2017 IPR 100 Mid-Year Update

It’s the middle of the year so it’s that time again! Below is the 2017 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 so far. This is not our opinion of who the best wrestlers (or “workers”) in the world are based on who we think had the best matches, nor is it a list of names we sat down and collected at the end of the year. Rather, this is a mathematical compilation of how well these talents have done this year so far based on their rankings throughout the year and 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. Zack Sabre Jr. has a stronger following than a regional independent wrestler who most people have never heard of)

The Tag Team Top 5 is a separate list (Tag Team Top 50) so look for that to come out shortly. In 2017, we have ranked/mentioned 426 wrestlers in singles so far. Out of those 426 wrestlers, this list of 100 were the cream of the crop as far as how good their year was in terms of the 3 criteria we rank independent wrestlers based on.
