Scorpio Sky, who was once #1 in the AEW rankings, has completely disappeared from Top 5. Sky is recovering from an injury, according to a statement made by him during the June 3rd match against Dante Martin. He lost the TNT Championship on July 10th to Wardlow and hasn’t competed in AEW since 2018.
With Sky’s absence, wrestlers Daniel Garcia and Jon Moxley both moved up a spot into #5 of the rankings.
Bailey Page, Jay Lethal, Will Hobbs, Chris Jericho, and Bryan Danielson all moved up one spot each as well. The point-system I created in my blog post with this update features a sporting feel because of Garcia’s victory over wrestling superstar Bryan Danielson.
For No. 5 on the Dynamite card, we are in line for a show stealer from Jericho versus Wheeler Yuta.
If Yuta triumphs, he will step into the ring with Jon Moxley next week to challenge for AEW‘s interim world title belt.

How does the AEW ranking system work?
The point of the AEW rankings system is that the people on top of them are the first in line for title shots. There are separate rankings for the Men’s Division, Women’s Division, and Tag Team Division. There is a major caveat to the Men’s Division.
There was a lot of movement for the women this week, with Miyu Yamashita, Serena Deeb,
and Nyla Rose all being dropped from the top on their ranking list.
Toni Storm and Kris Statlander rose one spot each to #1 and #2 respectively.
#3 Dr. Britt Baker DMD, #4 Jamie Hayter, and #5 Athena round out the top 5 as fresh additions.
This ranking changes sets up an intriguing scenario for August 6 as Battle of the Belts III and All Out are booked for pay-per-views.
There is a chance that a four-way title match could arise, possibly with Baker & Hayter’s team against Thunder & Storm’s team
which would create new championship contenders to challenge Stadtlander.
