Coming out of the Full Gear pay-per-view on Saturday, as well as the latest episode of Dynamite in Nashville this past Wednesday, AEW’s lists of top five contenders for each belt see a few interesting changes.
The new top fives in the men’s, women’s, and tag team divisions are as follows:
Champion: Chris Jericho (C)
1. Pac (4-1-1 singles, 4-2-1 overall) (2)
2. Cody Rhodes (3-1-1 singles, 4-2-1 overall) (1)
3. Adam Page (4-3 singles, 5-5 overall) (3)
4. Jon Moxley (2-0-1 singles, 2-1-1 overall) (5)
5. Darby Allin (4-2-1 singles, 4-3-1 overall) (NR)
Though he went 50/50 with Page over the last week, Pac moves up with the convincing win over “The Hangman” on Wednesday night.
Moxley slots up with his quick win over Michael Nakazawa, and Allin climbs into the picture with his triple threat win over Shawn Spears and Peter Avalon. Moxley and Allin face off this Wednesday on Dynamite.
Kenny Omega drops from #4 rank to out.
Champion: Riho (C)
1. Britt Baker (3-1 singles, 6-2 overall) (2)
2. Hikaru Shida (2-1 singles, 3-1 overall) (3)
3. Emi Sakura (1-1 singles, 2-3 overall) (1)
4. Nyla Rose (2-3 singles, 3-3 overall) (5)
5. Allie (1-2 singles, 3-2 overall) (4)
Baker moves up with her Buy In victory over Bea Priestley.
Sakura drops following her unsuccessful challenge of Riho on Saturday.
Rose moves up a spot after defeating Dani Jordyn on Wednesday.
Champions: SCU (C)
1. Lucha Bros (4-3 tag, 5-4 overall) (1)
2. Proud-n-Powerful (2-0 tag, 3-0 overall) (NR)
3. Young Bucks (4-3 tag, 7-4 overall) (3)
4. Best Friends (3-3 tag, 4-5 overall for Trent Baretta, 4-4 overall for Chuck Taylor) (5)
5. Dark Order (3-2 tag, 4-2 overall) (4)
Proud-n-Powerful ascend to the #2 spot after defeating the Bucks at Full Gear. They take on Private Party this Wednesday, who themselves fell out of the rankings after taking the fall at Full Gear in the three-way Tag Team title match.
Lucha Bros remain #1 contenders, likely due to not taking the fall in that same match on Saturday.
Curiously, Dark Order drops a spot, despite beating The Jurassic Express on Wednesday.
