PVW: Max & Sal, Livestock & The Gutch
Just off the top of my head ...
AWA - Violence Unlimited, The Lynches, Rough n Ready, The Bombers
PVW - Max and Sal, Livestock and The Gutch, The Berserkers, The Heat, PAIN
SCWE - Greatness, Frats, Taylor Twins
UWF - The Morningstars, Brett Young and Pablo O'Connor teamed for quite awhile
From an AWA Point of View, you'd have to argue that Rough N Ready or Violence Unlimited are the favorites.
RNR held the titles for the majority of the year until VU knocked 'em off so that might make Cooper and Somers the favorite although being absent the last half the year will probably hurt them.
The Lynches are a dark horse but have to be given strong consideration since they won the Stampede Cup AND the tag titles in the last half of the year and as they like to mention, have yet to lose a match as a tag team in the AWA.
