With AEW making it’s TV debut last night on TNT, we’re kicking off the brand new AEW Top 10 feature!
Each week, we’ll be ranking the top 10 wrestlers and teams in AEW, based on wins and losses and title matches on AEW Dynamite and PPVs. Weekly scores depreciate, so, for example a win this week is worth more than a win a month ago.
New AEW Women’s Champion Riho is the first AEW wrestler to score #1. Riho defeated #5 Nyla Rose last night to be crowned the first ever AEW Women’s Champion. Riho also scored big wins at All Out, Fyter Fest, and Fight for the Fallen. Rose was also coming off a big All Out victory.
#2 this week is Adam Page, who tapped out to #10, the Bastard Pac, on last night’s AEW Dynamite. Page fought his way to an AEW World Title match, but came up short to #3 Chris Jericho at All Out. This may be the beginning of a losing streak for Page. Meanwhile, champ Jericho has only wrestled at three AEW events so far, but he’s undefeated.
Coming in at #4 is Cody, who wrestled in the first AEW television match last night with a win over Sammy Guevera. Cody is now setting his sites on Jericho’s AEW Title, but it’ll be an uphill climb thanks to the unholy alliance of Y2J, Guevera, the Luchas, and AEW newcomer Jack Hager, which formed last night.
The Young Bucks rank at #6 after a loss in last night’s main event six-man to #9 Lucha Brothers and Jericho. The Luchas look to have the Bucks’ number as they also defeated them in that stellar ladder match at All Out. The Bucks will be looking to reverse their fortunes in the upcoming AEW Tag Team Title tournament.
#7 Kenny Omega was also involved in that 6-man tag loss last night. Omega has seemed directionless since losing to Jericho at the Double or Nothing PPV. Now he seems to have his hands full with Jon Moxley (and possibly Nyla Rose), which will keep his focus far away from the AEW Title.
Finally, MJF ranks at #8 this week. Maxwell Jacob Friedman has been on a roll in AEW, scoring a victory over Brandon Cutler last night on the first Dynamite episode. MJF has been in the mix for the AEW Title since he was part of that Fatal Fourway contender match at Double or Nothing.
