WWE may start doing a ranking system, similar to what AEW has done since launching the company in 2019.
Pwinsider.com notes WWE sent out a survey to fans and asked them a series of questions including whether they are interested in a wrestler ranking system.
Other questions included how many times a month they watch WWE programming, how often they attend events, interest in NFT, and interest in behind-the-scenes things. The previous survey sent out by WWE was in regards to interest in the matches booked for WrestleMania Backlash as fans were asked to rank the matches from “not at all interested” to “extremely interested.”
WWE previously had a ranking system titled “Power Rankings” on WWE.com. The biggest difference between how WWE did it and AEW’s current format is that WWE’s version didn’t focus on wins, losses, and draws. Match records are the only thing AEW’s rankings consist of. AEW uses the rankings to set up storylines and build up title contenders.
WWE’s version was centered around who made a bigger impact on WWE television that week whether in the ring or during a promo. The WWE Power Rankings ended in November 2017.
