UWA ELITE POWER RANKINGS (APRIL 2017)

SINGLES RANKINGS

#1 - ARCHADIA (LAST MONTH: #1)
UWA Elite Champion

It was a real test for the champion against Brandon the Bull at Luck of the Draw, as the challenger offered a tenacious effort. The champion weathered a monumental storm, and Archadia's experience and intense desire to remain "the man" eventually prevailed after a flurry of corner and springboard dropkicks to the head of the Bull. Up next for Archadia: the captaincy of Team UWA Elite on May 6th.


#2 - BOWES (LAST MONTH: #5)
UWA Elite Iron Man Champion

Bowes continues to make the case that he is the most dominant Iron Man Champion of all time with a vicious title defense against Jeff Cannonball. The brutal fight was capped off by an earth-shaking piledriver by The Wretched, but Bowes was not done. As Bowes' nemesis (and Cannonball's former partner) Brandon Kirk watched in horror, The Wretched One delivered a sickening top-rope elbow drop to a chair draped around Cannonball's neck. This prompted Kirk to propose a Chairs Match on May 6th.




#3 - KING TEK (LAST MONTH: #2)
UWA Elite iChampion

Another day, another dollar, another title defense for the Fighting King. No one could have expected King Tek's random opponent at Luck of the Draw to be "Lucky" Leo Zukko, a tag-team specialist. But Zukko's unorthodox demeanor and offense kept the iChampion off-kilter for much of the contest, until Tek scored a top-rope Poisonrana followed by a Teknicality for the victory.




#4 - DRAKE CHAMBERS (LAST MONTH: #4)
Golden Ticket Holder

In what has become the most arduous season for a Golden Ticket holder in UWA Elite history, The Dragonborn came out of the blocks firing against the dangerous Michael Massacre, starting the match with a brutal dropkick into the corner that sent "The American Horror" reeling. The match was on fire from bell to bell, with Chambers and Massacre trading thunderous blows throughout. Ultimately, Drake Chambers' momentum won the day, and 2 months removed from his season being in doubt, Chambers might just be on the hottest streak of his career.





#5 - JOEY ADAMS (LAST MONTH: #9)

There are only 3 UWA Elite AllStarz with 3 clean victories in a row right now - UWA Elite Champion Archadia, iChampion King Tek, and "The Anti-Hero" Joey Adams. His latest might be his most impressive of 2017 - a triple-threat triumph over Kyle the Beast (KTB) and Jordan Oliver. After the match, a smug Joey Adams rubbed the victory in KTB's face - it shall remain to be seen if that will come back to bite him.

#6 - BRANDON KIRK (LAST MONTH: #6)

"The Rogue" went to battle against Matt Vertigo in a clash to keep momentum alive for both men. While Vertigo wanted a victory to stay on the right track following his runner-up performance in the New Blood Tournament, Kirk virtually HAD to win to build up to his impending Chairs Match with Bowes. This implicit need to win - plus a new, devastating discus lariat - propelled Brandon Kirk to another win, and towards his brutal showdown with Bowes on May 6th.



#7BRANDON THE BULL (LAST MONTH: #3)

In all honesty, we did not want to move Brandon the Bull down this far in the power rankings - it's just that everyone above him on the list claimed victory at Luck of the Draw. But in defeat, Brandon may have delivered one of his finest performances as a professional wrestler. He looked dominant, and at times indestructible. And for a young wrestler many thought would be over-matched, Archadia had to truly work to defeat him. BTB will have another day in the sun.


#8 - MAGIC (LAST MONTH: #10)

The Icon told the UWA Elite Army that if he didn't win a championship by September (his 35th anniversary in pro wrestling), he would retire. While Magic didn't get a championship match at Luck of the Draw, he certainly made the most of his opportunity. Not only did he win a Fatal Four-Way Elimination Match, he pinned all three of his opponents in the process. If this is a sign of things to come, then Magic may just achieve his goal.

#9 - KYLE "THE BEAST" WINANT  (LAST MONTH: #7)

KTB is certainly getting accustomed to the "hard-luck" loss lately. This month, it came at the hands of Joey Adams. Although Kyle dominated a majority of their triple threat match and awed the UWA Elite Army with his physical dominance, "The Anti-Hero" was there to swipe the pinfall away from KTB at the end of the match. Afterwards, Adams was quick to mock KTB about the outcome, prompting us to ask - is it really a wise idea to provoke the Beast?


#10 - CYPRESS (LAST MONTH: NR)

What a shock it was for Cypress to make his return to the UWA Elite roster at Luck of the Draw, claiming a victory over "The Roughneck" Clay Sawyer courtesy of his new Dempsey Kick. The South Side Pit Bull returned with an impact, and as a result, this month's power rankings feature two active UWA Elite Hall of Famers.




TAG TEAM RANKINGS

#1 - THE BROTEIN PACK (LAST MONTH: #1)
UWA Elite Tag Team Champions

The BROtein Pack just keeps breaking their own PRs month after month. At Luck of the Draw, C-Way and TJ took on the random-but-entertaining duo of Lukas Finnegan and Mikey Pacifica. Past the BROtein Pack, the tag division is a logjam. Who will separate themselves to step up to the BTP?

#2 - SWAG MEAN (LAST MONTH: #2)

For the first time since the summer of 2013, Vin Grayson and Robbie Roller competed as a tag team - and were victorious. Three former UWA Elite Champions participated in Swag Mean vs. Designated Hitters, and despite the ferocious beating that Hedges and Dillinger put on Grayson. Controversy aside (more on that later), Swag Mean returns with a win.

#3 - THE DESIGNATED HITTERS (LAST MONTH: #4)

Yes, DH lost at Luck of the Draw, but technically - did they? The legal man, Hedges, was drawn out of the ring by the arrival of the Destined Ones, and the referee counted the wrong man's shoulders (Cory Dillinger) down for the 3-count. Of course, DH took their pound of flesh earlier in the evening by severely injuring Kid Christian's shoulder, making him unable to compete.

#4 - THE DESTINED ONES (LAST MONTH: #3)

Are the Destined Ones simply "destined" to end before they truly begin? Kid Christian's shoulder injury required a post-show MRI, and until the results are conclusive, it appears Jordan Oliver may be on his own. Jordan did put on a valiant effort in a triple threat match against Joey Adams and KTB, but ultimately fell short. Will the Destined Ones find revenge against DH, or is this the end?

#5 - THE ATLANTIC CITY SCOUNDRELS (LAST MONTH: #5)

Dominic Truax may have missed Luck of the Draw but Leo Zukko hit the jackpot earning a shot at King Tek and the UWA Elite iChampionship. Even though Zukko came up short he made a huge impression on the UWA Elite Army.
