Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of May 23rd, 2016

#1 Extreme Horsemen (John Skyler, Steve Corino, & CW Anderson)-A 3-man team gets the #1 spot this week as they represent PWF Crystal Coast as their new champions. The NEW PWF Universal Six-Man Tag Team Champions defeated F1rst Generation (James Anthony, Victor Andrews) and Jack Cicero at PWF on 5/20 in the first round of the title tournament and then defeated The Syndicate in the final to become inaugural champions and to go 2-0 for the week. This 3-man team is a mix of one of the best young talents in the business combined with two of the best veterans still going. With this #1 ranking and possible future title defenses, they now put themselves in the hunt for a great spot in the Tag Team Top 50 at the end of the year if they can continue to team and win together.

 

 

#2 Roscoe Eat Lisa (Mikey McFinnegan & Zakk Sawyers @RoscoeEatLisa)-Bark bark gator tits! Roscoe Eat Lisa are inching their way even closer to the top of the Tag Team Top 50 for 2016 as they get yet another ranking this week after defeating two of the best teams on the indies over the weekend. On 5/20 they defeated The Viking War Party (Jake Parnell & Alex Rudolph) at SLA and then beat The Hooligans on 5/21 at SLA to go 2-0 for the week. Beating two of the best tag teams on the indies in itself was huge, but when you combine that with their recent success, you see why this tag team is back in the rankings again at such a high position. They are in the best shape of their lives with Mexico on their radar.

 

 

#3 The Batiri (Kodama & Obariyon)-Believe it or not, this is the first ranking ever for The Batiri as they took their talents to Europe and came out looking like gold. They defeated The Facesmashers (Dan Moloney & Wild Boar) at FCP vs Chikara on 5/20, then teamed with Nad Yenolom on 5/21 to defeat The Hunter Brothers (Jim & Lee) & Clint Margera, and then teamed with YENOLOM (Dan Moloney) on 5/22 to defeat Drew Gulak, Travis Banks & Tyler Bate to go 3-0 for the week. The only thing that really kept them out of the top spot this week was that 2 out of their 3 victories were not in straight up two-on-two tags and of course, this DUO is being judged on those victories. That being said, it’s fantastic to see them in the Tag Team Top 5 for the first time and we hope to see this more and more frequently as the year rolls on.

 

 

#4 Bomb Shelter (Joseph Schwartz & Zodiak)-The modern day villains of the wrestling world get themselves another ranking after yet another good week on the indies as a team. This tag team defeated the legendary Tracy Smothers & JC Rotten at IWA Mid-South on 5/19 and then teamed with Bill the Butcher & The Carpenter at PCW on 5/22 to defeat Team Money (Brian Blaze, Geter, Johnny Danger & Uncle Money) to go 2-0 for the week. This tag team may be the most dastardly tag team in all of professional wrestling, but one thing is for sure, they continue to make huge strides as they continue to excel as a unit where ever they go.

 

 

#5 People’s Champs. The Fellowship (Ronnie Ribs & GA West)-The now EIGHT time People’s Champs (three this year) got on the ballot by defeating Xander Litt & Nathaniel Carr at PWACT on 5/20. 133 votes later and the fans pushed them to the #5 spot all on their own. So not only did The Fellowship succeed by becoming People’s Champs with the fans’ help, they got ranked all because of them. So congrats to The Fellowship on yet another People’s Champs award, but for another ranking as well. You can follow them on Twitter and find out where they’ll be competing week-to-week at:

Indy Power Rankings for the Week of May 23rd, 2016

#1 Io Shirai (@shirai_io)-It was a CLEAN sweep of the official voters for Io Shirai as she absolutely dominated the world over the weekend. As stated, she didn’t just dominate Japan (as she so often does) the World of Stardom, 1/3 of Arist and Goddesses of Stardom Champions and NEW SWA Champion went on tour around Europe as she defeated Kasey Owens at ABC vs Stardom in France on 5/20 to retain the World of Stardom title, then at RCW vs Stardom in Spain on 5/21 defeated Kay Lee Ray in the first round, then defeated Dragonita in the semifinals, then defeated Toni Storm in the final to win the vacant SWA title, and then defeated Kay Lee Ray at BEW vs Stardom in the UK on 5/22 to retain the SWA title to go 5-0 for the week. She was the only competitor with 5 wins and with a new title and zero losses to brag about, this just wasn’t even close. Congrats to Io Shirai on her first-ever #1 ranking!
 
#2 Andd Bivians (https://www.facebook.com/The-King-Of-Class-Andd-Bivians-177804865604080/timeline/ )-“The King of Class” gets another ranking this week as he leaned heavily on the fan poll to boost him from #3 in the rankings to #2, all because of the support of his fans, proving yet again that THE FAN VOTE MATTERS. The UWC Heavyweight added the OTW Heavyweight Title to his collection as he won a 16 man tournament on 5/20 and 5/21 at OTW. He had a first round bye, then defeated Dan Gallenger in the quarterfinals, then defeated Dre The Dragon Drummond in the semis, then defeated Brian Johnson in the final to win the sole survivor trophy, and then cashed in the trophy to defeat Adam Chandler to win the title to go 4-0 for the week. Hell of a week for Bivians as he’s having a fantastic year so far.
 
#3 Chris Hero (@TheChrisHero)-Chris Hero gets back into the rankings yet again this year as he defeated Jeff Cobb at PWG on 5/20 and then got his win back vs. Michael Elgin at ESW on 5/21 to go 2-0 for the week. Hero has been absolutely incredible in his recent performances and this past weekend was no different as he received rave reviews from California to New York. “The Knockout Artist” continues to have a tremendous 2016 as he is just lining them up and knocking them down all over the world, but the question now is…will he be adding some gold in the near future?
 
#4 Trevor Lee (@TLee910)-The former #1 continues his success this year as he has been taking his winning ways from TNA back out onto the indies. The CWF Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Champion and TNA X-Division Champion defeated Andrew Everett at PWG on 5/20 and then beat Caleb Konley at ALW on 5/22 to retain the X-Division Title. A 2-0 week plus a strong quality of opposition earns Trevor Lee yet another high ranking as he just continues to get better and better throughout the year. We thought he was going to be a star in 2016 and he continues to prove us right.
 
#5 Mat Fitchett (@thedirtyrook)-SLA was Mat Fitchett’s stomping ground over the weekend as he picked up two very good victories. The current SLA Heavyweight Champion ans ½ of the AAW and MPW Tag Team Champions defeated Evan Gelistico at SLA on 5/20 to retain the title and then beat TJ Perkins on 5/21 to retain again to go 2-0 on the week. Fitchett is one of those talents that had been flying under the radar the last couple of years, but NOW he’s really starting to make a name for himself with some great performances and title wins all over the Midwest.
 
#6 Chainsaw King (@ChainsawKing)-The 6’4, 295 pound monster gets himself a ranking this week as the FLW Heavyweight Champion defeated Darin Corbin on 5/20 to retain the title and then beat former #1 Ariya Daivari on 5/21 to retain the title again to go 2-0 for the week. King, like Mat Fitchett, is another one of those names that you may hear a lot about, but until you see him, you really have no idea how impressive he really is. Keep an eye on Chainsaw King as he continues to chug forward with a ton of momentum heading into the second half of 2016.
 
#7 Pete Dunne (@PeteDunneYxB)-Pete Dunne continues his career year as the Rev Pro British Cruiserweight and PWK Champion defeated Eddie Kingston at FCP vs Chikara on 5/20, then teamed with Damian Dunne & MK McKinnan to defeat Disney Princesses (Princess Kimber Lee, Heidi Lovelace and Nixon Newell) on 5/21, and then defeated Ophidian on 5/22 to go 3-0 for the week. Two big singles wins and a very impressive 6-person tag team victory get Pete Dunne yet another of many rankings in 2016. He continues to have the best year of his career as he just scoring win after win.
 
#8 Santana Garrett (@SantanaGarrett_)-Last year’s IPR 100 #1 had another successful overseas week as she went 4-2, winning the International Grand Prix 2016 Tournament. The Battling Bombshells, BPW Heavyweight, OPW Women’s, NPW Women’s, CWE Vixen’s, RIOT Women’s and Wrestling Superstar Women’s Champion started slow as she lost an RCW Women’s triple threat title match to Leah Owens at ABC vs Stardom in France on 5/20; then at RCW vs Stardom in Spain on 5/21 defeated Alpha Female in the first round, then lost to Toni Storm in the semifinals, then at BEW vs Stardom in the UK on 5/22 defeated Danielle Hunter in the first round, then defeated Diosa Atenea in the semifinals, then defeated Nixon Newell and Mayu Iwatani in a triple threat final to win the tournament to also become SWA Women’s Title #1 Contender. Her year has been filled with world traveling and though she hasn’t loaded up with #1 rankings like last year, she’s still having an incredible year.
 
#9 Big Grizzly (http://www.facebook.com/biggrizzlywrestler )-The “all round angry bearded bastard from South Wales” gets his first ranking this week after a few surprising victories over the weekend. Grizz was a late addition to the poll, but absolutely deserved his ranking as the FCP All Wales Champion, PWP Heavyweight Champion and ½ of the CW Tag Team Champions defeated Danny Jones, Matthew Horgan and Panda Cub at FCP vs CHIKARA on 5/20 to retain the All Wales title, then defeated Eddie Dennis at PWC on 5/21, and then defeated Johnny Gargano at PWP on 5/22 to go 3-0 for the week. Time will tell if he gets ranked again, but with him picking up victories like the ones he scored over the weekend, it seems inevitable.
 
#10 Sean Mercer (https://www.facebook.com/MercerTheMonster/ )-The West Lothian based talent gets his first ranking this week as he defeated The Wrestler in the quarterfinals of the Battle of West Lothian Tournament at RIW on 5/22, then beat Theo Doros in the semis, and then defeated Rob Mills in the finals to win the tournament to go 3-0 for the week. Like Big Grizzly, we’ll have to wait and see if he can duplicate this type of success in future weeks this year.
 
People’s Champ. Trey Miguel (@TreyMiguel1)-Rockstar Pro’s Ludas produces the People’s Champ this week as Trey Miguel got on the poll by defeating Dezmond Xavier on 5/20 at Ludus. He then collected 109 votes from his fans and supporters to win the online voting competition by a pretty wide margin (45 votes). This humble talent from Toledo, OH has been making waves around that area and looks to continue that success as 2016 rolls on. Give him a like on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/officialtreymiguel and a follow on Instagram at @TreyMiguel1
