Indy Power Rankings for the Week of August 28th, 2017


#1 KUSHIDA (@KUSHIDA_0904)-The ROH World Television and IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion came back to the indies over the weekend and he came out with his first #1 ranking in quite some time. He went to the UK and defeated Travis Banks at WCPW on 8/22, then defeated Kenny Williams on 8/23 in the first round of the WCPW World Cup Tournament, then defeated Zack Sabre Jr on 8/24 in the quarter finals, then defeated Mike Bailey (non-tournament) on 8/25, then defeated Joseph Conners on 8/26 in the semifinals, and then defeated Will Ospreay in the final to win the tournament to go 6-0 for the week. An undefeated weekend and SIX wins helps KUSHIDA show his dominance yet again.

 

o #2 Rob Van Dam (@therealrvd)-Your eyes do not deceive you! It’s “The Whole F’N Show” in the Indy Power Rankings this week after taking his show to Australia over the weekend. He defeated Syd Parker at Battle Championship Wrestling in Australia on 8/25, then defeated James Grace at All Action Wrestling on 8/26 in the semifinals of the AAW Perth Classic Tournament and then defeated The Shark in the final the same day to win the tournament to go 3-0 for the week. While RVD’s very best days may be behind him, he can still be as good as he once was every once in a while. We’d love to see his name pop up more often in big situations on the indies!

 

#3 Chris Brookes (@OBEYBrookes)-This UK talent had a FANTASTIC weekend as the Fight Club Pro Champion, ½ of the CZW World Tag and RevPro British Tag Team Champions defeated Travis Banks at Fight Club Pro on 8/25 to retain the title, then teamed with Kid Lykos on 8/26 to defeat The Gentleman’s Club (Chuck Taylor & Orange Cassidy) and then defeated Trent Seven at Progress on 8/27 to go 3-0 for the week. If you take a look at his wins over the weekend, they were BIG. Brookes is perhaps more known for tag team wrestling in recent months, but his wins speak for themselves when given the opportunity in singles competition.

 

 

 

#4 FUMA-It’s the first ranking for FUMA as he teamed with Isami Kodaka, Ryuichi Sekine and Ryota Nakatsu at Basara on 8/24 to defeat GUNSO, KABUKI KID, Naoki Tanizaki and brother YASSHI, then defeated Takato Nakano on 8/26, then teamed with Yasu Urano on 8/27 to defeat Takumi Tsukamoto and Takato Nakano in the semis and then again to beat Ryota Nakatsu and SAGAT in the final to win the Lottery Shuffle Tag Tournament to go 4-0 for the week. It was a tremendous weekend to get him into the Top 10, but the question now is, can he build on this ranking?

 
#5 Pete Dunne (@petedunneyxb)-Despite being the WWE UK Champion, Dunne still works a ton of indies and STILL get himself ranked consistently. The Attack! 24/7, Destiny World Wrestling and Progress Champion; defeated Eddie Dennis, Lee Hunter, Millie McKenzie, Charli Evans, Jordan Devlin, Martina The Session Moth & Jack Sexsmith in an eight-way at Fight Club Pro on 8/26 and then teamed with Travis Banks at Progress on 8/27 to defeat Jimmy Havoc & Mark Haskins to go 2-0 for the week. Dunne is such a high profile talent now that when he picks up a couple of wins on the indies, he’s inevitably going to be ranked.
 
#6 Chet Sterling
 
#7 Yasu Urano
 
#8 Krixus
 
#9 Dale Patricks
 
#10 Will Ospreay
 
People’s Champ. Dynamite Dillen-The WCWO Outlaw Heavyweight Champion wins the online voting competition for a second straight week this week. He defeated Pogo by DQ on 8/25 to retain the title and then beat TJ Kemp in a No DQ Match on 8/26 to retain the title again and his fans and supporters once again took care of the rest as he EASILY won this week’s online voting competition. The back-to-back People’s Champ is absolutely on fire right now. You can give a like to Dillen’s Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/Dynamite-Dillen-1405330366432225/

Indy Power Rankings for the Week of August 21st, 2017


#1 Tyler Colton (@TYLERCOLTONWPG)-Voting was ALL OVER THE PLACE this, but just like he was #1 last week, the CWE Champion goes back-to-back after THREE PERFECT weeks at Canadian Wrestling’s Elite. He began this week’s unblemished week as he defeated Silas Young on 8/14 to retain the title, then teamed with Alex Anthony, Brian Rich & The Mercenary on 8/15 to defeat Blondturage (Kute Kody & Tasty Travis), Chase Owens & Jacob Creed, then defeated Adam Knight in a bunkhouse brawl on 8/18 to retain the title, and then defeated Kaito Kiyomiya on 8/19 to retain again to go 4-0 for the week. Colton was absolutely unstoppable on the 21-day tour of Canada for CWE. Now the question is…when will his next opportunity to be to continue to add to his impressive 2017 résumé?

 

o #2 John Rare-It’s not often you see this HARDCORE competitor ranked, but it’s even less frequent that you see him ranked for something other than death matches! He bucked the trend this week as competed in and WON the 2017 IWA Deep South Soft Core Cup. He teamed with Keylo Green on 8/19 in the First Round to defeat Hermit Crab & Jay Impact in a Softcore Boards Match, then beat Boriss Dukkee in a Last Man Standing Semi-Final, and then won the tournament as he beat Jeff Hart, Keylo Green, and Terry Houston in a 5000 Mega Blocks Massacre Final. His 3-0 record for the week gets him a #2 ranking in this week’s Top 10.

 

#3 Hideki Suzuki-The Big Japan Pro Wrestling Strong World Heavyweight Champion gets into the Top 10 after a stellar week as he defeated Takuya Nomura at BJW on 8/14 (non-title) then teamed with Shinjiro Otani at Zero1 on 8/17 to defeat TARU and Voodoo Mask, then defeated Daichi Hashimoto on 8/19 at Big Japan to retain the title, and then defeated Yoshikazu Yokoyama at Zero1 on 8/20 to go 4-0 for the week. Suzuki hasn’t been ranked frequently in the history of the rankings, but with a week like this it was impossible to deny him from a high spot in the Top 10.

 

 

 

#4 Maya Yukihi-NINE matches for Maya Yukihi equates to a spot in the Top 10. While it wasn’t a perfect week, it was still VERY GOOD as she teamed with Tsukasa Fujimoto at Ice Ribbon on 8/15 to defeat Akane Fujita and Maruko Nagasaki, then teamed with Risa Sera the same day to defeat Mochi Miyagi and Akane Fujita, then defeated Miyako Matsumoto on 8/16, then teamed with Kyuri the same day to defeat Ibuki Hoshi and Tequila Saya, then defeated Nori DATE, then teamed with Matsuya Uno on 8/17 to lose to Hana DATE and Nao DATE, then teamed with Maruko Nagasaki the same day to lose a three-way to Mochi Miyagi and Hamuko Hoshi, then teamed with Akane Fujita on 8/19 to defeat Maika Ozaki and Risa Sera, and then teamd with Mayumi Ozaki at Oz Academy on 8/20 to defeat Sonoko Kato and Shoko Sekiguchi to go 7-2 for the week.

 
#5 William Huckaby (@WAHuckaby)-The Incredible HUCK gets into the Indy Power Rankings this week with a few wins that could have netted him a #1 ranking on many other weeks. The World Wrestling Grand Prix Champion defeated Royal Money at Dojo Wars on 8/16 to retain the title, then defeated Zaiden Kayne at Mega Pro Wrestling on 8/18, and then defeated Stumpy at NAPW on 8/19 to go 3-0 for the week. Huckaby has frequented the Tag Team Top 5, but he hasn’t been seen in the singles rankings much. With momentum now on his side, it’s entirely possible that you’ll see more of Huckaby in the Top 10 going forward.
 
#6 Zack Gibson
 
#7 Homeless Jimmy
 
#8 Tommy Lee Curtis
 
#9 Shane Sabre
 
#10 Darius Lockhart
 
People’s Champ. Dynamite Dillen-The NEW WCWO Outlaw Heavyweight Champion wins the online voting competition in a very competitive battle as he beat out Jeff X for the top spot in the fan vote, 82-79. He defeated Pogo on 8/18 to win the title and his fans and supporters took care of the rest.
