#1 Toni Storm (@tonistorm_)-This WWE Mae Young Classic competitor used that platform to launch herself into stardom (no pun intended) as the SWA Undisputed World Women’s, PROGRESS Women’s, and NEW World of Stardom Champion defeated Kay Lee Ray at Stardom on 9/18, then defeated Yoko Bito the same day to win the 5*Star GP tournament, then defeated Mandy Leon on 9/23 to retain the SWA title, and then defeated Mayu Iwatani on 9/24 to win the World of Stardom title to go 4-0 for the week. Despite some great weeks around the world of independent wrestling, Toni Storm was able to sweep the official voters’ ballots at #1 as she just continues to make a HUGE name for herself all over the planet.
o #2 Aaron Williams (@PlanetWilliams1)-“The Baddest Man Alive” BARELY misses out on a third straight week at #1, but with a #2 ranking, he continues to push his way up this year’s IPR 100. The IWA Mid-South World Champion defeated Alex Colon at Rockstar Pro on 9/20, then defeated Shane Mercer and Devon Moore in a triple threat at IWA Mid-South on 9/21 to retain the title, and then defeated Mance Warner on 9/23 to retain again to go 3-0 for the week. He really beat some GREAT competition and if it wasn’t for Toni Storm’s INSANE week in Japan, Williams would have been sitting at #1 once again. That said, he performed well in the online voting competition as well as he came in third with 24 votes. Williams has really had a hell of a September in the Midwest.
#3 Derek Neal (@DerekNeal91)-“The Real Deal” gets his highest ranking to date as the PWF Tri-State and NEW WWA Kentucky State Champion defeated Randall Shane at WWA on 9/23 in the first round, then defeated Ray Waddell in the semis, and then defeated Krutch in the final to win the Kentucky Classic Tournament to become inaugural champion. Neal is really an unsung talent in the Midwest, but with him starting to rack up titles and a high ranking like this, people are going to start giving him some of the respect that he has deserved for quite some time.

People’s Champ. Rey Fury (@_ReyFury)-Fury gets his second People’s Champ award amidst some very good competition this week.
