AEW Rankings (Dec. 15, 2021): Tag team shakeup

AEW released their latest rankings (Dec. 15, 2021). Let’s check out the movers and shakers.



No changes for the men. Tonight on Dynamite will be the big world title fight between Hangman Page and Bryan Danielson. Yes! Yes! Yes! Cowboy shit!

I assume that this will probably be the final world title defense of the year in AEW, but I don’t like the idea of Kenny Omega finishing as #1 in the rankings. The man will have been out of action since November 13 after losing the AEW World Championship to Hangman. In fact, the men’s singles rankings are closing on a whimper. Miro is stuck in a void. Jungle Boy is focused on tag team gold right now. Scorpio Sky wants to dance with Sammy Guevara for the TNT Championship.



No movement for the women this week. The top 5 has pretty much been on ice throughout the TBS Championship tournament, except for Riho rising to the top due to defeating Dr. Britt Baker DMD in non-title action. Unlike the men, there are some primo bouts on the horizon with #2 Jade Cargill versus #3 Thunder Rosa and #4 Nyla Rose versus #5 Ruby Soho.

Tag Team:


FTR lost to the Lucha Bros as challengers for the AEW tag titles on Rampage. Despite a controversial finish, Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler fell from #1 to #5. Jurassic Express and The Acclaimed moved up one spot accordingly. The Young Bucks hopped over Santana & Ortiz on the strength of a victory against Chuck Taylor & Rocky Romero.

Do you agree with AEW’s rankings this week? If not, what would you change?
