AEW Rankings + Thoughts (Dec Week 4)

AEW Rankings
We return to regular scheduled format this week in regards to rankings releases, though not to really anything that could be considered a surprise.

MEN'S
Champion: Jericho
1.Mox
2.Omega
3.PAC
4.Cody
5.MJF
Thoughts:
No changes here, but expect the Jericho/Mox angle to start taking center stage as we start the new year next week and head toward the next ppv. Omega is mainly in a story with Page right now and likely heading toward a match with him at the show. Cody is dealing with a lot of different angles, being pulled in different directions. MJF is one of those directions.

WOMEN'S
Champion: Riho
1.Stratlander
2.Baker
3.Shida
4.Nyla
5.Emi
Thoughts:
The rise of Kris has been fun and the division is starting to gel much better. Baker is hit or miss, still. Shida I feel lost the #1 contender's match because they wanted to avoid another all-joshi defense right now. Nyla and Emi round out the bottom of the top five with the former looking poised to remain a force if nothing else.

TAG TEAM'S
Champion: SCU
1.PnP
2.Young Bucks
3.Lucha Bros
4.Best Friends
5.Dark Order
Thoughts:
The champs retained but I feel their next defense is their last for a while with gold. Santana and Ortiz could be good follow ups. The Bucks are still trying to elevate everyone but really need to make 2020 a strong year now (as do the Elite in general). The Lucha Bros look to be getting back on track and the Best Friends remain entertaining. Dark Order is still thudding. I like the angle in theory but not in action.
