Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of February 23rd, 2015

 

 

 

Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of February 23rd, 2015  

 

1. Wild Burning/Burning Wild (Jun Akiyama & Takao Omori)-The former #1’s did again this week as the AJPW Tag Team Champions defeated Akebono & Yoshinobu Kanemaru at AJPW on 2/16,then teamed with Keisuke Ishii on 2/17 to beat Evolution (Suwama, Joe Doering and Hikaru Sato),then defeated Evolution (Suwama and Joe Doering) on 2/20 to retain their titles and to go 3-0 for the week. Impressive week for a team who has been as good as anyone in 2015. They are currently battling for the top spot in the IPR Tag Team Top 50 for 2015. Of course, that can quickly change with 10 months to go, but they’re certainly off to a hot start this year.

 

 

 

2. Monster Express (Uhaa Nation & Akira Tozawa)-They were #1 last week, #2 the week before, and had an argument once again to be #1 for a second straight week. They are decisively #2 this week though as they defeated MAD BLANKEY (Cyber Kong and Don Fujii) at Dragon Gate on 2/16, then teamed with Shingo Takagi on 2/21 to defeat Dia.HEARTS (BxBHulk, Kzy and Big R Shimizu) to go 2-0 for the week. They have won 8 straight matches as a team and show no signs of slowing down any time soon. Perhaps the only thing that can halt their momentum would be the much reported jump to WWE by UhaaNation. If/when that takes place, he will be missed in both the Indy Power Rankings and Tag Team Top 5.

 

 

 

3. Country Jacked (Corey Hollis & Adam Page)-One of the biggest wins of the weekend has to go to the PWX Tag Team Champions as they defeated both the Young Bucks and Worst Case Scenario to retain their titles on 2/22. With 4 straight wins under their belt, this tag team has been dominating PWX as of late. Now that both members of the tag team appear to be back and healthy again, look to see them more frequently in the Tag Team Top 5 as they apparently have some imminent challenges to throw out according to Brian Kanabroski on the 2/24 edition of The Carolina Corner on IPR Live (link below).

 

 

 

4. OI4K (Jake & Dave Crist)-They slide in right underneath Country Jacked after defeating The Young Bucks to retain the CZW World Tag Team Titles on 2/21. It was a hard week of voting, but you had to give the nod to Country Jacked slightly over OI4K for beating 2 teams, instead of one in a 3 Way. That being said, beating The Young Bucks in any form of match is not easy, but one of the best tag teams in the world did just that. With wins in 8 of their last 9 matches, this tag team is STILL a force to be reckoned with. If this really is Dave Crist’s last year in wrestling as he has made mention, he’s certainly going out with a bang.

 

 

 

5. The Forgotten (BJ Whitmer & Jimmy Jacobs)-The AIW Tag Team Champions find their way back into the Tag Team Top 5 after a bit of a hiatus after defeating The Batiri, The Beaver Boys, & Cheech & Colin Delaney to retain the titles on 2/20. They have now won 3 of their last 4 matches and with them now starting an alliance in IWA Mid-South (who runs weekly shows) this could lead to a lot more big rankings for one of the most seasoned tag teams in the world. Former ROH World Tag Team Champions, current AIW Tag Team Champions…what’s next?

 

 

Honorable Mention. Madman Pondo & Crazy Mary Dobson-This is as about as close as a team can get to missing out on the actual Tag Team Top 5, but unfortunately with all the heavy competition this week, Mary and Pondo just missed out after defeating The Hooligans for the JCW Tag Team Titles over the weekend. That being said, they work A LOT of shows, so we hope to see them make the rankings in the near future.

 

 

 

People’s Champs. Colin Brooks (@TheColinBrooks) & Adam Grace (@b_clark81)-It was close most of the day in the online voting competition but this tag team pulled away after winning the WPW Tag Team Titles vs. Team Meat on 2/21. With 60 votes, no one was even close to challenging them for the People’s Champs award this week, proving once again that a lot of wrestlers and teams in that Wisconsin area have morefan support than some might know.

Indy Power Rankings for the Week of February 23rd, 2015

Indy Power Rankings for the Week of February 23rd, 2015

 

1Akira Tozawa (@TozawaAkira)-The domination of the Indy Power Rankings by Akira Tozawa and Monster Express continues this week after he went 3-0 to continue his insane winning streak to become #1 for the 2nd straight week. He teamed with teamed with Uhaa Nation at Dragon Gate on 2/16 to beat MAD BLANKEY (Cyber Kong and Don Fujiithen teamed with Uhaa Nation and Shingo Takagi on 2/21 to beat Dia.HEARTS (BxBHulk, Kzy and Big R Shimizu) and finally teamed with Shachihoko BOY and Keirin Man on 2/22 to defeat MAD BLANKEY (YAMATO, Don Fujiiand Punch Tominaga) to wrap up the week. He has won EIGHTEEN straight matches and is just the second person in 2015 to grab TWO #1 rankings and the first to do it two weeks straight.

 

2. Volador, Jr.-A STAGGERING 5-0 week gets Mexico some recognition this week after Volador, Jr. cruised through a VERY successful week.Despite not much support in the online voting competition, he got a lot of #1 votes from the official voters after the UIPW Heavyweight Champ, NWA Historic Welterweight Champ and 1/3 of CMLL World Trios Champs; teamed withDragón Rojo Jr., Stuka Jr. at CMLL on 2/17 to beatBoby Zavala, Gran Guerrero and Último Guerrero,then teamed with Rey Bucanero on 2/20 to beatBárbaro Cavernario and Titán in the first round, LaSombra and Negro Casas in the quarterfinals, and La Máscara and El Mephisto in the semis, and thenwrapped up the weekend when he teamed withMístico and El Valiente on 2/22 to beat Ephesto,Euforia and El Mephisto. Though his success was in tags, there’s an argument that there’s a certain degree of difficulty to survive that many tags with so many partners.

 

3. Josh Alexander (@Walking_Weapon)-The NEW AIW Absolute Champion gets a very high ranking this week after a successful 3-1 weekend, highlighted by winning one of the most important titles on the indies vs. Ethan Page, Eddie Kingston, and Rickey Shane Page. He also secured a #1 contender spot in A1W by winning a 6 Man #1contendership match. While he didn’t quite have a flawless weekend, he still got a lot of support from the official voters who felt that his wins most certainly outweighed his one tag team loss. Much like partner, Ethan Page, we will see if he can continue to build on this success throughout 2015.

 

4. Uhaa Nation (@UhaaNation)-The “One Man Nation” drops slightly from last week despite going 2-0 at Dragon Gate to continue his recent success. One thing that may have hurt him this week was his lack of singles victories as he teamed twice with Akira Tozawa to win two tag team matches, but make no mistake, the PCW Champion has been as good as anyone as of late. If he truly is going to the WWE as reported, the indies will be missing one of the best. Need proof? On top of all of his other accomplishments, he was #7 in the 2014 IPR 100 proving that the big man has limitless potential.

 

 

5. Jimmy Havoc (@JimmyHavoc)-One of the best in the UK gets his highest ranking to date as he had another solid weekend to add to his recent success.Though he had 4 honorable mentions in 2014, he was never able to crack the Top 10. This year has been different as this is his second ranking after theProgress Champion and FPW Champion; teamed with Marty Scurll at WWL to beat 2Unlimited (Jay& Patrick Sammon) then beat Ryan Hendricks, Wild Boar, Josh Bodom, Owen Phoenix & Tiger Ali in a #1 contenders six-way match at RPW the same night to go 2-0 for the week. Once again, as with previous weeks, the UK is proving that their talent ranks right up there with talent across the world.

 

6. FUMA-We get some more representation from Japan as FUMA became the NEW UPW Max Champion at Union in Japan on 2/22 as he defeatedGoro Jr in the first round, Shuji Ishikawa in the semifinals and Isami Kodaka in the final to win the tournament and go 3-0 for the week. With 7 wins in his last 10 matches, he’s definitely showing that he could be a player in 2015 as we are heading into the end of the second month of the year. While Dragon Gate, AJPW, NOAH, and several others have stolen the attention, this week Union gets a little credit where it’s due.

 

7. Roderick Strong (@RoderickStrong)-Roderick Strong, despite his many years on the indies, is just now starting to become a title collector as he is the NEW FIP World Champion after defeating Trent ?for the vacant title in a No DQ Match over the weekend. He is also the PWG World Champion, meaning he holds two of the top independent wrestling titles in the United States. With as dominant as he has been throughout his career, it’s good to see him getting more success in 2015 as he is still at the top of his game.

 

8. Marty Scurll (@MartyScurll)-We get our second UK talent in the Top 10 this week as the RPW British Heavyweight Champion (and 1/2 of SWE Tag Team Champions) teamed with Jimmy Havoc at WWL on 2/22 to beat 2Unlimited (Jay & PatrickSammon) and then defeated Doug Williams the same night to defend his title and go 2-0 on the weekend. With 5 straight victories, he’s been really picking up steam as 2015 is just getting going. One thing that did hurt him this week was that he was unable to secure any votes in the online voting competition, so perhaps fan support is one thing that might improve his ranking in the future.

 

9. Shane Mercer (@TheIronDemon)-If you have not seen Shane Mercer wrestle, you’re really missing out. He’s one of the strongest competitors in all of wrestling right now, not to mention his insane agility and high-flying repertoire. With a victory vs. Kaden Sade in a very well received match and a draw vs. Kongo Kong, Mercer gets enough support, plus a ton of fan support to crack the Top 10 this week. He has been toiling away all year for this chance and now that he’s in the Top 10, look out as he has been as good as anyone in recent weeks.

 

10. Adonis-For the first time, we have representation from the country of Georgia. No, not the state…the COUNTRY. He is the NEW APW Champion and APW Georgia Champion after he teamed with Amor on 2/19 to beat Vladamir Petrov & MikeyYolo, then won a money in the bank battle royal the same night, then beat Logan Stevens on 2/21 to retain his Georgia title, and then finally cashed in his money in the bank to beat Ironman the same night to go 4-0 for the week. Incredible success story overseas as once again, the Indy Power Rankings are truly international.

 

People’s Champ. Maxwell Chicago (@HenryMaxwellCHI)-One of the most entertaining “acts” on the indies gets a mention for the very first time in the Indy Power Rankings after he defeated Chasyn Rance for the FIP Florida Heritage Title and then won the online voting competition! Huge week for the lounge singer who also pro wrestles.

 

Honorable Mention. Mann Dozer- 1/2 of theSnakepit Tag Team Champios teamed with Joey Triton on 2/21 to beat Acid Haze & John E Radicto retain their titles, then defeated Dark Valentine atSnakepit on 2/22 in the first round, then beat Joey Triton in the semis the same daythen Matt Hayterin the final to win the Snakepit tournament and go 4-0 for the weekA snub? Perhaps, but it was very close this week.
