Better Late Than Never: Indy Power Rankings for Feb. 17th, 2014

Indy Power Rankings for the Week of February 17th, 2014


1.       Christian Rose-The DREAMWAVE Champion extended his 2 week record to 6-0 after 2 more victories this week. While his numbers in the online poll weren’t huge, the official voters came through for him. A victory over Krotch at a little show in Donahue, IA and a victory over 1/3 of the #3 ranked White America-Adam Gooch at SNPW helps Rose get his 2nd ever #1 ranking. Interestingly enough, that’s 5 straight weeks at #1 for Matt Cage, Christian Rose, and Shane Hollister…3 men who are ultimately tied together based on their region and travel. He came in 4th on the online poll.

2.       JT Dunn-Much like Christian Rose last week, “The Juice” had quite possibly the best single week of anyone in the Top 10. With victories over last week’s #1 Matt Cage, last week’s Tag Team #1 Kimber Lee (in a 3 out of 5 falls match), and then a tag team victory over The Hooligans (all at Beyond Wrestling), it was a week to remember for the young star. Not only that, his dream match was signed as he will take on Chris Hero next month. You can call him “The People’s Champ” this week after dominating the online poll for 1st place after more than 50 votes. Perhaps #1 is in his near future?


3.       Ricochet-You would think 7-0 over the span of 2 weeks would earn Ricochet an EASY #1 ranking, but again, we had heavy competition this week among the voters. Not only that, before the online poll took place, he was slotted at #2 before the heavy support for JT Dunn knocked him down one spot. While his 7 wins at Dragon Gate were impressive, it may have been the lack of singles victories that kept him from the top spot this week. #5 in the online poll.


4.       Uhaa Nation-Much like Ricochet, “The One Man Nation” was dominant over the last 2 weeks at Dragon Gate in Japan. A 7-1 record jumps Uhaa right into the Top 10 after a 2-0 record this week. Unlike Ricochet, he did have a singles win recently to support his case for a top spot. The fans in the online poll, however, were not convinced of the big man’s dominance. He came in 9th in the online poll.


5.       Drew Gulak-After suffering a string of losses, this week was the week that the CZW World Champion shined as he defeated John Silver, Alex Reynolds, and Papadon in a 4 Way Iron Man Match at NYWC and then followed that up with a HUGE submission victory over Kevin Steen at Beyond Wrestling. Perhaps more than anyone, he was a benefactor of the new online poll. The former #1 in the Indy Power Rankings came in 2nd in the poll.

6.       Michael Elgin-2 big wins for a guy like Michael Elgin, last year’s #1 in the IPR 100, and multiple time #1 in the Indy Power Rankings would usually land him at #1. Once again, much like last week, this was not your typical week. This week he managed to defeat Shynron and Chris Dickinson & Jaka (by DQ) at Beyond Wrestling to secure a spot in the Top 10. He came in 7th in the online poll.


7.       Caleb Konley-The PWX Heavyweight/WrestleForce Champion and former #1 in the Indy Power Rankings attempted to add more title to his collection vs. Matt Hardy over the weekend. While he did retain the PWX Title vs. Cedric Alexander, he came up short in his bid for the WrestleCade title due to interference. He finished the weekend at 1-0-1 but most importantly, he’s still a double champion. He came in 8th in the online voting.


8.       Jake Dirden-The fans & supporters of the Dynamo Pro Champion would not let him be denied this week. While he was close to be on the outside looking in on the official voters’ polls, the online poll pushed him up to the #8 spot this week. Dirden, a man who rarely loses, this week picked up a tag team victory at SICW but it was his overall body of work that got him noticed and ranked. He came in 3rd in the online poll with close to 40 votes.


9.       Will White/Bill Black-Give credit to one of the strangest gimmicks to ever come down the wrestling pike…it earned him the Squared Circle Live Adrenaline Cup for 2014. After 2 big victories in 4 Way Matches, this enigma of gimmicks earned himself a ranking. It was an impressive showing for this interesting character. He came in 10th in the online poll.


10.    Arik Royal-The CWF Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Champion now holds the record for longest reigning champion in that promotion of all time. He earned that distinction with a victory over former champion Corey Edsel. Royal, a former #1 in the Indy Power Rankings, has held that title since 12/29/12! He came in 6th in the online poll.


1st Honorable Mention. James Anthony-2-0 and NEW AIWF Cruiserweight Champion.

Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of February 17th, 2014

1.       Los Ben Dejos (Eddie Rios & Jay Cruz)-The NEW PWX Tag Team Champions had one hell of a weekend. After winning the Tag Team Titles in a Three on Two Handicap Match vs. The Worst Case Scenario & Tommy Thomas. They then defeated The Worst Case Scenario again in straight up tag team competition to retain the titles. These Dudleyville trainees are on fire right now with their first ever #1 ranking. 3rd in the online poll.


2.       Team IOU (Kerry Awful & Nick Iggy)-After winning the online poll and getting an honorable mention last week, they took that momentum down to NWA SAW in Millersville, TN where they defeated Mayhem to win the Southern Tag Team Titles. They are 3-1 overall the last 2 weeks and 3-0 in straight up tag team matches. With shows as a team almost every single week, it’s going to be impossible to keep them out of the #1 spot for much longer. 1st in the online poll for the 2nd straight week.

3.       PPRay (Peter Avalon & Ray Rosas)-After being ranked #2 last week, they fall slightly to the #3 spot after teaming with Joey Ryan to win a 6 Man Tag Team Match vs. The Fallen Empire & Cedric the Hitman at AWS. They continue to dominate most California indies and so the question remains, can they move that success over to PWG as well? A #1 ranking could be on the horizon in 2014 for this young tag team.

4.       Country Jacked (Adam Page & Corey Hollis)-The former #1 in the Tag Team Top 5 teamed up once again this week to defeat “Eddie and The Edwards” (Roderick Strong & Trent ?) in a big tag team match on IPPV. They are still undefeated as a tag team. Their inactivity as a team recently is likely the only thing that hurt their ranking this week.

5.       The Hooligans (Devin & Mason Cutter)-What more can be said of these Bearded Bullies? They dominated 2013 and then struggled a bit in 2014, but that hasn’t slowed them down at all. With 7 matches over the last 2 weeks and a record of 4-3 overall (2-1 this week), they continue to be one of the most prominent tag teams in the U.S. Their only loss this week at Beyond Wrestling was vs. Juicy Product. #4 in the online poll.


1st Honorable Mention. Black Hand Warriors (Michael Magnuson & David Delorean)-Retained the WLW Tag Team Titles. 2nd in the online poll.
