Re: Weekly Top Five contender rankings, and "new prize" coming to AEW...

With a proper rankings/ratings system there isn't a need for mid-card titles, as you can add match value and storyline out of rankings climbs and falls and winning steaks to crack the top five etc.

A mid card title is a crutch to not have to storyline for your midcard matches when they don't have any world title impact.

Cody has said he doesn't want a midcard title though - so any secondary title would be more on par with World Title - and to that I say, why so soon? I like the idea of a really exclusive World Title, maybe defended 4-5 times a year with the Champion fighting maybe 10 times a year total (not counting non-canon non-televised matches) so I could support a singles television title that would be defended once a month on television and on PPV's - so 17 matches vs 4-5 matches for the World Elite Championship.

I kind of hope the new title has a stipulation or some unique feature to it.

Re: Weekly Top Five contender rankings, and "new prize" coming to AEW...

Would a Television Title being defended every week be too much? Every two weeks or once a month on Dynamite be better? A 15 minute title match every week with a time limit going to judges sorta deal - wrestlers would want to win it for the television exposure and given it would be every week, there would be no real ranking system - anybody could get the shot that week which could lead to random, interesting matches.

I think every week would be a bit much though. At most every other week - so 26 defenses a year. Announce the next challenger during the off-week show, for a weeks build up.

I could see it being too gimmicky. Maybe once a month defense. With a Top 5 ranking play in each month cycle. 1 vs 4 first week, 2 v 3 second week, winner vs winner third week, winner vs TV Title Holder week 4.

It would be good to have a TV title which is open to all sexes, that would be a big breakthrough.

They don't even have enough credible women in their women's division. Plus Tony, thankfully, said there will be no intergender wrestling.

The Men’s division was up first:

#1. Cody Rhodes
#2. PAC
#3. Hangman Adam Page
#4. Kenny Omega
#5. Jon Moxley

Tag Team division:

#1. The Lucha Bros.
#2. Private Party
#3. The Young Bucks
#4. Dark Order
#5. Best Friends

Women’s division:

#1. Emi Sakura
#2. Britt Baker
#3. Hikaru Shida
#4. Allie
#5. Nyla Rose
Seems to justify the PPV title matches more than anything. Women's division is a hot mess right now - can Emi really be #1 ranked? Allie ranked at all?

PAC vs Page being #2 and #3 basically makes the winner of that the defacto #1 contender. With Mox vs Omega unsanctioned either should move, maybe both jumping ahead of PAC/Page loser. Of course we'll have Dynamite wins and losses to further consider as well before the next World Title defense.

It should preferably be a title. Not a MitB or a title you can cash in. Let MJF or Joey be the first one to hold it.

I don't know of a wrestling promotion that featured a ranking system that lasted more than a month or two. Usually, it doesn't even last that long.

Allie has a positive win loss record overall irrc. Most of the women have losing records
