Re: Weekly Top Five contender rankings, and "new prize" coming to AEW...
Talking about "a new prize" and not a new title belt makes me believe it might be a ring or other type trophy. Cody own Battlebowl and that was a Nov/Dec event IIRC.
Could they have a complete battlebowl in 2 hours? 8 lethal lottery tag matches means 32 wrestlers in "random" pairings. 8 matches even 10 minutes means 80 minutes and then you need time for the battle royale at the end to crown the winner.
Winning never went anywhere ie no earned title shot. Just something to add to a resume I guess, while the one-off tournament could be used to further or launch new storylines.
I wouldn't mind something have the winner earn a "ring", and have 2-3 other type tournament/matches throughout the year regularly whereby the winners then face off to earn a title shot at a regular PPV. Or a wrestler who can win all the rings (put their ring up against another winner's until they are united) then can cash them in for a world title shot on an announced Dynamite airing.
