A Strong Possibility AEW Will Utilise Win-Loss Records & Rankings

Recommended Posts

Quote

At the Double or Nothing Rally earlier this month, Cody stated that wins and losses will be a big part of All Elite Wrestling. Digging into that topic further, Cody revealed that AEW is considering the possibility of featuring win/loss records and rankings.

“This is preliminary, but I can tell you that we have talked about rankings and we have talked about records. As a kid, we probably all read Pro Wrestling Illustrated and the different mags where they’d have the rankings. Everything we’d like to do is an effort to engage the audience. Not in a way that insults their intelligence. It is something that’s been discussed. I can’t confirm that we’ll do records, or we’ll do an analytical take on it, but I’ve seen some mock ups for some pretty cool stuff.”

“If you really think about it, somebody like Chris Jericho who just signed with All Elite Wrestling, that’s a really cool record to take a look at. Analytically, it’s a really unique outlook on his career, it’s incredibly impressive. New Japan does it in their own unique way, with Tag League and with G1 and you notice the fans get really into that. They want something they can sink their teeth into. I can’t confirm but we’re definitely looking at records and standings, it’s a very strong possibility.”

“Wrestling to me is very real. There is a side of this world that is artificial that we’re all well aware of that. But it’s a much fairer business (it can be) than people realize. And when I say that, the people that the crowd likes the most. Those are the people that you should invest in. You should never sleep on a moment, you’ve seen it before, a moment that the crowd gets behind somebody. That’s a thing to take note of.”

I feel that the Win/Loss record will definitely count, I feel that they need to, especially when they are trying to separate themselves from everyone other promotion like ROH, NJPW and WWE

Do you think with the records they should choose a period of time where it might reset? Maybe at a 6 month period/a year? It's hard to imagine it being used long term in wrestling but i'm also not used to the idea.

I hope they find out a really cool way to use Win/Loss records could be fun if they were a little different from the other big promotions.

I like Chikara's system: win 3 matches in a row ("get three points"), and you earn the right to challenge for the championship. If AEW used a variation of that i think that could go a long way without needing to have a stats page on their website. But i'm willing to see what they come up with because it's sparked my curiosity.
