Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of September 19th, 2016

#1 VerserK (Naruki Doi & Shingo Takagi)-It’s a second visit to the top spot for this particular combination of the VerserK faction after an impressive 3-0 week at Dragon Gate in Japan. They defeated Jimmyz (Jimmy Kagetora & Jimmy Kanda) on 9/16; then defeated Over Generation (Dragon Kid & Gamma) on 9/17; then defeated Tribe Vanguard (BxB Hulk and Kzy) on 9/18 to conclude a very successful week. It helps Doi and Takagi take another step closer to a spot in our year-end top 50 but the thing which hurts a lot of Dragon Gate competitors is that they belong to large factions and don’t always tag with the same person at every event.

#2 Hardcore Impact (Pauly Thomaselli & Hardcore Craig)-It’s a first visit to the top 5 for this duo after a brilliant week in which they defended one title and won another. They started off at Brew City Wrestling on 9/16 where they defended that organization’s tag titles against Superiority Complex. Then they made the journey to Pro Wrestling Blitz, where they defeated The RuffBecks (Ruff Crossing and Mason Beck) on 9/17 to win the PWB tag titles and go 2-0 for the week. If they can continue to defend both sets of titles on a regular basis, they could make a late charge for inclusion in our year-end rankings.

#3 Super Smash Brothers (Evil Uno & Stu Grayson)-It’s been quite some time since we heard from this Canadian duo, but they came back with a bang this weekend, beating top British team The London Riots (James Davis & Rob Lynch) and Well Oiled Machines (Pepper Parks & Mike Rollins) at the Progress Wrestling vs Smash Wrestling event in Canada on 9/18. They could have had an even better weekend, but Evil Uno opted to focus predominantly on singles matches. Super Smash Brothers have been competing together for eight years and held titles everywhere from Chikara to Pro Wrestling Guerilla to Alpha 1. If they can get back on a winning streak, the sky’s the limit for this pair.

#4 Kimber Lee & Heidi Lovelace-In between their singles commitments this weekend, two of the top women on the independent scene found time to team up and defeat some bearded bullies. They came to AAW and defeated  our two-time year-end #1 tag team, The Hooligans (Devin & Mason Cutter). The Hooligans have been so dominant in recent years that any time they lose it has to be considered an upset, but defeat to a couple of women wrestlers who don’t even team up regularly is definitely newsworthy.

#5 Davey Vega & Mat Fitchett-This duo has used names Kobrai Kai Dojo and Sex Bob-ombs over the years but now seem happy just to go by Vega and Fitchett. They are the current AAW tag champs and retained the prestigious titles by defeating OI4K (Dave & Jake Crist) on 9/16. While other teams who didn’t make this week’s top 5 may have had more victories, the combination of the prestige of the titles and the quality of their opponents resulted in a much-deserved top 5 ranking.

People’s Champs: Los Chicanos (Jose Garcia & Memo Cuevas)-A few hours before the voting closed it looked like Days of Rage were going to achieve the rare feat of being People’s Champions two weeks in a row. But Los Chicanos, who are the new School Of Morton East Tennessee Tag Team Champions, put in a late charge and eventually won the public poll by one vote. Working at the training school/wrestling promotion run by Ricky Morton of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, Los Chicanos must be picking up tons of tips about tag team wrestling and this will be very beneficial as their careers take off.

Indy Power Rankings for the Week of September 19th, 2016

#1 Amazing Maria James (@Amazing_Maria)-Amazing Maria’s incredible year only gets better as the OVW Women’s Champion becomes the first OVW competitor to grab a #1 ranking since 2014. She dominated the week as she defeated Jessie Belle Smothers at OVW on 9/13, then defeated Jamie Lynn at Girl Fight on 9/14, then defeated Scarlet the same day, then defeated Samantha Heights at RCW on 9/16, and then teamed with Stacy Shadows at PWF to beat Priscilla Kelly and Maddie Maxx at PWF on 9/18 to go 5-0 for the week. Simply well…amazing! This is her first #1 ranking despite multiple rankings and mentions this year and if she can keep up this insane pace, you’ll be seeing more of her in the rankings before the end of 2016.
 
#2 Mark Haskins (@FightHaskins)-The FNF British, 4FW Junior Heavyweight and Smash Wrestling Champion DOMINATES the weekend in Canada as he defeated Maybach Beta at Smash vs Progress on 9/16 to retain the title, then defeated Brent Banks on 9/17 to retain the title again, and then defeated Mike Bailey on 9/18 to retain again to go 3-0 for the week. Haskins got a bit of support for the #1 spot by a couple of the official voters because of his three impressive victories and title defenses, but he JUST misses out on his first-ever #1 ranking this week. With weeks like this, a #1 ranking can’t be far off for the UK star.
 
#3 Cody Deaner (@CodyDeaner)-The former TNA superstar has really experienced a career rebirth in 2016 as he has been picking up victories all over Canada. The BCW Heavyweight, MCW Heavyweight, Battle Arts Openweight, CW Heavyweight and CCW Heavyweight Champion defeated Jake O’Reilly in a Steel Cage Match on 9/15 to retain the CCW title, then defeated Todd Shaw on 9/16 to retain the CCW title again, then defeated Venomous at Ultimate Wrestling on 9/17, and then defeated Phil Atlas on 9/18 to retain the CCW title to go 4-0 for the week. Deaner continues to impress as he wins and retains titles every chance he gets.
 
#4 Ricochet (@KingRicochet)-The 2014 IPR 100 #1 actually got one #1 vote from one official voter based on strength of competition and prestige as he defeated Tony Nese on 9/16 at HOH and Sami Callihan on 9/17. Two big victories weren’t quite enough to crack the Top 3 as no titles were on the line in either match. Rest assured though, 1/3 of the NEVER Openweight Six Man Tag Team Champions is still wowing audiences anywhere he goes and despite it being a while since his last #1 ranking, he’s still just as good as he ever was.
 
#5 Shane Mercer (@theirondemon)-FANTASTIC week for “The Iron Demon” as he toured the Midwest as he defeated Lucas Jacobs at OVW on 9/14, then defeated Shigehiro Irie at IWAMid-South on 9/15, then beat Brutus Dylan in a Last Man Standing Match on 9/17, and then beat Aimes at FWF on 9/18 to go 4-0 for the week. After being ranked #6 last week, Shane Mercer has been simply ON FIRE as of late as he has been mowing down the competition. Another date with Kongo Kong (this time for the FWF Title) looms on the horizon as Mercer looks to finally vanquish perhaps his toughest competitor. He was also #8 in the online voting competition this week with 31 votes.
 
#6 Beautiful Beaa-#9 in the online voting competition with 30 votes
 
#7 Matt Hardy
 
#8 Tank Nagai
 
#9 Jack Jester
 
#10 Santana Garrett-Tied for #6 in the online voting competition with 34 votes
 
People’s Champ. Sonya Strong (@Sonya_Strong1)-What an impressive victory in the online voting competition for Sonya Strong as she collected a MASSIVE amount of votes, finishing with 404 to win the People’s Champ award this week. She is the NEW Pro Wrestling Magic Women’s Champion after she defeated Jordynne Grace on 9/17 to win the vacant title. That victory got her on the poll and her fans/supporters took care of the rest.
