Default Indy Power Rankings for the Week of March 17th, 2014



http://wp.me/p4kQ6t-cw
Indy Power Rankings for the Week of March 17th, 2014

1. Chris Hero-The EVOLVE Champion gets his first #1 ranking in the Indy Power Rankings on the strength of his 4 victories in the wXw 16 Carat Gold Tournament on 3/14, 3/15, and 3/16. With wins over Freddy Stahl, Karsten Beck, Adam Cole (last week’s #3), and Axel Tischer, the voters were split on if Hero had the overall body of work in 2014 (wins and losses) to get the #1, but in the end, “The Knockout Artist” won out. #3 in the online poll.

2. Caleb Konley-“Caleb got robbed!” Several of the voters voiced this outcry but to no avail. After weeks in the Indy Power Rankings, the PWX and WrestleForce Champion falls just short of getting the #1 this week, despite 3 wins at PWX over the weekend. With wins vs. the CZW Wired TV Champion Shane Strickland, Chip Day, and Jake Manning, the incumbent #2 would have easily been the #1 on most weeks, but Hero’s impressive performance in 16 Carat Gold got the nod. Caleb has been consistently ranked for more than a month. When will his time come again at #1? #9 in the online poll.

3. Drew Gulak-The CZW World Champion shoots up the rankings this week after 2 more successful title defenses. He took his title down to Florida and defended it twice at FIP vs. Timothy Thatcher and Roderick Strong. Both times he came out on top. He continues his march towards #1 again…for a better CZW.

4. Ricochet-The Dragon Gate Open the Dream Gate Champion added gold to his collection this week, but unfortunately for him, lost it the next day. He went 2-2 this week in tag team action with Rich Swann to make his overseas total 18-2 on this tour of Japan and Europe. He and Swann won the RPW Tag Team Titles and defeated The Young Bucks before losing them to The Kartel on 3/16. It was an amazing run at #1 for Ricochet, but he has not fallen out of the Top 10 just yet. Indeed, hail to the king. #10 in the online poll.

5. Aaron Williams-Surprisingly, despite 2 wins this week, The Rockstar Pro Champion falls back a spot this week. Blame heavy competition or blame disrespect, but Williams will definitely take offense to this slight. With victories vs. Davey Vega and Ricky Starks at IWA East Coast (teaming with Ron Mathis) and a win vs. Shane Mercer at Rockstar Pro, it seemed like he would be in a position to move up this week. Regardless, he sticks around this week and does not appear to be leaving the Top 10 any time soon. Can he bounce back and climb to #1 for the first time?

6. Da Fireman-2 wins this week and another title helps Da Fireman move up FOUR spots this week. While he may be unfamiliar to a lot of independent wrestling fans, he’s starting to blaze a trail all across the Southeast portion of the country. He has won 8 straight and is now a double champion (Flatline Pro Wrestling Heavyweight Champion and RCW Heavyweight Champion). #2 in the online poll.

7. Tim Donst-One online voter described Donst’s one night at AIW as being on par or better than most people’s entire weekend. Hard to argue with that after Tim Donst defeated Eddie Kingston and then proceeded to win the AIW Gauntlet for the Gold 9. With a little more activity, it’s very possible he could reach #1 at some point in the next few weeks/months. #7 in the online poll.

8. Melvin Maximus-Much like Aaron Williams, despite 2 wins this week, the OVW TV Champion (who does nothing but win) fell 3 spots. After defeating Robbie Walker and The Bodyguy over the weekend, he has now run his win streak to at least 9. He has been as dominant as any OVW TV Champion in recent memory.

9. AJ Styles-Hard to believe a name like AJ would be ranked this low after defeating Kevin Steen and AR Fox over the weekend, but that’s the harsh reality of the Indy Power Rankings sometimes. He has now won 3 straight and looks to build on that success when he takes on the current #1 at ROH in Dayton on Saturday 3/22.

10. Uhaa Nation-“The One Man Nation” transformed into “Beast Mode” over the weekend as he won 3 matches at Dragon Gate. Despite some recent struggles, the big man finds his way back into the Top 10 after re-establishing himself as a dominant force in Japan.

1st Honorable Mention. Dylan Drake-Defeated former #4 in the Indy Power Rankings Chris Masters at APW on 3/15. #1 in the online poll and People’s Champ for this week.

2nd Honorable Mention. Lince Dorado-Went 2-0, winning the FIP Florida Heritage Title. #8 in the online poll.

Default Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of March 17th, 2014


Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of March 17th, 2014

1. Team IOU (Kerry Awful & Nick Iggy)-A boy and his dog pull do it on back to back weeks! Their win vs. Mayhem was big, but they arguably didn’t have the biggest weekend of any of the candidates. The voters went with the incumbent this week as no one did enough to knock them from their perch this week. No one can argue with how successful they have been, not having lost a match since February 22nd, 2014. The NWA Southern Tag Team Champions don’t look like they’re slowing down any time soon. #3 in the online poll.

2. The Hooligans (Devin & Mason Cutter)-These bearded bullies took their fat flippy style and defended their SNPW Tag Team Titles once again on 3/15 and once again came out on top. This time they defeated Jake Dirden and Brandon Espinosa. They have picked up a ton of momentum recently and with shows in 3 different states coming up this weekend, a clean sweep could easily land them in the #1 spot next week. #2 in the online poll.

3. Juicy Product (JT Dunn & David Starr)-GREAT weekend for this Northeastern tag team in Florida of all places. A 2-0 weekend with wins vs. The Submission Squad and Aaron Solo & Jason Cade may have been the most impressive weekend of any of the candidates this week, but the lack of tag team gold and loss last week at CZW may have weighed on voter’s minds. They are absolutely rising stars, whether it’s in singles or tag team competition. #5 in the online poll.

4. The Kartel (Sha Samuels & Terry Frazier)-Wanna talk about coming out of nowhere? Talk about The Kartel. They reunited over the weekend and knocked off the Inner City Machine Guns for the RPW British Tag Team Titles on 3/16. Not only that, they got a TON of support this week in the online poll as they dominated from start to finish (though the Hooligans closed in several times) to become this week’s People’s Champions as they were #1 in the online poll.

5. Los Ben Dejos (Jay Rios & Jay Cruz)-The PWX Tag Team Champions could have had the #1 in the bag, but the loss vs. Adam Page in a Triple Threat match hurt this week. That being said, they still picked up two big tag team title defenses vs. Anthony Henry & Billy Brash and Andrew Everett & Trevor Lee. They’re really starting to make a name for themselves as they look to climb back to the #1 spot once again.

Honorable Mention. BULLET CLUB (Karl Anderson & Doc Gallows)-IWGP Tag Team Champions went 3-0 with 3 victories in 10 man tag team matches. #4 in the online poll.

My boy Donst making his way up the rankings, niiiiice, niiiiiice.

And I see IOU has claimed there number one spot they've worked so hard for. Actually got in a vote on your online poll this last time, I think it's obvious who I voted for.

Again, thanks for sharing!

Default Indy Power Rankings for the Week of March 24th, 2014

http://wp.me/p4kQ6t-fQ


Indy Power Rankings for the Week of March 24th, 2014

1. Ricochet-4 out of 5 weeks at #1! Unprecedented success for “The Future of Flight” as he is now #1 for the 4th time in 5 weeks. His record on his current overseas tour is an ASTOUNDING 20-2. 20 wins. 2 losses. Unbelievable. Over the weekend he knocked off Kris Travis and Josh Bodom in the UK to continue his dominance. Once again, indeed, hail to the king. #8 in the online poll with 28 votes.

2. Michael Elgin-After being unranked last week the “Unbreakable” one ran off a string of wins like only he can. Last year’s #1 in the IPR 100 went on a run where he tagged with Ethan Page to retain the AAW Tag Team Titles vs. OI4K, then defeated Cedric Alexander in singles at ROH, before polishing off the weekend with a victory over Jimmy Jacobs at Beyond Wrestling. It has been far too long since he sat at #1 and with PWG weekend on the horizon, the AIW Absolute Champion looks to grab the #1 spot once again. #9 in the online poll with 14 votes.

3. AJ Styles-His last 2 weeks have been simply…phenomenal. With wins over AR Fox and Kevin Steen last week and now Chip Day and last week’s #1 Chris Hero this week, it’s hard to imagine him not being in the Top 5 for this week. Since returning to the indies, he has been pretty dominant, losing only a handful of matches. Can AJ culminate his recent success with a #1 ranking in the near future? #10 in the online poll with 12 votes.

4. Melvin Maximus-The OVW TV Champion has been consistently unbeatable. 21 straight wins at this point! That’s right. 21 straight. Unbelievable win streak for Maximus as he continues his climb and quest to grab his first ever #1 ranking. It would put him up there with Rockstar Spud and Randy Royal as the only OVW TV Champions to get the elusive #1. He’s been “Marvelous” during this run.

5. Uhaa Nation-The One Man Nation shoots up to the Top 5 again this week after destroying the competition at Dragon Gate over the weekend. He had 3 (maybe 4) wins over the weekend as he ran right through Yosuke Santa Maria, YAMATO/BxB Hulk.Kzy, and Hollywood Stalker Ichikawa (twice according to some reports). He has now won either 7 or 8 straight matches and looks to get his first #1 ranking in the near future as well.

6. Dylan Drake-“The Golden Boy” makes his first appearance in the Indy Power Rankings Top 10! Oh sure it almost happened last week as he was “The People’s Champ” with 82 votes to win the online poll, but the official voters didn’t show him enough love to get him in. THIS week, it happened. After defeating Brian Cage at RWF, Dylan Drake proved himself to the voters and jumps in with both feet with a solid spot in the Top 10. #3 in the online poll with 64 votes.

7. JT Dunn-“The Juice” had won 3 straight until he ran into a man he patterned his style after in Chris Hero. At Beyond Wrestling “Critical Acclaim” they engaged in a stiff war that ended with both men knocked out. Had JT won that, he’d probably be much higher in the rankings. As it stands, he sits at 3-0-1 in his last 4 matches. “That New Knockout Kid” is still looking for his first ever #1 ranking. #7 in the online poll with 35 votes.

8. Ron Mathis-Relentless? No doubt about it. This week he won two more matches on his way to his first ranking in several weeks. He’s won 4 straight and shows no sign of stopping. This Rockstar Pro regular can go hardcore, ultraviolent, or straight up wrestling style. Now that he’s back in the Top 10, he looks to get into the Top 5 for the very first time.

9. RD Evans-While “The New Streak” may not be legit, he HAS won 2 straight and 7 of 8 overall. At ROH in Dayton on 3/22, he defeated Kyle O’Reilly/Silas Young/Romantic Touch in a 4 Corner Survival. He then tagged with Kevin Steen to defeat reDRagon. With wins like those, it’s hard not to include him in the Top 10 this week.

10. Chase Owens-Fantastic weekend for the NWA Junior Heavyweight Champion where he retained his title twice in Michigan and Ohio. On 3/22 he defeated Jack Thriller and Trey Gabriel in a 3 Way and then followed that up with a win vs. N8 Mattson on 3/23. He absolutely DOMINATED the online poll for the last few hours of the day. He is the “People’s Champ” this week with 113 votes in the online poll making him the fans’ choice as #1.

1st Honorable Mention. Ryan Howe-What more can be asked of Ryan Howe at this point? While he never gets a huge following in the online poll, he does have some die-hard fans in OVW. He has won over 17 matches since his last loss on 12/11/13.

Default Indy Power Rankings for the Week of March 24th, 2014

http://wp.me/p4kQ6t-fZ


Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of March 24th, 2014: Promotion Wars

1. The Hooligans (Devin & Mason Cutter)-The fat, flippy, bearded bullies did what they do best over the weekend. Compete and win. With 3 shows in 3 states and 5 matches overall, their drive to succeed paid off this week. They had a weekend record of 4-1 at Strong Style Wrestling (a loss to the Pain Killers), Pro Wrestling Glory (3 wins to win the Glory Tag Team Tournament), and THW. Very few teams are as motivated to succeed as them and this week was just one more example of that fact. #3 in the online poll with 57 votes.

2. The Decade (Roderick Strong, BJ Whitmer, & Jimmy Jacobs)-The former #1’s in the Tag Team Top 5 scored yet another victory over the weekend as they defeated Adrenaline RUSH & Caprice Coleman on 3/22. They are 3-0 as a 3 man team since forming. Whitmer & Jacobs are 4-1 as a team since reforming. Overall they are 7-1 (7-0 in ROH) since becoming a stable.

3. Men of the Year (Michael Elgin & Ethan Page)-The AAW Tag Team Champions do nothing but win and yet again, that’s what they did as they took on OI4K on 3/22 at Epic. They are now 4-0 as a team and show no signs of stopping. The 2 time former #1’s in the Tag Team Top 5 are attempting to stake their claim as one of the best tag teams in the world.

4. The Briscoes (Jay & Mark Briscoe)-For a team who doesn’t team on a consistent basis anymore, they’re pretty unstoppable. They once again defeated Adam Cole & Michael Bennett at ROH Flyin’ High on 3/22 to improve their record to 4-1-1 as a team in 2014. The only thing they’re lacking at this point is some gold. Could they return to the tag ranks at some point and claim yet another tag team title reign for their collection?

5. BULLET CLUB (Karl Anderson & Doc Gallows)-The IWGP Tag Team Champions defeated Captain New Japan, Hirooki Goto, Manabu Nakanishi, Ryusuke Taguchi & Tomoaki Honma at NJPW on 3/17, defeated Hirooki Goto, Manabu Nakanishi, Ryusuke Taguchi, Tiger Mask & Tomoaki Honma on 3/19, lost to Hirooki Goto, KUSHIDA, Manabu Nakanishi, Ryusuke Taguchi & Togi Makabe on 3/20, defeated Ryusuke Taguchi, Togi Makabe & Tomoaki Honma on 3/22, and lost to Great Bash Heel (Togi Makabe & Tomoaki Honma), Hiroshi Tanahashi & Ryusuke Taguchi on 3/23. They have won 6 of their last 8 matches and are 11-7 in 2014 as a team (2-1 as a 2 man team). They show no signs of stopping on their way to a potential first #1 in the Tag Team Top 5 in 2014.

1st Honorable Mention. Team IOU (Kerry Awful & Nick Iggy)-Previous back to back #1 in the Tag Team Top 5; went 1-2 on the weekend but won the online poll to be the People’s Champions this week.

2nd Honorable Mention. Jesse Vane & Matthew Justice-NYWC Tag Team Champions defeated Rack and Sack at Aftermath 2014 on 3/22 to retain the titles. #2 in the online poll.
