Ranking Every AEW Wrestler's 2019 From Worst To Best
From Le Champion to the Librarians...
AEW haven't even put their name to 30 different shows yet, but the promotion has already demonstrated an aptitude for getting the most out of many performers at once.
The roster isn't perfect, and AEW already have a handful of rebuilding jobs on their hand, though it's hard to be too cynical at this early stage. The promotion are in the process of building a tiered roster with a clearly-defined hierarchy. That's very, very difficult to do with just two months of television, though those above this list's lower reaches are already in a great place.
Only wrestlers listed on AEW's official roster page were considered here, as incorporating freelancers, part-timers, and moonlighters like Aja Kong, Jamie Hayter, and T-Hawk would have made things messy. Tag teams were only taken as separate entities when necessary.
The factors determining these rankings included (but wasn't restricted to) quality of performances, overness, presentation, positioning, quality of pushes and programmes, and effectiveness as televised wrestlers and personalities. Remember that this is almost entirely subjective. There is no objective way to measure most of these factors, so your own list may be completely different.

Let's get into it...
56. Leva Bates
The Librarian gimmick remains a misfire despite Leva Bates and Peter Avalon's repositioning as complete jobbers, and performances are what separates them.
The former Blue Pants looks in over her head in even the most rudimentary of squash matches. Though she isn't entirely without merit, Leva was hopeless in bouts with Allie and Nyla Rose, suggesting she may be better suited to a full-time managerial role going forward.
