This year was a major turning point for the Women's Division in AEW. We saw some stars being made and a few names officially make the move to the company. With 2022 right around the corner, we will start the year with two Championship matches. First will be Riho facing Britt Baker at Battle of the Belts on January 8. Also, we will see the crowning of the first-ever TBS Women's Champion. What other surprises will be in store for us in 2022? We certainly don't know yet. However, let's take a look at the top three ladies in the Women's Division from 2021.
#3: Tay Conti
This might come as a surprise to some people but look at the record. As the year comes to a close, she is sitting at 31-5. She was the most recent challenger for Britt Baker's AEW Women’s World Champion and took her to the limit. Every single week she gets better and continues to prove she is a legit threat in the division. Could 2022 be the year she finally wins a belt in All Elite Wrestling?
#2: Thunder Rosa
With a 32-3 record, Thunder Rosa is absolutely the backbone of this division. She truly worked her way into a contract with AEW earlier this year. In addition, she is one of the few people to beat Britt Baker this year. Yes, that match was a Lights Out Match, so it won't count on either wrestler's record. That said, it will go down as one of the best women's matches of 2021. Those two went to war. She is closing the year off with a match against the undefeated Jade Cargill for a chance to challenge for the TBS Women’s Championship.
#1: Britt Baker
This should come as no surprise. Baker is closing the year with a 19-2 singles record in 2021. The current AEW Women's World Champion has been running the division for most of 2021. She won the title way back on May 30 against Hikaru Shida at Double or Nothing. Following that, she has now gone on to defend it successfully six total times. At the start of 2022, she is looking to make that seven total times in a match against former champion Riho. Will 2022 be just as successful for the D.M.D?
