Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of October 20th, 2014

IMG_0996.JPG

Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of October 20th, 2014

​​​
1. Killer Elite Squad (@kelitesquad Davey Boy Smith, Jr. @DBSmithJr & Lance Archer @LanceHoyt)-The NEW NWA World Tag Team Champions took their place at the top of the Tag Team Top 5 this week for the very first time. The prestige of the titles they won and the team they beat (TenKoji) played a helping hand in getting them their first #1. This #1 is actually their first time in the Top 5 this year as they’ve had a hard time collecting gold as both have been focused on other things, but this was their moment of glory and it was well-deserved. Now the question is…how much more can they do before the end of 2014? We’re definitely looking forward to finding out! #3 in the online poll.

2. Country Jacked (Corey Hollis @CoreyHollis & Adam Page @theAdamPage)-The former #1’s finally collected some gold as a team. They did it in VERY impressive fashion as they knocked off 3 of the best teams in all the indies as they beat Los Ben Dejos, The Bravado Bros, and The Worst Case Scenario in a 4 Way to become the NEW PWX Tag Team Champions on 10/19. It was just one more in a string of MANY big wins they’ve had throughout 2014. This ranking most definitely helps their stock in the Tag Team Top 50 and with this ranking and title win will hopefully come successful title defenses. If so, this won’t be the last you hear of this team in the rankings.

3. World’s Cutest Tag Team (Joey Ryan @JoeyRyanOnline & Candice LeRae @CandiceLeRae)-This is actually a somewhat low ranking for the former 2 time #1’s in the Tag Team Top 5, but this was a special week with HEAVY competition. The PWG World Tag Team Champions defeated Johnny Gargano & Chuck Taylor on 10/17 to retain the titles, which on most weeks may have been enough to warrant a #1 ranking, but again, this was a special week. Not to beleaguer this point, but this ranking (like any other) just further helps their spot in the year-end Tag Team Top 50, so it’s certainly something to be proud of in the grand scheme of things.

4. Paul London (@LondonFu) & Brian Kendrick-After not getting ranked all year, the former WWE Tag Team Champions and current ICW Tag Team Champions have now been ranked for 3 weeks straight. Granted, they did drop a couple of spots this week due to their wins only being a DQ win and 6 Man Tag Team win this week, but regardless, they continue to prove that they are still one of the most elite teams in the world. How much longer will this run last? It remains to be seen, but very few teams have the edge on them in experience or time together as a team.

5. Global Green Gangsters (Kellie Skater @ratetank & Tomoka Nakagawa)-It’s been quite some time since we saw the SHIMMER Tag Team Champions in the rankings, but then, that’s because it’s been a long time since they’ve teamed. That being said, their track record as a team cannot be denied and their impressive weekend at SHIMMER with 3 successful title defenses (2 of which were straight up wins) and 5 matches together was enough to get them back into the Tag Team Top 5 this week among other teams who team a bit more frequently. Unfortunately, we’re unlikely to see them back in the Top 5 until the Spring when SHIMMER has another taping, but this was just another accomplishment to add to their vast collection.

People’s Champs. Injustice League (James Barton Rigby @JBRWrestler & Troy Stevens @TheTroyStevens)-The NEW PWA CT Tag Team Champions had an absolute WAR with Team IOU in the online voting competition and the underdogs came out ahead of the former 9 time People’s Champs with 182 votes. Give props to them and the company they represent as PWA has now had THREE different tag teams (who were all champs at the time) that have won the online voting competition.

Indy Power Rankings for the Week of October 20th, 2014

IMG_0989-0.JPG

Indy Power Rankings for the Week of October 20th, 2014

1. Kazuchika Okada (@rainmaker_chaos)-The former IWGP Heavyweight Champion gets his 2nd #1 ranking this week after beating Tetsuya Naito on 10/13 to become the #1 contender to the IWGP Heavyweight Title once again. He was not content to rest on his laurels as he went to the UK and beat Joel Redman on 10/18 at Revolution Pro UK and then defeated Austin Aries (a HUGE win) on 10/19. A 3-0 week and a win over a former TNA and ROH World Champion made him the easy #1 choice this week despite strong competition from a lot of other competitors this week. There were a handful of wrestlers who arguably had a solid shot at #1, but Okada stood tall. Tied for #9 in the online poll.

2. Hiroshi Tanahashi (@tanahashi1_100)-The NEW IWGP Heavyweight Champion gets into the Top 10 for the very first time after winning the title from AJ Styles on 10/13. Had he built on that title win with just one or two more matches, it’s likely he’d be sitting in the #1 spot this week. Granted, he still has a strong argument that he should have been #1 this week, but his one (HUGE) win vs. others with multiple big wins made it a little harder for him to get that elusive #1 spot. That being said, he earned his way in this week and we hope to see what the rest of 2014 brings for one of the best wrestlers in the world.

3. John Wayne Murdoch (@johnmurdoch25)-#1 last week. #3 this week. Not a bad 2 week run for The Dick Murdoch of Death Match Wrestling. He is shaking off the stigma of just being a death match wrestler lately as this week he knocked off Blake Steel in an I Quit Match at PGP on 10/18 and then defeated BJ Whitmer by submission at FWS on 10/19. Two very big wins on top of his #1 ranking last week and the EPW Openweight Champion is on quite the roll right now as he is shooting right up the IPR 100 (no spoilers until 12/29, 12/30, and 12/31 on the IPR 100 Reveal Shows). How much further can Murdoch climb in 2014?

4. Karsten Beck-Still riding the wave of success from his big win in the wXw/CZW/BJW Triangle League a couple of weeks ago, Beck picks up 3 more wins this week as he extends his win streak and gets ranked for the 3rd straight week. He defeated Chris Rush at wXw on 10/18, then beat Tom Prichard the same day, before polishing off the weekend with a victory over Franz Engel at wXw on 10/19. What a meteoric rise it’s been over the last few weeks for one of the best in Germany and after his 3 straight rankings, one of the best in the world?

5. People’s Champ. Tessa Blanchard (@teamTblanchard)-If ever there was proof of what winning the online voting competition can do, it’s this week. Tessa Blanchard had a solid week after a GREAT week last week and that was certainly enough to get her into the Top 10, but what really pushed her up 2-3 spots were the fans getting in and showing their support this week. She won two tag team matches over the weekend to continue her (at least) 5 match winning streak, spanning the last 2 weeks. With this ranking, she is pushing her way up the year-end IPR 100 and is proving that she can be just as dominant as any of the male competitors in the Top 100. #1 in the online poll with 84 votes.

6. Caleb Konley (@CalebKonley)-The former PWX/WrestleForce Champion had a fantastic weekend, especially when you look at his quality of competition and the companies he worked for. On 10/18 he scored an impressive victory over fellow North Carolina native, Trevor Lee at CZW in what was a much-heralded contest and then he followed that up with another HUGE victory over last week’s #1 in the IPR 100 in Michael Elgin at PWX in another highly praised match. Konley hasn’t been consistently in the Top 10 like he was at the start of the year, but he’s still very relevant as he’s winning and winning when it counts now.

7. Jimmy Jacobs (@JimmyJacobsX)-With Jacobs, we had partial results of his CWE tour as we had his results from 10/15. 10/16, and 10/17, but based on those shows alone, he was a legitimate candidate for the Top 10 this week and he was voted in, accordingly. After 3 big wins in singles, he also won a 50-Man Battle Royal, which just helps cement his spot in the Top 10 this week. Depending on what he did on 10/18 and 10/19, he could have been even higher (or lower) depending on the outcome. Regardless, we can only rank on what we know, and what we know is in those 3 appearances for CWE, he was absolutely dominant.

8. Rampage Brown (@RampageBrown)-Despite getting absolutely no support in the online voting this week from the fans, he holds solid at the #8 spot after two more victories as the TCW Champion retained his title on 10/17 and then beat Ryan Griffin on 10/18. He has been racking up win after win over the last couple of weeks and this past weekend was no exception. He’s slowly climbing the Top 10 ladder and all it will take is another solid weekend to get him intro true contention for his first ever #1 ranking.

9. Nicole Matthews (@nmatthewsninja)-Despite controversial means, she is the NEW SHIMMER Champion which earned her a spot in the Top 10 for the very first time this week. On 10/18 she defeated Madison Eagles and then followed that up with a win over (champion at the time) Cheerleader Melissa, Athena, and Madison Eagles in a Fatal Four Way to win the title. The next night she beat Evie to retain the title, but then lost an 8 Woman No DQ Tag Match on 10/19 (though she probably would argue that point as she bailed on her team). It was a fantastic yet shocking weekend for one of the best female wrestlers going today. She has the gold to prove it.

10. Kyle O’Reilly (@ROHOReilly)-The PWG World Champion (and ½ of the ROH World Tag Team Champions) defeated Roderick Strong on 10/17 to retain the PWG Title in one of the biggest matches of the weekend. With a record of 3-1 over the last 2 weeks, it’s hard to argue with O’Reilly’s success. Granted, what kept him from being a little higher was that we were unaware of any other shows for him this weekend, but that PWG World Title carries a lot of weight among the voters and a win over one of the best in the world means a lot.

1st Honorable Mention. Sozio (@Mr_Sozio)-Despite heavy fan support in the online vote, he just misses out on the Top 10, but what no one can take away from him is his newly won CZW World Title. #4 in the online poll with 35 votes.

2nd Honorable Mention. Ron Mathis (@RonMathis13)-He came dangerously close to getting into the Top 10 this week, but much like Sozio, you can’t take away the fact that he beat RICKY MORTON for the ASW Legends Title. #6 in the online poll with 31 votes.
