What a year for All Elite Wrestling. The roster has grown and changed a lot in 2021. From new stars being made and debuting, to well known stars arriving, this will be a year for the memory books. With 2022 right around the corner, let’s take a look at the top stars of AEW from 2021.
#3: Bryan Danielson
He may be a newcomer to the roster, but don't let that fool you. Since arriving at All Out in September, Bryan Danielson has amounted an impressive record of 13-0-2. Those two draws have come against Kenny Omega and Hangman Adam Page. Both of those men were the AEW World Champion at the time of the match. Also, he's had some victories over major names in the industry as well. Those names are Minoru Suzuki, Miro, Bobby Fish, and Eddie Kingston. Looking ahead to start 2022, he has another match with the AEW World Champion Hangman Adam Page.
#2: Hangman Adam Page
The Cowboy, Hangman Adam Page, is finally on top of the Pro Wrestling world after capturing the AEW World Championship from his former friend Kenny Omega. To close out the year, he accumulated a 13-1-1 singles record. His lone loss came at the hands of Brian Cage. The draw on his record was that 60-minute time limit draw against Bryan Danielson. Most of 2021 was spent with Page chasing the Championship and finally overcoming his demons. He did that and made some awesome friends along the way in form of The Dark Order.
#1: Kenny Omega
The Belt Collector, Kenny Omega, takes the top spot this year. Along with his AEW World Championship reign, he held the IMPACT World Championship and the AAA Mega Championship belts this year. He closes out 2021 with an 8-2-1 record, not nearly as many wins as the other two. However, he has the title defenses to back him up, going 5-1 in those matches against some major opponents. His 2021 didn't end well with him losing all his Championships and going away due to injuries. That said, looking towards 2022, when will we see him again?
