Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of January 16th, 2017 


#1 The Ugly Ducklings (Rob Killjoy & Lance Lude)-The PWX Tag Team Champions and 2/3 of the PWF Universal 6 Man Champions are BACK in the Tag Team Top 5 after having gotten two spots for their stable in the Tag Team Top 50 for 2016. This past week they defeated High Profile 1/13 at EWA to retain the PWX tag titles, then defeated Jakob Hammermeier & Zane Rilley at WZW 1/14 to retain the titles again, and then defeated Scarlet & Graves (Dezmond Xavier & Zachary Wentz) at PWX on 1/15 to retain the titles again to go 3-0 for the week. This tag team was phenomenal in 2016 and 2017 looks like it’s going to be more of the same for one of the most charismatic tag teams on all the indies. They also picked up an impressive 29 votes in the online voting competition as well.

 

 

#2 The Hooligans (Devin & Mason Cutter @BeardedBullys)-Make it THREE times at #2 this year for those Bearded Bullies from Brutalsville, U.S.A. The FIP, Rockstar Pro, and Zero1 USA Tag Team Champions added yet another set of tag titles to their collection over the weekend. First, they beat Night Ryderz (Dustin Rayz & Alex Colon), Fight or Flight (Kyle Maverick & Nate Wings) and N3 (Jonathan Wolf & Myron Reed) in a four-way at Rockstar Pro on 1/11 to retain the Rockstar Pro titles and then beat The Peacemakers (Jeremiah Plunkett & Buzz Dupp) at SWF on 1/13 to win the titles to go 2-0 for the week. This tag team is on FIRE in 2017 as they continue their dominance of the Midwest indy scene.

 

 

#3 Santana Garrett & Raquel-The SHINE Tag Team Champions came oh so close to winning this week’s online voting competition, but the good news is their fans helped push them up to #3 this week after a big title defense at SHINE. On 1/13 they continued their momentum as a team as they beat Thea Trinidad and Amanda Carolina Rodriguez as well as Amber O’Neal and Kennadi Brink in a Triple Threat Match (at SHINE) to retain the titles. This duo seems to be really paving the way for an impressive run as champs in Florida and if they decide to team elsewhere, look out for them to make a good run at this year’s Tag Team Top 50. They also came in #2 in the online voting competition with 67 votes from their fans.

 

 

#4 Arcadia (Horus & Kyo Kazama)-This Italian tag team gets their first ranking this week as the ASCA Tag Team Champions defeated Aaron Cage & Manuel Bottazzini at Rising Sun Promotions in Italy on 1/14 to retain the titles and then defeated The Arrows Of Hungary (Dover & Icarus) the same day to retain again and go 2-0 for the week. With a little bit of consistency, you could be seeing more of this tag team in the tag team rankings in 2017 if they can continue to pick up victories and retain the ASCA Tag Team Titles. The only thing that kept them out of the #3 spot this week was the lack of fan support in the online vote, but perhaps that won’t be the case if there’s a next time for them.

 

#5 5 Star Spectacular (5 Star Jase & JC Rodriguez)-The NEW New Age Old Tyme Wrestling Tag Team Champions get their first-ever ranking this week after winning the tournament for the vacant titles over the weekend. They defeated The Fellowship (Osiris & SOT) on 1/14 in the first round, then defeated Fear Factor (Necro Mancer & Eric Pierce) in the semifinals, and then defeated The Stacked Deck (Mike Montero & Chris Cruise) in the final to win the tournament and the vacant titles. A 3-0 record gets them their first ranking, but if they can really start picking up some wins and title defenses, you’ll likely see more of them in the rankings in 2017.

 

People’s Champs. LatiNatioN (Jorge Carranza & Mandril Escobar)-A victory over Carlos Vegan and Jon Hammer at RIOT Wrestling in Spain on 1/14 got them on the poll this week, but it was 102 votes from their fans and supporters that got them their first People’s Champ award after winning the online voting competition. We’ve seen representatives do well (and even win) online voting competitions in the past, but with a team like Santana and Raquel hot on their heels, their victory this week was particularly impressive.

Indy Power Rankings for the Week of January 16th, 2017


#1 David Starr (@TheProductDS)-We have our first two-time #1 of 2017 as David Starr is once again #1 after a fantastic 3-0 weekend where he repeatedly defended and retained his wXw Shotgun Title in the United States. ON 1/13 he defeated Rude Boy Riley at Next Level Wrestling, then defeated Alexander James at Combat Zone Wrestling on 1/14, and then defeated Sami Callihan and Lio Rush in a triple threat at PWX on 1/15 to wrap up the week with a perfect record and his second #1 ranking. How good has David Starr been since winning the wXw Shotgun Title? He’s simply been unstoppable and in fact, if the 2017 IPR 100 were to come out today, he’d be sitting at #1 and making everyone “Look at it.”

 

#2 ACH (@GoGoACH)-It’s the second ranking of 2017 for the AAW Heritage Champion as he went to Canada for a BUSY week and managed to pick up wins in 5 of his 6 matches there. He defeated Michael Allen Richard Clark at Canadian Wrestling’s Elite on 1/10, then defeated Shane Sabre, Tony Kozina and Travis Cole in a four-way on 1/11, then lost to Tony Kozina on 1/12, then defeated Shigehiro Irie on 1/13, then defeated Shigehiro Irie again on 1/14, and then defeated Shane Sabre on 1/15 to go 5-1 for the week. This high-flyer is already making a push to prove that he’s still one of the very best independent wrestlers in the entire world in 2017.

 

#3 John Wayne Murdoch (@johnmurdoch25)-#1 last week. #3 this week. 2017 is already looking fantastic for “The Duke of Hardcore” as he is making the most of this IWA World Title reign. On 1/12 he defeated Derek Neal to retain the title and then beat Mance Warner on 1/14 to retain once again. JWM has been killing it lately and it appears that this particular reign at the top of IWA Mid-South will be his most productive yet. With IWA running at least one show a week, he’s going to have many opportunities to pick up victories to try to rack up rankings until his title run comes to an end. Look out for Murdoch as a top contender for the 2017 IPR 100’s top spot…as he always says “What if?”

 

 

 

#4 LuFisto (@lufisto)-The NEW SHINE Champion gets her first ranking in quite some time as she took full advantage of her opportunity to win the vacant title on 1/13. A victory over both Mercedes Martinez and Allysin Kay in a Triple Threat on 1/13 meant a lot to the official voters and fans alike as she proved to still have what it takes as one of the top female wrestlers in the entire world. With the SHINE title now around her waist, look out for LuFisto to look to continue this success as 2017 rolls on.

 
#5 Matt Riddle (@riddletuf7)-It appears that 2016 was just a taste of how impressive Matt Riddle is going to be in the coming years. Riddle became the NEW PROGRESS Atlas Champion after beating Rampage Brown at PROGRESS on 1/15 to win the title. It was an important weekend as there’s a good chance that Riddle impressed many WWE officials who were in the UK for the UK Championship Tournament. That being said, with him now holding an important title and consistently working all around the globe, Matt Riddle is going to be a force to be reckoned with once again this year.
 
#6 Dave Crist
 
#7 Jake Garvin
 
#8 People’s Champ. Kongo Kong (@RealKongoKong)-“Da Monsta” just does…NOT…STOP. After a week where he worked at TNA (which doesn’t count towards our rankings) he still managed to beat two of the strongest men at the sport at FWF on 1/14 to retain the FWF Title. The monsta who has been #3, #4, and #4 again in the past 3 years in the IPR 100 just continues to dominate the indies as he is currently the FWF, JCW, Crossfire, Strong Style Wrestling, and XICW Proving Ground Champion. It appears that his dominance will continue in 2017 as this is his second straight week with a ranking AND once again, he has won the online voting competition with 75 votes as he beat out perennial winner Corey Storm for the top spot. This week’s People’s Champ got a lot of support from everyone at Strong Style Wrestling as the big man showed everyone just how popular he has become.

Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of January 9th, 2017


#1 Modern Day Savages-The Wild Samoan Tournament has taken a big step up in the minds of the official voters as last year the winners of the tournament ended up #4 in the Tag Team Top 5. In 2014 they were #3. This year…they’re #1. Congrats to the Modern Day Savages on their first ranking…which turned out to be a #1 as they defeated Frankie Burbank and Charles Bison in the first round at World Xtreme Wrestling on 1/7, then defeated The Brothers Lockhart in the semifinals, and then defeated Jorel Ganzy & Jaxen Blade in the final to win the 2017 Wild Samoan Tag Team Tournament to go 3-0 for the week. Very impressive and the last two weeks of rankings are showing that 2017 may be very similar to 2016 in that we are getting a lot of “new” teams in the top spot each and every week.

 

 

#2 The Hooligans (Devin & Mason Cutter @BeardedBullys)-It’s week 3 of the Tag Team Top 5 for 2017 (it began right at the end of 2016) and Devin & Mason Cutter have already been ranked TWICE this year putting them in prime position for another amazing run. The 2014 and 2015 Tag Team Top 50 #1’s and current Rockstar Pro, FIP, and Zero1 USA Tag Team Champions defeated Fight or Flight (Kyle Maverick & Nate Wings) in a non-title match at Rockstar Pro on 1/4, then defeated Night Ryderz (Dustin Rayz & Alex Colon) on 1/6, then lost to Davey Vega & Mat Fitchett at AAW on 1/7, and then defeated Drennan & Parrow at Full Impact Pro on 1/8 to retain those titles to go 3-1 for the week. If it wasn’t for their lone loss last week,they likely would have been a lock for the #1 spot, but they’ll have to settle for #2 this week.

 

 

#3 Queen’s Quest (Io Shirai, HZK, & Momo Watanabe)-This three-woman team gets into the Tag Team Top 5 for the very first time after becoming the NEW Artist of Stardom Tag Team Champions last week. The trio defeated Oedo Tai (Kyoko Kimura, Kagetsu & Viper (subbing for Hana Kimura) at Stardom on 1/7 to win the titles and then defeated Yoko Bito, Jungle Kyouna and Mayu Iwatani on 1/8 (non-title) to go 2-0 for the week. Stardom is always very busy (especially in tag team competition) so it’s very likely you’ll be seeing this team again in the rankings in the upcoming weeks and months.

 

 

#4 Strong BJ (Daisuke Sekimoto & Yuji Okabayashi)-One of the most dominant tag teams of 2015 are back with a vengeance this week as they defeated Twin Towers (Kohei Sato & Shuji Ishikawa) on1/2 to win the Big Japan Tag Team Titles and then teamed with Ryuichi Kawakami on 1/4 to defeat Kazumi Kikuta, Takuya Nomura & Yoshihisa Uto to go 2-0 for the week. With this violent team holding a set of very important tag team titles, be on the lookout for them to make waves in the Tag Team Top 5 once again in 2017.

 

#5 The Heatseekers (Sigmon & Russell Elliott)-The NWA United States Tag Team Champions continued their hot streak as they beat a team that was ranked #8 in the 2016 Tag Team Top 50 in the Ugly Ducklings (Lance Lude & Rob Killjoy). This tag team is one of the most consistent teams over the last few years, so as always, keep an eye out for them as they continue to show just how good they really are vs. world class competition where ever they go.

 

People’s Champs. The Police Department (Rod Street & Deputy Dave)-This tag team got on the poll after a HUGE win vs. Roscoe Eat Lisa (the #3 team in the 2016 Tag Team Top 50) at Strong Style Wrestling on 1/7. With 77 votes, The Police Department dominated the online voting competition as they beat out SMS by 22 votes. This is a tag team that has been mentioned a lot in our rankings, but this is the first time they have really broken through into a major spot in the rankings as they are this week’s Peoples Champs (despite their dastardly ways).
