AEW Weekly Rankings Released
One of the better ideas that All Elite Wrestling have stuck with is their ranking system. Every Wednesday, we get the official top 5 rankings for the Men, Women and Tag Team Divisions, to view who is on top. This takes into account both their 2020 rankings and their lifetime records within AEW.
Le Champion Still #1 In The Men’s Division
Despite only having had one singles match in 2020, and that being a loss, Chris Jericho is still the number one man in AEW. His overall record is still 11-3-1, which is just about as good as it gets, especially with the caliber of his victories over men like Hangman Page, Cody, Kenny Omega and more. Coming in at #2 is MJF, with a 3-0 record in 2020 as he continues to get better. MJF is one of the brightest stars in AEW, and it is only a matter of time before he gets his chance to be the AEW Champion, with his 8-1 record overall. Cody ranks in just below MJF at #3, but is a non-factor with the AEW Championship due to his loss to Chris Jericho meaning he can’t challenge for it. Jake Hager is at #4 as his undefeated ways continue, and Kenny Omega is at #5 with his 1-0 singles record in 2020 and a 17-6 overall record, but he is more focused on the tag team division.
Chris Jericho will get a rematch before anyone else, it’s just a matter of when it happens.
Dark Order Creep Closer To The AEW Tag Team Championships
While Kenny Omega is #5 in the singles division, he is one half of the AEW Tag Team Champions with Hangman Page. Their biggest contender is Evil Uno & Stu Greyson of Dark Order. With The Exalted One revealed and a 5-0 record in 2020, they are set for their biggest run yet. The Young Bucks are close behind with a 2-2 record, SCU at 2-3 in the #3 slot, Lucha Bros at #4 with 1-2 and Best Friends climbing up with a solid 3-3 record in 2020.
Dark Order are the clear next contenders, with few able to stand up to them as they reveal their true power.
Hikaru Shida Has Her Eyes On Nyla Rose
Nyla Rose has a firm grip on the AEW Women’s Championship since unseating Riho as champion, and it will take a lot to take her down. Right now the top contender is Hikaru Shida, who has been picking up win after win in AEW, with a 5-1 record in 2020. #2 is Kris Statlander, who failed to unseat Nyla at Revolution, but gave her the fight of her life in the process. Yuka Sakazaki is a surprise at #3 with her 1-1 record in 2020, and only 1-4 overall. Britt Baker is at #4, which surely the fans will hear all about, but she’s fine without a title, because she’s a dentist. Finally former champion Riho has fallen all the way to #5, as she has been in a slump, even dropping a match to Penelope Ford on AEW Dark. Bea Priestley has not ranked, but this is likely due to her being stuck in the UK and not being able to appear for AEW, as she seemed set as a next contender.
I feel the most likely route here is a three way with Nyla Rose, Hikaru Shida & Kris Statlander, as it could take more than one woman to stop Rose.
