Power Ranking WWE wrestlers list roster

25. Michael Cole 

The silver-tongued announcer unfortunately let Bruan Strowman get his hands on him and slammed him off of the stage in a tantrum of rage after fired and then re-hired.

24. Paige

Recent events has put Paige's future in jeopardy, with reports coming out that her n-ring career could likely be over after a scare neck injury sustained by a kick to the back by Sasha Banks.

23. Kurt Angle

The Raw General Manager angered The Monster Among Men when he fired him to open the show after he nearly incapacitated Lesnar and Kane last week. He set the giant into a warpath, who even tipped over a production truck and manhandling Michael Cole before he was forced to re-hire Braun.

22. Sasha Banks

Banks has come under heavy fire from the WWE Universe after he kick to the back of Paige led to her possible career-ending injury. To add more heat to her, Sonya Deville pinned her in a one-on-one match/

21. The Bar

Sheamus's injury might be as serious as we all think. He and Cesaro aren't getting much of a push lately, losing to Titus Worldwide twice now. Sheamus could be on the last leg of his career at this point.

20. Nia Jax

Jax stepped forward as a formidable opponent to the undefeated Asuka and was granted a match wth her. Sadly, she was injured in their match and it led to the ref calling it off.

19. Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin

Backstage, Gable and Benjamin ambushed The Usos during an interview. The duo is trying whatever they can to gain the upper hand for their title rematch at the Royal Rumble.

18. Shayna Baszler

Lacey Evans started to call out the locker room after her victory on NXT, but headed for the hills when Baszler appeared and her mere appearance has the ability to scare off the other talent.

17. Jason Jordan

Jordan is not on good terms with Rollins, but at least he played a role in aiding his tag partner to get the better of Finn Balor in the Monday night main event.

16. Cedric Alexander

Alexander is continuing to rack up wins over Amore and the Zo Train squad. Whenever Amore is healthy enough for their rematch, Alexander will be the heavy favorite.

15. The Miz

Miz gets his title rematch next week on the 25th Anniversary episode of Raw, but Reigns won't give p the title so easily.

14. Johnny Gargano

Ahead of his NXT Championship match, Gargano cut a great promo. His character is shaping up nicely and he is so sure that he is better than Cien that he put his Number One Contendership on the line against Velveteen Dream.

13. "Woken" Matt Hardy

Hardy's character has reached its full completion and is a very dangerous and intense competitor, putting away Heath Slater with ease.

12. The Revival

The Revival are back and calling out everyone. They called out the legends who will return for the anniversary episode next week. They may have a large target on their back now.

11. Jinder Mahal

Mahal may have shot himself in the foot and lost the US title tournament due to his own actions. He beat Xavier Woods to reach the finals, but he assaulted Bobby Roode. This led to the finals happening later that night and on no rest, Mahal lost the match.

10. Riott Squad

The Riott Squad was victorious over the top women on SmackDown, overpowering Naomi for the win. 

9. Finn Balor

Balor was booked in a dream main event with Seth Rollins and they clicked together in the ring. Even with multiple distractions, Balor was unsuccessful when Rollins dusted off his old Curb Stomp finisher (renamed the Blackout).

8. Roman Reigns

Reigns was able to take out both Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas on his own and set The Miz retreating.

7. Titus Worldwide

Fluke or not, Titus's group is continuing to get wins over an established tag team.

6. Sonya Deville

Sonya was given her personal moment to shine, taking on Sasha Banks and being able to dominate the veteran for a win. Sonya's match showed she has great potential as a dangerous powerhouse.

5. Asuka

The Empress looked to have found her match in Nia Jax, but in their first match together, Jax was injured and there was a no-contest.

4. Authors of Pain

The former NXT Tag Team Champions squashed The Street Profits for a chance at the titles once more.

3. Seth Rollins

booked in the main event with Finn Balor, the two men stole the night. Rollins won the brawl when he shockingly used his once-banned Curb Stomp finisher, now renamed.

2. Bobby Roode

He beat Mojo Rawley earlier in the show and beat Jinder Mahal later the same night to win the US Championship, his first title in WWE.

1. Braun Strowman

Braun was utterly fired his harsh assault on his Rumble opponents, but made Angle pay for letting him go. He would go on to tip over a production semi-truck and even assault Michael Cole before Stephanie McMahon forced Angle to reinstate Braun before he brought down the whole arena.
