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

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



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.

Default 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



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.

Default 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



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.

Default Indy Power Rankings for the Week of July 21st, 2014

Indy Power Rankings for the Week of July 21st, 2014
http://wp.me/p4kQ6t-KI



1. Chase Owens (@nwachaseowens)-The former People’s Champ now has a #1 to add to his collection of accolades. It was an INSANE week for the NWA Junior Heavyweight Champion. He travelled up to Canada and came away with a record of 9-0…in ONE week. This is certainly not his first ranking, but it is his first time at #1. He’s having a fantastic year, picking up victories where ever he goes, most often at NWA Smoky Mountain. When we updated the IPR 100 last week, Chase was sitting at #35. A #1 ranking will certainly help his standing. #3 in the online poll with 44 votes.

2. Michael Elgin (@ROHMichaelElgin)-Being the ROH World Champion has a lot of advantages, ESPECIALLY when you go 2-0 with two successful title defenses in one weekend. The Unbreakable World Champion went into Cincinnati and Dearborn as champ and left as champ after laying waste to Roderick Strong and Kyle O’Reilly. It was his 3rd successful title defense in the last 2 weeks and was just enough to slot him at #2 this week, despite heavy competition. While he is still AIW Absolute and ½ of the AAW Tag Champs, his title collecting days may be over, but his ROH World Title run is just beginning. Tied for #6 in the online poll.

3. Ricochet (@KingRicochet)-The DGUSA Open the Freedom Gate Champion rarely goes more than a week or two without being ranked in the Top 10 this year. Last week he was #5 and this week he moves up two spots to #3. First he picked up a victory on 7/17 and then scored a win on Dragon Gate’s biggest stage as he teamed with Masato Yoshino to defeat Matt Sydal and CIMA in a Dream Match. The only thing holding him back from a historic 8th #1 right now is his lack of singles victories the last few weeks. With his success rate lately, one would think that will come in the very near future.

4. Kongo Kong/Osyris (@RealKongoKong)-Last week’s #1 did absolutely nothing to halt his own momentum, but with very, very strong competition this week, he dropped a few spots. He did, however, score another strong victory as he defeated Shane Mercer to retain his IWA Mid-South World Title on 7/17. Mercer was able to throw the big man around, but in the end it was Kong who came out on top. The dominant monster has been having a fantastic June and July and it looks like nothing, not even the power of a challenger like Mercer, is going to stand in his way from another #1 ranking. #5 in the online poll with 22 votes.

5. Rhett Giddins-The Florida Heavyweight Champion apparently knows nothing but winning. Once again he did just that as he defeated JD Amazing on 7/19 to add another title to his collection as he won the vacant USCW Heavyweight Title. Despite his winning ways, he continues to slip a bit in the Top 10, but that was true of several people this week due to all of the big shows and competition all over the Top 10. He’s still chasing that elusive #1, but if he keeps winning, it’s going to be impossible for him to miss out on it. Most voters feel that if he can knock off a big name in the near future, that could be what it takes to lock him in at #1.

6. Chasyn Rance (@ChasynRance)-The FIP Florida Hertiage Champion and USCW Cruiserweight Champion scored not one but two wins on 7/19 as he teamed with Brittany (from TNA) and defeated Joey Mayberry & Ashleigh Lynn Ford and then defeated DJ Chino to retain his USCW Cruiserweight Title later in the night. He jumps up 4 spots after yet another solid week, whether some of his detractors like it or not. Much like Rhett Giddins, a couple more big wins and you may be seeing him at the very top of the Top 10. Tied for #10 in the online poll.

7. Kevin Steen (@FightSteenFight)-Maybe an emotional pick on the part of the voters, but at the end of the day, he still had a successful weekend as he defeated Steve Corino in his final match at ROH on 7/19 and then knocked off Tyson Dux at Smash Wrestling on 7/20. His only loss was vs. Silas Young at ROH in a No DQ match on 7/18. He finishes ranked #7 after having been ranked 5 times at #1 (a record at that time) last year. Thanks Steen Thanks, indeed. Tied for #10 in the online poll.

8. Drolix (@Drolix1)-While he may have had a poor showing in the online poll, the official voters came to his defense as they understood the prestige of the MCW Shane Shamrock Memorial Cup. This year he was the winner after defeating Shaun Cannon and then defeating Bolt Brady, Bo Nekoda, Bu Ku Dao, Papadon, and Shane Strickland in the Finals. This is his first ranking and if the 2014 Shane Shamrock Memorial Cup was any indication, it won’t be his last.

9. Mickie Knuckles (@MickieLKnuckles)-She’s back! “The Walking Episode of Cops” returns to the Indy Power Rankings after a leg injury sidelined her from active competition. On May 12th, 2014, she was ranked #3. This week, she’s back in the pack, which considering where she came from is damn impressive. On 7/17 she defeated Mistress Burgandi in a hard-hitting war at IWA Mid-South and then retained her UIW Women’s Title on 7/19 with a victory vs. Pandora. With her back in the ring again, expect to start seeing her name pop up more and more as we head towards the end of the year. Tied for #8 in the online poll.

10. Michael Monsoon (@MichaelMonsoon)-Monsoon drowned the competition this week! OK, bad pun. In all seriousness, first he picked up a HUGE win in the Lou Thesz Cup Battle Royal on 7/18 at IPW and then he followed that up with another impressive victory. He absolutely DOMINATED the online voting competition from start to finish to become this week’s People’s Champ with 151 votes. At the start of the day he just wanted to prove he belonged, but by the end, he proved that he can be a major player given the right circumstances. We hope to see more of him in the near future.

Honorable Mention-Brian Cage-FSP Champion defeated Chris Masters on 7/18 to retain the title and came just a vote or two away from cracking the Top 10.

Default Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of July 21st, 2014

Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of July 21st, 2014
http://wp.me/p4kQ6t-KP



1. reDRagon (Kyle O’Reilly @ROHOReilly & Bobby Fish @TheBobbyFish)-It’s been long overdue, but the ROH World Tag Team Champions finally got their first #1 ranking as a team. First, they defeated the makeshift team of Rocky Romero & Tommaso Ciampa on 7/18 to retain the titles and then they followed that up on 7/19 by defeating The Monster Mafia. It’s clear that the voters were looking for some consistency out of one of the best tag teams in the world and a weekend where they had 2 big victories to run their win streak to 6 was exactly what the doctor ordered. The 3 time ROH World Tag Team Champions now have a #1 ranking to add to their impressive list of accolades…now let’s see if they can do it again and keep the momentum going. #5 in the online poll.

2. The Hooligans (Devin & Mason Cutter @BeardedBullys)-When you do this write-up, you have to try to find new adjectives to make it interesting, but The Cutter Brothers have been ranked so many times that we’re starting to run out of ways to describe what they’re doing this year. They have consistently been in the Top 5 and this week was no different after they won a big 4 way at IWA Mid-South vs. Dale Patricks & Johnny Rotten Sixx, Gary Jay & The American Viking, and Josh Crane & Tripp Cassidy on 7/17. Their record is an impressive 7-2 over the last 4 weeks. Very few teams team as often as these two and very few win as often. Their debuts at DREAMWAVE and AAW the last 2 weeks were a welcome surprise. Look for more big things throughout 2014.

3. Bad Influence (Christopher Daniels & Kazarian)-Surprisingly, this is the former TNA World Tag Team Champions’ first time cracking the Top 5. Unfortunately for them, with their name value, they’re stuck in big-time matches and have come up on the losing end until ROH over the weekend. They scored two big victories after defeating Adam Cole & Jay Lethal on 7/18 and then followed that up with a #1 Contendership win in a 4 Way vs. War Machine, The Briscoes, and The Decade. Now that they’re getting out all over the place on the indies, you can expect to see them popping up in the Top 5 more and more.

4. The Throwbacks (Dasher Hatfield @MrHatfield4 & Mark Angelosetti @MarkAngelosetti)-This CHIKARA tag team had arguably the biggest weekend of any other team with their victory over The Pieces of Hate to win the CHIKARA Campeonatos de Parejas. Unfortunately for them, that win was slightly overshadowed (for our purposes) by the loss vs. The Flood and Die Bruderschaft des Kreuzes on 7/19. They had a chance for a 3rd #1 ranking, but the loss ultimately cost them a chance at the #1, but their victory the next day was so huge that it was impossible to deny them from the Top 5. Despite the loss, they have still won 11 of their last 12 matches.

5. Black Wall Street (Napalm Bomb & Solo)-The MCW Tag Team Champions have come VERY close to reaching the Top 5 several times, but they finally breakthrough this week after defeating Adam Flash & Ronnie Zukko on 7/19 to retain their titles. That was their 7th straight win as a team and now that they’ve finally gotten into the Top 5, the sky’s the limit for this team. If they keep winning, it’s likely they’ll keep getting ranked.

People’s Champs. England’s Calling (Joel Redman @NXTOliverGrey & Martin Stone)-The RPW British Tag Team Champions got on the poll by defeating The Kartel (former People’s Champs) to retain the titles on 7/20, which was their 2nd straight win. The poll itself was a WAR between Music City Wrecking Crew, Soul Shooters, and England’s Calling, but when it was all said and done, the UK prevailed once again for the 2nd straight week after 135 votes were cast for this impressive team.

Default Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of August 4th, 2014

Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of August 4th, 2014 http://wp.me/p4kQ6t-Pr



1. OI4K (Dave & Jake Crist)-Call them The Ring Rydas, call them Irish Airborne, or their most well-known name now “Ohio is for Killers” but just remember how good of a tag team they are. Over the weekend they ended the long reign of Aaron Williams & Ron Mathis at D1W to add some new gold to their collection. They are now the JCW and D1W Tag Team Champions and the official voters really came out to support them this week. This is their 2nd #1 ranking, a feat that has not been accomplished by very many teams. #2 in the online poll with 27 votes.

2. AC/DC (Arik Cannon & Darin Corbin)-Hard to believe that this is the first ranking for the DREAMWAVE Tag Team Champions. They’ve had some close calls where they almost got in, but they finally broke through this week after defeating The Hooligans. Don’t forget the importance of that victory as The Hooligans are currently #1 in the Tag Team Top 50 for 2014. That big win shot them all the way up the ranks this week as several official voters even had them at #1. If they can keep that momentum going, a #1 ranking is inevitable.

3. Helter Skelter (Alex Castle & Markus Crane)-Much like AC/DC, surprisingly, this is their first time in the Tag Team Top 5. They’ve come close on more than one occasion, but this week was the time when they finally got in. After a win vs. The Young Bucks recently, they had all the momentum on their side as they defeated The Devastation Corporation on 8/2 to run their win streak to 3 straight, having won 4 of their last 5 matches. With wins over 2 former #1 Tag Teams (Team Lucha/Los Ben Dejos and The Best Friends) during that span, this ranking was long overdue.

4. London Riots (Rob Lynch & James Davis)-The former #1 and former People’s Champs jump back into the top 5 after defeating D&D Security on 8/3 to retain the titles in a “Riots Rules” Match. In recent weeks they hadn’t been quite as dominant as they had been over the last few months, but perhaps that win combined with this ranking could be the type of thing that could get them back on a roll. They have proven to be more consistently successful than any tag team in the UK this year. Time will tell if that will continue.

5. Roscoe Eat Lisa (Mikey McFinnegan & Zakk Sawyers)-They are now TWO time People’s Champs after winning the online voting competition this week for a 2nd time with 44 votes. What got them into that position was their victory over The Viking War Party for the SNPW Tag Team Titles. This is their first venture into the Tag Team Top 5, but the way things are going for them, it’s unlikely it will be their last.

Honorable Mention. Beautiful Bald Besties (Michael Stevens & Zac Edwards)-The NEW UIW Tag Team Champions came just a vote or two away from cracking the Tag Team Top 5, but what ultimately cost them was the lack of votes in the online voting competition. Those votes count!

Default Indy Power Rankings for the Week of August 4th, 2014

Indy Power Rankings for the Week of August 4th, 2014 http://indypowerrankingsipr.wordpres...gust-4th-2014/



1. Chase Owens – A slow week considering what his record has been over the past few weeks but the current NWA Junior Heavyweight Champion picked up his 2 biggest wins over the week defeating Papadon & Rhett Titus. A huge past 3 weeks as Owens dominates the #1 spot… will it continue next week?

2. Jesse Amato – A huge Sunday night for Jesse F’N Amato as he defeated Rob Rage in a Dog Collar Match, Aiden Rayne in a Cactus & Casket Match & finally, PD Flex in a Barbed Wire Deathmatch to win the 2nd Deathproof Tournament! With this being his first ranking ever, what a way to put his name on our radar.

3. Tommaso Ciampa – Last week’s #6 moves up a few spots picking up 3 wins in the Midwest! With an upcoming ROH World Title shot & the momentum the “Sicilian Psychopath” has, could he capture his first #1 soon?

4. Kongo Kong – Current IWA Mid-South Heavyweight Champion stays in the top 10 after his wins over Bolt Brady & Bam Bam Bundy over the week! With him wrestling as constantly as he is, we can only imagine to see this behemoth in the rankings more often.

5. Hudson Envy – AWS Women’s Champion decided she wanted some more gold over the week as she captured the AOS Women’s Title! #10 last week, #5 this week… could this very beautiful yet extremely tough lady be #1 in the future? She’s sure on our radar to do so!

6. Shane Helms – Sugar Shane, the Hurricane…. whichever you wish to call him, has made the IPR poll for the very first time as he dominated at NWA Legends Fest over the weekend picking up 2 wins! If we can see consistency from this former WWE star, he could very well be a #1 in the future.

7. Peter Schwanz – For a dude that doesn’t usually have a week off, it’s not surprising to see him make the poll this week! He had 2 wins over the week including a huge mixed tag win v. Joey Avalon & Melanie Cruise! If he keeps dominating the Midwest, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him rise through the rankings.

8. Matt Cage – Current AAW Heritage Champ decided to go win some more gold as he captured the Dreamwave Championship over the week! 2014 has been exactly what his nickname is… “Money”, for Matt Cage. If he continues this hot streak, this Proud Caucasian could be #1 very soon!

9. Melvin Maximus – Former OVW TV Champion returns to the poll after picking up a HUGE win, becoming the NEW OVW Champion. With the ridiclious streak he’s had in the past, could we be seeing the second coming of it and him at #1 for multiple weeks in the future?

10. Marc Hauss – A bunch of first times on the poll concludes with a man rising up in his area as he picked up one of the biggest wins of his career defeating the former Curt Hawkins, Brian Myers at Upstate Pro Wrestling along with a 3-1 record on top of that. Who’s Hauss? The IPR could be Marc’s Hauss if he continues this hot streak.

Honorable Mention: Carter Mason – #2 in the fan poll this week wasn’t enough for this double champion to make the poll! Current Fringe & PWE Champ defeated 4 other men in a 5 man elimination match at PWE to retain his championship. A big week this weekend could see Mason return to the polls!

Default Indy Power Rankings for the Week of August 11th, 2014

Indy Power Rankings for the Week of August 11th, 2014 http://wp.me/p4kQ6t-Rs


1. Kazuchika Okada (@rainmaker_chaos)-Mark this down as the first time he’s been ranked in the Indy Power Rankings and with his first ranking, comes a #1 ranking. Hard to argue with him at #1 after he won the very prestigious New Japan G1 Climax Tournament, finishing it off this week by defeating Hirooki Goto on 8/4, Lance Archer on 8/6, Minoru Suzuki on 8/8, and then Nakamura on 8/10 in the Finals. While many would debate whether New Japan is in fact an independent promotion, by our standards in 2014, he qualified and took home the top spot. Next year, ALL New Japan will be eligible. For now, it’s only the talent that has wrestled in the U.S., Canada, or Europe in 2014. Tied for #2 in the online poll.

2. Chase Owens (@nwachaseowens)-His streak of #1 rankings has been broken, but it was a struggle to bump him out of the #1 spot this week. After all of his wins in recent weeks, he picked up 2 more including another title in the Mid-Atlantic Junior Heavyweight Title after 2 wins over Sigmon this week. While his streak has been broken, this high ranking just adds more points to his 2014 IPR 100 ranking and can only start pushing him higher and higher up the Top 100 with just a few months to go.

3. Kongo Kong/Osyris (@RealKongoKong)-Much like Chase Owens, this “monsta” refuses to lose. He has been ranked every week for a couple of months now. The IWA World Champion doesn’t just win at IWA, he wins anywhere and everywhere he goes. Strong Style Wrestling was no different over the weekend as he defeated D1W Champion Madman Pondo to prove that he is the true king of the Midwest right now. After that, he defeated John Wayne Murdoch to retain his title on 8/10 in a fantastic contest. If you’re in this beast’s way, it’s time to get the hell out of the way. He’s not stopping any time soon. Tied for #2 in the online poll.

4. Hy Zaya-It’s been a couple of months since the Ninja cracked the Top 10, but he forced his way in after winning the First Annual JC Bailey Memorial Tournament at CCW on 8/9. On top of that, he finished off his weekend with a victory vs. Harry Palmer at IWA Mid-South on 8/10. While he stays mostly in the Midwest, he has had a stellar 2014, racking up wins and titles where ever he goes. Time will tell if he can keep this pace up as he has been competing almost every weekend for several months now.

5. Kay Lee Ray (@Kay_Lee_Ray)-Another first-timer to the IPR Top 10 jumps in with both feet after an outstanding weekend where she beat Martin Kirby for the SWE Speed King Title on 8/9. That same day she defeated Kris Travis by DQ and then finished off the weekend on 8/10, retaining the title vs. Robbie X, Jimmy Havoc, & Zak Northern. It was a strong 3-0 weekend for her and a great start for her to possibly start climbing up the rankings in the future. We hope to see more to come from this rising star! #8 in the online poll.

6. BJ Whitmer (@bj_whitmer)-The IWA East Coast Champion had a chance at a 3-0 weekend but was unable to make the AIW show on 8/8 and thus ended up going 2-0 instead. On 8/9 he teamed with Jimmy Jacobs to defeat Caprice Coleman and Takaaki Watanabe and then “Mr. IWA” went to IWA Mid-South on 8/10 where he won a #1 Contender’s Match, defeating Ace Perry, Gary Jay, Reed Bentley, and Shane Mercer. He has the IWA World Title in his sights, but standing in his way will be the monstrous Kongo Kong!

7. Michael Elgin (@ROHMichaelElgin)-One up and one down for the ROH World Champion as it was kind of a battle of champions as it was Elgin, the ROH and AIW Absolute Champ taking on PWX and WrestleForce Champ Cedric Alexander on 8/9. In the end, “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin came out on top and got ranked yet again. While he’s not working the breakneck schedule he was at the beginning of the year, he is defending the ROH World Title every chance he gets. He’s currently sitting at #2 in the IPR 100 after coming in at #1 last year. He has a few months left to sneak back into that #1 spot!

8. Zack Sabre Jr. (@zacksabrejr)-Here’s another name that hasn’t been seen in the IPR Top 10 for several months, but after some success at NOAH over the weekend he returned with a bang. First he defeated Hajime Ohara and Jinzo on 8/8 in a 3 Way at NOAH and then won a 13 Man Battle Royal the same day. It was that combined with him winning 5 of his last 6 matches that helped get him ranked this week. It will be interesting to see how he fares in PWG’s Battle of Los Angeles coming up.

9. Drew Galloway (@TheDrewMcIntyre)-What a return to the indies it was for the former Drew McIntyre as on his first night at EVOLVE he knocked off Chris Hero to win the title there. He then went on to defeat Anthony Nese to retain the title, before finally losing to Ricochet the last day, which isn’t exactly a bad loss considering Ricochet is sitting in the driver’s seat for #1 in the IPR 100 this year. This former WWE star is making big waves and after his huge weekend at EVOLVE it will be enjoyable to see what he can do from here. #9 in the online poll.

10. Beautiful Beaa (@BeaaMoscrip)-The first ever SCPW Canadian Hybrid Champion proved once again how important the fan poll was this week as she squeaked into the Top 10. She was tied with John Greed at the end of the day, but her higher vote total in the fan poll pushed her above Greed for the #10 spot this week. It was a solid 2-0 week for the new champ and if she can continue this momentum, it won’t be her last time cracking the Top 10. #5 in the online poll.

People’s Champ. Bill Black/Will White (@BBlackWrestling)-One of the most unique characters in all of Canada retained his Squared Circle Live Premier Title on 8/10 vs. Ashley Sixx and then took that success to the online vote where he came from behind to secure the People’s Champ award this week.


Honorable Mention. John Greed (@greedwrestling)-He had a big 3-0 week, but fell just short of making the Top 10 as he didn’t quite have enough fan votes to push him past Beautiful Beaa this week. Strong showing by the Canadian talent this week, overall.
