Indy Power Rankings for the Week of November 25th, 2013
1. Matt Tremont–“The Bulldozer” scores his first ever #1 ranking! This week he defeated Joey Janela at OnPoint Wrestling to run his 2 week total to 4-0 (with a win in Carnage Cup 9 last week). According to cagematch.net and wrestlingdata.com, he has not lost since August 10th of 2013. Looks like 8 straight for the big man! Crucial matches on 12/6 and 12/14 will be huge as to his placement in the IPR 100.
2. Caleb Konley-The PWX Heavyweight Champion gets his highest ranking to date as he successfully defended his title on back to back nights. “The Midnight Son” first defeated Tony Nese on 11/22 at PWX Climbing the Ladder, then defeated Adam Page, Cedric Alexander, and Corey Hollis in a Ladder Match to retain the title. He’s now won 3 out of his last 4 matches.
3. Aaron Williams-The Rockstar Pro Champion is continuing to rack up wins as he has now grabbed his highest ranking to date! This week he defeated Jon Murray at Rockstar Pro before travelling to D1W in Charlestown, IN where he teamed with Ron Mathis to defeat Big Dusty & Matt Atreya to win the D1W Tag Team Titles. Now a double champion, Aaron Williams doesn’t look to be slowing down any time soon with 4 wins in the last 2 weeks.
4. Michael BS Hayes-1/2 of the OVW Southern Tag Team Champions flew up the Indy Power Rankings this week after having picked up his 10th straight win (according to wrestlingdata.com). His last loss was a tag team match on 10/16/13. Impressive string of victories for the primarily tag team wrestler.
5. Marshe Rockett-All he does is win. A 2-0 weekend for the DREAMWAVE Alternative Champion adds to his already impressive 8 match win streak. According to wrestlingdata.com, his last loss was in the DREAMWAVE Good as Gold Battle Royal on 9/14/13. This week he defeated M.T.W. DaCobra at RPW and Mr. Bank$ to run his streak to 10 wins.
6. Hallowicked-The NEW Wrestlejam Champion made a big impact this week with his wins at Wrestlejam and Wrestling is Respect. His Wrestlejam Tournament victory and title win was impressive and somewhat surprising. Speaking of surprises, his introduction as Drew Gulak’s mystery partner in the win over Green Ant and Fire Ant at Wrestling is Respect was slightly surprising as well. Can Hallowicked maintain this new found success?
7. Matt Taven-The ROH TV Champion travelled to TRP where he defeated Biff Busick and then followed that up with a victory at LSP over Vinny Marseglia to go 2-0 on the weekend. Taven has been on fire throughout 2013 and the question now remains…will he still hold the ROH TV title entering 2014?
8. Isys Ephex-The 2CW Heavyweight Champion did what he does best when 2CW shows roll around; he won. On this occasion, he won twice. On 11/22 he defeated Jason Axe and then followed that up on 11/23 with a victory vs. Colin Delaney. That is 7 straight wins and 10 successful title defenses for the 2CW Champion.
9. Dojo Bros (Roderick Strong & Eddie Edwards)-A BIG 2-0 weekend for The Dojo Bros gets them in the top 10 for the very first time. While they haven’t scored a lot of wins as a team, they’ve been impressive time and time again together. This week, it was their victories over Kevin Graham & Punisher VanSlyke (now the 2CW Tag Team Champions) and last week’s #5 The Young Bucks that gets them in.
10. Shane Hollister-The AAW Heavyweight Champion returns to the Indy Power Rankings after a couple of weeks off. This time, he gets in with a big 6 man tag team victory at SCW as he teamed with Marek Brave and Vader (yes, THAT Vader) to defeat Mallaki Matthews, Christian Rose, and Tyler Priegel. With big AAW shows, “The Shug” is looking to move up the rankings once again.
