Suck...our..dicks!
Its a weekly ranking. Which means, if you don't have a match or just have one exhibition match the chances of you making the list is slim to none.

Exactly AND Adam Cole didn't wrestle over the weekend. Only one of the Young Bucks wrestled and he went 1-1. Remember, read the first post. It's based on wins-losses, strength of competition, and overall prestige of the wrestler. It's not about work rate and match quality. Enough people do that as it is. We wanted to do something different with a little more sports ties.

Yeah they went to a draw with Lords of Kaos and then most everyone else had 2-3 wins. Can't predict these things!

Re: Indy Power Rankings

This list is similiar to PWI in the sense that wins make you look stronger. If you look at this list weekly, you will realize wins and losses still matters in wrestling. You can't be a top guy and lose half of your matches.

Well I hope Team IOU sneaks back on your list next week, they seem to be consistently booked so I'm sure they got a good chance.

This is all actually really interesting to me, glad you are keeping up with everything and making sure the rankings are seen. Looking forward to the list on the 10th.

It's funny you mention that, because PWI's Top 10 was partially where the idea came from, except that theirs was never up to date. It was a great idea, in theory, and not to brag, but I think we took their idea and have mastered it to some degree. Maybe not mastered, but certainly improved, at least.

As a group, we LOVE Team IOU. Always busy. Always booked. We talked to the owner of Beyond Wrestling on www.weeklywrestlingpodcast.com on Tuesday and he was praising them on how badly they "want it". They've been to all of their sleeper cell tapings all over the country.

Also, thank you for the kind words. It really makes it worth it to know that people "get it" when it comes to what we do. One of our favorite things is getting some people who maybe aren't as well known (like a James Anthony or maybe Team IOU, etc...) some much needed exposure. We don't have any delusions about what we do getting people booked or anything, but we do think it helps get their name out there, if nothing else.

Re: Indy Power Rankings

Speaking of Team IOU, they'll be taking on our #1 in the Tag Team Top 5 this week at IWA Mid-South. Big matchup here!

Indy Power Rankings for the Week of March 10th, 2014

Indy Power Rankings for the Week of March 10th, 2014

1. Ricochet-Be honest. Regardless of what the online fan poll said, was there really another option at #1? 16-0 carries a lot of weight, especially in a promotion like Dragon Gate. Read that again. Ricochet WENT 16-0 ON THIS TOUR OF DRAGON GATE. This week he was 4-0 where on 3/5 he beat Gamma at DG, 3/6 he defeated Uhaa Nation, 3/8 he beat T-Hawk, and 3/9 he defeated Genki Horiguchi & Jimmy Susumu in a tag team match. There was simply no one that has even come close to this type of success in the last 3 weeks. His threepeat was inevitable. #2 in the online poll.

2. Caleb Konley-All he does is win recently. The PWX and WrestleForce Champion went to CZW on Saturday 3/8 and once again did, just that. He defeated Alexander James to extend his winning streak. It appears that his last loss was on February 8th, 2014. With as active as he has been (never taking a weekend off), that is truly an impressive feat. #5 in the online poll.

3. Adam Cole-The ROH World Champion, quite frankly, has had a mediocre year by his standards (in terms of wins-losses). This week, he righted the ship with 2 big wins at ROH as he successfully defended his title, not once, but twice. First he defeated Matt Taven to retain the title and then followed that up with a victory vs. Chris Hero in a Ringmaster’s Challenge to once again retain. He’s still just 3-2 in singles matches in 2014. #3 in the online poll.

4. Aaron Williams-The Rockstar Pro Champion dispelled the argument that he only wrestles once a week and furthered his point that he is the “Baddest Man Alive” after wrestling 3 matches and winning all 3. He was 3-0 this week with wins in a tag team matchvs. Dave Crist and Alan Wasalychyn, Jake Crist (to retain), and Brian Beech at WAR Wrestling. He’s looking to grab his first #1 ranking and with as consistent as he’s been lately, it’s hard to doubt him. Tied at #10 in the online poll.

5. Melvin Maximus-The OVW TV Champion continues to do nothing but win. This week it was 2 more victories for the champ as he defeated Tony Gunn to retain the title on 3/5. He added to that with a win vs. Bud Dwight on 3/7. He has won more than 7 straight matches and continues to roll as he looks to get the first #1 ranking for an OVW TV Champion since Randy Royal last year. Tied at #10 in the online poll.

6. James Anthony-The AIWF World Cruiserweight Champion defeated Mason Myles on 3/8 to once again retain the title. He has now won 5 straight matches. On top of that, he has dominated the online poll for 2 weeks straight. If he wants to call himself the “People’s Champ”, can anyone make a solid argument? Every week he has the online polling votes. Props to him.

7. Alex Castle-1/2 of the DREAMWAVE Tag Team Champions went 3-0 over the weekend to return to the Indy Power Rankings for the first time in 2014. It was a huge weekend for Castle as he defeated B-Boy at UWC, Danny Cannon and Angelus Layne in a 3 Way at SNPW, and was declared the winner at IWA Mid-South vs. Frank Wyatt (the other winner), Tripp Cassidy, and Zakk Sawyers. Castle is looking to become #1 for the first time much like the crew he’s connected to by many indy wrestling fans (Matt Cage, Christian Rose, and Shane Hollister). #6 in the online poll.

8. Drew Gulak-The former #1 in the Indy Power Rankings and current CZW World Champion did what he has done since 8/10/13 when he won the title…he won. He has won 3 of 4 matches after beating former EVOLVE Champion AR Fox on 3/8 to retain the title. Next up for Gulak: 2 big title defenses at FIP in Florida. #7 in the online poll.

9. Flex Armstrong-The BTW Heavyweight Champion was 3-0 on the weekend and 4-0-1 the last 2 weeks. This weekend he beat Slyck Wagner Brown, Matt Hardy, and Bam Shaw to retain the title on 3/7. He then defeated Gregory Edwards and The Modern Day Savages on 3/8. He has not lost since 3/15/13 (a DQ loss to Chris Masters). Has held the title since 6/1/12. He has been as dominant as any champion on the indies, when active. Unranked in the online poll.

10. Da Fireman- The Flatline Pro Wrestling Heavyweight Champion went 4-0 at APW Royson and Peach State Wrestling this week, defeating The Lethal Dose Stryknyn, Brandon Parker, The Korean Ken Lee, and Kevin Blue. 6-0 over the last 2 weeks. #3 in the online poll.

1st Honorable Mention. Ryan Howe-2 more big wins this week at OVW. Has not lost since December of 2013.

2nd Honorable Mention. Kahagas-Retained his NWA North American Title once again over the weekend. Has not lost in months.

Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of March 10th, 2014

http://wp.me/p4kQ6t-al



Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of March 10th, 2014

1. Team IOU (Kerry Awful & Nick Iggy)-A boy and his dog pull off the shocker! The voting was so tight this week that the fans’ poll determined who was #1 and the winners were Team IOU. After 2 victories over the weekend vs. Brian Lee & Lee Condry on 3/7 at NWA SAW and last week’s #1 The Hooligans at IWA Mid-South, the voters were split. Would it be the reputation and belt collecting of the Young Bucks or would it be the consistency in 2014 of Team IOU? IOU won out. Never, ever underestimate their popularity or quite frankly, their ability to win. #1 in the online poll with 84 votes and People’s Champs this week.

2. Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson)-The team that was clearly the favorite heading into the voting came up just short of #1 this week after perhaps suffering from their 6 man tag team loss vs. The Briscoes and Michael Elgin on 3/7. They bounced back with arguably the biggest win of the weekend when they defeated reDRagon for the ROH World Tag Team Titles. They now hold the ROH, PWG, HOG, and IWGP Junior Tag Team Titles. Their first #1 in 2014 has got to be on the horizon. #2 in the online poll with 77 votes.

3. Beaver Boys (Alex Reynolds & John Silver)-Surprisingly, this is the first time the CZW World Tag Team Champions have been ranked in quite some time. Over the weekend they defeated The Front (Jaka and Niles Sozio) to once again retain the titles. They have won 4 straight as a team, with 3 successful title defenses, overall. 9th in the online poll with just 1 vote.

4. The Briscoes (Jay & Mark Briscoe)-“Dem Boys” get their first ranking in the Tag Team Top 5 (they had been ranked previously in the Indy Power Rankings before the Tag Team Top 5 existed) with 2 big wins over the weekend. It’s arguable what their record actually was (2-0 or 2-0-1?) but regardless, they were undefeated with big wins in a 6 man tag team match vs. The Young Bucks and Kevin Steen and then a No DQ match vs. Outlaw Inc. (Homicide and Eddie Kingston). 4th in the online poll with 8 votes.

5. The Hooligans (Devin & Mason Cutter)-It looked like these bearded bullies were going to get ousted after their loss vs. Team IOU on 3/9 at IWA Mid-South, but the fans came out and helped them score their 3rd straight ranking. It wasn’t all bad news on the weekend for them as they did retain their SNPW Tag Team Titles vs. Christian Rose and Matt Cage (both former #1’s in the singles Top 10).


1st Honorable Mention. OI4K (Jake & Dave Crist)-Teamed with Azrieal and Chris Dickinson to defeat Alex Colon, Biff Busick, and The Juicy Product at CZW to run their win streak to 3 straight. #6 in the online poll with 3 votes.

2nd Honorable Mention. The Decade (Roderick Strong, BJ Whitmer, & Jimmy Jacobs)-Went 2-1 on the weekend, suffering their first loss since forming. Still 6-1 overall since the Decade has formed. No votes in the online poll.

Team Friendship (#5 in the online poll)
Josh Crane & Trik Davis
