WWE Power Rankings Top 25 Superstars This Week: 9/21/2015

Posted by E. Julius Keiper Monday, September 21, 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. Jack Swagger

Swagger didn't win at all this week, but with appearances on both Main Event and Superstars, he pulled a spot at the top of the list.

24. Paige and Becky Lynch

Becky Lynch hasn't really found her footing on the Main Roster yet, and Paige continues to get buried in almost every match she wrestles. It's a shame, because both women are great workers.

23. Bo Dallas

I Bo-lieve that Bo's victories on Superstars and Main event earn him a spot on this week's Power Rankings. He may not be main eventing anytime soon, but he is always entertaining and plays his terrible gimmick with skill that only the son of the Irwin R. Schyster could pull off.

22. Zack Ryder

Zack Ryder scored a spot on this week's top 25 with a victory on Superstars. He lost to Bo Dallas on Main Event. Two appearances by the Long Island Iced Z in one week is a rare occasion and deserves to be acknowledged as such.

21. Nikki Bella

Nikki Bella lost her Diva's Championship to Charlotte at Night of Champions. She had a record breaking run with the Diva's strap, and managed to not wrestle a single memorable match during her 300+ days as Champ.

20. Rusev

Rusev's character has been "crushed" in his feud with Ziggler. At Night of Champions, he was essentially defeated by a shoe. I agree with whichever commentator said, "This is a new definition of heel". Hopefully this feud is done and buried deeper than Rusev's character.

19. Sasha Banks

Sasha Banks has been tearing things up on the main roster. She earned two victories this week in both singles and tag-team action. Expect to see her in the title picture in the near future.

18. Big Show

Big Show wrestled against Sting on Monday night. It was cool to see two old WCW guys go at it again, but the Big Show's character is all over the place and has gotten beyond stale over the years.

17. Prime Time Players

The Prime Time Players got their shot at the Tag-Team Championships, but came up short against New Day on Raw.

16. Lucha Dragons

The Lucha Dragons defeated the Ascension on Main Event but lost at Night of Champions as they teamed with Neville against the Cosmic Wasteland.

15. Cesaro

Cesaro defeated Rusev on Raw, but was beat by Big Show on SmackDown. Hopefully the Swiss Superman will start winning more matches and get into a decent feud with someone. I'd love to see him in the IC Title picture, but more on that later.

14. Neville

Neville lost in six-man action at Night of Champions, but he and Stardust have yet to have the epic singles match I've been waiting to see. Not sure whats next for the Man That Gravity Forgot, but I'm looking forward to it.

13. Cosmic Wasteland (Ascension and Stardust)

The Cosmic Wasteland gained a victory against Neville and the Lucha Dragons on the Night of Champions Pre-Show. I'm not sure why, but the Ascension and Stardust compliment each other spectacularly.

12. Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns, Chris Jericho

Ambrose and Reigns took on the Wyatt Family with the help of Chris Jericho. Unfortunetly for them, they couldn't compete with the sheer size and brute strength that the Wyatt's harness in Braun Strowman.

11. Ryback

Ryback lost his IC Championship to Kevin Owens. I can't say that I'm going to miss The Big Guy holding that belt.
10. Sheamus

Sheamus was stopped from cashing in his MITB briefcase by Kane at Night of Champions. The Celtic Warrior still has the contract, and will be looking for retribution against The Big Red Machine.

9. The Dudley Boyz

The Dudley Boyz didn't win the tag-team belts at Night of Champions, but they won the match via DQ. I suppose they will eventually get the belts, but their feud with New Day will be milked by creative for a little while longer.

8. Dolph Ziggler

Ziggler and Rusev's feud was terrible, but at least it seems to be over. Ziggler made the top 10 of this list because he is the only guy on the roster who can keep digging himself out of the ground after he's been buried. Even though his program with Rusev sucked, I still want to see what they do next with The Showoff

7. The Wyatt Family

The Wyatt Family defeated Ambrose and Reigns with the addition of Chris Jericho. Braun Strowman choked Jericho out, which is kinda awesome because nobody has really sold a sleeper-hold type maneuver as their finisher for quite a while now. Strowman is the perfect addition to the Family and at Night of Champions, he proved why.

6. Charlotte

Charlotte defeated Nikki Bella for the Diva's Championship. Hopefully this signals the beginning of a new era for women's wrestling. With Nikki Bella out of the way, hopefully WWE will let some of these women from NXT really shine with longer matches and storylines that don't rely on misogynistic stereotypes.

5. Kevin Owens

In my opinion, Owens is exactly what the IC Title division needs. He is a road hardened indy veteran who can work circles around almost anyone on the roster. My fantasy booking would be a slow burn feud with Cesaro ending in an epic match at WrestleMania. I really believe they can rival the great IC Title matches in WWE history like Savage vs. Steamboat and bring prestige back to the strap. There are a few other guys I would like to see go at it with Owens, but Cesaro is the obvious standout for a number of reasons. Anyhow, I am really looking forward to Owens' reign as IC Champion.

4. Sting

Sting may have lost at Night of Champions, but it was a decent match. The ending, however, just made me feel sorry for him. I'm guessing we won't see him again until WrestleMania season. Hopefully he will actually come out on top of the next feud he's placed in.

3. Kane

Kane made his return at Night of Champions and cost Sheamus the WWE Heavyweight Championship. He also chokeslammed Rollins, which suggests he has returned as a babyface. Hopefully Kane will have a few good matches in the near future, but I wouldn't get my hopes up.

2. John Cena

Cena is once again the United States Champion, and I am looking forward to watching him steal shows defending him. His last run with the belt changed a lot of people's minds about Cena, and it will be good having a superstar the caliber of Cena to bolster the undercard once again.

1. Seth Rollins

Rollins didn't have the best week as he lost the US Championship at Night of Champions, but retained the Heavyweight title against Sting. He was double booked at NOC, and still managed to deliver in both matches. He really is an incredible performer, and I have a feeling he hasn't even peaked yet.

Do you think anyone should be listed differently?
What can these Superstars do to get back up at the #1 spot?
