AEW Roster Tier List Wrestler Rankings (All Elite Wrestling Hierarchy)

Posted by Anthony Mango Thursday, January 2, 2020
Welcome to the first edition of TIER LIST RANKINGS from Smark Out Moment!

If you don't know what this entails, it's pretty simple: all the options of the particular subject are up for placement on a set of different tiers ranging from S at the top to A, B, C, D, F and even lower, if need be. Everything is based on my personal preference and I invite you to do the same and chime in with your ranked lists in the comments below.

For this first edition, I figured I'd start with something I'm asked about here and there, which is how I view the All Elite Wrestling roster. Who do I think are the best, the ones without much value to their names and so on?

I have a WWE Depth Chart of what I think WWE's point of view of its own roster is, but I haven't ever bothered to do one of my own personal preferences. I may do that in the future for another one of these. With regards to AEW, though, things are different. Since I don't have an AEW Depth Chart (at least, not yet...we'll see if I will bother to make one of those in the future — donate to the Patreon if you do want it!), the least I can do is give you my hierarchy.

This got me thinking: How would I actually rank these wrestlers? I know who I like, but it's different when you start putting them in list form and you can compare. Also, it's not the same as having Main Event and Midcard and such, because this isn't a kayfabe list. It's just a ranking of who I like better, based entirely on my own tastes.

Without further ado, ramble ramble ramble, I present to you my rankings based on my tier concept:

NOTE: If you see an asterisk * by someone's name, it means they're almost at the level above them, but not quite yet.
