25. Heath Slater
Heath Slater is becoming a rare site on any WWE programming. He made an appearance on Superstars, but failed to pick up the win.
24. Mark Henry
Mark Henry continues to job to everybody, but after a nearly 20 year run in the company, you have to have great respect for the man.
23. Bo Dallas
Bo Dallas lost twice this week on Raw and SmackDown. Two losing appearances on programming is better than irrelevance, I guess.
R-Truth won a match against Heath Slater on SuperStars to earn him a spot on this week's list.
21. Jack Swagger
Jack Swagger has settled nicely into his spot as an "enhancement talent". Plus, he managed to pick up a win on SuperStars against Adam Rose.
20. Team Bella
It was a bad week for team Bella as Nikki lost in her rematch against Charlotte, and the entire team lost to Team BAD on Main Event.
19. Stardust and the Ascension
This strange team lost in a rematch from NOC on Raw against Neville and Lucha Dragons. Stardust, however managed to pick up a win against R-Truth on Main Event.
18. Neville and Lucha Dragons
Neville and Lucha Dragons picked up a redemption win on Raw against Stardust and Ascension. On SmackDown, however, they lost to New Day.
17. Dolph Ziggler
Ziggler teamed up with The Dudley Boys on Raw but the three men couldn't pick up the victory against New Day and Rusev. He did, however, gain a tag-team victory with Ryback on SmackDown against Kevin Owens and Rusev.
We saw Rusev in tag-team action several times throughout the week. On Monday he teamed with New Day to pick up a big win over Ziggler and The Dudley Boyz. On Thursday, however, he teamed with Kevin Owens and came up short against Ziggler and Ryback.
Cesaro got beat by Big Show on Raw, but picked up a victory against Bo Dallas on SmackDown. I really hope that Cesaro gets some better presentation over the next few months. He is a gifted athlete, but continuously losing to guys like Big Show does nothing to enhance his character or career.
14. Kevin Owens
Creative is doing to Owens what they did to countless IC Title holders before him. He is losing in all of these throw away matches that completely kill his credibility. I hope they wrap up this feud he has with Ryback so he can go on to defend the title against guys who are on his level.
13. Team BAD
Alot went down in the Divas division this week, and Team BAD seemed to be determined not to get lost in the shuffle. Naomi picked up a big win against Natalya on Raw, while the whole team took on team Bella and won on Main Event.
12. Roman Reigns
Reigns picked up a win against Luke Harper on SmackDown, in somewhat of a payback match for NOC. The rivalry between Reigns and Ambrose vs. The Wyatts is far from over, and you can expect each of their matches to be better than the last. Reigns is really improving each and every month, and I suspect it won't be long before he is in the main event picture again.
Ryback won twice this week, once against Bo Dallas on Raw and once in tag action against Owens and Rusev on SmackDown. Ryback is still on the hunt to recapture the IC tite. Hopefully Owens will retain the title at the end of this feud.
10. Big Show
Big Show is getting a big push in the lead up to his match against Lesnar at MSG. He has been running roughshod on WWE programming, and managed to gain a victory against Cesaro on Raw. I don't mind this as much as I usually would, since this is probably one of Show's final pushes before riding off into the sunset.
9. Dean Ambrose
Ambrose picked up a huge win over the WWE Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins this Thurday on SmackDown. If WWE actually universally enforced the rules they say exist, that would make him the #1 contender to the belt. I'm guessing we'll see Rollins vs. Ambrose for the title at some point in the near future, especially at one of the non-major ppvs.
Sheamus may not have been able to cash in at NOC, but that hasn't slowed the Celtic Warrior down at all. He picked up wins on Raw and Main Event against Mark Henry and Jack Swagger, respectively. I don't know if we'll ever again see Sheamus wearing the heavyweight belt, but his reinvented character is really working for him and, in my opinion, he is one of the top heels in the company.
Charlotte and Paige nearly came to blows on Raw, but Charlotte still managed to defend her newly won Divas Championship against Nikki Bella. I have to agree with Paige though, Charlotte's presentation and character is extremely patronizing and makes her look like a weak daddy's girl instead of a female warrior blessed with both pedigree and phenomenal athletic ability.
6. New Day
New Day continues to prove why they are at the top of the tag team division. These guys really have it all. They are decent enough workers, extremely entertaining, and a breath of fresh air to the division. This week they picked up wins on both Raw and SmackDown.
Paige's promo on Raw was an important moment for both Paige and women's wrestling. Paige is suddenly relevant again, and she finally has the edge that has been missing from her character since she was brought on the main roster a couple years ago.
4. Seth Rollins
Rollins lost to Cena on Monday night Raw and then got dragged to hell by Kane. He then lost to Ambrose on SmackDown. Despite a tough week, Rollins still holds the WWE Championship and is still one of the most talented athletes on the roster.
3. The Wyatt Family
The Wyatt Family didn't see much action this week on programming, but coming off their huge win at NOC, the Family is the most interesting and devastating team in the company. Braun Strowman brought back this stable's edge and made them some of the coolest heels to come around in a while.
Many people say that Kane is washed up and boring. I agreed with that criticism until his most recent return. The split personality angle is something different, and makes me interested in his character again. When he pulled Rollins under the ring this past Monday, I felt like I was a little kid again watching the Big Red Machine wreak havoc across the heavyweight division.
1. John Cena
Cena successfully defended his U.S. Championship on Raw in the main event against Seth Rollins. Cena's position as the U.S. Champion is good for everybody. Hardcore wrestling fans and internet marks who usually mock and bash Cena were silenced during his last reign with the belt. We can only hope that creative continues to deliver high quality matches for the title, and continues its reinvention as one of the top prizes in the company.
Do you think anyone should be listed differently?
What can these Superstars do to get back up at the #1 spot?
