AEW Executive Vice Presidents The Young Bucks have been named the #1 tag team in the world by Pro Wrestling Illustrated.

PWI announced their Tag Team 50 rankings for 2021 today, and the top spot was taken by Matt Jackson and Nick Jackson.

“Congratulations to Matt & Nick Jackson, The Young Bucks, for ranking #1 in the second annual PWI #TagTeam50! To see who else made the cut, grab the digital edition or preorder the print magazine from,” PWI tweeted.

AEW World Tag Team Champions The Lucha Brothers were ranked #2, while IWGP Tag Team Champions Taichi and Zack Sabre Jr. of The Dangerous Tekkers were ranked #3, SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos ranked #4, and Goddess of Stardom Champions Syuri and Giulia of ALK ranked #5.

The Bucks responded to the #1 ranking on Twitter and wrote, “Duh.”

The inaugural PWI Tag Team 50 was released in 2020 with AAA World Tag Team Champions FTR taking the top spot. The Bucks ranked #11 last year.

    So you’re telling me the team that can book themselves to win every match they’re in is ranked #1? The team that names their finisher after the guy making the list? You don’t say…

    @AEW logic
    PWI isn’t Meltzer. Meltzer spreads his influencer crap somewhere else.
