WWE Power Rankings Top 25 Superstars This Week: 8/10/2015

Posted by Carlos Toro Monday, August 10, 2015
Welcome to another edition of Power Rankings from Smark Out Moment! Each week, we will break down the current roster and examine who has gone up the WWE hierarchy and who has unfortunately taken a step down the ladder. Factoring in things such as wins and losses, suspensions, injuries, making a name for one's self, being humiliated, and more, who is at the top of the food chain and who needs to make up some ground next week?

Power Ranking WWE wrestlers list roster

25. Bo Dallas

The power of positivity was not on Dallas' side as he competed against Jack Swagger on WWE Superstars in a losing effort, just "Don't Stop Bo-lieving!" (Sorry. Couldn't resist.)

24. Zack Ryder

Don't think that his slight rise in the Power Rankings from last week is because he won a match or did anything noteworthy. He just wasn't the worst of the worst as he lost to King Barrett on Raw and to Stardust on SmackDown. The only positive thing to mention about him is that he got some offense on Barrett and even hit him with the Rough Ryder shortly before getting pinned.

23. Los Matadores

Claiming that you are the #1 contenders after a fluke win against The Prime Time Players a couple of weeks sound even sillier after losing your lone match this week on Raw in an eight-man tag match against The New Day and The Ascension (of all teams).

22. John Cena

While the current United States Champion was able to finish his match against Seth Rollins two weeks ago on Raw despite a broken nose, Cena was a no show WWE television this past week. However, he was a focal point on Raw last week as he was a challenge to a Champion vs Champion match for both the United States and WWE World Heavyweight Championships by Seth Rollins at SummerSlam.

21. Sheamus

Not a good week for Mr. Money in the Bank as he lost a six-man tag match against Randy Orton, Dean Ambrose, and Roman Reigns. Things bode even worse for him as there are reports that he  is suffering from a possible concussion from said match.

20. Fandango

The good news for the dancing superstar: Fandango actually won a match last week on WWE Superstars. The bad news: His win came against Heath Slater, who is practically in the bottom of the WWE barrel.

19. The Wyatt Family

Oh Bray Wyatt. Just when I think you're on to something, it quickly backfires and it happened again this past week. In a SummerSlam preview of sorts, they partnered with Sheamus to face off against Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns in the main event of Raw. Unfortunately they could not seal the deal, and will probably have to wait until SummerSlam to get their revenge.

18. The Bella Twins

As PaigeCharlotteBella (PCB) and Team BAD keep rising in the ranks, it may seem that Nikki Bella's days as Divas champion could be over soon. This is further evidenced by the The Bella Twins' loss to PCB's Charlotte and Becky on Raw.

17. Jack Swagger

To think that a former World Heavyweight Champion would just be competing on WWE's C and D level shows is astonishing. The All-American American did actually pick up a win against Bo Dallas on WWE Superstars but fell to the Big Show on WWE Main Event to finish the week with a win and a loss.

16. Neville

Neville only competed in just one match this week and even though he lost that match, at least he lost in spectacular fashion. He accepted Seth Rollins' WWE World Heavyweight Championship open challenge on Raw and the match will likely be one of the most talked about matches this month as it was a fantastic battle and there were instances where fans thought he might have won.

15. Mark Henry

The World's Strongest Man lost a quick match to Rusev on Raw, but redeemed himself by partnering himself with The Prime Time Players on SmackDown, beating all three members of The New Day.

14. Big Show

So I guess the Big Show is no longer a member of The Authority. Well, whether it's true or not, it still hasn't stopped him from racking up wins as The World's Largest Athlete beat Jack Swagger on WWE Main Event.

13. The Lucha Dragons

The Lucha Dragons had mixed results this week on their quest for Tag Team gold. Losing to The New Day and The Ascension in eight-man tag team action on Raw did hurt their stock, they made up for it beating The Ascension on WWE Main Event.

12. King Barrett

The King of the Ring winner is still in figurative limbo as he's just aimlessly giving the Royal Bullhammer to Superstars in inconsequential matches. This week, he beat Zack Ryder on Raw in a relatively short match.

11. Cesaro

After being one of the biggest talking points two weeks ago, Cesaro did not even compete in a match this past week. He did appear on Miz TV on Raw last week where he stood up for guys that cared about the business to Kevin Owens, all, but securing a showdown between the two at SummerSlam.

10. Team BAD

Sure a top-10 spot might seem strange for a group that had a .500 record this past week (1 win, 1 losses, 1 no contest), but it's not like they lost badly when Paige beat Naomi on Raw. They had their revenge on SmackDown when a Naomi vs. Charlotte match ended in a no contest which created an impromptu tag match when Naomi and Sasha Banks beat Charlotte and Becky Lynch.

9. The Prime Time Players

After The New Day won their match on Raw, there seemed to be a possibility of a rematch for the Tag Team Championship at SummerSlam. The champs proved their dominance in the division after beating The New Day in a six-man tag team match on SmackDown.

8. Stardust

Stardust continues to keep himself in good shape in anticipation for a possible match at SummerSlam. He beats Zack Ryder on SmackDown and continues to antagonize Neville and Stephen Amell, who well appear on Raw this week.

7. Rusev

Rusev made quick work of Mark Henry on Raw and that is no easy feat even with the Lana/Sunmer Rae drama happening. He couldn't complete the week sweep as he lost to Roman Reigns in the main event of SmackDown on Thursday.

6. The New Day

The New Day took advantage of opportunity as they teamed with The Ascension on Raw and beat the Lucha Dragons and Los Matadores. They did lose to Mark Henry and The Prime Time Players on SmackDown, but if I were to bet on one team facing PTP for the belts at SummerSlam, I would still put my money on The New Day.

5. Randy Orton

Orton didn't do much, but he still keeps picking up wins against Sheamus as he did in the main event of Raw in a six-man tag match with Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose against The Wyatt Family and Sheamus. While his standing in the SummerSlam card remains up in the air, Orton will just keep racking up wins.

4. Dean Ambrose

How does the Lunatic Fringe go from losing to Big Show cleanly on Raw two weeks to #4 on the Power Rankings the following week? Simple: looking good by association, especially tagging with Roman Reigns and Randy Orton, two of the biggest momentum carrying Superstars right now, on Raw and beating The Wyatt Family and Sheamus.

3. Seth Rollins

The current WWE World Heavyweight Champion opened up Raw last week calling out John Cena and mocking him by holding his own open challenge where he defended his title against Neville. The match was great and even though Rollins retained, there were a couple of instances where he almost lost the match.

2. Roman Reigns

Beating The Wyatt Family plus Sheamus in a six-man tag match on Raw, then pinning Rusev on SmackDown, things could not get any better for Roman Reigns. He's been on a roll as of late and looks to carry that immense momentum as he further prepares for a big match on SummerSlam partnering with Dean Ambrose against The Wyatt Family.

1. PaigeCharlotteBecky (PCB)

A 2-1-1 record in matches this past week shows that momentum is on the side of the newly named stable led by Paige. Their week staryed off on Raw when all three member beat The Bella Twins and Naomi in separate matches. Even though Charlotte and Becky Lynch lost to Sasha Banks and Naomi on SmackDown, it's obvious that the cream of the crop in the Divas Division are these three great wrestlers, not Team Bella led by the Divas Champion Nikki Bella. PCB are leading the charge in the Divas Revolution and is easily one of the best things to happen in WWE in recent memory.
