Default Indy Power Rankings

Since January of 2013, we have been ranking the very best independent wrestlers on a weekly basis. The concept spawned from former ESPN.com writer, Jon Robinson, who ranked the best WWE wrestlers from 1 to 10 on ESPN.com every week. Jon Robinson is no longer there, but he has given us the blessing to carry on with our project as an homage to his fine work. In fact, he was one of our very first followers on Twitter. Our goal is to not only to educate everyone on some upcoming names in smaller promotions, but to rank the best independent wrestlers from the bigger promotions.

This is a KAYFABE list, meaning it is not centered around our opinion of who the best worker is on a weekly basis, but rather, more sports-oriented in the thought process of wins being the most important factor in getting ranked. Many various independent wrestling writers spend their time debating who the “best in the world” is while we simply seek to prove it via wins and losses.

In order to be ranked and to avoid personal biases, we have a group of 7 voters from the U.S. and Canada (and a collective fan poll) who have 3 main criteria for voting (in a similar manner to ESPN.com’s NFL Power Rankings):
1.Win-loss record for the week & overall
2.Strength of opponents for the week
3.Overall public perception of the wrestler in question (i.e. Kevin Steen has a stronger following than a regional independent wrestler who most people have never heard of)

Only wrestlers who did not wrestle for the WWE or TNA during the voting period are qualified. This means that OVW wrestlers who are contracted to TNA are eligible, providing that they did not wrestle for TNA during the voting period. NXT wrestlers are not eligible for this list. Any wrestler who does NOT wrestle during the week are not eligible for that week’s list. This is a list of wrestlers who primarily compete in the U.S. or they can qualify by going on an extended tour of the U.S. (i.e. if Jushin ‘Thunder Liger goes 3-0 on American soil).

As with most things this is not an exact science, but simply the opinions of many very dedicated independent wrestling fans who base their votes on data compiled in various databases throughout the weeks, months, and years of shows.

With all that being said, please sit back and enjoy this week’s rankings and if you have any questions/comments, please feel free to tweet us @IndyPowerRankin, visit our Facebook page at Facebook.com/IndyPowerRankings, or email us at IndyPowerRankings@Gmail.com.

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

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


1. Ricochet-“You can only keep a King down for so long.” Wise words from one of our official voters as the 2013 Dragon Gate King of Gate dominated another weekend and could not be denied this week by the voters. With a record of 10-0 on this Dragon Gate tour and a record of 3-0 this weekend, “The Future of Flight” proved that he was the present by getting his first #1 ranking of 2014. #3 in the online poll.

2. JT Dunn-Another week and another pair of victories for the NEFW U.S. Champion. First he teamed with girlfriend Shelly Martinez to score a win at RPW. The next night he put his title on the line and defeated AJ Cruise, Anthony Gangone, and David Cole to retain. This is his 2nd straight week at #2. When will “The Juice” grab his first #1 ranking? The fan support is certainly there. #4 in the online poll.

3. Johnny Gargano-The DGUSA Open the Freedom Gate Champion had perhaps the most impressive weekend by going 2-0 with successful title defenses vs. Trent ? & Roderick Strong. Gargano is a former 5 time #1 in the Indy Power Rankings and after a weekend like that, he’s looking to return to that spot in the very near future. #5 in the online poll.

4. Christian Rose-The DREAMWAVE Champion extended his 3 week record to 7-0 after a victory over Mason Beck at Funky Munky Wrestling. While he has yet to lose since being ranked #1, with everyone else having multiple matches this week, “The Bitter Lunatic” was a casualty of a busy weekend. He’ll have chances to get back into the #1 spot in the very near future. #10 in the online poll.

5. Caleb Konley-The former #1 in the Indy Power Rankings swept the weekend once again as he picked up to big wins at DGUSA. First he defeated international exotic star Yosuke Santa Maria. He followed that up with a submission victory over Tim Donst to polish off the weekend with a 2-0 record. The PWX and WrestleForce Champion has yet to reach #1 this year, but he is continuing to put together an impressive record. Certainly a #1 ranking can’t be far off. Did not make the Top 10 in the online poll.

6. Michael Elgin-Hard to believe that “Unbreakable” would drop 2 spots after an unblemished weekend, but this wasn’t your typical weekend. With so many people going 2-0, Elgin going 1-0-1 may have hurt his status this week. A victory over Raymond Rowe (a former #1) was very impressive, but the Time Limit Draw vs. AJ Styles probably influenced voters slightly. The AIW Absolute Champion is as active as anyone in the Top 10 and you can expect him to continue to be seen in the Indy Power Rankings for the rest of 2014. #7 in the online poll.

7. Tommaso Ciampa-The ROH TV Champion has been noticeably absent from the Top 10 for quite some time, but this week, he came through with two very impressive victories as he retained his title vs. Hanson on 2/21 and Jay Lethal on 2/22. “The Sicilian Psychopath” is on a path of destruction right now. He has yet to reach #1 and one would think that goal is a very distinct possibility from becoming a reality, especially with title defenses in the UK scheduled in the near future. Did not make the Top 10 in the online poll.

8. Jake Dirden-The Dynamo Pro Champion continued his consistent success over the weekend (and at DPW on 2/18) as he came away with 2 victories this week once again. He remains at #8 after proving yet again that he DOES NOT LOSE. Look it up. A No Contest? Maybe. A loss? Rare and almost unheard of. Did not make the Top 10 in the online poll.

9. Kevin Steen-After a slow start to 2014, the former ROH World Champion picked up the pace and now gets into the Indy Power Rankings after two victories over the weekend. First he defeated Cliff Compton in a Philadelphia Street Fight on 2/21. He then scored a DQ victory over Homicide on 2/22. Steen, a former 5 time #1, has some work to do if he wants to get back to the status he enjoyed in early 2013. #8 in the online poll.

10. Hercules Gomez-Not familiar with this name? Time to get familiar. He now OWNS the state of Florida after defeating Lince Dorado for the SCW Florida Heavyweight Title on 2/21 at BELIEVE 66 and then following that up on 2/22 at RIOT Pro Wrestling with a victory over RIOT Heavyweight Champion Rhett Giddins to become the undisputed Heavyweight Champion of Florida. He crushed the competition in the online poll with an easy #1 ranking by the fans.

1st Honorable Mention. James Anthony-The AIWF Cruiserweight Champion made another successful title defense vs. Chris Lea. 2nd in the online poll.

2nd Honorable Mention. Marcus Anthony-OVW Heavyweight Champ was 2-0 this week with wins vs. Robbie Walker and Eddie Diamond. Did not make the Top 10 in the online poll.

Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of February 24th, 2014

1. The Decade (Roderick Strong, BJ Whitmer, and Jimmy Jacobs)-Since forming in ROH, they have been flawless in all forms of tag team matches. BJ Whitmer & Jimmy Jacobs are 2-0 as a team since reforming as a tag team and now, with Roderick Strong thrown into the equation, they are 2-0 in 6 man tag team competition, meaning they are 4-0 as a team, overall. This weekend they defeated Adam Page, Cedric Alexander, & Mark Briscoe, before moving on the next day to beat Adrenaline RUSH & Andrew Everett. Certainly some gold might be in this group’s near future. Unranked in the online poll.

2. reDRagon (Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish)-It’s crazy to think about the fact that this is the first ranking of 2014 for the ROH World Tag Team Champions, but it’s true. They were not very successful this year until this past weekend at ROH where they defeated both Adrenaline RUSH and the team of Brutal Burgers to go 2-0 on the weekend. They were favored to be in the Top 5 of the Tag Team Top 50 going into 2014. They’ve finally got some momentum to make that a reality. #4 in the online poll.

3. Black Hand Warriors (Michael Magnuson & David Delorean)-This week the Dynamo Pro Tag Team Champions defeated Jack Gamble & Jon Webb to retain their titles. They also hold the WLW Tag Team Titles, making them one of the very few teams in the U.S. to hold multiple promotions’ tag team titles. They have been as dominant as any team in the last couple of months. It will be interesting if they can continue this success throughout 2014. #3 in the online poll.

4. The Hooligans (Devin & Mason Cutter)-Another team that was favored to be in the Top 5 of the Tag Team Top 50 going into 2014 stumbled out of the gate when the year began, but now they’re starting to find their footing. Over the weekend they retained their PGP Tag Team Titles in a brutal war vs. Zero Gravity in a double dog collar match. With yet another battle coming up vs. Team IOU, time will tell if they can continue their climb up the rankings. #1 in the online poll.

5. Team IOU (Kerry Awful & Nick Iggy)-The NWA SAW Tag Team Champions retained their titles in their first defense vs. Shock N’ Awe on 2/21. They looked to add more gold to their collection as they took on Da Soul Touchaz the next night at Resistance Pro, but came up short in their bid to be double champions. They were #2 last week and despite the loss, the fans have spoken and they have said, quite frankly, “you just can’t keep a boy and his dog down.” #2 in the online poll.


1st Honorable Mention. Underdogs (John Greed & Sebastian Suave)-Defeated the Super Smash Brothers by disqualification at Smash Wrestling on 2/23. Unranked in the online poll.

2nd Honorable Mention. Arrogant Basterds (Ric Ellis & Devin Sparks)-NEW So Cal Pro Tag Team Champions after defeating Anchors Away for the titles on 2/21.

Default Re: Indy Power Rankings

Indy Power Rankings for the Week of March 3rd, 2014

1. Ricochet-“I will never underestimate him again.” The words of one voter reflected thoughts of the many. Several people were sceptical about whether Ricochet could defeat Masato Yoshino for the Dragon Gate Open the Dream Gate Title on 3/2, but that’s exactly what he did. Not only that, he also won a 6 Man Tag Team Match at Dragon Gate on 3/1. With those 2 victories, Ricochet is a STAGGERING 12-0 on this tour of Dragon Gate in Japan. This is his 2nd straight #1 ranking. Next up: A title defense vs. Uhaa Nation. #2 in the online poll.

2. Johnny Gargano- As if over 800 days as the DGUSA Open the Freedom Gate Champion wasn’t enough, the former 5 time #1 in the Indy Power Rankings picked up impressive tag team victories at SLA and DREAMWAVE to move on to the Misfortune Lethal Lottery Battle Royal. Gargano, a relative newcomer to the promotion, came out on top with a huge win. He now has any match he wants in his pocket. He’ll have his chance to prove he should be #1 in April when he defends vs. Ricochet. #6 in the online poll.

3. JT Dunn-The #2 from the last 2 weeks drops just one spot due to very heavy competition this week. His win vs. Ricky Reyes at XWA on 3/1 improved his 3 week record to 6-0. The NEFW U.S. Champion has been on fire lately. In the not too distant future, he’ll get to prove he has what it takes to be the clear cut #1 when he takes on Chris Hero for Beyond Wrestling. #7 in the online poll.

4. Chris Masters-Whether he’s called “Chris Masters” or by his real name, there isn’t much in a name, because he absolutely DOMINATED the weekend. Record-wise, his weekend was better than almost anyone has been able to accomplish this year. He won 4 big matches at Preston City UK to win the Road to Glory Tournament as he ran through Cyanide, Joey Hayes, Chris Hero, and Dave Mastiff. He then went to Southside Wrestling in the UK where he defeated T-Bone to finish off the weekend. #5 in the online poll.

5. Michael Elgin-The Unbreakable AIW Absolute Champion has been hovering around the middle of the Indy Power Rankings for the last several weeks and this week was no different. Not counting the Misfortune Lethal Lottery Battle Royal at DREAMWAVE, Elgin was 2-0 this weekend with tag team victories vs. Kung Fu Manchu at AAW along with Alex Castle & Arik Cannon at DREAMWAVE. It was another dominant weekend as he once again went “Elgin Mode” on the competition. #8 in the online poll.

6. Caleb Konley-The PWX and WrestleForce Champion has been incredibly dominant lately. After two more wins in Quincy, MA and Oregon, no one can claim that he’s just a regional champion anymore. Konley has become a top national star. The former #1 in the Indy Power Rankings continues to rack up rankings, but the question remains, when will Konley grab the #1 once again? Unranked in the online poll.

7. Marcus Anthony-The OVW Heavyweight Champion gets back into the rankings after 2 more wins this week, including a HUGE successful title defense vs. former #1 Jamin Olivencia on 3/1. With 4 wins over the last 2 weeks and countless wins over the last few months, this beast of a man continues to show why he’s such a feared champion. Unranked in the online poll.

8. James Anthony-The AIWF Cruiserweight Champion has been tearing it up in his promotion as of late. He has now won 4 straight after retaining the title vs. Erik Ellis once again over the weekend. What is surprising is his amount of fan support. For perhaps a smaller name that many people aren’t familiar with, the voters came out in bunches to support him. With over 100 votes, he is the People’s Champ this week as he edged out Ricochet for #1 in the online fan poll.

9. Melvin Maximus-The OVW TV Champion has been as impressive as anyone in the Top 10 lately. He racks up wins every single week and this week was no different. Much like the OVW Heavyweight Champion, he has now won 4 matches over the last 2 weeks after going 2-0 this week once again. Since the Indy Power Rankings began in January 2013, he’d have to be put right up there with Randy Royal and Rockstar Spud as GREAT TV Champions. Unranked in the online poll.

10. Aaron Williams-The Rockstar Pro Champion made be hated among the fans in Dayton, OH, but there’s definitely a lot of respect there for the man who knocked off former 2 time #1 in the Indy Power Rankings, Benjamin Kimera, to begin this epic journey as champ.

1st Honorable Mention. Marcellus King-Winner of a big 16 Man Battle Royal at CWF Mid-Atlantic, making a successful return. #3 in the online poll.

2nd Honorable Mention. Chris Cooper-The ESW Heavyweight Champion defeated Gabreal Saint to defeat his title at “Reckoning Day” on 3/1. 4th in the online poll.

Since you've put it in your post, maybe you should change the title to American Indy Power Rankings.

Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of March 3rd, 2014

1. The Hooligans (Devin & Mason Cutter)-After a # 4 ranking last week and a #1 ranking in the online poll, these multiple promotion tag team champions were 2-0 on the weekend with wins vs. Dan Walsh & Jeremy Wyatt and ACH & Nick Jackson on 2/28 and 3/1 at St. Louis Anarchy’s “Gateway to Anarchy” shows. While their match vs. The Young Bucks did not take place due to Matt Jackson’s injury, a taste of one of the Young Bucks may just be enough to get a future shot at them down the line. Next up: A huge match vs. rivals, Team IOU at IWA Mid-South on 3/9. #2 in the online poll.

2. Killbillies (Aric Andrews & Evan Banks)-This impressive tag team had perhaps the best weekend of anyone this entire year…and yet ended up at #2. It was a bitter sweet weekend at CWF Mid-Atlantic for this tag team as they racked up 4 wins to win the PWI Tag Team Tournament with victories vs. Manny Garcia & Ryan Zane, Ray Kandrack & Zane Dawson, Rage and The Machine, and Chet Sterling & Trevor Lee. Had they been ranked last week, it’s likely they would have been #1 this week, but The Hooligans’ overall body of work in 2014 slightly edged them out. Regardless of that fact, expect to see this team ranked again in the future. #1 in the online poll with over 100 votes and “The People’s Champions” for this week.

3. Lucha Sisters (Mia Yim & Leva Bates)-On any other week, the new SHINE Tag Team Champions would have been #1, but this week was a week filled with difficult competition up and down the Top 5. With victories vs. The Kimber Bombs, The SNS Express, and Made in Sin, this ladies’ tag team (who have no problem beating up men as well) proved their worth this week. #4 in the online poll.

4. Dylan Bostic & Roberto De Luna-This somewhat new tag team has been VERY impressive lately and they proved that they’re here to stay when they teamed up to defeat former 2 time #1’s in Michael Hayes & Mohamad Ali Vaez for the OVW Southern Tag Team Titles this week. They were 2-0 this week to improve to 5-0 as a team. #5 in the online poll.

5. Team Single (T-Bone & Rampage Brown)-The PCW UK Tag Team Champions get in on the strength of a 3-0 weekend with tremendous victories vs. AJ Styles & Lionheart, Battle Squad Awesome, and Danny Hope & Mad Man Manson. Much like some of the others, on any other week they would have been #1, but again, heavy competition held them back a bit. Regardless, they are the first tag team from the UK to get ranked, proving that the talent overseas is just as deserving of mention as any in the States. #7 in the online poll.


1st Honorable Mention. Men of the Year (Michael Elgin & Ethan Page)-AAW Tag Team Champions defeated Kung Fu Manchu (Louis Lyndon & Marion Fontaine) and still undefeated as a team. #3 in the online poll.

2nd Honorable Mention. OI4K (Jake & Dave Crist)-Defeated former #1’s Los Ben Dejos to run their win streak to 3 straight. #6 in the online poll.

Just missing out/Others Receiving Votes:
Logan Brothers (#9 in the online poll)
Ballard Brothers (#8 in the online poll)

They were #2 last week and despite the loss, the fans have spoken and they have said, quite frankly, “you just can’t keep a boy and his dog down.” #2 in the online poll.


Too bad they disappeared off the list the following week though lol.
