Default Indy Power Rankings for the Week of March 31st, 2014

Indy Power Rankings for the Week of March 31st, 2014



1. Melvin Maximus-The OVW TV Champion is unstoppable! He grabs his first ever #1 ranking after rattling off 23 straight wins! He joins Rockstar Spud and Randy Royal as previous OVW TV Champions to get the elusive #1. He’s been absolutely “Marvelous” during this run and this past week he defeated Clint Poe and Elvis Pridemore to continue that run. While he may be a fairly regional name in the Kentuckiana area, the amount of wins he’s racked up had the voters taking notice this week. Congrats to him. #5 in the online poll.

2. Chris Hero-This week “Chris is awesome” once again. After 3 big victories vs. Tommaso Ciampa at PWG on 3/28, Chris Masters at IWF on 3/29, and Tyson Dux at SMASH Wrestling on 3/30 to go 3-0 on the weekend, he makes his way to the #2 spot this week. It’s his 2nd highest ranking to date as he was #1 just 2 weeks ago before falling out of the Top 10 completely. The EVOLVE Champion has really improved his win-loss record as of late (winning 8 of his last 10 matches) and if this continues, you’ll be seeing his name a lot more in the Top 10. #2 in the online poll.

3. Tommy End-“The Anti-hero” had a MAGICAL weekend with what he accomplished. He was a fantasy wrestling player’s dream come true as he defeated Mark Andrews at SWE on 3/29 and followed that up, by defeating The Starbux for the SWE Tag Team Titles, then defeated IPW: UK Champ Paul Robinson at PROGRESS on 3/30, and finally capped off the weekend with more gold by winning the ICW Tag Team Titles in a Ladder Match vs. The Buck Boys. He was a perfect 4-0 on the weekend. He has won 12 straight matches and his record is now 12-2 in 2014. There’s very little more you could ask from a competitor than what he did this week and he DESERVES his high ranking.

4. Matt Cage-After several week away from the Top 10 (and Top 5 for that matter), “Money” gets in again this week after going 3-0 as the SCW Heavyweight/AAW Heritage Champion defeated Marek Brave on 3/29 to retain the Heritage Title for a 4th time as champion. He then went to the Beyond Sleeper Cell taping and defeated Willie Richardson and Serge White. The former #1 has been OWNING the Midwest in 2014.

5. Dylan Drake-After being ranked #6 last week, “The Golden Boy” is back again! He is now 3-0 the last 3 weeks after making Buddy Royal tap out at PREMIER Wrestling on 3/30. With as much competition as there was this week, making the Top 10 with just one match and one victory is a hell of an accomplishment for this up and coming West Coast star. People’s Champ for the 2nd time in 3 weeks as he was #1 in the online poll.

6. Ryan Howe-FINALLY he gets some of the respect he rightfully deserves. While he didn’t garner strong support in the online poll, the official voters saw what he’s been accomplishing lately and showed their appreciation with a lot of votes his way. He defeated Raul LaMotta on 3/26 and Paredyse (by DQ) on 3/29. Aside from the Nightmare Rumble, he has not lost since 12/11/13. He has won over 19 matches since then. No one has been more deserving of a Top 10 ranking recently than him and he finally breaks through.

7. Arik Royal-“Big” Arik Royal jumps back into the Indy Power Rankings as he defeated Marcellus King to once again retain the CWF Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight title for get this…a 23rd time! Yes, he has 23 successful title defenses and shows no signs of stopping. He has held the title since 12/29/12, dominating all the competition.

8. Shane Hollister-The AAW Heavyweight Champion returns to the Indy Power Rankings on the strength of a HUGE victory over last week’s #2 (and 2013 IPR 100 #1) Michael Elgin on 3/29. As champion, whether you love him or hate him, you have to respect his ability to meet some of the biggest challenges and come out victorious. This week was no different.

9. Nikki Storm-Voters gave this import a lot of respect this week as she was 2-0 on the weekend with wins vs. Angel Dust and Hania The Howling Huntress at AIW on 3/29. She has won 8 straight matches overall with a record of 8-1 in 2014.

10. Athena-What a week for Athena! She defeated Mia Yim on 3/29 and then followed that up by defeating Allysin Kay for the AIW Women’s Title that very same day. She is now 3-1-1 in 2014 and holds one of the most prestigious women’s titles in North America. #8 in the online poll.

Honorable Mention. Marcus Anthony-OVW Heavyweight Champion went 2-0 this week to continue his impressive string of victories.

On another note it's kind of weird to see females on the list. I know there isn't a deep pool of them to rank like the men but it still seems like they would belong on their own list if they were going to be ranked as well. Thunderkitty has defintely been making her rounds though.

It's kind of a catch 22. On the one hand, it's tough to rank women vs. men in a Top 10 system like this on a weekly basis, BUT on the other hand, a lot of times it's tough to rank women on a weekly basis on their own scale. The women just don't get as many opportunities to work as the men and on top of that, a lot of times they're wresting men! Especially in a place like Beyond Wrestling. In 2015 we may start a Women's Top 3 on a weekly basis and see how that goes, but for now, this seems to be the only sure fire way to get them included without totally having a watered down list every week for them.

Default Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of March 31st, 2014

First and foremost, THANK you to everyone who voted!


Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of March 31st, 2014



1. The Hooligans (Devin & Mason Cutter)-It’s a record! The 3rd straight #1 ranking for The Hooligans and these bearded bullies (@BeardedBullys on Twitter) have really hit their groove in 2014. Just a few weeks ago, on Weekly Wrestling Podcast IPR Live! we lamented the fact that they had struggled a bit in 2014, but things can change quickly. The PGP, Zero-1 USA and SNPW Tag Team Champions went 3-0 over the weekend with wins vs. Jake Dirden/Alex Rudolph at IWAU, The Conrads at Beyond Wrestling, and Markus Crane & Isaias Velazquez at Beyond Wrestling. They have won 7 straight matches. #3 in the online poll with 45 votes.

2. Sumerian Death Squad (Tommy End & Michael Dante)-TWO Tag Team Title wins in one weekend! People talking about all the things The Young Bucks have accomplished (rightfully) but how many times have they won 2 sets of tag team titles in the same weekend?! From what we can tell…never. They are the NEW SWE Tag Team Champions after beating The Starbux on 3/29 for the titles. They are also the NEW ICW Tag Team Champions after beating The Bucky Boys in a ladder match on 3/30 for the titles. They are 4-1 as a team in 2014 and winners of 3 straight matches as a team. #5 in the online poll with 22 votes.

3. Joey Janela & Rhett Titus-The NEW JCW Pro Tag Team Champions made an impact in a big way over the weekend. They defeated Glitz and Glamor, The Spirit Squad, and Chris Dickinson/Aaron Epic on 3/28 to go 3-0 on the weekend and make their first splash in the Tag Team Top 5. No team had more victories over the weekend than them.

4. Jollyville Fuck-Its (Russ Myers & T-Bone)-AIW Tag Team Champions defeated The Social Network (Annie Social & Heidi Lovelace) on 3/29 to retain the titles. They have won 8 straight matches as a team and have held the titles since 11/29/13. No one can argue with their dominance at AIW.

5. Bravado Brothers (Lancelot & Harlem Bravado)- DGUSA Open the United Gate Champions became the NEW WrestleForce Tag Team Champions when they defeated The Love Hate Machine on 3/30. They are 3-3 as a team in 2014 but now hold two sets of titles.

1st. Honorable Mention. Reno SCUM (Adam Thornstowe & Luster the Legend)-Beat the Young Bucks at IWF on 3/29. #2 in the online poll with 61 votes.

2nd Honorable Mention. Team IOU (Kerry Awful & Nick Iggy)- NWA Southern Tag Team Champions defeated Mayhem on 3/28 at NWA SAW. People’s Champs for the 5th time this week (#1 in the online poll) with 75 votes.

Default Indy Power Rankings for the Week of April 7th, 2014

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

Image

1. Ricochet-The Dragon Gate Open the Dream Gate Champion wasn’t content with just being the champion of the promotion in Japan…he wanted more. With that being said, he came, he saw, and he conquered the over 800 day champion in Johnny Gargano to become the NEW DGUSA Open the Freedom Gate Champion on 4/4. He then defeated Chris Hero, Masato Tanaka, and Roderick Strong on 4/5, before losing the 6 Man Tag Team Tournament Final in a 3 Way Elimination Match to The Premier Athlete Brand. He is 22-5 in his last 27 matches. Hail to the king once again as he has now tied the record for most #1’s (5) in a year and it’s only April! #2 in the online poll.

2. Melvin Maximus-The OVW TV Champion has proven once again that he is as unbeatable right now as anyone has been on the indies in 2014. After a 4-0 week this week at OVW, he has now won 27 straight matches. Let that soak in a bit. 27 up and 27 down for the champ. “Official” voters argued that strength of schedule hasn’t been up to par for him, but he beats whoever is in front of him. #4 in the online poll.

3. Matt Cross-“M-Dogg” would have been #1 on most other weeks with his win in the historic ECWA Super 8 Tournament, but this was not a normal week. This was the week of Wrestlecon. Despite many HUGE talents being down in New Orleans, Matt Cross made an impact by knocking off Gran Akuma, Ricky Martinez, and John Skyler on 4/5 to win the 18th Annual tournament. Congrats to a guy who has been plying his trade for quite some time now. #6 in the online poll.

4. Shane Hollister-After being ranked #8 last week, the AAW Heavyweight Champion defeated last week’s #4 Matt Cage on 4/5 to win the SCW Heavyweight title to become a double champion. As good as last year was for “The Shug”, this year has been absolutely epic! He’s already scored two #1 rankings and with his current climb up the IPR ladder, he’s looking for his 3rd. With AAW running this weekend, can he cash in a personal best, third #1? #3 in the online poll.

5. Adam Cole-The ROH/PWG World Champion makes a rare 2014 appearance after 2 big victories over the weekend. First he defeated Jay Briscoe in a violent Ladder War to take possession of both “World” titles at ROH and then he teamed with Michael Bennett and Matt Hardy to beat Kevin Steen and The Briscoes in a 6 Man War. Cole has not been quite as dominant in 2014 as he was in late 2013, but he’s starting to get momentum and if he can keep it up, LOOK THE HELL OUT. #5 in the online poll.

6. Uhaa Nation-While the fans didn’t show up for him in the online poll, you can’t deny his recent success. Over the weekend he teamed with Masato Yoshino to defeat T-Hawk & Yosuke Santa-Maria on 4/5 and MAD BLANKEY in an 8 Man Tag on 4/6. He has won 11 of his last 12 matches with a 22-11 record in 2014. It’s been another good year so far for “The One Man Nation”.

7. Ivelisse-The SHINE Champion had arguably the best single weekend of anyone in the Top 10 this week (sans possibly Ricochet with his title win). She defeated Jazz on 4/4 at A Wrestling Odyssey to retain the title, Kimber Lee at SHIMMER on 4/5, and Mercedes Martinez at DGUSA on 4/5. She has won 8 straight matches and shows absolutely no sign of stopping. She DOMINATED the online poll with a 28 vote margin of victory. She is your “People’s Champ” this week.

8. Nikki Storm-All she does is win. She moves up one spot from last week as she is now 3-0 the last 2 weeks after ending Thunderkitty’s win streak at SHIMMER Volume 62. She has won 9 straight matches overall and is 9-1 in 2014. Much like Uhaa, her fans didn’t show up to the online poll, but she did enjoy success among the “official” voters.

9. Athena-Much like Nikki Storm, Athena moves up one spot from last week after a solid weekend with yet another victory. The AIW Women’s Champion defeated Candice LeRae on 4/5 at SHIMMER to extend her impressive win streak. She is 4-1-1 in 2014. #9 in the online poll.

10. Jay Lethal-He didn’t get a lot of love in the online poll this week, but clearly he didn’t need too much of it. Over the weekend he defeated Tommaso Ciampa on 4/4 in a Best 2 out of 3 Falls Match to win the ROH World TV Title for a 2nd time and retained the title by DQ vs. Alex Koslov on 4/5. It was really a shocking win for Lethal and while his 2014 win-loss record hasn’t been as good as he’d probably hope for, he’s got some gold (and a ranking) now.

Honorable Mention. RD Evans-Went 2-0 this week (100 straight imaginary victories). Has won 9 out of 10 matches, overall.

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

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



1. BULLET CLUB (Doc Gallows & Karl Anderson)-A first! This is not only their first time ranked #1 in the Tag Team Top 5, but also the first time that ANYONE has been ranked #1 in the Tag Team Top 5 after being ranked #1 in the Indy Power Rankings in 2013 (pre-Tag Team Top 5). That’s what type of year Gallows and “The Machine Gun” are having as they once again retained their IWGP Tag Team Titles on 4/6 vs. Hirooki Goto & Katsuyori Shibata. With 8 of their last 10 matches being wins, they’ll be a force to be reckoned with potentially for the rest of 2014.

2. Bravado Brothers (Lancelot & Harlem Bravado)- The DGUSA Open the United Gate Champions/WrestleForce Tag Team Champions had a hell of a weekend as they went 3-0 in straight up tags, but their one blemish in a 6 man tag may have cost them #1 this week. Nevertheless, The Bravado Bandwagon rolls on as they’ve won 5 straight 2 on 2 tag team matches. They are another team that are just starting to get their legs under them in 2014.

3. The Decade (BJ Whitmer, Jimmy Jacobs, Adam Page)-Different pairing. Same result. On 4/4 at ROH they teamed to defeat Adrenaline RUSH & Andrew Everett. They are 8-1 as a stable since forming with the only loss being a 2 on 2 tag by Whitmer & Jacobs at IWA Mid-South. They are 8-0 as any type of unit at ROH. This was Adam Page’s first teaming with the group but once again they remain unblemished in perhaps the biggest independent wrestling promotion in the U.S. in ROH.

4. Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson)-Another week goes by and once again, arguably the best tag team on the indies are not #1. Despite that, they are STILL the PWG, ROH, IWGP Junior Heavyweight, and HOG Tag Team Champions. On 4/6 they defeated El Desperado and Kota Ibushi to retain the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Titles to improve their recent record. They’ve won 3 out of their last 5 matches. #5 in the online poll.

5. Team IOU (Kerry Awful & Nick Iggy)- The NWA Southern Tag Team Champions make yet another appearance in the Tag Team Top 5 as a boy and his dog were once again successful over the weekend, defeating Shooting Impact on 4/4 at NWA SAW. This was one of the few times in recent memory that they didn’t rank #1 or #2 in the online poll, but did end up at #3 with an impressive 86 votes.

Honorable Mention. Dylan Bostic & “Mexicutioner” Roberto De Luna-OVW Southern Tag Team Champions defeated Aaron Sky & Robbie Walker and Mohamad Ali Vaez & Adam Revolver. #1 in the online poll with a NEW RECORD 255 VOTES. They are your People’s Champs this week.

They definitely have an advantage with OVW running every week. Their guys get a lot of opportunities to win (or lose) and help out their ranking. Sometimes strength of competition hurts though.

Default Indy Power Rankings for the Week of April 14th, 2014

http://wp.me/p4kQ6t-lD


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

1. Ricochet-The Dragon Gate Open the Dream Gate Champion and DGUSA Open the Freedom Gate Champion went back to Japan this week and well, he was flawless. Is it the Ricochet Power Rankings or the Indy Power Rankings? He has now broken the record for most times at #1 in a single calendar year. He passes Adam Cole, Johnny Gargano, and Kevin Steen for the distinction. After 2 weekend wins, he is 24-5 in his last 29 matches. #9 in the online poll.

2. Melvin Maximus-At this point you can start calling the OVW TV Champion the Rodney Dangerfield of the Indy Power Rankings, because he gets no respect. Yes, he’s a former #1 and a perennial contender each week, but despite 30 straight wins, he has been #2 the last 2 weeks. He won 7 matches over the last 2 weeks, but again, didn’t get the #1 ranking. One thing that several voters have complained about is his strength of competition. Perhaps OVW will start lining up some of their top guys to run into “The Marvelous One” and we’ll see what happens. Regardless, congrats on 30 straight wins and another top 5 ranking. #6 in the online poll.

3. Drake Younger-“The Ultraviolent Golden Boy” came just short of getting his first #1 on his farewell to the indies tour. What he did accomplish, however, is he is the first person to ever win CZW’s Tournament of Death AND Best of the Best, which he accomplished on 4/12 defeating Papadon & Timothy Thatcher in a Way, AR Fox, and then Biff Busick in the finals. Unfortunately, his loss to BJ Whitmer at IWA Mid-South on 4/13 may have cost him #1, but as always, he was a class act in defeat. Indeed, thank you, Drake. #7 in the online poll.

4. Matt Cage-Despite what you might think about how amazing Drake Younger’s week appeared to be, perhaps the biggest single week came from “Money” Matt Cage. First he retained his AAW Heritage title vs. 5 other wrestlers on 4/11, then he defeated Prince Mustafa Ali on 4/12 at DREAMWAVE, before finally capping off the weekend with a HUGE win vs. Kyle O’Reilly at IWA Mid-South on 4/13. After falling out of the Top 10 last week, he has returned with a vengeance.

5. Shane Hollister-The AAW/SCW Heavyweight Champion would have likely been ranked higher on a different week, but this week was uncommon. He went 2-0 with wins vs. Jimmy Jacobs and Marshe Rockett, but unfortunately, he fell a spot due to some big success from other contenders this week. There’s no doubt “The Shug” will use this as fuel in the upcoming weeks in the quest for his 3rd #1 ranking.

6. Uhaa Nation-“The One Man Nation” remains at the same spot from last week despite a very good 3-1 weekend. He started slow as he was defeated by YAMATO at Dragon Gate on 4/8, but bounced back with a tag team win teaming with Masato Yoshino to beat Naruki Doi & BxB Hulk on 4/10. He then rattled off 2 more wins vs. Naruki Doi, BxB Hulk, and Kzy on 4/12 and Mr. Quu Quu Tanizaki Naoki Toyonaka Dolphin, Jimmy Kanda, and Jimmy Kagetora on 4/13. He has won 14 of his last 16 matches with a solid 25-12 record in 2014. He’s still in search of that elusive #1 ranking.

7. Zack Sabre, Jr.-Successful weekend for Sabre as he teamed with Yoshinari Ogawa and defeated Atsushi Kotoge & Taiji Ishimori on 4/12 to win the GHC Heavyweight Tag Team Titles and Masao Inoue & Tatsumi Fujinami on 4/13 to retain the titles at NOAH. He has won 3 straight matches and 4 of 5, overall. Impressive weekend for the superstar from the UK.

8. Heidi Lovelace-Despite getting absolutely no love in the online poll, Heidi did enough to impress the official voters this week with a 5-1 record. 6 matches in the span of 4 days is impressive enough, but to win 5 of the 6 made a big impression. With wins Ian Rotten & Sabrina Sixx at EPW on 4/10, vs. Jessicka Havok & Nevaeh at AAW on 4/11, vs. Angie Skye at SHIMMER on 4/12, vs. Jessicka Havok on 4/13 at SHIMMER, and vs. The Canadian Ninjas & Jessicka Havok on 4/13 at SHIMMER, she made voters to take notice. Her only loss was to Angie Skye on 4/12 at SHIMMER.

9. Kellie Skater-1/2 of Global Green Gangsters makes his first singles appearance in the Top 10 as she went 4-0 over the weekend. Had she not lost to Kimber Lee last week, her ranking could have been even higher. While she is mostly a tag team specialist right now, 1/2 of the SHIMMER Tag Team Champions tore it up this week with 3 tag team wins and a singles win vs. Nikki Storm, who was on a long winning streak until that time. Look out for her in the Tag Team Top 5 as well this week.

10. Benjamin Kimera-The former 2 time #1 in the Indy Power Rankings has won 8 straight, defeating G-Force & Revolution in 6 Man Tag Team action on 4/9 at Rockstar Pro Wrestling and vs. Matt Brannigan on 4/11. While he may not be the “biggest” name on the indies, he makes up for it with a fantastic win-loss record.

Honorable Mention. Robby Starr-NEW OCW Champion after defeating Jeff Cannon for the title on 4/12. People’s Champion a RECORD 215 votes.

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

Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of April 14th, 2014 http://wp.me/p4kQ6t-lK



1. Team IOU (Kerry Awful & Nick Iggy)- The NWA Southern Tag Team Champions get their record tying 3rd #1 in the Tag Team Top 5 as a boy and his dog were absolutely unstoppable over the weekend. They defeated Xion & Stanley TWICE at NWA SAW on 4/11. They then went to IWA Mid-South on 4/13 where they won a Gauntlet Match vs. The Hooligans, Alex Castle & Frank Wyatt, and The Submission Squad, eliminating every single team from the match. There really was no debate among the official voters this week. It was a clean sweep among them. #2 in the online poll with 143 votes.

2. Men of the Year (Michael Elgin & Ethan Page)-The AAW Tag Team Champions and former 2 time #1’s in the Tag Team Top 5 defeated Rich Swann & Lince Dorado on 4/11 to retain the titles. They are now 5-0 as a team in AAW. Who would have thought they would be in the Top 5 so many times when 2014 began? It’s been a pleasant surprise to see them do their thing this year.

3. Global Green Gangsters (Kellie Skater & Tomoka Nakagawa)-Talk about a team that didn’t get as much respect as they probably deserve! The SHIMMER Tag Team Champions defeated Leon & Ray on 4/12 to retain the titles, then defeated Rhia O’Reilly & Saraya Knight on 4/13 and Cheerleader Melissa & Mercedes Martinez as well to go 3-0 on the weekend. They have won 12 straight matches as a team. You would think that would be enough to get them a #1 or even a #2, but strong competition held them back. #4 in the online poll.

4. BULLET CLUB (Karl Anderson & Doc Gallows)-The IWGP Tag Team Champions fell slightly this week as over the weekend they teamed with Bad Luck Fale and Tama Tonga and were defeated by Captain Taiwan (Captain New Japan), Hirooki Goto, Manabu Nakanishi, & Yuji Nagata on 4/12 but bounced back and retained the IWGP Tag Team Titles vs Captain Taiwan & Hirooki Goto on 4/13.They have won 9 of their last 12 matches and are 14-8 in 2014 as a team (4-1 as a 2 man team). #5 in the online poll.

5. The Viking War Party (Alexandre Rudolph & Jake Parnell)-The NEW SNPW Tag Team Champions make their first appearance in the Tag Team Top 5 after defeating former #1 The Hooligans on 4/12 to win the titles and followed that up with a win in a 3 Way at IWA Mid-South on 4/13 vs. Joseph Schwartz & Chase Matthews/Josh Crowe & Marcus Edwards to go 2-0 on the weekend. Look out for them to pop up more as 2014 rolls along. #3 in the online poll.

Honorable Mention. Generation Genesis (Jeff Boom & Mitch Mitchell)-The People’s Champs this week with 173 votes in the online poll after becoming the NEW NWA FUW Tag Team Champions by defeating Deimos & Kennedy Kendrick on 4/11.
