Indy Power Rankings for the Week of June 9th, 2014

Postby PhenomenalTLD » Wed Jun 11, 2014 7:33 am

Indy Power Rankings for the Week of June 9th, 2014 http://wp.me/p4kQ6t-zb

Image

1. Ricochet (@KingRicochet)-After he won the New Japan Best of the Super Juniors Tournament on 6/8, was there really any other option at #1? A lot of great options for the Top 10, sure, but higher than Ricochet in the Top 10? Not likely. In fact, the fans even agreed with the official voters, which is a rarity. His week started off low when the DGUSA Open the Freedom Gate Champion lost to Jushin Thunder Liger on 6/3, but he bounced back with wins vs. Mascara Dorada on 6/4, Matt Jackson on 6/5, and BUSHI on 6/6 before finally beating Tysuke Taguchi in the Semi Finals and KUSHIDA in the Finals to win the New Japan Best of the Super Juniors Tournament. He was 7-2 in the tournament, overall. He received 237 online votes to become People’s Champ this week as well.

2. AJ Styles (@AJStylesOrg)-The IWGP Heavyweight Champion misses out on the #1 ranking again, but still impressed voters as he defeated Chris Hero on 6/6 and Kevin Steen on 6/7 at House of Hardcore IV & V. He beat two of the biggest names in indy wrestling in one weekend, which was easily enough to get him back into the Top 10 at #2. Great week for a Phenomenal athlete who has been tearing it up since his return to the indies.

3. Adam Cole (@AdamColePro)-The ROH World Champion defeated ACH on 6/6 and Tommaso Ciampa on 6/7 to retain the title. He is 13-4 in singles competition in 2014 and 15-8 overall. While he has been ranked #1 one time this year, you have to assume he’s going to have some more chances at that #1 ranking in the very near future with his HUGE match vs. Michael Elgin coming up at ROH Best in the World in Nashville.

4. Michael Elgin (@ROHMichaelElgin)-The AIW Absolute Champion and ½ of the AAW Tag Champs defeated Jimmy Jacobs at ROH on 6/6, went to a draw with Michael Bennett on 6/7, and then defeated ACH at Smash Wrestling on 6/8 to jump right back into the mix of things. He was the #1 in the IPR 100 in 2014 and he’s currently sitting at #2 this year. He’s currently chasing Ricochet for that #1 spot. If he can cash in and FINALLY win the ROH World Title, it’s going to be a battle right up until the end of 2014.

5. Nick Jackson (@NickJacksonYB)-Not exactly a name you’d expect to see in the SINGLES Top 10, especially as high as he is, but it was a fantastic week for ½ of the Young Bucks. ½ of the PWG World Tag Team Champions and IWGP Junior Tag Team Champions defeated Tiger Mask on 6/3, El Desperado on 6/4, Kenny Omega on 6/5, and Rocky Romero on 6/6 to go 4-3 in the NJPW Best of the Super Juniors and then teamed with Matt Jackson, Bad Luck Fale, & Yujiro Takahashi to defeat CHAOS to go 5-0 this week. That is a flawless week for a hell of a talent who is known more for his tag team excellence.

6. Matt Cage (@proudcaucasian)- The AAW Heritage Champ teamed with Bucky Collins to beat Christian Rose & Nick Brubaker by DQ on 6/6, Johnny Gargano on 6/7 at DREAMWAVE, and then CJ Esparza on 6/8 to go 3-0 on the weekend. “Money” Matt Cage is another guy who’s been hovering around the top of this year’s IPR 100 and this ranking can only help his cause. After 3 straight wins, he’s got some momentum again. Let’s see if he can get back into the #1 spot again before the end of summer. #9 in the online poll.

7. Reed Bentley (@TheReedBentley)-The EPW Elite Champion moved up a spot as he tagged with Tripp Cassidy to defeat last week’s #4 Hy Zaya and BJ Whitmer at IWA Mid-South on 6/5. While his weekend wasn’t as fantastic as some of the members of the Top 10 this week, it was his continued excellence that carried over from last week that has once again given him an appearance in the Indy Power Rankings. 2014 has been an exceptional year for him so far. #6 in the online poll.

8. Melvin Maximus (@melvin_maximus)-The OVW TV Champion RETURNS to the Top 10 as he defeated former Jake Glacier to retain the title at the 6/4 OVW TV Tapings, defeated Roberto De Luna at OVW on 6/6, and then teamed with Jamin Olivencia to defeat Adam Revolver and Marcus Anthony on 6/7. He has won 6 straight matches (one of which was the title win) since regaining the title. He’s currently sitting at #3 in the IPR 100, which is quite amazing for someone who competes primarily in one promotion. It’s his almost perfect win-loss record in 2014 that has gotten him this far.

9. David Starr (@TheProductDS)-The XWA Heavyweight Champ and ½ of the FIP and CZW World Tag Team Champions defeated Ryan Reigns at VOW on 6/7. Much like Reed Bentley before him, it wasn’t one of the best weeks as a stand-alone, but this is more carry over from what he’s been able to accomplish the last few weeks as he has been almost unbeatable. If the last couple of months have been any indication, he’s going to continue to make people “Look at it” for the rest of 2014.

10. Lance Lude (@LanceLude)-The PWX iTV Champion defeated Trevor Lee on 6/7 to win the PWI Ultra J title to become a double champion and to finally break into the Top 10 after several flirtations with getting ranked. He’s had an impressive 2014 so far as well and by all accounts, he is a true rising star in the Carolinas. If he can keep this success going, perhaps he’ll join Caleb Konley as a Carolina-based star to hit #1 in the Top 10. #10 in the online poll.

Honorable Mention. Rob Conway (@TheRobConway)- NEW NWA World Heavyweight Champion for a 2nd time after defeating last week’s #1 Satoshi Kojima for the title at the Cauliflower Alley show on 6/2.

Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of June 9th, 2014

Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of June 9th, 2014 http://wp.me/p4kQ6t-zk

Image


1. Reno Scum (Adam Thornstowe & Luster the Legend)-Their first ranking after several times on the poll after a HUGE victory vs. Bad Influence at the Cauliflower Alley show on 6/2, which added to some of their recent impressive wins such as the one vs. The Young Bucks. Thornstowe himself is a former #1 in the Indy Power Rankings and check our facts, but along with Michael Elgin, he is one of the two people to have been ranked #1 in the Indy Power Rankings Top 10 and the Tag Team Top 5. Look out for this team to continue popping up more and more as the year goes along.

2. London Riots (James Davis & Rob Lynch)-The IPW: UK British Tag Team Champions teamed with Jimmy Havoc, Isaac Zercher and Damon Moser to defeat Eddie Dennis, D&D Security, Chuck Mambo, & Mark Hendry on 6/8. They have won 8 straight matches as a team, but it was perhaps their lack of a straight up tag team match this week that cost them the #1 ranking. Strong arguments were made for them to get the top spot (including their win streak) but ultimately, they ended up at #2.

3. BULLET CLUB (Karl Anderson & Doc Gallows)-The former #1 in the Tag Team Top 5 and the IWGP Tag Team Champions looked to be on the path to another #1 ranking after they started the week off with 4 straight victories. They teamed with Tama Tonga, Bad Luck Fale, & Yujiro Takahashi on 6/3 to defeat Captain New Japan, Hiroshi Tanahashi, Manabu Nakanishi, Tetsuya Naito, & Tomoaki Honma. They then defeated Hiroshi Tanahashi & Tomoaki Honma in a straight up tag team match on 6/4 and then again on 6/5 and one more time on 6/6. They finally lost a 6 man tag to Tanahashi, Naito, and Honma on 6/8 to end their 9 match winning streak and that loss cost them the #1 ranking this week, but considering they are mainstays, there’s no doubt they’ll be back.

4. Team IOU (Kerry Awful & Nick Iggy)-The former NWA Southern Tag Team Champions bounced back this week in a big way after some struggles the last few weeks. They defeated Bama Boys (Josh Crowe & John Wayne Murdoch) and The Jollyville Fuck-Its at CCW in a Gauntlet Match on 6/7. This isn’t their first big win in a Gauntlet Match recently as apparently that’s becoming one of their specialties. A boy and his dog have been one of the most dominant tag teams throughout 2014 and it’s only a matter of time before they get some gold once again. #2 in the online poll with 101 votes.

5. reDRagon (Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish)-It’s been a slow climb for the ROH World Tag Team Champions as they once again barely sneak into the Top 5. This time they defeated the top ROH tag team of all time as they defeated The Briscoes on 6/7 to retain the titles. If they can just turn this into some much needed momentum and a string of wins, there’s no doubt that a #1 ranking (their first as a team) is inevitable.

People’s Champs. The Soul Shooters (Dru Skillz & Appollo Starr)- Defeated The Untamed at Strong Style Wrestling on 6/7 and won the online voting competition with 119 votes at #1 in the poll.

Indy Power Rankings for the Week of June 23rd, 2014

Postby PhenomenalTLD » Thu Jun 26, 2014 5:22 am

Indy Power Rankings for the Week of June 23rd, 2014 http://wp.me/p4kQ6t-Dr

Image

1. JT Dunn (@TheJuiceee)-It was a career defining weekend for ½ of the CZW and FIP World Tag Team Champions. While he’s held multiple titles and done many great things already in his career, his two victories over the weekend have to rank right up there at the top of his list of accomplishments. First, he defeated Bobby Fish at XWA on 6/21 and then he defeated Chris Hero at Beyond Wrestling on 6/22 in a Knock Out Match. This was a match that Dunn had been begging for and he came out victorious. There was a bit of debate among the voters this week as to who was the rightful #1, but in the end “The Juice” took the top spot. #8 in the online poll.

2. David Starr (@TheProductDS)-His name has popped up time and time again in the Indy Power Rankings, whether it was the Tag Team Top 5 or the Indy Power Rankings Top 10, he’s been forcing EVERYONE to “look at it.” ½ of the CZW and FIP World Tag Team Champions did not defend those titles over the weekend, but rather, he defended his XWA Heavyweight Title as he first defeated Chris Dickinson, Matt Taven, and Jason Blade on 6/21 and then defeated Brian Fury on 6/22.

3. Michael Elgin (@ROHMichaelElgin)-The new ROH World Champion will likely be a controversial topic as to where he is ranked this week. There were official voters who felt that his World Title win was enough to give him the #1 spot for the company that is arguably the biggest independent company going today. There was the other side that felt that his loss to Josh Alexander on 6/20 at AAW should be taken into account. In the end, he didn’t get another #1, but we’re quite sure he’ll sleep well at night with his belt (3 of them actually) and gorgeous wife, MsChif. Congrats to last year’s IPR 100 #1 on his huge win!

4. Tyler Bate (@Tyler_Bate)-What an incredible weekend! He absolutely dominated Great Bear Promotions as he won their Junior Heavyweight Cup 2014 on 6/21 by defeating Axel Dieter Jr., and CJ Banks & Damian Dunne to win the tournament. He didn’t stop there. He then beat former multiple time People’s Champ Josh Bodom the next day and then finished off the weekend by winning a 12 Man Elimination Match that same day. He was 4-0 on the weekend. #2 in the online poll with 92 votes.

5. John Klinger (@TheGermanPsycho)-“Bad Bones” was flat out BAD on the weekend, but we mean that in the best way possible. The IPW: UK World Champion/GWF Middleweight Champion defended his IPW:UK title vs. Eric Schwarz and retained on 6/21 at GHW. The next day he won a 10 Man Battle Royal and then defeated CorVus the very same day. We’ve been seeing a lot of Klinger lately and we expect that to continue throughout the rest of 2014.

6. Matt Cross (@MDoggMattCross)-The Smash Wrestling Champion returns to the Top 10 once again! He’s a busy guy, but when he gets the time to wrestle, he EXCELS. Over the weekend he knocked off Chris Hero at C*4 on 6/21, which in itself was big enough, but then he defeated Josh Alexander (who had just beaten Michael Elgin on 6/20) on 6/22 and cemented his place in the Top 10 once again. “M Dogg” has been on fire in 2014 after barely getting mentioned in the Top 10 in 2013. Hell of an athlete and one hell of a wrestler as 2014 has shown us.

7. Joey Ryan (@JoeyRyanOnline)-Sleaze made its return to the Top 10 for the 2nd straight week in the form of the CWF Hollywood TV Champion as he stayed steady, picking up a tag team win with Candice LeRae vs. The Perfect Kings on 6/20 at FSP and then defeated Maxwell Chicago on 6/22 at FIP. While he did slip a bit from last week due to perceived lack of strong competition, he’s still hanging around and with his schedule, the possibility of moving up once again is a very real one.

8. Josef Von Schmidt (@JosefVonSchmidt)-Much like Joey Ryan before him, JVS slipped a bit this week due to the same reasoning, BUT with that being said, he’s still winning as he defeated Braydon Shocker at LCW via submission, and essentially that is the highest determining factor as to how someone gets into the Top 10. On top of that, he still holds (at least) 4 titles. With 4 straight wins and a collection of gold, it’s only a matter of time before JVS starts moving up again. #3 in the online poll with 52 votes.

9. Matt Cage (@proudcaucasian)-Very few wrestlers have been as consistently ranked in 2014 as “Money” Matt Cage, but that’s just something he’s getting used to. On 6/20 he retained his AAW Heritage Title vs. Heidi Lovelace in a much heralded contest and then on 6/21 he defeated Mallaki Matthews at SCW. If he can maintain the current pace and schedule he’s on right now, he’ll be back into contention for the #1 spot in the very near future.

10. Chase Owens (@nwachaseowens)-Chase Owens is another competitor that has been VERY consistent throughout the year. When he gets thrown in tag team matches, his success rate drops, but in singles, he dominates. This time he gets in on the strength of his NWA Junior Heavyweight Title defense vs. Adam Page, Cedric Alexander, and Trevor Lee at NWA Smoky Mountain on 6/21. His strength of competition in that match could rival anyone’s on the weekend and while some of the others in the Top 10 had 2, 3, and even 4 wins, it was Chase’s BIG win that got him his ranking this week. #4 in the online poll with 46 votes.


People’s Champion. “The Future” Eddy Young- The SWE Heavyweight Champion had come as close as anyone to winning the online voting competition in recent weeks, but this week, he came from behind and crushed the competition with a lopsided 313 votes on the strength of his title defense vs. Jimmy Fletcher.

Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of June 23rd, 2014

Postby PhenomenalTLD » Fri Jun 27, 2014 8:14 am

Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of June 23rd, 2014 http://wp.me/p4kQ6t-DD

Image

1. The Throwbacks (Dasher Hatfield & Mark Angelosetti)-The #1 may come as a surprise this week to a lot of people, but it certainly wasn’t out of the realm of possibility. Over the weekend at CHIKARA in Chi-Town, they defeated the Submission Squad (Evan Gelistico & Gary Jay) on 6/21 and then followed that up with a victory over ACDC, Die Bruderschaft des Kreuzes, and The Odditorium in a 4 Way Elimination Match on 6/22. While those 2 victories were strong, it was their 8 straight wins as a team that helped to push them to #1 for the 2nd time this year.

2. reDRagon (Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish)-The team that was perhaps the favorite to be ranked #1 this week after their ROH World Tag Team title defense vs. Bad Influence on 6/22 fell just a bit short once again. This week was a week with a lot of parity among the official voters and proof of that was that one of the best tag teams in the world once again failed to reach the top spot. That being said, it’s hard to argue that any ONE victory was any more impressive than their win at Best in the World. As the year rolls along, it will be interesting to see if they can finally breakthrough and get that #1 ranking.

3. The Time Splitters (Alex Shelley & KUSHIDA)-Hard to believe this was their first ranking as a team, but over the weekend they did what had to be done to finally earn a spot in the Tag Team Top 5. Granted, it wasn’t the #1 spot (though they did get some votes for that spot) it was a good start after they knocked off the IWGP Junior Tag Team Champions, The Young Bucks to win the gold. As talented as this team is, there’s no doubt that if they can continue to win big matches, you’ll be seeing them more frequently in the top 5 from here on out.

4. Soul Shooters (Appollo Starr & Dru Skillz)-“The People’s Champs” for the last 2 weeks finally lost a poll, BUT they remain ranked in the top 5. They are the NEW New Era Wrestling Tag Team Champions after defeating TKO for the titles over the weekend. With that victory they improved their 3 week record to 3-0. They just keep toiling away, racking up wins, and now collecting titles. Has anyone been as consistent the last few weeks as them? #3 in the online poll.

5. The Hystars (Atlas Hytower & Lance Star)-While a lot of people may not yet be familiar with this tag team yet (as evidenced by a poor showing in the online poll) look at their weekend and you’ll see why they deserve to be included in these weekly rankings this week. They worked their way through the PWASD Tag Team Title Tournament on 6/20, defeating Breyer Wellington & N8 Mattson, The Punch Drunk Saints, and then finally beating The Necro Butcher & Jack Thriller in the finals to win the titles. It’s their first ranking as a team and if they can continue to defend those titles on a regular basis, it likely won’t be their last.

People’s Champs. Project Ego (Kris Travis & Martin Kirby)-The online voting competition is definitely its own unique entity and this week, it was a battle between Team IOU and Project Ego and in the end, it was Project Ego that emerged victorious with 430 votes! Heck of a week for them as they have now won 4 straight matches and look poised to make a run at the Tag Team Top 5.

Indy Power Rankings for the Week of June 30th, 2014

Postby PhenomenalTLD » Wed Jul 02, 2014 7:39 am

Indy Power Rankings for the Week of June 30th, 2014 http://wp.me/p4kQ6t-Fp

Image


1. Michael Elgin (@ROHMichaelElgin)-This was a week of chaos for the voters, but when it was all said and done, the “Unbreakable” Triple Champion consistently had the most votes among the official voters to secure yet another #1 ranking this year. While he didn’t get #1 last week after winning the ROH World Title, he bullied his way to the top this week by teaming with BJ Whitmer to defeat The Hooligans at IWA Mid-South on 6/28 and then he surprised a lot of people by defeating Tim Donst to retain the AIW Absolute Title on 6/29. Look out because he’s inching ever closer to the #1 spot in the 2014 IPR 100…a spot he owned last year. #9 in the online poll.

2. Rhett Giddins (@bmop_rhett)-5 wins. 1 night. What more can you ask from someone? Granted he didn’t get a lot of support in the fan poll, but the official voters saw the SCW Florida Heavyweight Champion’s success rate on 6/25 and cast a lot of votes his way. His record at BELIEVE 74 was 5-0-1, even finding a way to win the Battle Royal in the same day. Very few people have ever had this much success in just one day. Congrats to him on his highest ranking to date.

3. Matt Tremont (@TremontCZW)-While he did lose to Viper at IWA East-Coast on 6/24, it was the fortitude he showed in battling through an injury to win IWA’s 2014 King of the Death Matches that really made an impression on the official voters. He appeared to injure himself in the first round vs. Jesse Amato in a blood bath, but then battled through to the semi-finals where he defeated John Wayne Murdoch and Ron Mathis in an Elimination 3 Way, before finding a way to survive the onslaught of Josh Crane in the Finals. Bloodied and battered, Tremont took the tournament and the #3 spot this week. #10 in the online poll.

4. JT Dunn (@TheJuiceee)-JT Dunn and David Starr were a dilemma for the official voters this week. They were #1 and #2 last week, so how could they drop after winning yet another title at NYWC when they won their tag team titles? It was difficult to determine, but most official voters dropped them just a little bit in their ballot due to lack of singles activity. Further proof that this can never be an exact science, but hey, both members did remain in the Top 10 this week, regardless. Obviously they’re still OVER.

5. BJ Whitmer (@bj_whitmer)-The IWA East-Coast Heavyweight Champion made a solid defense on 6/24 as he defeated Rockstar Pro Champion Aaron Williams to retain the title. He didn’t stop there. He then went to IWA Mid-South on 6/28 where he teamed with Michael Elgin to defeat The Hooligans in a hard-fought battle. On 6/29 he wrapped up the weekend with a bang by tagging with Jimmy Jacobs to win the AIW Tag Team Titles from long-reigning champions, The Jollyville Fuck-Its. Fantastic week for “Mr. IWA”.

6. Ricochet (@KingRicochet)-“The King” returns to The Top 10 with yet another sweep of Dragon Gate in Japan. The DGUSA Open the Freedom Gate Champion and 2014 NJPW Best of the Super Juniors picked up 3 solid tag team wins (in various different match types) to go 3-0 on the weekend. While he didn’t have any singles matches over the weekend, the official voters felt his overall prestige and quality of opponents was enough to carry him to a Top 10 ranking this week. Some voters had him even higher than the spot he ended up. Ricochet has inarguably been a fixture in the Top 10 throughout 2014. With Michael Elgin coming on strong lately, can he hang onto the top spot in this year’s IPR 100?

7. David Starr (@TheProductDS)-It’s kind of baffling that JT Dunn is 3 spots higher than his tag team partner who has won 14 straight matches, holds 4 titles, and did the exact same thing as Dunn over the weekend, but sometimes that’s just how the votes shake out. The XWA Heavyweight, FIP Tag Team, CZW Tag Team, and new NYWC Tag Team Champion continues to hang around The Top 10 and make people “look at it” as whether it’s in tag team action or in singles, he has been absolutely unstoppable as of late.

8. Kongo Kong (@RealKongoKong)-“The Baddest Man Alive.” “The Most Believable Big Man in Pro Wrestling.” The official voters were loaded with quotes this week after the big man nailed a suicide dive, a moonsault, and a big splash from the top rope to defeat Hy-Zaya for the IWA Mid-South World Title in the finals of their title tournament on 6/29. He obviously impressed the voters on the fan poll as well as he finished in 2nd with 63 votes.

9. Randi West (@RanWestWrestlin)-While it’s her first weekend being ranked, it’s kind of a weekend of “what could have been” for the 2014 Queen of the Death Matches. While it was an amazing accomplishment to win IWA Mid-South’s 2014 QOTDM (knocking off Mistress Burgandi, Thunderkitty, and Ludark Shaitan in the process) it was her loss the next day in a 6 Woman Tag Team Match that ultimately may have cost her the #1 spot this week. Losses hurt, but that aside, Randi West proved her worth with a gruelling, gritty performance to take home the crown.

10. Crazy Mary Dobson (@CrazyMaryDobson)-Amazingly, this is the first time being ranked for this international superstar on the rise. It was an impressive week for “Crazy Mary” as she teamed with Madman Pondo to defeat Heidi Lovelace & Ron Mathis at IWA East Coast on 6/24 and then defeated Samantha Heights at D1W on 6/25. She finally beat Amber O’Neal by DQ at SHINE 20 on 6/27 to end the week with yet another win. 3-0 gets her in this week.

People’s Champion. Noam Dar-128 votes, 3 wins to capture the PROGRESS Wrestling World Cup, and this week’s People’s Champ award. He basically went wire to wire in the poll as he led from almost start to finish. The UK came strong again this week.

Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of June 30th, 2014

Postby PhenomenalTLD » Thu Jul 03, 2014 6:41 am

Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of June 30th, 2014 http://wp.me/p4kQ6t-FC

Image

1. Juicy Product (JT Dunn & David Starr)-The record has been broken! Team IOU’s record of 5 #1 rankings has been broken at the hands of the FIP, CZW, and now NEW NYWC Tag Team Champions, the Juicy Product. They went into their match on 6/28 with 8 straight wins, looking to add some more gold as they took on Rack and Sack…and they left with a 3rd set of tag team titles and a 9th straight win. They have now been ranked #1 in the Tag Team Top 5 for a record 6 times. While they’re not quite at #1 in the Tag Team Top 50, as of press time they’re #3 and with 6 months to go, the sky’s the limit for this young tag team. Can they knock off the Young Bucks at Beyond Wrestling and add to their list of accomplishments? #3 in the online poll.

2. The Throwbacks (Dasher Hatfield & Mark Angelosetti)-Last week’s #1 tag team were a victim of circumstance this week because of the dominance that Juicy Product have shown lately. That being said, there’s definitely an argument for The Throwbacks to repeat at #1 this week as with their win at WIF! on 6/28 vs. The Bloc Party. At the end of the day, it was Juicy Product’s collection of gold that helped push them to a record #1, but The Throwbacks were EASILY the #2 this week as they only got #1 and #2 votes from the official voters. With two #1 rankings already to their credit this year, it will be interesting to see how the rest of 2014 plays out for them. #4 in the online poll.

3. The Bravado Brothers (Lancelot & Harlem Bravado)-The DGUSA Open the United Gate and WrestleForce Tag Team Champions had as good of a single weekend, or better, than anyone on the list. On 6/28 they defeated a very good tag team in The Worst Case Scenario at PWX and then followed that up with a successful defense of the WrestleForce Tag Team Titles on 6/29 vs. Jesse Windham & Zane Riley. Despite an injury here or there, this North Carolina tag team has been fantastic throughout 2014. With them being double champions, a #1 ranking can’t be too far off.

4. The Forgotten (BJ Whitmer & Jimmy Jacobs)-Call them “The Decade” or call them “The Forgotten”, but regardless, the former 2 time ROH World Tag Team Champions stepped into AIW on 6/29 and left with the AIW Tag Team Titles after defeating the long-reigning former Champions, The Jollyville Fuck It’s. Whether they’re rivals or partners, these two veterans bring out the best in one another and now they have gold once again to prove it. The Decade were ranked #1 as a unit (the team of Roderick Strong, BJ Whitmer, & Jimmy Jacobs) but now that Jacobs and Whitmer have these prestigious titles, they have a shot at getting their first #1 ranking as a 2 man team.

5. The Viking War Party (Alex Rudolph & Jake Parnell-The SNPW Tag Team Champions have been pretty damn good in the Midwest this year. While many times they team with a 3rd Viking in the form of Frank Wyatt (as was the case when they defeated Alex Ohlson, Ox Baker Jr. and Cameron Starr at Freelance Wrestling on 6/27), it’s this 2 man team that has been the most successful. They went 2-0 over the weekend with the above noted win and a successful title defense vs. former “People’s Champs” Roscoe Eat Lisa (Mikey McFinnigan & Zakk Sawyers) on 6/28. Keep looking for big things out of them as 2014 continues to roll along.

People’s Champs. The Soul Shooters (Appollo Starr & Dru Skillz)-The NEW Tag Team Champions were behind in the online voting competition almost the entire day but they roared back to take the lead just before voting closed and finished with 64 votes and their 3rd People’s Champs award. This Midwest tag team has done an excellent job of getting their names out their lately.

Indy Power Rankings for the Week of July 7th, 2014

Postby PhenomenalTLD » Thu Jul 10, 2014 6:27 am

Indy Power Rankings for the Week of July 7th, 2014
http://wp.me/p4kQ6t-GF

Image

1. KUSHIDA (@KUSHIDA_Canada)-It was another week of chaos for the official voters BUT, there was one constant. Only one official voter did not have KUSHIDA at #1 on his ballot, but that voter had him at #2, so consistency was key this week for the NEW IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion as he not only got his first singles ranking…but his first #1 ranking! After defeating Kota Ibushi for the title, ½ of the IWGP Junior Tag Team Champions was now a double champion, but one further victory on 7/6 sealed the deal as he went 2-0 on the weekend and had arguably the biggest win of the entire weekend. Congrats to the new champ! Tied for #8 in the online poll.

2. Rhett Giddins (@bmop_rhett)-Make it back-to-back #2 rankings for the SCW Florida Heavyweight Champion! In fact, among the official voters, he was the only other talent outside of KUSHIDA to garner a #1 vote. His win over Aaron Epic was impressive, but it was his 6 wins over the last 2 weeks at BELIEVE that got him to where he is now. He’s been absolutely on fire the last 2 weeks and if he can keep this momentum, his first #1 ranking can’t be far off. Wins matter and that’s what Rhett Giddins has been doing over and over again.

3. Kongo Kong (@RealKongoKong)-The resident monster of the Indy Power Rankings has made himself at home the last 2 weeks. After winning the IWA Mid-South World Title Tournament last week and getting ranked, he defeated Brian Dewey at HWA on 7/5. Clearly, the official voters aren’t the only ones impressed with the big man as the fan vote once again showed heavy support for this beast of a man. #4 in the online poll with 96 votes.

4. VACATED

5. Marcus Anthony (@sgamarcus)-This powerhouse returned to the Top 10 this week after an impressive victory over Jamin Olivencia that earned him the OVW Heavyweight Title once again. It’s actually been quite a while since he’s been ranked in the Top 10, but his 2 victories at OVW last week were enough to push him over the top once again. With this victory and the loss by Melvin Maximus, many voters and OVW fans are hoping to see him lock horns once again with Maximus. Time will tell if that battle of the bulls will go down in the future.

6. “American Viking” Alex Rudolph (@VikingRudolph)-Much like Jock Samson, the big man was snubbed from the Top 10 last week, but this week was a different story. With a weekend record of 2-1 in 6 Man Tag Action combined with his 3-0 record last week, several of the voters felt he had done enough to crack the Top 10 once again. It was a week with a lot of competition and this Viking managed to sneak in with the aid of his partners, Frank Wyatt and Jake Parnell. He is ½ of the SNPW Tag Team Champions, currently and with this ranking the question looms…is singles gold on the horizon?

7. Aaron Williams (@PlanetWilliams)-“The Baddest Man Alive” returns this week to the Top 10 after an impressive 2-0 week. The Rockstar Pro Champion and ½ of the D1W Tag Team Champions had a stellar week as he defeated Nate Wings on 7/2 and then followed that up with a successful title defense vs. Jake Crist and Alex Colon on 7/5. While he hasn’t quite been able to reach the #1 spot, if you look at his body of work, it’s tough to argue with his moniker and this week, the fans showed some support as well. #7 in the online poll.

8. Madman Pondo (@MadmanPond0)-Much like a few of the others in this week’s Top 10, it wasn’t so much just what he did this week that got him as much as it was his body of work over the past 2 weeks. With a record of 3-0, a D1W Heavyweight Title win and defense of said title, it was hard to deny Pondo this week or in the words of his trademark stop sign…”Can’t Stop Pondo.” His victory over Tracy Smothers on 7/5 was just icing on the proverbial birthday cake for the champ after celebrating his birthday all over the Midwest and East Coast last week. Tied for #8 in the online poll.

9. Alex Shelley (@FakeKinkade)-If this list was based on pure wrestling ability, quality of matches, and things of that nature, this internationally renowned talent would be at or near the top of the list every single week. Unfortunately for him and oddly, this is his first time in the Top 10 this year. Granted, he’s been in the Tag Team Top 5, but again, this is his first singles ranking. It was the perfect week for him to slip in after a 2-0 week at New Japan for ½ of the IWGP Junior Tag Team Champions and while his week couldn’t quite compete with his partner’s week, it was still more than enough to slip him in this week.

10. Eddy Young (@The_Future_Eddy)-“The Future” Eddy Young is a testament to the importance of the fan poll this week. There were SEVERAL different wrestlers that were all right around #10 this week based on votes from the official voters, but it was the dominance that Young showed in the online vote that pushed him into the Top 10. It was a solid 2-0 week for the SWE Heavyweight Champion, but an argument could be made for several other wrestlers for spot #1 this week, but again, it was his fan support that helped him make his case for a well-deserved ranking. #1 in the online poll and People’s Champ this week with 472 votes.

Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of July 7th, 2014

Postby PhenomenalTLD » Fri Jul 11, 2014 10:58 am

Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of July 7th, 2014
http://wp.me/p4kQ6t-GO

Image

1. The London Riots (Rob Lynch @RobLynchRIOTS & James Davis @LondonRiotsJD)-It’s been a long time coming, but the IPW: UK Tag Team Champions finally grabbed their first #1 ranking! While their win (teaming with Rhia O’Reilly) in a 6 person tag vs. FSU & Addy Starr on 7/4 at PROGRESS wasn’t particularly impressive when taken on its own, individual merit, it was their overall body of work in the past few months that pushed them up to #1 this week. 9 out of their last 10 matches have been victories and at the end of the day, that was enough to impress the voters on a week where no one was particular dominant.

2. Team IOU (Kerry Awful @KerryAwful & Nick Iggy @IggyNJ210)-“The People’s Champs” did two things they have a history of doing: 1. They defeated The Hooligans on 7/6 at Beyond Wrestling’s Sleeper Cell Taping and 2. They dominated and WON the online voting competition for a record 7th time. In fact, that record was previously held by them. No other team has even come close to this type of popularity. That being said, with Nick Iggy out of the country for a brief time, the official voters didn’t quite muster up enough support for IOU to get them back into a tie with Juicy Product for most #1 rankings all-time. With this #2 ranking, they have Juicy Product squarely in their sights.

3. The Pain Killers (Donnie & Jacob Hollows @ProjectPainkill)-This tag team has been mentioned a lot in the Tag Team Top 5, but really haven’t broken through yet. This week was the week they finally made themselves known after defeating The Scarbonis at XICW Detroit to retain their XICW Tag Team Titles and pick up their 5 straight win, according to our friends at cagematch.net. #3 in the online poll.

4. Just UZ (B.T. Gunn & Stevie Xavier)-Much like a couple of other teams this week, this was the week they finally cracked the Top 5. The PBW Tag Team Champions defeated Hans Hoffman & Kayden Lay on 7/1 at ASW to continue their recent dominance of the UK. According to cagematch.net, they are 10-0 in 2014. This team has been quietly picking up wins and it finally paid off this week. If they can continue to rack up wins, the sky’s the limit when it comes to the Top 5.

5. Aaron Williams (@PlanetWilliams) & Ron Mathis (@RonMathis13)-The D1W Tag Team Champions got votes last week, but this week they bullied their way into the Top 5 after knocking off a solid team in Jake Crist and Alex Colon. They were originally supposed to face OI4K, but with Dave Crist unable to appear, they topped the makeshift team. It’s tough to say if a victory over the former #1 Tag Team would have gotten them higher in the Top 5, but as it is, this team defeated a team of two very good talents. It was an especially memorable week for Williams who was ranked in both the Indy Power Rankings Top 10 and the Tag Team Top 5.

Indy Power Rankings for the Week of July 14th, 2014

Indy Power Rankings for the Week of July 14th, 2014


http://wp.me/p4kQ6t-IP

Image

1. Kongo Kong/Osyris (@RealKongoKong)-The big man left very little room for argument this week. While some made a few arguments about his strength of competitions, no one argued about how dominant he has been. This week was no exception for the IWA Mid-South World Champion. First, he won a Gauntlet Match at FWF vs. Charles Matthews, Drax O’Brien, and Lazer Lowman on 7/8 (which was 3 on 1 by the way) and then he won the 2014 James Wilson Memorial Tournament at RCW by beating Hardcore Harry, and then Nick Cutler, Scotty Young, and Tripp Cassidy in a 4 Way on 7/11. In the last few months, he has been the very definition of DOMINANCE. The “most intimidating big man in wrestling” continues to crush his opponents. Next up: Shane Mercer at IWA Mid-South on 7/17. #3 in the online poll with 54 votes.

2. Matt Cage (@proudcaucasian)-Who can possibly argue that Matt Cage has not lived up to his nickname this year? He has been absolutely “Money” as the AAW Heritage Champion has been racking up wins all over the place. This week was no exception. He challenged Blake Steel for the Zero-1 USA Title but only came away with a DQ victory, but then defeated Tyler Priegel at SCW on 7/11, and then wrapped up his week with a career victory as he knocked off Chris Sabin at DREAMWAVE. He then challenged Christian Rose for DREAMWAVE’s next big show. Can “Money” add some more gold to his vault?

3. Rhett Giddins (@bmop_rhett)-The Florida Heavyweight Champion is proving himself with true staying power. While he may have dropped one spot from last week and the week before due to heavy competition from other players, he had another solid week and continues to get ranked. On 7/11 he defeated Earl Cooter at FIP and then followed that up with a successful title defense vs. Jonny Vandal on 7/12 at BELIEVE 76. If you look at wrestling in terms of pure stats (i.e. wins and losses) than it’s hard to say anyone has been much better than Giddins in the month of July so far.

4. John Wayne Murdoch (@johnmurdoch25)-The “Dick Murdoch of Death Matches” proved this week he doesn’t have to use weapons or bleed profusely in order to win matches. His first ranking is a good one as he defeated Jacob Black at IWA Mid-South on 7/10, then knocked off Charles Albenasi at FIP on 7/11, before finishing the weekend with a victory over Blake Balakis on 7/12. Impressive to say the least. As impressive as a guy his size doing a Canadian Destroyer? Hard to say. Look for more appearances from him in the future as his star continues to rise. #4 in the online poll with 28 votes.

5. Ricochet (@KingRicochet)-As if you didn’t know already, in 2014 the world has been his oyster. With multiple title wins and tournament victories, the current DGUSA Open the Freedom Gate Champion has been on a tear all year long. He returns to the Top 10 after a 3-0 week at Dragon Gate in Japan where he won several tag team matches in various forms. The only thing holding him back from a #3, #2, or even #1 ranking this week was his lack of singles victories. He doesn’t lack them in 2014 but he’s not had one in a few weeks. Perhaps the week coming up will be the week when he achieves that goal once again? For now, Ricochet returns home to the Top 10 with more big things on the horizon. #10 in the online poll.

6. Matt Cross (@MDoggMattCross)-If there is one guy who defines “Title Collector” this year, it’s Matt Cross. At this point it would be easier to ask the question as to what title he DOESN’T hold rather than asking what titles he does hold. He is the CWF, Smash Wrestling, and now GSW Breakthrough Champion after defeating Tommy End on 12/7 for the vacant title. Obviously with this type of success, this is not his first time in the Top 10, but what he has yet to accomplish is a #1 ranking. Could that be the next accolade he adds to his already full mantle?

7. Trent Barreta (@trentylocks)-Whether he goes by “Barreta” or just throws a question mark at the end of his name, it’s hard to argue with his success. The FIP World Champion had one of the bigger wins of the weekend (some would say the biggest title defense, even) when he knocked off Rich Swann and Roderick Strong in a 3 Way to retain the title on 7/11. While he has certainly been good, he hasn’t made as many Top 10 appearances this year as one might expect. With arguably the biggest win of the weekend, perhaps that’s just the momentum he needs to start climbing the Top 10 ladder in the upcoming weeks.

8. Eddy Young (@The_Future_Eddy)-As if his 2-0-1 record the past week in the ring wasn’t enough, the SWE Heavyweight Champion set a new record in the online voting competition. He is now a 3 Time People’s Champion after collecting 1,576 votes and crushing the old record of 1,004 votes, held by Josh Bodom. Jimmy Nutts gave him a scare for most of the day as he broke the record as well, but at the end of the night, it was Eddy Young that once again reigned supreme. His popularity as well as his win-loss record have been quite impressive the last couple of months.

9. DJ Hyde (@DJHyde_1)-Say what you want about DJ Hyde as an owner or as a wrestler, but at the end of the day, when this week was over with, he was the NEW Rockstar Pro Champion. The title went from Aaron Williams to Alex Colon on 7/9 to Rhino on 7/11, before finally making its home with DJ Hyde on 7/11. It was a weird week for a title that only had 2 previous owners. DJ Hyde, surprisingly, is making his first appearance in the Top 10. He’s had a mention here or there, but it was this title win that finally put him over the top.

10. Chasyn Rance (@ChasynRance)-Maybe not a popular choice among the wrestling community, but the official voters have been given the marching orders to stay as fair and unbiased as possible. It was impossible to deny the FIP Florida Heritage Champion anymore after picking up his 5th and 6th victories in the last 3 weeks. His record of 9 wins out of his last 10 (the only non-win was a draw vs. Rhett Giddins) is as about as good as anyone on this list. So love it or hate it, the decision was made without any personal biases and based solely on his in-ring wins and losses recently.

Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of July 14th, 2014

Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of July 14th, 20141
http://wp.me/p4kQ6t-J2

Image

1. Juicy Product (JT Dunn @TheJuiceee & David Starr @TheProductDS)-Just when we thought this tag team couldn’t do anything else to surprise us, they shocked the world again. No one thought they’d be adding more gold to their collection on 7/12, but that’s exactly what they did when they challenged CUNTS (Kimber Lee & Annie Social) to an impromptu WSU Tag Team Title Match. They quickly came out victorious over the former #1 Tag Team and added yet another set of titles to their collection. They now hold the FIP, CZW, NYWC, and WSU Tag Team Titles and that…has earned them their record 7th #1 ranking. They broke their own previous record of 6 #1 rankings from a few weeks ago. Next on their agenda: MORE titles and a date with the Young Bucks at Beyond Wrestling. #2 in the online poll with 72 votes.

2. The Hooligans (Devin & Mason Cutter @BeardedBullys)-You’d be hard pressed to find a team more consistent in 2014 than Devin & Mason Cutter. While Juicy Product and Team IOU have been ranked #1 more times, The Hooligans have been ranked more often. They are the PGP, JCW, and Zero-1 USA Tag Team Champions and last week they defeated Shane Mercer and American Viking at IWA Mid-South on 7/10 and American Viking and Sir Isaac on 7/11 to improve their record to 6-2 over the last 3 weeks. #3 in the online poll with 68 votes.

3. The Hystars (Atlas Hytower @AtlasHytower & Lance Star)-This tag team continues to surprise people as they get their 2nd ranking this week after winning their 4th straight match as a team. The PWAS Detroit Tag Team Champions defeated Breyer Wellington & N8 Mattson of The Threat to retain the titles on 7/11. They are absolutely living proof as to how consistency is key when it comes to these rankings. Maybe they haven’t beaten a team like The Young Bucks or Hooligans, but what they’ve been doing is quietly picking up wins and successfully defending their titles. Could a #1 ranking be the next goal?

4. Team Good Balls (Johnny Primer & GOOD HANK FLANDERS)-The IWE Tag Team Champions have had some close calls, but have yet to really break into the Top 5. They’ve definitely had some weeks where they deserved it, but this week they left little doubt as they went 2-0 on the weekend to retain their titles and continue their reign as champs. On 7/11 they defeated former champions The Leatherheads and then followed that up by defeating Pat Skillz & Christian Cassanova on 7/12. Expect more big things from them if they can continue to retain those titles.

5. The Dudley Boyz (Bubba Ray Dudley @REALBully5150 & D-Von Dudley @TestifyDevon)-This one may be a head scratcher for people who weren’t paying attention. How did a TNA tag team get ranked in the INDY Power Rankings (tag team edition)? Simple. They weren’t wrestling at TNA this week, so what did they do? They won the 2CW Tag Team Titles with a win over Kevin Steen & Jason Axe on 7/13 in a No Holds Barred Match. Hopefully we can get some dream matches with their title run, but time will tell. As long as they’re not active with TNA that week, they’ll have another shot at getting into the Tag Team Top 5.

People’s Champs. London Riots (Rob Lynch @RobLynchRIOTS & James Davis @LondonRiotsJD)-The online voting competition was going at snail's pace until the last couple of hours when 3 teams all jumped in front of F1rst Generation who led for most of the day. Out of NOWHERE, the IPW: UK British Tag Team Champions won the competition and became People's Champs for the week.
