AEWrestling/Twitter

It’s the weekend of AEW’s third pay-per-view, Full Gear, and the company has released rankings for each of its three main divisions.

The rankings for the men’s, women’s, and tag team scenes each have the top five contenders listed. Rankings are apparently considered not only by won/loss record, but by quality of opposition, as well as quality of victories.

MEN’S

Champion: Chris Jericho

1. Cody Rhodes (3-0-1 singles, 4-1-1 overall)

2. Pac (3-0-1 singles, 3-1-1 overall)

3. Adam Page (3-2 singles, 4-4 overall)

4. Kenny Omega (2-2 singles, 5-4 overall)

5. Jon Moxley (1-0-1 singles, 1-1-1 overall)

Rhodes challenges Jericho for the title at Full Gear tonight. Pac and Page will also be in action against each other at the pay-per-view. Omega does wrestle Moxley, but since the match is unsanctioned, it will not count officially toward the standings.

WOMEN’S

Champion: Riho

1. Emi Sakura (1-0 singles, 2-2 overall)

2. Britt Baker (2-1 singles, 4-2 overall)

3. Hikaru Shida (2-1 singles, 3-1 overall)

4. Allie (1-2 singles, 3-2 overall)

TAG TEAMS

Champions: SCU
