Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of February 20th, 2017 


#1 Dishonorable Impact (Chelsea Green & Taeler Hendrix)-The inaugural Queens of Combat Tag Team Champions become the first female tag team to grab #1 in the Tag Team Top 5 in quite some time. The duo of Chelsea Green and Taeler Hendrix ran through a loaded tournament as they beat Kiera Hogan & Aja Perera, Rachael Ellering & Nevaeh, and finally Leva Bates & Mia Yim to finally win the tournament and the titles. The QOC Tag Team Champions swept the official voters’ ballots as each and every official voter had them at #1 on their ballot this week. This is a team that with their first #1 ranking now has a ton of momentum on their side. Time will tell if they continue to build and pick up further rankings as 2017 rolls on.

 

 

#2 People’s Champs. The Four Nations (Jack Bonza & Mick Moretti)-Don’t let the polldaddy glitches fool you…The Four Nations did BARELY win the online voting competition this week as they were in the lead at the 10 PM Eastern cutoff. That being said, they not only won the competition, but earned their way into the #2 spot as they defeated Concrete Davidson and Big Fudge at Newcaste Pro in Australia on 2/18 in the semifinals and then defeated SMS (InstaGraham & Snapchad) in the final to win the 2017 King of the Castle Tournament to go 2-0 for the week.

And Mick Moretti here: https://www.facebook.com/mickmorettipw

 

#3 Kings of the East (King Shahil & Lazar Armani)-It was really a toss-up to see who would be #2 and who would be #3 this week, but in the end the online voting competition pushed Four Nations ahead of the Kings of the East despite an almost identical weekend. This tag team defeated Power Force (Aaron Jackson & Jagger Stevens) at New Horizons Pro Wrestling in Australia on 2/18 in the semifinals and then defeated Team Overdrive (Estrella Ardiente & Jarrad Slate) in the final to win the Headshrinker Samu Legacy Cup Tournament to go 2-0 for the week. Australia proved to be a heavy-hitter in this week’s tag team rankings as we ended up with Australian tag teams at #2 and #3.

 

 

#4 The Guerrillas of Destiny (Tama Tonga & Tanga Loa)-The NEW WrestleCircus Tag Team Champions get their first-ever ranking this week as they defeated The Pretty Boy Killers (Keith Lee & Shane Taylor), The Boys (Brandon & Brent), Extra Talented (Aaron Solo & Ricky Starks), Andy Dalton & Scott McKenzie and Carson & Davey Boy Smith Jr. to become inaugural champions in a battle royal on 2/19. Outlasting 5 other teams was particularly impressive as they are the only team with one official victory in the Tag Team Top 5 this week, but with that being said, again, they DID beat five other teams to win the titles. This week has been all about new blood and G.O.D. is no different.

 

#5 Raze Cray (Ruby Raze & Ray Lyn)-Hell of a week for this impressive tag team as they knocked off Sage Sin Supreme & Kimmy Shellhammer at Sabotage on 2/18 and then beat Holidead & Heather Monroe the same day to go 2-0 for the week. It should also be noted that they ended the week in fourth in the online voting competition with 37 votes from their fans and supporters in a very stacked field. If these two continue to team consistently, you could absolutely start to see them climb the Tag Team Top 5 ladder with a #1 ranking in sight. Time will tell, as always.

Indy Power Rankings for the Week of February 20th, 2017


#1 People’s Champ. Darius Carter (@MrDariusCarter)-What an absolutely INSANE week of success for so many talents all over the indies. You could have interchanged more than even TEN people into the top spot this week, but in the end, it was the online voting competition that essentially determined who would become #1. For the third time this year, we have a #1 who is also the People’s Champ in the same week. The Tier 1 World Champion beat Matt Striker Five Borough Wrestling on 2/17 to retain the Tier 1 title, then defeated Pinkie Sanchez at Pro Wrestling Magic on 2/18 to retain the title again, and then defeated Jason Vera at Tier 1 Lucha on 2/19 to go 3-0 for the week. He then collected a VERY impressive 129 votes to edge out Stitches for the People’s Champ award this week. It couldn’t happen to a more dedicated wrestler as Darius Carter just continues to know how to market himself. Give him a like on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/WrestlingsRichestPrize/

 

#2 John Wayne Murdoch-The success continues for the IWA Mid-South Champion as he just continues to win and win…and win! First, he beat Zachary Wentz on 2/16 to retain the title, then beat Jake Parnell on 2/18 to retain again, and then beat Zodiak the same night to go 3-0 for the week. JWM has been absolutely UNSTOPPABLE in 2017. The 2016 King of the Death Matches is EASILY #1 in this year’s IPR 100 (as of now) and looks to continue that success this year, which will surely require him to continue to retain that IWA World Title week after week. Murdoch is absolutely on FIRE right now and it’s looking like there’s no one in IWA who can stop him.

 

#3 Trent Seven (@trentseven)-Despite being unable to wrest the WWE UK Championship away from his Moustache Mountain partner on NXT (which of course doesn’t count towards our rankings) his success on the indies this past week landed him in the #3 spot in this week’s Top 10. The ICW World Champion and ½ of the PROGRESS and CHIKARA Tag Team Champions beat Lionheart on 2/17 to retain the title, then beat Joe Hendry in a non-title match on 2/18, and then beat Wolfgang on 2/19 to retain once again to go 3-0 for the week. The UK got a LOT of spotlight in 2016 and that appears to be continuing as 2017 rolls on.

 

 

 

#4 Ricochet (@KingRicochet)-The 2014 IPR 100 #1 is back in the Indy Power Rankings this week after a spectacular 3-0 week for the Future of Flight. He defeated Travis Banks at What Culture Pro Wrestling on 2/13, then defeated Lio Rush at Pro Wrestling Guerilla on 2/18, and then defeated Sammy Gueverra at WrestleCircus on 2/19 to finish off his perfect week. On any other week, those wins would have been enough to warrant a #1 ranking, but this week was absolutely rampant with huge wins and multiple victories. Time will tell if Ricochet can pick up this pace and perhaps land back in the IPR 100 once again at the end of 2017.

 
#5 Joe Coffey (@Joe_Coffey)-The Scottish Heavyweight Champion had one hell of a week as he defeated BT Gunn at What Culture Pro Wrestling on 2/13, then defeated Ravie Davie at Insane Championship Wrestling on 2/17, then defeated Sha Samuels on 2/18, and then defeated BT Gunn on 2/19 to go 4-0 for the week. Like Ricochet and so many others, this was easily a week that would have landed him in the #1 spot on any other week, but again, this week was just full of difficult choices and competition. Look out for Joe Coffey to continue this momentum as 2017 continues to churn out more and more rankings.

Tag Team Top 5 for the week of February 13th, 2017

iprcage&Callihan#1.png

 

1. TWINS (Sami Callihan & Brian Cage)- This duo from the Lucha UnderGround teamed up this week at FEST Wrestling’s Love Cup and won the whole tournament!!! “Mr GMSI” and “The Death Machine” defeated Shane Strickland & Angel Rose in the 1st round; then defeated Aaron Epic & Martin Stone in the semifinals; the defeated TWO teams in the final getting the tournament win over Pop Culture (Jason Cade & Veda Scott) & Team Lucha (Jay Rios & Jon Cruz) THREE BIG WINS over TOP NOTCH talent get these Twins the #1 ranking this week.

2. Chip Day & Priscilla Kelly- Our number 2 team also won a tournament to claim their spot in this week’s Indy Power Rankings Tag Team Top 5. The Hiearchy was representing as Chip Day & Priscilla Kelly went to Georgia Premier Wrestling defeating Johnny Rokk & Tiffany Roxx in the opening round; Joseph A’gau & Kayla Lynn in the semifinals; and finally besting Jessica Lee & Torque to win the ‘Together we Fight’ Tournament with a 3-0 weekend.

3. Scarlet & Graves (Dezmond Xavier & Zachary Wentz)- These two are no strangers to the Indy Power Rankings and this week they got a big title defense of those Combat Zone Wrestling tag team championships defeating EYFBO (Angel Ortiz & Mike Draztik) on 2/11. Again the prestige of Wentz & Xavier as a team as well as the prestige of those CZW tag team titles gets Scarlet & Graves back in the top 5 this week and looking for an even higher spot in the 2017 Year End Rankings.

4. The Swords of Essex (Scott Wainwright & Will Ospreay)-We go back to the UK for our #4 team this week.  Wainwright & Ospreay were already 2/3rds of British Triangle Champions and added to that this week becoming the NEW What Culture Pro Wrestling Tag Team Champions; The duo defeated El Ligero & Gabriel Kidd, Johnny Moss & Liam Slater and Prospect (Alex Gracie & Lucas Archer) in a four-way ladder match at WCPW on 2/12 to add more championship gold (and an IPR ranking) to their impressive bodies of work.

5. N Words (Acid Jazz & Bryce Benjamin)- 2-0 for the Freelance Wrestling Tag Team Champions this week but ONE HUGE victory came on 2/11 when they defeated #1 in the 2017 Year End Rankings The Carnies (Kerry Awful & Nick Iggy) to retain the titles; The duo then went on to team with Shiloh Greaves at Galli Lucha on 2/12 to defeat Joey Ryan, Matt Knicks & Stevie Fierce ending a very successful, undefeated week.

1. Chase Owens- The New NWA Southeastern Heavyweight Champion accomplished quite a feat on his way to #1 this week ending the 1951 day reign of Jason Kincaid at NWA Smoky Moutain and picked up another win at Pro Wrestling Freedom over Adrian Armour to go 2-0 and claim this week’s  top spot-ski for The Bullet Club!

2. Dave Crist- Another singles ranking for one half of Oi4k! As Dave Crist is ranked very high once again this week. 3 big singles wins in 3 big promotions this week starting off 2/8 defeating Dezmond Xavier at Rockstar Pro, then defeated Larry D at IWA-Mid South, and finished with a win in the Combat Zone over RIckey Shane Page for one hell of a weekend. 2017 has been a tremendous year for Dave Crist and he adds to that repetoire this week.

3.Tracer X- Speaking of hellacious weekends, What a performance this week from Tracer X to make his IPR debut! Tracer won the 2nd Style Battle Tournament defeating three top tier opponents in FIP Champion Fred Yehi, Sami Callihan, and Anthony Henry to make the most of his debut with WWN. Tracer X did suffer a defeat in 6 man tag team action the following night teaming with Sami Guevara and Austin Theory in defeat to Sami Callihan, AR Fox, & Darby Allin. Even with the loss, Their was debate amongst the official voters as to whether X had THE BEST performance of the weekend but he was just edged out in the end.

4. Dicky Maier- We continue with another tremendous breakout performance resulting in a very high debut on the IPR top 10. Maier came out on top of TWO tournaments this past week defeating Super Beetle, Anthony Idol, and Ryan Kidd at Desert Wrestling Entertainment to win the Carrot Cup and then winning the finals of the Percy Pringle Memorial III Memorial Cup at CWF Hollywood. 5-0! Definitely one of the hardest working and most successful weeks goes to Dicky Maier. *NOTE* Maier’s CWF Hollywood result came in after official voting had began**

5. John Wayne Murdoch- Another IPR week in the books and another top 5 ranking for the “Duke of Hardore”!! The IWA-MS Champion is having maybe THE most consistent 2017 of any wrestlers on our ballots to date. JWM again defended the championship on two occasions and had his hand raised in victory both times. On 2/9 Murdoch defeated Aaron Williams and on 2/11 he took on not one but two challengers in former IPR #1 Shane Mercer and Josh Crow. If things continue this way for the IWA-MS Champion we should see him ranked very high when we give our mid year update on the 2017 IPR100.
