Yep! The very day he was getting voted into the #1 spot. Luckily that was after the eligibility period. Guess we're putting Conway on next week's poll.

Default Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of June 2nd, 2014

Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of June 2nd, 2014 http://wp.me/p4kQ6t-xQ


1. Juicy Product (David Starr & JT Dunn)-After 3 straight weeks at #1, the team took a week off to pursue a couple of big singles matches. The FIP & CZW World Tag Team Champions teamed once again and defeated PWX Tag Team Champions Los Ben Dejos on 5/31 at CZW in Dayton, OH. They have won 7 straight matches as a team as they have balanced great singles victories with (perhaps) even more impressive tag team victories in 2014. Tied for #3 in the online poll.

2. The Hooligans (Devin & Mason Cutter)-The PGP, Zero-1 USA, and JCW Tag Team Champions get the #2 ranking for the 3rd week straight as they defeated Yabo the Clown and Yorick the Jester at PGP to retain the PGP Tag Team Titles and then beat Isaias Velasquez & Danny Cannon on 6/1 at VWAA to retain the JCW Tag Team Titles. Their dominance has been inarguable in 2014 as they still sit at #1 in the Tag Team Top 50 as the year continues to move along. #2 in the online poll.

3. BULLET CLUB (Karl Anderson & Doc Gallows)-The former #1 in the Tag Team Top 5 and the IWGP Tag Team Champions teamed with Tama Tonga, Bad Luck Fale, & Yujiro Takahashi to defeat CHAOS on 5/30, they defeated Captain New Japan & Hiroshi Tanahashi on 5/31, and again defeated Captain New Japan & Hiroshi Tanahashi on 6/1 to go 3-0 on the weekend. They have won 5 straight matches as a team. Tied for #3 in the online poll.

4. Team Single (Rampage Brown & T-Bone)-The PCW Tag Team Champions defeated reDRagon to retain the titles on 5/30 at PCW, they teamed with Joey Hayes to win a Four on Three Handicap Match vs. Al Snow, Danny Hope, Juventud Guerrera, and Mad Man Manson on 5/31 at PCW, and then defeated Legion of Boom (Chris Masters & Dave Rayne) to retain the titles on 5/31 at PCW as well. They were 3-0 on the weekend and have won 15 of their last 16 matches. They have been absolutely unstoppable in the UK this year. #5 in the online poll.

5. The Skywalkers (Robbie Walker & Aaron Sky)-They finally break into the Top 5! The OVW Southern Tag Team Champions defeated Stuart Miles and Jade Dawson at the OVW TV Taping on 5/28 to once again qualify for the poll, but it was the fact that they are the winners of 11 of their last 12 matches (the only non-win being a no contest vs. Dylan Bostic, Roberto De Luna, and Marcus Anthony on 4/16) that got them into the top 5. With them exclusively teaming in OVW, they have not gotten to take their show on tour, but they have dominated their promotion thus far.

People’s Champs. Roscoe Eat Lisa (Mikey McFinnigan & Zakk Sawyers)-Defeated Team B@M! at SNPW on 5/31 and gained 47 votes to win the online voting competition.

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

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



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.

Default 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




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.

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

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



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.

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

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



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.

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

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




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.

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

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



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.

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

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



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.
