Every AEW Ladder Match Ranked Worst To Best
8. All Out 2022
The ending of the All Out Casino Ladder Match in September 2022, soured a potentially impressive match. Using outside interference, the mystery joker entrant (Stokely Hathaway) grabbed the casino chip to win, although MJF was later declared as the victor, making a mockery of AEW championship contenders.
7. Double Or Nothing 2020
The Casino Ladder Match at Double or Nothing on May 2020 suffered without the audience in the arena, and the thrill of the ladder match was absent. The competitors were mid-card level, and stocking this match with such wrestlers hurts the value of it as the winner will be jobbing out to the world champion.
6. Revolution 2021
For a shot at the TNT Championship, every competitor fit the bill for the title at the Face of the Revolution Ladder Match at AEW Revolution 2021. Wade Keller wrote, "I bought into the possibility that everyone else was on the verge of possibly winning," although, in the end, Scorpio Sky secured the win.
5. AEW Dynamite
Much of the Casino Ladder Match on the October 2021 episode of AEW Dynamite was spent waiting for the returning "Hangman" Adam Page. The action was hit-and-miss, and the drama quickly ended after Page appeared, unsurprisingly claiming the victory.
4. Revolution 2022
The Face of the Revolution six-way ladder match at AEW Revolution 2022 had several big spots that the audience loved. Wardlow emerged victorious, and Wade Keller wrote, "There were plenty of big spots that were exciting, but also wrestlers having to divert from the goal of winning in order to set up or wait for the next spot."
