25. Bo Dallas
Bo Dallas made an appearance on SmackDown, where he lost to Ryback.
24. Heath Slater
Heath Slater lost to Fandango on Superstars.
23. Zack Ryder
Zack Ryder has found a comfortable spot for himself by jobbing to guys like Stardust on SuperStars. I'm still rooting for yah, broski.
Fandango has a good match with Heath Slater on Superstars where he picked up the victory. A lot of the "jobbers" in WWE are actually really talented workers. I would like to see WWE bring in random "enhancement" talent rather than making guys from their main roster essentially have no other purpose except to job. The way WWE operates now, however, I doubt if that's even feasible.
21. Prime Time Players
The Prime Time Players lost to Strowman and Rowan on Main Event.
20. Tyler Breeze
Tyler Breeze made it onto this week's list for his premiere on SmackDown. The feud that seems to be developing between him and Ziggler should be awesome.
Besides sneaking out to the ring at the end of Charlotte's match at HIAC, Paige spent very little time in front of WWE cameras. She also appeared on SmackDown where she lost to Nikki Bella. I'm still not sure what is going on with her character.
18. The Dudley Boyz
The Dudley Boyz haven't done anything that impressive since their return to WWE. Now that they failed to gain the titles, it will be interesting to see where they go from here.
17. Sasha Banks
Sasha Banks continues to be overshadowed by the other women in the division despite the fact that she is among the most talented and charismatic in the company. She did, however, pick up a win against Brie Bella on Main Event.
16. Rusev, King Barrett, and Sheamus
This team of brutes picked up a victory against Cesaro, Neville and Ziggler on Raw, but couldn't do the same at the HIAC pre-show.
15. Cesaro, Neville, and Ziggler
Numbers 15 and 16 are interchangeable this week on the list, really, but I chose to rank this team higher because Cesaro is (IMO) the best all around worker in the company. His style is cutting edge, but still pays homage to the catch wrestling roots of pro-wrestling. His team picked up a win at the HIAC pre-show against Barrett, Rusev, and Sheamus.
14. Nikki Bella
Nikki Bella failed once again to regain the Divas Championship at HIAC. Nonetheless, her match with Charlotte was awesome, and she has really stepped up her game since the newest crop of women came up from NXT.
Ryback couldn't regain the IC Championship against Owens at HIAC. It will be interesting to see what they do with Ryback going forward, because he seems to still be immensely over with the crowd.
12. Dean Ambrose
Ambrose wasn't at HIAC, but he still is getting both a lot of airtime and a lot of victories in his battle against the Wyatt Family. He even managed to gain a victory, along with Roman Reigns, against the Tag-Team Champs, The New Day, on SmackDown.
Kane didn't defeat Seth Rollins at HIAC, but I enjoyed the match and the feud overall. I hope that Kane is brought into Undertaker's storyline, so we can either see them fight or tag (or both) one last time.
10. John Cena
Apparently John Cena isn't going to be around for a few months. After single handedly restoring dignity to the U.S. Title while simultaneously proving his haters wrong, Cena more than deserves a few months off. Say what you want about Cena, but between the charity work he does and his schedule with WWE, he is easily one of the hardest working people not only in wrestling, but all of showbiz. He really is a phenom and things are never quite the same in WWE when he is gone.
Charlotte retained her title against Nicki Bella at HIAC. It was a pretty good match with some unbelievable moves. Charlotte is definitely one of those rare talents who makes whoever she is in the ring with look 10x better than they actually are.
8. Kevin Owens
Kevin Owens fended off the attempts of Ryback to once again win back the IC Title. I hope his feud with Ryback is over, because it is time Owens is allowed to put on the instant classic show stoppers that we all know he can pull off on the Main Roster.
7. New Day
The New Day continue to dominate the tag-team division. The question I have is this: If The Dudley Boyz were brought back, but not to win the titles, then who will New Day eventually drop the belts to? New Day seem to be on another level than the rest of the tag division, so it will be interesting who is pushed/brought in to defeat them.
6. Wyatt Family
Bray Wyatt couldn't pick up the win against Reigns, but after the ending of HIAC, I don't think anyone will be talking about his match. I can't wait to see where this story goes from here.
5. The Undertaker
The Undertaker and Lesnar feud came to a fitting end in the confines of the Hell in a Cell structure, a match Taker helped to make famous. Although he didn't win against Lesnar, he still managed to put on a captivating performance in a bloody shit-show as only the Dead Man can do. Undertaker was my favorite wrestler as a kid, so seeing him lose always hurts something deep inside. But the writers did their job and made me want to watch Raw tonight by making the Taker get kidnapped by the Wyatt Family. I have to say, that was an awesome ending and pays homage to the theatrical legacy of Undertaker's character.
4. Roman Reigns
I'm not a huge fan of Roman Reigns, but whatever he is doing seems to be working. He seems to be more over than ever with the crowd and is racking up victory after victory in high profile matches.
3. Alberto Del Rio
Del Rio was granted an epic return by beating Cena for the US Title at HIAC. I am glad to see Del Rio back, and the fact that this can be seen as redemption for losing the Heavyweight Championship against Cena in 2013 makes it all the more epic.
2. Brock Lesnar
Lesnar closed the book forever in a classic rivalry with the Undertaker by winning the final chapter of their feud. While the match was nothing spectacular it terms of wrestling mechanics, but it was exactly what HIAC should be: bloody, violent and brutal.
1. Seth Rollins
Coming off a few weeks of losses, Rollins reestablished himself as top dog in WWE with a a win over Kane at HIAC. Rollins is a fantastic wrestler, and is having one hell of a run with the belt. I can't wait to see who he gets embroiled in a feud with next.
Do you think anyone should be listed differently?
What can these Superstars do to get back up at the #1 spot?
