2014 Tag Team Top 50 Update

IMG_0004-0.PNG

We’ve got about 3 months left in 2014 so we thought we’d go ahead and release the Tag Team Top 50 update for anyone who’s interested. THIS WILL BE THE LAST UPDATE BEFORE THE OFFICIAL TAG TEAM TOP 50 IS RELEASED AT THE END OF THE YEAR. Below, at this point, is the Tag Team Top 50, which for those of you who are unfamiliar, is a collection of 50 of the best tag teams based on their previous rankings throughout the year to date. Their rankings in the Tag Team Top 50 are 100% based on where they have been ranked in the Tag Team Top 5 this year. This is not our opinion of who the best tag teams in the world are based on who we think has the best matches, but again, just a mathematical compilation of how well they’ve done this year based on the 3 major criteria that we use to rank them on a weekly basis:

1. Win-loss record for the week & overall

2. Strength of opponents for the week

3. Overall public perception of the wrestler in question (i.e. The Young Bucks have a stronger following than a regional tag team who most people have never heard of)

*For anyone wondering where “insert tag team’s name” are on the list…that tag team is likely outside of the Top 50 right now. We have a list of literally close to 250 independent wrestling tag teams who have either been ranked or voted for this year and of course almost 200 of them did not make this list of 50. With 3 months left, they still have time to get in! All it takes is a high ranking or two to sneak onto the list. Also, there are some 3 man teams on this list so if you see a team listed more than once, they have likely teamed (and been successful) under more than one tag team combination.

Here’s the Tag Team Top 50 Update:

1. The Hooligans (Devin & Mason Cutter)

2. Juicy Product (JT Dunn & David Starr)

3. Team IOU (Kerry Awful & Nick Iggy)

4. reDRagon (Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish)

5. OI4K (Dave & Jake Crist)

6. Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson)

9. London Riots (Rob Lynch & James Davis)

10. Michael Hayes & Mohamad Ali Vaez

11. The Throwbacks (Dasher Hatfield & Mark Angelosetti)

12. Bravado Bros (Harlem & Lancelot Bravado)

13. Los Ben Dejos/Team Lucha (Eddie Rios & Jay Cruz)

14. The Time Splitters (Alex Shelley & KUSHIDA)

15. World’s Cutest Tag Team (Joey Ryan & Candice LeRae)

16. The Jollyville Fuck-Its (Russ Myers & T-Money)

17. Country Jacked (Corey Hollis & Adam Page)

2014 IPR 100 Update

We’ve got about 3 months left in 2014 so we thought we’d go ahead and release the IPR 2014 update for anyone who’s interested. THIS WILL BE THE LAST UPDATE BEFORE THE OFFICIAL IPR 100 IS RELEASED AT THE END OF THE YEAR. Below, at this point, is the IPR 100, which for those of you who are unfamiliar, is a collection of 100 independent wrestlers based on their previous rankings throughout the year to date. Their rankings in the IPR 100 are 100% based on where they have been ranked in the Indy Power Rankings this year. This is not our opinion of who the best wrestlers (or “workers”)in the world are based on who we think has the best matches, but again, just a mathematical compilation of how well they’ve done this year based on the 3 major criteria that we use to rank wrestlers on a weekly basis:

1. Win-loss record for the week & overall

2. Strength of opponents for the week

3. Overall public perception of the wrestler in question (i.e. Chris Hero has a stronger following than a regional independent wrestler who most people have never heard of)

*For anyone wondering where “insert wrestler’s name” is on the list…that person is likely outside of the Top 100 right now. We have a list of literally close to 500 independent wrestlers who have either been ranked or voted for this year and of course almost 400 of them did not make this list of 100.

IMG_0164.JPG

OFF BROADWAY MUSIC VENUE Results

-Brandon Aarons & Mike Outlaw d. “The Madman” Paco Gonzalez & “The New Hotness” Danny Adams; miscommunication between Gonzalez and Adams led to Outlaw getting the pinfall on Paco after the Macho Elbow (8:16).
