However, these rankings became controversial due to unequal win values and storyline deviations from title contention.

Bryan Alvarez has now revealed that CM Punk was reportedly the one who persuaded Tony Khan to eliminate the ranking system.

As of now, the ranking system is set to return to All Elite Wrestling, and their impact on the championship landscape remains uncertain.
