AEW launched their newest rankings (Sep. 1, 2021). Let’s try the movers and shakers. AEW by no means posted the batch earlier than Dynamite, so the rankings don’t mirror Wednesday night time’s motion. Let’s test it out anyway.
Orange Cassidy made a transfer over Darby Allin due to a win in opposition to Matt Hardy. Hardy ought to sue Cassidy for a chunk of his earnings, because it was Hardy’s worth as a veteran that pushed Cassidy up the charts to earn more cash. Jungle Boy dropped out, and Brian Cage entered the combo. Sadly for Cage, his prime 5 standing might be over after dropping a hoss battle to Will Hobbs.
Darby Allin has an opportunity to take again #2 with a match in opposition to Daniel Garcia on Rampage. Allin may even be #1 if he shocks the legend CM Punk in victory on the All Out PPV on September 5. For All Out title motion, Kenny Omega defends in opposition to Christian Cage and Miro defends in opposition to Eddie Kingston. There must be numerous motion within the males’s prime 5 subsequent week.
Tay Conti took a dip to slip underneath Hikaru Shida. Conti’s loss to Bunny was the rationale. Nyla Rose exited, so Jade Cargill may enter with an undefeated report.
At All Out, Dr. Britt Baker DMD defends her championship in opposition to Kris Statlander. If one of many prime 5 wins the On line casino Battle Royale to earn a future title shot, then that girl will probably discover herself at #1 subsequent week within the rankings.
The Lucha Bros received the #1 contender tag workforce match with wins over Varsity Blonds and Jurassic Categorical. That shook up the tag workforce rankings for the second week in a row. Fenix & Pentagon moved from #3 to #1. Brian Pillman Jr. & Griff Garrison dropped from #1 to #5. FTR retains cruising up regardless of inactivity. Dax Harwood & Money Wheeler acquired a one place enchancment to #3. Non-public Celebration was dumped to squeeze in Santana & Ortiz at #4. AEW was a bit ham-handed to pressure FTR versus Santana & Ortiz as a prime 5 matchup, however the motion delivered with the Inside Circle prevailing over the Pinnacle.
The Younger Bucks will defend the tag titles in opposition to the Lucha Bros inside a metal cage at All Out. Will probably be attention-grabbing to see how far the loser falls, since they might nonetheless have a extra spectacular report than the remainder.
