Who are my favorite wrestlers in AEW so far??? These are my choices and I’ll name a top 5 for both male & female wrestlers…

I’ve been watching AEW wrestling ever since they first started with their very first ppv and first live show “Double or Nothing”. So far, I’ve seen every AEW ppv and every TV event they’ve ever done. I’m just really impressed with what they’re doing and AEW is definitely making me feel appreciative of wrestling again. I’ve been watching AEW for a long while and I’m just blown away by all the talent they have there.

You see there is a big difference in between WWE talent and AEW talent. With the WWE roster, they are all very talented wrestlers; however, WWE only allows them to use certain moves and most WWE stars can do more than what you see on their brand. With the AEW brand, they are not as strict and picky when it comes to wrestler moves. In AEW, they allow their wrestlers to do whatever they want in the ring pretty much.

So with that being said here are my top 5 favorite wrestlers in AEW for both male and fewmale talent… I’ll list them in no particular order.

The males:

Chris Jericho: I’ve been a loyal Chris Jerich fan for many years. He impresses me over the years and he still impresses me even to this day when he’s in AEW. I always knew Jericho is very talented. Jericho is still killing it in the ring and killing it on the mic too. Jericho never disappoints every time you see him on TV. Admittedly, Jericho was the reason I wanted to get into AEW wrestling .

Kenny Omega: Before AEW wrestling, I’ve seen a few Kenny Omega matches for New Japan and now Kenny is in AEW, this guy just blows my mind. He was definitely one of the best in the indie wrestling industry and I can see why the man has gotten a lot of buzz for the past few years. Now he’s in AEW full time, I look forward to seeing him on TV. Kenny is a freakin’ badass. The man has the full package…. he has the wrestling skills, great mic work and he’s got a great look too.

Adam “Hangman” Page: Don’t know much about him but what I’m seeing of Adam Page is freakin’ awesome. He’s also one of the best wrestlers who never touched WWE. This guy is also great in the ring, great on the mic and he has an awesome look/gimmick.

Darby Allin: This guy getting my attention as of late. His gimmick is a little silly but man can’t help but notice his wrestling skills. He’s one of the best wrestlers on the AEW roster for sure. My god, that man is amazing and I can definitely see him becoming AEW champ sometime in the future.

MJF: Like most AEW fans, MJF is getting my attention. This guy is just entertaining as hell and also good in the ring and good on the mic.

The females:

Awesome Kong: I’ve been a fan of Awesome Kong since her TNA Impact days so I know she’s freakin’ awesome and she’s still killing it in the ring too.

Dr. Britt Baker: She’s definitely one of the best female wrestlers I’ve seen. Her matches are always exciting to watch.

Riho: I have a thing for Japanese wrestling and Riho just blows my fuckin’ mind in the ring. I just love female Asian wrestling and they are always a blast to watch. These Japanese ladies sure know how to put on a good show.

Hikaru Shida: She’s another Japanese talent who also amazes me. These Japanese talent in the women’s division are awesome.

Brandi Rhodes: She’s the wife of Cody Rhodes. I love her ’cause she has a hot look and she’s also great in the ring although she’s playing the manager role for Awesome Kong right now but Brandi is fucking awesome, I enjoy watching her.

So there you have it. Some of you may ask, why didn’t I name Jon Moxley or Cody Rhodes in the men’s division? They are good but not my favorite. In my opinion, I think Moxley and Rhodes are a bit overrated.

I do enjoy AEW so far and they haven’t disappointed me yet. AEW is changing wrestling whether you want to admit it or not.

The war between WWE and AEW is now officially on so I guess you can now call this the “Wednesday Night Wars”???

Earlier this summer AEW announced that they will make their TV debut on TNT network on Oct. 2nd which falls on a Wednesday night. Just today the WWE just announced that the WWE Network exclusive wrestling show will soon make their cable TV debut on Sept. 18th and they will air on the USA Network channel. WWE NXT used to be a one hour show on the WWE Network but once it debuts on USA Network, it will get turned into a two hour show.

I remember back in the 90’s when Monday Night RAW was on a Monday and WCW Monday Nitro was on a Monday, those two shows were pretty much on at the same time so that was named the “Monday Night Wars”.

Now that WWE NXT and AEW will be on the same nights, I guess you can safely say this will be called the “Wednesday Night Wars” which is pretty fitting. Obviously, the only reason WWE is doing this so they can go to war with AEW.

Even though the WWE will soon be moved to cable TV, the WWE Network will still stream the new NXT episodes.

I love WWE NXT. I love it a lot more than RAW and SD honestly. The reason I love NXT so much is ’cause that show gives us what we all want to see… “wrestling”. RAW and SD don’t give us that which is why NXT is a pretty hot show right now.

A lot of people still making predictions that AEW will destroy WWE but I think not. Like I said in a post before, the WWE is a very powerful company. It will be around forever. I think the WWE will try to find a way to get back on top again and I predict that it’s AEW that will get destroyed. They won’t last long, trust me.

I used to like what AEW is doing but now they are getting on my nerves ’cause they’re just doing everything they can to make WWE look bad. I’m considering no longer supporting AEW the more they keep up with their attacks at WWE. I think it’s obvious that the only reason AEW was formed was so that they can go to war with WWE. Well, now they got the WWE’s attention and things are getting interesting.

If you don’t know what the NXT brand is, it’s a show where wrestling rookies can get their start in pro wrestling. It’s a show for up and coming stars is what it is. Most of today’s WWE stars on the RAW and SD brand came from NXT: Roman Reigns, Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks, Braun Strowman, Shinsuke Nakumura, AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, etc. They were all on the NXT brand until they got called up to the main roster once they all got more popular. The NXT is like a third brand. I watch NXT every Wednesday night and I watch all the NXT Takeover ppv’s too. It’s a great show.

Once NXT gets on USA Network, you all should check it out too.
