1. Chris Jericho

Unmoved from last week


Unmoved at the top of the power rankings. Chris Jericho seems in total control of AEW at this time. His only challenger is a lone wolf, albeit a dangerous one.


'Le Champion' is so valuable and in control within the company, even when he is contracted to perform he is given license to pick his own opponent. Somehow he finds himself against the worse ranked wrestler in all of AEW.


All that being said, due to his reluctance to compete he is below Jon Moxley in the 1-1 standings(when you include unsanctioned matches).


Overall - 1. Male Overall - 1. Male 1-1 - 2.


2. SCU

Unmoved from last week


An absentee week for SCU with the exception of Christopher Daniels, who lost to Pentagon. Another week like this and they won't stand a chance of resisting Jon Moxley anymore.


They remain in second due to their amassed victories and position at the top of the tag team standings, trio's standings and the lofty positions of Sky and Kaz overall.


Scorpio Sky: Overall - 5. Male Overall - 4. Tag - 1.

Frankie Kazarian: Overall - 3. Male Overall - 2. Tag - 1.

Christopher Daniels: Overall - 25. Male Overall - 18. Trio - 1.



3. Jon Moxley

Unmoved from last week


Jon Moxley is on a tear. His sights are set on Chris Jericho and the biggest prize in AEW. However if the 'Lexicon of Le Champion' is anything to go by, the champion is not going to be willing to explore such a contest if he can do anything about it.


Another victory for Moxley, this time out against Joey Janela propels him above Chris Jericho in the 1-1 standings (when including unsanctioned matches). He sits comfortably atop the AEW Rankings and quite rightly so.


Quite possibly the most popular man in AEW outside of Cody, the former Shield member can't regret his decision one iota.


Overall - 4. Male Overall - 3. Male 1-1 - 1.


4. Riho

Unmoved from last week


Luckily for Riho, AEW has a lack of competitors really gaining momentum at the moment. Thus her Full Gear and pre-Full Gear results sees her hanging onto fourth place.


With the women's division being questioned online and by critics at every turn, having your top star, your champion working for a different company in a different continent, really doesn't help.


Her return can't come soon enough.


Overall - 2, Female Overall - 1, Female 1-1 - 1.


5. Hikaru Shida

Unmoved from last week


Another female superstar who is fortunate to have maintained such a high standing. Currently the AEW roster is in a state of flux. Wrestlers are jostling for position and nobody is really managing to build up much steam. Nobody is a better example of this than Hikaru Shida.


Just when she had reached the front of the women's division, she lost in a big way to Kris Statlander who was wrestling her first 1-1 match in AEW. Fortunately for her Britt Baker wasn't in action to take advantage of this and she had enough of a buffer over the other women in the division.


Overall - 17, Female Overall - 4, Female 1-1 - 6.


6. MJF

Unmoved from last week


Another wrestler absent from Dynamite. MJF was present in spirit as Cody pretty much begged for his attention. A later appearance on social media to reply to Cody was well received and he looked menacing as he addressed his victim. A look we haven't really seen from him in AEW.


MJF seems positioned to become a major force in AEW. The Dynamite Diamond Ring hasn't been explained yet but it is still being put over as a big prize and seems to have been the most significant prize since the inception of the titles.


Overall - 14. Male Overall - 12. Male 1-1 - 4.


7. Proud and Powerful

Up 4 from last week


This week was almost a resurrection for Proud and Powerful after a difficult loss to Private Party. A big win over Jurassic Express and a tremendous performance against the Young Bucks and Dustin Rhodes boosts them up the tag rankings.


Next week is basically a number one contenders match. If Santana and Ortiz win they will be the undeniable top of the tag division. A loss would be costly but they would still be 1 for 1 with the Young Bucks.


Overall - 10/11. Male Overall - 8/9. Tag - 2.


8. Young Bucks

Unlisted last week


The Bucks have rehabilitated their AEW record yet again and have set up a return match against Proud and Powerful. For a certain section of fans, and I count myself one of them, almost nobody brings quite the same excitement to the ring and Matt and Nick Jackson.


Are they starting to move towards their inevitable AEW World Tag Team Title reign? Proud and Powerful will prove a difficult stumbling block. The edge may have to go to Santana and Ortiz for this one, they have looked the real deal thus far in AEW.


The Jacksons have performed best in more chaotic 6-man tags so far in AEW. In 2 on 2 tag they have struggled for consistency.


Matt Jackson: Overall - 6. Male Overall - 5. Tag - 5.

Nick Jackson: Overall - 9. Male Overall - 7. Tag - 5.


9.Kenny Omega

Down 2 from last week


Kenny Omega's bitty AEW career continued this week with a no-show. He will be appearing this week at least once so we should see him capitalise on his huge win over Pac.


Omega did compete in Mexico for AAA to defend his AAA Mega Championship in winning fashion against Dragon Lee. Thus further building his pro wrestling legend as a top champion in yet another company.


Luckily for Omega, wrestlers above him dropped down the league standings this week meaning his off-week was not damaging. He must capitalise on that next week.


Overall - 18. Male Overall - 14. Male 1-1 - 9.


10.Pac

Down 2 from last week


After his huge loss to Kenny Omega last week, Pac could have really used a victory to prevent his post-Adam Page vanquishing momentum from being completely eradicated. It hasn't been eradicated however he will need to do something big to get anywhere near the same standing.


The story of Pac's AEW run so far has been a series of big wins to position him at the top of the division before a notable loss costs him this position.


Overall - 18. Male Overall - 14. Male 1-1 - 5.


11. Dark Order

Up one from 11th place but this doesn't do justice to the influence they are currently having in AEW. Their new direction is getting attention, at the very least for now. Watch this space. (Up 1 from last week)

Overall - 12/13. Male Overall - 10/11. Tag - 3.


12. Nyla Rose

Rose would be higher up this list if she hadn't got herself suspended. Finally building momentum after a painful fall from grace after losing to Riho, she may have blown it immediately. (Unlisted last week)

Overall - 15, Female Overall - 3, Female 1-1 - 2.


13. Britt Baker

Another absentee week for Baker, in the ring at least. She needs to return from action to repair the damage done in that big match loss to Hikaru Shida. (Down 4 from last week)

Overall - 7, Female Overall - 2, Female 1-1 - 7.


14. Shawn Spears

Spears has risen up the ranks with the help of Tully Blanchard. He is building form particularly on one on one competition. (Unlisted last week)

Overall - 28. Male Overall - 21. Male 1-1 - 6.


15. Kris Statlander

What an impact. One of the biggest upsets to date as Statlander defeated the number one ranked female to introduce herself to the Dynamite audience. (Unlisted last week)

Overall - 34, Female Overall - 11, Female 1-1 - 5.
