WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #211 - On the Road to Super Showdown | 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

10. Aiden English [NR]

Building on last week's split from Rusev, Aiden English created all the intrigue for the upcoming episode of SmackDown by simply mentioning Lana and Milwaukee. While I'm still skeptical of his longevity as a solo act, English is off to a dramatic start.

9. The New Day [-4]

The SmackDown Tag Team Champions aren't heading into their title defense at Super Showdown in the best of form as they tumble down the rankings, with The New Day's latest loss coming on SmackDown Live when Sheamus defeated Big E.

8. The Riott Squad [NR]

While the match itself will be remembered for all the wrong reasons, The Riott Squad did seal a win over Natalya and The Bella Twins on Raw, giving them a good platform for the scheduled six-woman tag with Ronda Rousey at Super Showdown.

7. Ronda Rousey [-4]

Raw Women's Champion Ronda Rousey takes a tumble down the rankings this week after not appearing on the latest episode of Raw. Instead, her friends Natalya and The Bella Twins suffered a defeat to The Riott Squad in her absence.

6. Tommaso Ciampa [NR]

The NXT Champion has been on a roll for most of 2018, and made a rare in-ring appearance this Wednesday in a highly entertaining match with Otis Dozovic. Despite the massive size difference, Tommaso Ciampa sealed the win with two draping DDTs.

5. AJ Styles [-3]

AJ Styles didn't have a match this week, and by the end of the night he likely wished he wasn't at SmackDown Live at all. Instead of having a contract signing for his next WWE Championship defense, Styles could only watch helplessly as Samoa Joe circled his family's home instead.

4. The Miz [+4]

The Miz wasn't battling for a championship or opportunity on SmackDown Live this week - he was fighting for his talk show! He won back the right to host Miz TV by defeating R-Truth in the opening match of the show, with Daniel Bryan watching along on commentary.

3. The Shield [+3]

The Shield competed as a trio for the first time in nearly a year in Raw's main event, as they defeated Baron Corbin and AOP. This question is how long they will remain a collective on these rankings, with seeds being sown for a Dean Ambrose heel turn throughout the episode.

2. Becky Lynch [-1]

The SmackDown Women's Champion spent this Tuesday asserting her dominance over her division. Becky Lynch began this by beating up Charlotte Flair backstage during a photoshoot, and concluded with a straightforward victory over Lana.

1. The Dogs of War [+3]

While Braun Strowman was once again not competing in the ring on this week's Raw, Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre carried the load by successfully defending the Raw Tag Team Championships against The Revival in arguably the best match of the entire week.

HONORABLE MENTIONS


The Bar - It won't be long before The Bar find their way onto the Power Rankings proper if they continue to rack up wins over The New Day, especially if they win the SmackDown Tag Team Championships at Super Showdown.

The Mighty - In perhaps their best match since joining NXT, The Mighty had a very good match with The Street Profits and picked up the win after targeting Montez Ford's knee.

Nia Jax - Nia Jax is back with back-to-back wins on Monday Night Raw, defeating Alicia Fox this week in fairly dominant fashion.

Finn Balor - Finn Balor might be a little lost in the shuffle right now, but kept to his recent winning ways by defeating Jinder Mahal on Raw.

The Revival - Despite failing to capture the Raw Tag Team Championships against Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre on Monday, The Revival received their loudest crowd reactions since joining the main roster and put on a fantastic performance.

BIGGEST MOVES THIS WEEK

The Miz+4
Ronda Rousey & The New Day-4
