WWE Power Rankings Top 25 Superstars This Week: #199: Bliss Reigns Supreme in the Aftermath of Money in the Bank | Smark Out Moment
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?

Here is the key code for the rankings shorthand when referencing their position in relation to the previous week:

NR = Not included in last week's rankings at all
+ Green = the number of moves up in the rankings compared to last week
- Red = the number of moves down in the rankings compared to last week
Honorable Mentions = five superstars who just barely missed the cut

Power Ranking WWE wrestlers list roster

25. DELETERS OF WORLDS [NR]

The Raw tag team champs are in action more with their contenders continuing to loom in the background and mock them.

24. BECKY LYNCH [NR]

Lynch bounced back from failing at MITB by defeating Billie Kay.

23. BARON CORBIN [+2]

The constable for Raw was in action in the main event against Balor and Braun. Corbin scored the huge pin for the victory.

22. HIDEO ITAMI [NR]

Hideo battled both men he attacked and was able to beat them cleanly.

21. JAMES ELLSWORTH [NR FIRST TIME RANKED]

James Ellsworth made his return to WWE by dressing up as Asuka. It was enough to spook the challenger and allow Carmella to beat her.

20. UNDISPUTED ERA [+1]

The NXT tag champs lost the titles to Moustache Mountain, but reclaimed them just days later.

19. BOBBY LASHLEY [NR]

Due to an injured Zayn, their MITB match was short. This is good for Lashley, who will be in a multi-man match at Extreme Rules for a shot at Lesnar.

18. RIOTT SQUAD [NR]

Logan and Rose beat Banks and Bayley, causing more tension in their relationship.

17. NIA JAX [-9]

Jax was close to losing her title to Rousey, but Bliss swooped in and took the title from Jax before Ronda could.

16. KEVIN OWENS [NR]

Owens suffered the worst fall during the ladder match at MITB. He went after the man who threw him from that ladder in Strowman.

15. THE MIZ [-4]

Miz came up short for the MITB briefcase and was just short in winning number one contendership when he was pinned by Rusev.

14. B-TEAM [-1]

Curtis and Bo mocked their rivals on the big screen and claim they are not scared of the champs.

13. ELIAS [-3]

Rollins took Elias to the limit at MITB. Elias hopes to bounce back by being part of the multi-man match at Extreme Rules.

12. RONDA ROUSEY [+3]

In her first pay-per-view singles match, Ronda was seconds away from claiming her first title. Bliss ran in with the briefcase and stopped that. On Raw, in rage, Ronda went after Bliss and got slapped with a month suspension.

11. DANIEL BRYAN [-2]

Bryan beat Big Cass on Sunday. On Tuesday, he was an iron man in the gauntlet match that he lost due to an attack by the Bludgeon Brothers. At least with Cass released, Bryan gets a new feud.

10. RUSEV [+12]

Rusev took on The Miz in the finals of the gauntlet match and won the right to battle AJ Styles for the title at Extreme Rules.

9. ASUKA [-5]

A returning James Ellsworth cost Asuka her shot at the title.

8. ROMAN REIGNS [+12]

Reigns defeated Mahal at MITB and earned himself a role in the multi-man match for a chance at Lesnar.

7. BLUDGEON BROTHERS [NR]

The blue brand's tag champs beat Gallows and Anderson at MITB and again on SmackDown.

6. SETH ROLLINS [-4]

Rollins had a show-stopper against Elias at MITB, but went back into the ring possibly too soon. Ziggler and McIntyre took advantage of a still battered Rollins and Dolph won the IC title.

5. CARMELLA [NR]

Thanks to the distraction from James Ellsworth, Carmella was able to weasel her way to another title defense victory.

4. THE SHOW [+3]

Dolph hasn't been back long and he now has his first title in quite some time when he defeated Rollins on Raw with help from McIntyre.

3. AJ STYLES [+2]

Styles took Nakamura to the limit and defeated his rival once more in a Last Man Standing match. To top it off, the champ will grace the cover of WWE 2K19.

2. BRAUN STROWMAN [-1]

Look at Brock Lesnar, Mr. Monster in the Bank is on the loose.

1. ALEXA BLISS [NR]

Miss Bliss won the MITB contract and cashed it in later the same night to become a five-time Raw Women's Champion.

HONORABLE MENTIONS


Jinder Mahal - After MITB, Mahal seems to have forgotten about Reigns and battled Chad Gable again for a needed victory.

Bianca Belair - Belair is continuing to show that she will be a future champion in NXT.

Sanity - The group finally debuted on SmackDown, targeting the Usos.

Sasha Banks - Banks took her feud with Bayley up a notch when she got physical with her former friend backstage after a loss.

Finn Balor - Balor had big spots at MITB but lost. He also had a good match on Raw, even if he lost there too.

BIGGEST MOVES THIS WEEK

Roman Reigns/Rusev +12
Nia Jax -9
