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.
