Top 10 Best AEW Wrestlers of 2021The year 2021 is coming to an end. Looking back, it was a great year for wrestling and a great time to be a wrestling fan as there are plenty of promotions out there to choose from. Heck you can enjoy all of them if you want. All Elite Wrestling has provided fans with exciting matches all year so let's look at which AEW wrestlers had the best 2021.
Kenny Omega was the AEW World Champion for most of the year, delivering great matches against the likes of Jungle Boy, PAC, Orange Cassidy, Bryan Danielson, and Adam Page. He was also known as the "Belt Collector" for a time, as he was not only AEW's top champion but also the AAA World Champion and Impact World Champion simultaneously.
Britt Baker rose to stardom at the beginning of the year after a brutal match against Thunder Rosa. Since then, she has won the AEW Women's World Championship and has been carrying the entire division on her back. Excited to see what she does in 2022.
"Hangman" Adam Page had a great 2021, as he finally captured the AEW World Championship after two years of storytelling and character work. His matches with Kenny Omega and Bryan Danielson are highly praised as well.
Bryan Danielson has only been in AEW for a few months, but he is already being praised for the amazing matches he has had with Kenny Omega and Adam Page.
Ah, MJF. We all hate his guts, but credit where credit is due. He deserves his spot on this list as he is one of the "four pillars of AEW." He is by far one of the best heels in pro wrestling today and one of the best at promos. He has had great matches and feuds all year against the likes of Chris Jericho, the Inner Circle, Darby Allin, and Bryan Pillman Jr.
Darby Allin is one of the most intriguing and fun-to-watch wrestlers on AEW's roster. Sting has been a sort of mentor figure for him this year, which is obviously amazing for him, and he has provided fans with exciting matches all year, one of them being against CM Punk, his first match in AEW.
Miro has been a dominant force in AEW and held the TNT Championship for 140 days, beating opponents like Darby Allin, Lance Archer, Brian Pillman Jr., and Eddie Kingston.
Sammy Guevara got his first taste of gold in AEW this year, winning the TNT Championship from Miro. He also was involved in big matches with his stablemates in the Inner Circle against MJF's faction, The Pinnacle.
Eddie Kingston has been one of the highlights of AEW with his intense promos and great matches, especially in his feuds with CM Punk and Miro. He was also the tag team partner of Jon Moxley for a time. Looking forward to more of these promos in 2022.
CM Punk made his long-awaited return to wrestling this year, signing with AEW. His first appearance on AEW TV was memorable. That alone makes him deserving of a spot on this list, in my eyes. So far, he has been in good programs with Darby Allin, Eddie Kingston, and MJF.
