Ahead of tonight's live episode of AEW Dynamite, AEW has released their updated weekly rankings. It looks like Lance Archer and the Best Friends benefited the most from AEW's Georgia tapings and the set of storylines that filled the time before AEW could return to live shows at Daily's Place in Jacksonville. Both Archer and the Best Friends moved up to second place in their respective divisions, with the Best Friends winning a feud with Kip Sabian and Jimmy Havoc, while Archer has dominated his matches in the TNT Championship tournament.
In the men's singles division, Cody Rhodes, who will face Archer at Double or Nothing in the final match of the tournament, is ranked number one with an 8-1 record, followed by Archer with a 4-0 record, and Kenny Omega in third place with a 4-0 record. The Exalted One Brodie Lee takes fourth place with a 4-0 record, followed by Darby Allin in fifth place at 5-3. AEW Champion Jon Moxley is one of many stars returning to AEW at tonight's episode of Dynamite.
In the women's division, competing for Nyla Rose's AEW Women's Championship, Hikaru Shida remains in first place with a 7-1 record. Kris Statlander comes in second with a 2-3 record, followed by Yuka Sakazaki in third with a 1-1 record. Britt Baker is ranked fourth at 3-3, followed by former champion Riho with a 3-3 record. On Twitter, Baker was not pleased with her ranking, calling out Kris Statlander by responding to a question about her higher ranking despite a lower win/loss record, "Who knows? Probably because @CodyRhodes tweeted about her or something. 🙄." The women's rankings remain unchanged since last week.
Finally, in the tag team division, the Dark Order is ranked in first place with an undefeated 5-0 record. Best Friends are in second with a 6-3 record, followed by the Young Bucks in third at 2-2. Former champions SCU take fourth place with a 2-3 record, and the last spot goes to the Lucha Bros with a record of 1-2. AEW Tag Team Champions Kenny Omega and Hangman Page have been separated throughout the Georgia tapings, with Page quarantining at home.
AEW Dynamite airs at 8PM tonight on TNT, and it's set to be a huge show. Matches and segments announced for tonight's show include Cody Rhodes vs. Joey Janella, Jon Moxley vs. Frankie Kazarian, Lance Archer murdering QT Marshall, and Matt Hardy and Kenny Omega vs. Chris Jericho and Sammy Guevara in a street fight. Additionally, MJF will make his return to Dynamite after recovering from devastating hangnail and shaving injuries.
