional longevity as a duo with championship reigns that spanned a decade. And would be considered by most to be a pure tag team with undeniable synergy combining athleticism, technical mastery and hard-hitting offense with a unique collective persona that made them both hated and beloved over their careers.
Outside of Tag Sciences Faculty, both men had success in other tag teams. Most impressively, Tatum was a member of Assisted Suicide with Rawskillz. That team held several championships in the CWF and TRCW before entering PCW where they had a jaw-dropping Ladder Match against Perfect Balance at Commencement of Cool. Their 2007 reunion saw them engage in many incredible bouts with the best duos of the day and narrowly miss capturing a PCW Tag Team Championship.
Many people predicted Assisted Suicide would top this list, an exceptional level of respect for a duo who achieved the bulk of their success before entering PCW.
Angels was an early member of the legendary Team Impact in the CWF and entered PCW teaming with Dean Richtor as The Regulators where they had a great feature match at the initial Boiling Point against Kenny Omega & Mentallo and faced the Road Warriors the night before in Brandon, Mb.
Angels had a fourth PCW Tag Team Championship reign with his manager Vinko.
Individually, both men rank among the greatest singles competitors in PCW history with remarkable resumes of excellence. Tatum & Angels are arguably the most decorated singles wrestlers to achieve such lofty tag team success in the company.
Both men were PCW Heavyweight Champion & Canadian Champion.
Mike Angel's first reign on top came by defeating Mentallo at the 5th Anniversary Spectacular in front of a sold out crowd at the LID Nightclub. While Mentallo was beloved, the fans serenaded Angels with a standing ovation for his victory and he quickly became one of the most popular wrestles in PCW history.
His 329 day reign, 6th longest of all time, came to en end at the hands of Kenny Omega. Angels regained the PCW Heavyweight Championship 35 days later before once again losing to Omega who went on to hold the gold for 1085 days.
Angels' feud with Omega was one of the most hotly contested PCW had ever seen and spanned years. In addition to their trading of the PCW Championship, they engaged in a world-famous "Cottage Country Match" that led to Angels' touring Japan in the summer of 2008.
The feud continued over the years as Tag Sciences Faculty faced The Experience (Omega & Chris Stevens) numerous times. TSF's final PCW Tag Team Championship reign began March 15th, 2014 when they defeated The Old School Outlaws (Steve Corino & Adam Knight) to begin their 350 day sting as titlists.
In addition to holding the PCW Championship, Chad Tatum was the 2nd ever PCW Junior Heavyweight Champion, capturing the gold from former partner Rawskillz in his hometown of Brandon, Mb in 2002.
In 2008, Tatum ended AJ Sanchez' 420 reign as PCW Canadian Champion, embarking on his own record-setting 574 day title reign! That made Tatum one of only three Grand Slam Champions (holders of Four main PCW titles) in company history!
He added a second Canadian title reign in 2016, holding the gold for 216 days, never being beaten and retiring as champion in an historic moment. Although retired, Tatum made a surprise appearance one month later to team with then-PCW Heavyweight Champion Jackie "The Jet" Lee to face Omega & Stevens. To cap an exceptional career, Tatum pinned Kenny to win the match for his team.
Bringing these two men together in the first place was their early manager, the brilliant and magnificent Vinko The Ukrainian Sex Machine. Undoubtedly, Vinko contributed in large part to their success, instilling in Angels & Tatum a desire to achieve greatness their way.
And achieve they did. For their longevity, talents and success as a duo and in singles competition, their popularity and loyalty & commitment to PCW and its fans, Mike Angels & Chad Tatum have now added one more well-deserved accolade to their long list of accomplishments.
Tag Sciences Faculty are the Greatest Tag Team in PCW history!
