Each Wednesday, AEW provides fans with its official rankings to help determine who is in line for an upcoming title shot.
The rankings are based on win-loss record with level of competition supposedly factored in as well.
Though FTR (Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood) are 4-0 in AEW with victories over Lucha Bros, Butcher & Blade, The Initiative, and SCU; the duo has not been ranked in the Top 5 of the official rankings. Private Party, who are 5-4, are currently ranked fifth.
Cash took to social media to seemingly question to legitimacy of the rankings without FTR being one of the top five teams.

AEW President Tony Khan explained why FTR is not ranked.
As I’ve told your attorney, you each need to sign your contracts before we can rank you in the top 5.— Tony Khan (@TonyKhan) July 29, 2020
FTR has previously said that they are on a handshake deal with AEW.
Both members of the group offered the following responses.
Mr. Kahn dropping personal information on twitter. We’ll make our decision today. https://t.co/fNE03lMUFR— Dax FTR (@DaxHarwood) July 29, 2020
We told you what we want. Check off the checklist and we’re ready. https://t.co/kkUMzq9q0g— CASH (@CashWheelerFTR) July 29, 2020
The duo is currently involved in a storyline with Hangman Page and The Elite (Kenny Omega & The Young Bucks).
Fightful will have live coverage of AEW Dynamite beginning at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday.
