1. Chris Jericho

(Unmoved from last week)

With the AEW World Championship, dangerous back up and the best win percentage in the company, it is undeniable that Jericho is still the most influential figure on the AEW roster.


With Jon Moxley breathing down his neck he can't let up. He has an opportunity to give himself some breathing room with a win over Jungle Boy but he must take it!


2. Jon Moxley

(Up One from last week)

Jon Moxley is the hottest thing in AEW at this moment. He has the attention of Chris Jericho and has been picking up all of the legitimate victories that had alluded him to his frustration a few weeks ago.


There is not, currently, a clear path to Jericho at the moment. However with the announcement of a big PPV coming up, that may be his opportunity.


3. SCU

(Down One from last week)

No tag team action for SCU this week on Dark or Dynamite however Scorpio Sky did appear in Singles action to defeat Jimmy Havoc and Peter Avalon in a Triple Threat.


They would benefit from building up some momentum as they haven't had much of a chance to build on their strong showing at Full Gear due to Sky's involvement in the singles division. There is no bigger opportunity for this than a match with the best tag team in the world, next week!


4. Young Bucks

(Up Four from last year)

A rough start for the Young Bucks in AEW. A first round exit in the Tag Tournament and a heavy loss in their first meeting with Proud and Powerful. However change is a-foot. This week on Dynamite they put all their cards on the table and won bit. They handed Proud and Powerful a receipt in emphatic fashion.


Now they are in the dream position. A match against the champs, next week. The Bucks want nothing more than to be at the head of the tag division they intend on making the premier tag division in the world.


5. Riho

(Down One from last week)

Where is Riho? Even Brandi Rhodes is making jokes about her absence! In Japan and wrestling for Stardom she is neglecting her position in AEW. Luckily for her nobody has taken advantage of this yet.


However next week Baker and Statlander are scheduled to compete in a number one contendership match. Her imminent return is necessary.


6. Britt Baker

(Up seven from last week)

A rise of seven reflects the nature of a Power Rankings system and the way the AEW women's division is being booked rather than her performance since last week's rankings. In fact she did nothing to warrant this rise except watch her competition implode or fail.


She is however in this position due to her previous victories and her achievement of being the iron women of the division. A win next week would give her a second bit at the championship apple.


7. MJF

(Down one from last week)

Making fun of a man's lisp is very playground but MJF has such a way with words that it worked. Backed by the threatening Wardlow and in cahoots with The Butcher, The Blade and The Bunny, MJF is building momentum in every way he can manage.


A huge match against Cody promised, the holder of the Dynamite Diamond Ring could catapult himself into the championship stratosphere with such a big win.


8. Proud and Powerful

(Down one from last week)

A heavy loss last week for the team that was previously the top ranked team in the division after the champion. They will need to shake that off quickly.


Their next match will see them taking on the Young Bucks in a rubber match/number one contenders match. A win gives them their biggest opportunity so far. A loss will plunge them down the division.


9. Kris Statlander

(Up six from last week)

This is an odd one. To be clear, it was a terrific win against Hikaru Shida. But a number one contender's match? She only has one win and a negative record.


This is not how a 'Wrestling League' works.


10. Kenny Omega

(Down one from last week)

A big week for Kenny Omega so it's unfortunate that he has dropped down the rankings. This is the result of opportunities coming up for many of the wrestlers above him.


Kip Sabian was defeated in singles action and then again alongside Shawn Spears in tag action. Omega now finds himself breaking into the top of the rankings and will soon be able to earn opportunities.



11. Hikaru Shida - (Down six from last week)

With a recent victory over one of the women competing in the number one contender match next week Shida will be in pole position as the next opportunity arrises.


12. Pac - (Down two from last week)

No action for Pac this week and we heard about it. He has promised repercussions if this is not rectified soon. Poised to be a big time player.


13. Jurassic Express - (Unlisted last week)

Luchasaurus won a second singles match in two week's, Stunt and Luchasaurus picked up Jurassic Express' first win in tag competition and Jungle Boy challenged Jericho. Easily the best week in Jurassic Express' short history thus far.


14. Dark Order - (Down three from last week)

Good promos will only get you so far, their inactivity has led to them being leap-frogged. The AEW faithful are now desperate to see what they do next.


15. The Butcher and The Blade - (Unlisted last week)

A fantastic in-ring debut for this tag team. A win over a thrown together team but one that included Cody Rhodes. Great place to build from.
