Congratulations to AEW’s NEW TNT Champion Darby Allin! This is the first belt Allin has held as a member of the AEW roster and it was well earned.
The rest of the men’s division saw some big changes between this week and last. After losing his title Cody dropped down to the #3 position, while Kenny Omega, a figure that we haven’t seen on the rankings in months, catapulted himself to the #1 spot after defeating Hangman Adam Page in the final round of the Eliminator Tournament.
Lance Archer and Shawn Spears has been booted out of the top 5, and Taz will be happy to report that his FTW boys, Brian Cage and Ricky Starks, are creeping their way up the rankings.

NAW Women’s Champion Serena Deeb has replaced Abadon on the women’s division rankings this week. Abadon was injured in a match last week, but will thankfully make a full recovery.
In a match that had almost no build to it whatsoever, Nyla Rose failed to defeated AEW Women’s Champion Hikaru Shida at Full Gear on Saturday. During a recent interview Tony Khan acknowledged the lack of build for the match and the poor booking for the women’s division overall. Here’s hoping that means positive changes are on the horizon.

At Full Gear for the first time in professional wrestling The Young Bucks and FTR had a match. The Bucks emerged victorious, capturing their first ever AEW Tag Team Championship in a match that was downright incredible. It’s a shame the story and the build to this match was so strangely put together, otherwise this match could be in the discussion for one of the best of the year.
The Butcher and The Blade will look to get revenge on QT Marshall this week for cuckolding The Blade. Meanwhile Marshall will channel his anger at Allie for maxing out his credit cards on her husband, The Blade.
