Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of April 21st, 2014

 Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of April 21st, 2014

 TeamIOU4

1. Team IOU (Kerry Awful & Nick Iggy)-The NWA Southern Tag Team Champions get the record! Team IOU have now broken the record with 4 #1 rankings in the Tag Team Top 5. They do it on the strength of victories vs. Shooting Impact at NWA SAW on 4/18 and Frank Wyatt & Alexandre Rudolph on 4/19 at Beyond Wrestling. #2 in the online poll with 128 votes. 

2. The Hooligans (Devin & Mason Cutter)-The PGP and Zero-1 USA Tag Team Champions return to the Top 5 after going 2-0 over the weekend with wins vs. Alexandre Rudolph and Frank Wyatt at PGP on 4/19 and vs. Matt Cage and Mallaki Matthews at Beyond Wrestling on 4/20. They have won 9 of their last 11 matches. It was just announced that in July they will finally take on the Young Bucks. They’re getting some great momentum heading into that match at St. Louis Anarchy. #4 in the online poll with 25 votes.

3. The Viking War Party (Alexandre Rudolph & Jake Parnell)-While they do operate under The Freebird Rule (Frank Wyatt being the 3rd member of the Viking War Party), it’s this unit that has been turning heads recently. The SNPW Tag Team Champions teamed with their 3rd member in Frank Wyatt at Beyond Wrestling’s Sleeper Cell to defeat Jordynne Grace, JJ Garrett, and Mikey. They have now won 3 straight matches as a team.

4. Los Ben Dejos (Jay Rios & Jay Cruz)-The PWX Tag Team Champions returned to a very safe territory where they have dominated in recent months. Over the weekend they defeated Country Jacked (Corey Hollis & Adam Page) on 4/18 and The Worst Case Scenario and The Sin City Saints in a 3 Way on 4/19 to retain the titles. They have won 4 straight matches at PWX. If they can transfer some of that success to some of their upcoming shows in the Illinois area, they’ll be a force to reckon with.

5. The Unholy Alliance (Mikey Whipwreck & Tajiri)-The Tag Team Top 5 took a trip down memory lane and got nostalgic this week as the two ECW greats defeated OI4K (Dave & Jake Crist) at 2CW on 4/18 and followed that up with a win vs. AR Fox and Rich Swann at 2CW on 4/19 to go 2-0 as a team on the weekend. We can only hope that we’ll get to see more of them together in 2014. If not, it was fun while it lasted. #5 in the online poll with 15 votes.

Honorable Mention. The Normals (Buzz Bloodsaw & Chance Demas)-The People’s Champs this week with 175 votes in the online poll after defeating Da House Party on 4/19 to retain the PWA Tag Team Titles.

Indy Power Rankings for the Week of April 21st, 2014

Indy Power Rankings for the Week of April 21st, 2014

 Maximus2

1. Melvin Maximus-Finally “the Rodney Dangerfield of the Indy Power Rankings” gets his respect again! Oddly enough he gets voted in at #1 on a slower week where he only wrestled (and won) one match.  While there were certainly a lot of other worthy contenders, every single “official voter” had the OVW TV Champion at or near #1 on their ballot. It truly has been a “Marvelous” run for the champ after 31 straight wins. Continue reading

Scott’s Raw Recap 4/21/14

WhiteRawMonday Night Raw

April 21, 2014

Baltimore, Maryland

We go back to last Monday to start when the Shield was beaten down by 11 guys, and then the great Evolution reformed. We then head into the arena where we are joined by the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, who was off last week due to being on his honeymoon. In fact his wife Brie is in the ring. This was to allow Brie to celebrate on camera without wrecking the end of Wrestlemania, in case there’s a divorce. We don’t even Continue reading
