WWE Power Rankings Top 25 Superstars This Week #178 | Smark Out Moment

WWE Power Rankings Top 25 Superstars This Week #178

Posted by Wes Keefer Friday, January 12, 2018
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. Jason Jordan

A tag team champion ranked at the bottom? For Jason Jordan, yes this is the case. He butchered his promo at the beginning of the show and is a clear weakest link on his team. Reigns voiced his frustration at the rookie.

24. Enzo Amore

Fresh off his illness, Amore is now wounded and banged up pretty badly and could end up losing his spotlight and the championship sooner than later. He never really got any offense going in his match.

23. Absolution

Of the two new female groups, Absolution is the least dangerous as of late. They suffered another lost and are losing their label as "dangerous threat". On a positive note, Sonya and Mandy are starting to blossom into legitimate wrestlers.

22. Asuka

Asuka was teamed with the returning Miz for the Mixed Match Challenge, but Nia Jax now has her sights on the undefeated Empress. It was the first time we've seen Asuka laid out by a single person since her debut on Raw.

21. Kane

Kane has been able to blindside the champion recently, but Braun got the last laugh on Monday night. He dropped the backstage equipment down onto Kane and Lesnar to gain the upper hand.

20. Breezango

Tired of getting pummeled by the Bludgeon Brothers, Breezango left the Ascension to their mercy and instead won an upset victory over Rusev and English.

19. The Bar

Speaking of upset victories, The Bar suffered from one when Apollo Crews scored a schoolboy pin and left Sheamus and Cesaro lost for words.

18. Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn

Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn have lost control of "their" show when Shane McMahon restarted their match twice when the duo tried getting out of their match via count-out and DQ.

17. Bludgeon Brothers

They took down the Ascension once more when their back-up in Breezango left them hanging. It's past due for a match between them and a contender.

16. Matt Hardy

Since becoming "Woken", Matt Hardy had his re-debut match against Curt Hawkins, which to no surprise was a victory.

15. Brock Lesnar

The Beast Incarnated is in serious trouble of being the underdog when the backstage equipment came crashing down on him and Kane by the hands of Braun, pun intended.

14. Sasha Banks and Bayley


The women of Raw are finally gaining traction and momentum over Absolution. Banks and Bayley were able to pick up the victory. 

13. Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins

Without Ambrose, they aren't The Shield. With Jason Jordan, they even lose some of their credibility. The two titleholders will think again before asking JJ to replace the Lunatic.

12. Samoa Joe

Samoa Joe ran right through Rhyno and afterwards promised to eliminate Cena at the Royal Rumble. However, due to an injury suffered in his match, Joe could easily miss the Rumble.

11. Cedric Alexander

You are looking at your new Cruiserweight Champion, well soon to be. It's inevitable that Alexander wins the title after he man-handled Amore and left him bruised and bloodied even.

10. Mojo Rawley

Rawley advanced in the US Championship tournament when he quickly disposed of Ryder. His heel persona is developing nicely and he is even putting forth great promos, granted they are on social media and not live air yet. 

9. Shane McMahon

Shane-O-Mac continues to play his power card to the disadvantage of Owens and Zayn, restarting their match twice after they tried taking the easy way out.

8. Titus WorldWide

2018 has been kind to Titus Worldwide, as they are climbing towards contendership after sneaking a win away from former champions, The Bar.

7. Nia Jax

Jax has put her romantic storyline on hold for the moment and decided to turn her attention to Asuka, who she left lying in the ring after a confrontation. Bliss seems to be using Jax as a way to get rid of her new contender.

6. Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin

A week removed from winning and losing the tag team titles via controversy, Gable and Benjamin pleaded for a chance to prove themselves. They were rewarded with a 2-out-of-3 falls match at the Royal Rumble.

5. AJ Styles

With some help from Shane McMahon, Styles was able to get physical with Owens and Zayn and avoid ending up on the losing side of things for a change.

4. Becky Lynch

In her first match since returning from filming Marine 6, Lynch went toe-to-toe with Ruby Riott and was able to trap her in the Diss-Arm-Her.

3. Balor and The Club

Balor and his partners were able to put away The Shield 2.0 and continue a newfound dominance for all three men.

2. The Miz

He's back and it's awesome. The Miz returned to Raw to vow to regain his championship from Reigns and even left The Big Dog lying prone after a beating. The cherry on top is that Asuka was named Miz's partner for the Mixed Match Challenge.

1. Braun Strowman

After all three men in the Universal Championship match trading blows and momentum, Braun gained the biggest advantage when he brought the sound stage crashing down on both Lesnar and Kane after he left both men beaten.

Do you think anyone should be listed differently?
