25. Zack Ryder
Zack Ryder only appeared on Main Event this week where he lost to Rusev. Still though, I always like to show the Long Island Iced Z a little love. Hang in there buddy.
24. Bo Dallas
Bo Dallas appeared on both Raw and Main Event, and lost to Randy Orton and Cesaro, respectively. Bo Dallas is definitely my favortie "enhancement talent" on the main roster, and is usually pretty funny when he makes an appearance. Its hard to believe he was once the top guy at NXT.
23. Team BAD
Team BAD didn't get much airtime this week, but they did manage to pull of a big victory against the Team Bella on SmackDown.
22. Chris Jericho
Jericho may only be a part-timer, but his recent appearances were good enough to earn him a place on this week's list. Jericho can still move with the best of them, and we saw that this Saturday at WWE Live from Madison Square Garden as he faced off and lost against Kevin Owens for the IC Championship.
21. King Barrett
Barrett made a big return on Raw. Despite being perpetually buried, he is still over with the crowd.I was hoping this time around he would get a more serious presentation. In typical WWE fashion, however, he lost later in the week to Dean Ambrose on Main Event, which kind of killed his momentum.
20. Stardust and Ascension
Stardust lost twice to Neville this week on WWE Programming and the Ascension lost to The Lucha Dragons in tag-team competition. The whole team lost against Neville and Dragons on SmackDown. Despite this, they are still a pretty cool stable that works well together in a strange way.
Rusev lost on Saturday night at WWE Live from Madison Square Garden in tag-team action with Sheamus, but picked up a win on Main Event against Zack Ryder.
18. Dolph Ziggler
Ziggler won in tag-team action with Randy Orton against Rusev and Sheamus at WWE Live from Madison Square Garden
Ryback didn't do much this week, but he technically won against Kevin Owens on SmackDown. The Big Guy seems to be in limbo since losing the IC Title and it should be interesting to see what creative does with him next.
16. Big Show
Big Show got crushed by lesnar at WWE Live from Madison Square Garden. While the Big Show is considered boring and over the hill by some, it was cool to see another chapter unfold in this classic rivalry. This is probably the last time we'll see Show and Lesnar go at it in a WWE ring.
Cesaro picked up a couple wins this week against Heath Slater and Bo Dallas on Superstars and Main Event, respectively. Although it sucks that he is being relegated to WWE's second string shows, Cesaro always puts on a great performance whether its against a jobber or a champion, whether its a house show or at WrestleMania. Hopefully we'll see him pick up more wins and actually get utilized by creative.
14. Lucha Dragons
Lucha Dragons picked up a win against The Ascension on Superstars. They then picked up a win in a 6-man match on SmackDown as they teamed with Neville against (surprise!) The Ascension and Stardust. I wish this feud would end already so The Lucha Dragons can get their chance to shine in the actual tag-team division.
Sheamus was defeated in tag action at WWE Live from Madison Square Garden. He did, however, land a Brogue Kick on his partner for the night, Rusev, after the match.
Neville continues to battle with Stardust and the Ascension. He had a ver good week as he had two singles victories over Stardust and a 6-man tag match victory against Stardust and Ascension.
11. Dean Ambrose
We didn't see much of Ambrose in the ring this week, but he did manage to gain a victory over King Barrett on Main Event.
10. Randy Orton
Orton is arguably the most over guy in the company right now. Despite his absence from the Main Event picture, and any real feud to be involved in, Orton is still insanely popular. The crowds have been going especially nuts for Orton lately, and the famous "RKO out of nowhere" memes that have been around for a year or so have elevated Orton into a true pop culture symbol that transcends pro wrestling.
9. Kevin Owens
Owens had a huge night at WWE Live from Madison Square Garden where he retained the IC Title against Chris Jericho. Consistent with his character, Owens used dirty tactics to defeat Jericho. Owens is a great heel champ, and I hope to see him get embroiled in an awesome feud with someone like Jericho, who can keep up with Owens on every level.
On a side note, I definitely marked out when it looked like Owens was about to give Jericho a package piledriver during their match at MSG. He gave him some kind of side slam instead. It was pretty cool, but it was no package piledriver.
8. Dudley Boyz
The Dudley Boyz faced an upset on Raw when they were defeated, along with, John Cena, in 6-man action against New Day. They picked up a big victory, however, on SmackDown as they teamed up with Kane to take out Rollins and New Day. At WWE Live from Madison Square Garden they won by DQ against New Day, but of course didn't win the titles.
7. Roman Reigns
Roman Reigns had an awesome match against Bray Wyatt on the main event of this week's Raw. The match ended in a double count out, but it proved what I've been saying for a while. That is, Reigns is finally coming into his own as a performer and he keeps improving every week. They tore the house down on Monday and put on a Raw main event that was actually worth watching.
6. The New Day
The New Day are the hottest tag-team to come around in a while, and for good reason. These 3 men took a ridiculous gimmick and ran with it until they struck gold. While they technically lost at WWE Live from Madison Square Garden, they are still the tag-team champs. Plus, they pulled off a huge upset on Raw by defeating The Dudley Boyz and John Cena. I am looking forward to the next installment of the Dudley vs. New Day feud.
5. The Wyatt Family
The Wyatt family continues to dismantle everything in their path. Strowman and Harper flexed their tag-team muscles this Monday on Raw by defeating the Prime Time Players. Braun Strowman also picked up a victory on Main Event against Curtis Axel.
4. Brock Lesnar
Lesnar returned this Saturday at WWE Live from Madison Square Garden. He dismantled to Big Show and fulfilled his contractual obligation to appear whenever the hell he feels like it. I would like to see Lesnar on TV a little more. Even though Heyman's mic work when Lesnar isn't there is incredible, it's not the same as having the Beast Incarnate standing next to him in the ring.
3. Seth Rollins
Seth Rollins had a rough week. He was tombstoned by Kane on Raw, lost in 6-man tag action on SmackDown, and lost to Cena at WWE Live from Madison Square Garden. Despite all of this, however, he is still the WWE Champion and never fails to deliver the best matches on any card he appears on.
Kane's greatest talent as a performer is his ability to reinvent himself, and that is what we are seeing in this current storyline. The supernatural elements bring back the classic Kane character, while the split personality angle is something fresh and different for a wrestler whose character had gotten very stale over the years. I am glad he is a getting a decent push in the twilight of his career because he can still work when he is in the ring with the right people.
1. John Cena
Cena may not hold the top prize in the company, but he is without a doubt still the top guy. He reopened the U.S. Championship open challenge on Raw, which will do nothing but improve WWE programming. At WWE Live from Madison Square Garden, he successfully defended the U.S. Title against Seth Rollins in a steel cage. I am looking forward to see who answers the call this Monday to compete for the belt.
Do you think anyone should be listed differently?
What can these Superstars do to get back up at the #1 spot?
