Latest Rankings Released

Cody Responds to Brodie Lee’s Challenge

Cody returned last week to spoil The Dark Order’s post-match beatdown of Orange Cassidy. Following the run-in, Lee cut a fiery backstage promo challenging Rhodes to a dog-collar match. Cody will appear tonight and respond to the challenge.

(Josh’s Take: Lee’s promo last week was tremendous heel work, shooting on Cody’s awful neck tattoo and painting him as an undedicated member of AEW, a bad brother, and a terrible husband. Expect Cody to accept the challenge and for the segment to erupt into a chaotic brawl.)

Jon Moxley Faces Challenger of Eddie Kingston’s Choosing

Moxley successfully defended the AEW World Championship against Kingston last week. Kingston was granted a title shot after never technically being eliminated during the battle royal at All Out. This week Kingston will choose who Moxley will face.

(Josh’s Take: Okay, but why? I must’ve missed the part where they explained why losing his match gave Kingston this power. I know it doesn’t matter to most people, but AEW is still pushing their rankings as an important story, so whoever Kingston chooses is either already in line for a shot, or will leapfrog 5 guys that should be in the ring with Mox. In kayfabe, shouldn’t those guys be complaining pretty loudly about that?)

FTR Defends the Tag Titles Against SCU

FTR squares off against SCU tonight in a match with a 20-minute time limit. If the match goes the full 20 minutes, it will not be recorded as a time-limit draw and FTR will be credited with a win.

(Josh’s Take: Okay, listen: as we established a few months ago these primers double as my Scorpio Sky Stan Blog – which is why it pains me to complain (for the second time in one primer) about the ranking situation. FTR chose SCU to face them tonight, skipping the top 5 ranked teams in favor of a pair that hasn’t tagged together for six months? Tony Khan, if you’re reading this (he’s not, right?), please either drop the rankings or make them make sense. I might be the only person on the planet that cares, but it drives me nuts!)
