What’s better for your momentum than winning a championship? Winning a championship and getting engaged in the center of the ring!
It’s the 12/12/19 edition of The Chairshot Power Rankings!
Each week, I bring you my Power Rankings in Top 5 form. What can you measure with a “Power Ranking?” The answer is simple: power. Power here is defined as momentum, who got the big wins, and who is on an upward trajectory after this week. Each week is different, as the landscape of professional wrestling (and sports entertainment) can change in an instant. Thus, the weekly rankings will change with it.
Greg DeMarco’s Power Rankings: week of 12/5/2019 – 12/11/2019
Missing The Cut
- Miranda Morales – Yes, the cohost of the Greg DeMarco Show and The #Miranda Show makes the list. Why? Because she’s got a new shirt available! Get your own Queen Of Soft Style shirt today at our Pro Wrestling Tees store!
- Rich Swann – Rapid Delivery Pete picked up a big win in a tornado tag team match on Impact Wrestling and did so in impressive fashion, going at it alone for most of the match after Willie Mack was hurt.
- Finn Balor – Finn Balor beat Keith Lee and Tommaso Ciampa to become the #1 contender for Adam Cole’s NXT Championship. But in all honesty, he should have.
Missing The Cut is listed in no particular order.
5. The Revival
Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder, The Revival, or as I like to call them “the best tag team walking God’s green earth,” won a four-way to become the #1 contenders to New Day’s Smackdown Tag Team Championships. That match happens at WWE TLC, and is sure to deliver? Depending on the forward plans for New Day, The Revival could once again be tag team champions on Brand Blue.
4. Juice Robinson & David Finlay
As New Japan gears up for Wrestle Kingdom, the tag team contenders are determined through the New Japan World Tag League. After winning the League for two straight years, EVIL and Sanada were bested by the team of Juice Robinson & David Finlay, giving us a fresh match-up for the IWGP Tag Team Championships at the Tokyo Dome.
3. The Young Bucks
The Brothers Jackson, Matt and Nick, got a big win on AEW over Santana and Ortiz–in a Street Fight–to become the #1 Contenders to Frankie Kazarian & Scorpio Sky, and will challenge for the AEW Tag Team Championships next week. That is a money match that is setting up to be a true Wednesday Night Wars battle on December 18.
2. Seth Rollins
The Architect is back, baby! Seth Rollins perfectly orchestrated a heel turn that meant something, had a false stop in the middle, and finally got paid off on Monday’s Raw. He capped it off with a scathing heel promo, but this was really a culmination. Adding the AOP just makes it better, as they are some of the most believable muscle you can find in WWE.
1. Angel Garza
There’s been an upswell of support for Angel Garza since the NXT Breakout Tournament. He is full of that “it factor” that you simply have to be born with. He pulled off his biggest victory yet, beating Lio Rush on Wednesday’s edition of WWE NXT, then getting engaged to the one person in the arena who might be more beautiful than he is. (Oh wait, Adam Cole was there…)
