Default Best and Worst Title Organization Rankings for HW's

What's your opinion on the most accurate organizations for HW ranking? When you look each title organizations top 15 HW's, two are fairly good, two are horrible. WBC does the best job:
1. Bermane Stivern Real top 10
2. Chris Arreola Real top 10
3. Deontay Wilder Real top 20
4. Bryant Jennings Real top 20
5. Mike Perez Real top 20
6. Derek Chisora Real top 10
7. Manuel Charr Real top 20
8. Tyson Fury Real top 10
9. Tomasz Adamek Real top 10
10. Odlanier Solis Real top 10
11. Lucas Browne Real top 35
12. Fres Oquendo Real top 35
13. Vyacheslav Glazkov Real top 20
14. Artur Szpilka Real top 35
15. Andy Ruiz Real top 35
IBF is close:
1. Kubrat Pulev top 10
2. NOT RATED
3. Ruslan Chagaev top 15
4. Adamek top 10
5. Solis top 10
6. Ustinov (top 25
7. Chisora top 10
8. Thompson top 15
9. Helenius top 15
10. Vyacheslav Glazkov top 20
11. Jennings top 20
12. Wilder top 15
13. Dimitrenko top 25
14. Jonathon Banks top 25
15. Amir Mansour top 25
WBA is horrible:
VACANT
2. Luis Ortiz outside of top 50
3. Chris Arreola top 10
4. Alexander Povetkin top 10
5. Bryant Jennings top 20
6. Fres Oquendo top 35
7. Deontay Wilder top 15
8. Ruslan Chagaev top 15
9. Kaufman outside of top 50
10. Ustinov top 25
11. Alex Leapai top 30
12. Pudar outside of top 50
13. Antonio Tarver ouside of top 50
14. Dereck Chisora top 10
15. Mark De Mori outside of top 50
And so is WBO:
1. Leapai top 30
2. Chisora top 10
3. Ruiz top 35
4. Wilder top 15
5. Stiverne top 10
6. Fury top 10
7. Hammer top 20
8. Perez top 20
9. Helenius top 20
10. Pulev top 10
11. Arreola top 10
12. Denis Boytsov top 35
13. Bryant Jennings top 20
14. Vyacheslav Glazkov top 20
15. Alexander Ustinov top 25
So, my ranking is next to their ranking, but if I have someone ranked in the top 20, then its at least rational that they could be considered a top 10 guy, so it's a legit ranking. If they're in the top 35, I think its arguably rational to have them in the top 15 (outside of the top 10). So, all WBC's top 10 are at least legit debatable top 10ers, and all their top 15 are in the top 35, so all their top 15 are legit. All of IBF's top 10 except Glazkov and Ustinov are legit entries (an they aren't too far off), and the rest of their top 15 is legit and even better than the WBC's. But WBA's highest ranked HW is not legitimately a top 50 guy, only have 4 legit top ten guys in the top 10, another absurd entry (Kaufman in the top 10), and 3 absurd entries in the top 15 out of the top 10. WBO isn't quite as bad, 4 legit entries in top 10, no absolutely absurd entries.

Anyway, the ranking organizations get a lot of flack, but when you look at HW, I'd say WBC and IBF are fairly good, only WBO and especially WBA are horrible. I mean, really, Ortiz, Kaufmann, Pudar, De Mori? It does seem like they either picked at random or money exchanged hands.
