WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: 213 - What Went Down at Super Show-Down? | 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. Ricochet [NR]

In unquestionably one of the best WWE matches of the year, Ricochet fought off the challenge of both Adam Cole and Pete Dunne to retain his NXT North American Championship in a hotly contested three-way blockbuster. Winning such an incredible match earns Ricochet a spot on this week's highly-coveted rankings.

9. Bobby Lashley [NR]

Finally, we got to witness the Bobby Lashley we all wanted to see from the moment he returned to WWE on Raw. After a victory in an incredibly stale tag team match at Super Show-Down, Lashley turned heel in glorious fashion on Monday, defeating an injured Kevin Owens and mercilessly decimating his legs after the bell.

8. Buddy Murphy [NR]

Rejoice as 205 Live has a fresh new titleholder atop the mountain. Returning home to Melbourne, Australia for Super Show-Down, Buddy Murphy ended the near 7-month reign of Cedric Alexander to become the new Cruiserweight Champion.

7. Daniel Bryan [NR]

Daniel Bryan is back in the WWE Championship picture, and did so in record time, defeating The Miz in little over two minutes to become the number one contender. Now, we can look forward to a highly-anticipated dream match between The Yes Man and The Phenomenal One, AJ Styles.

6. Becky Lynch [-3]

While Becky Lynch remains SmackDown Live Women's Champion, results matter on these Power Rankings. And Lynch was unable to secure a single victory, getting intentionally disqualified against Charlotte Flair at Super Show-Down, before a double count-out and nasty spear through an LED board in the rematch on SmackDown Live.

5. The Shield [-1]

The Shield were poised to take a big leap up following Super Show-Down, after defeating The Dogs of War in a gutsy effort at the event. However, the curse of the rematch struck them as well, as Dean Ambrose was pinned by Drew McIntyre in the return six-man tag, with more seeds sown for a potential Ambrose heel turn.

4. Randy Orton [+1]

While Randy Orton didn't make the journey Down Under for Super Show-Down, he booked his journey to Saudi Arabia for Crown Jewel with a victory over a returning Big Show on SmackDown Live in a World Cup qualifying match.

3. The Dogs of War [-2]

The Dogs of War slip from top spot this week after falling short at Super Show-Down against The Shield, with Braun Strowman eating a barricade and Dolph Ziggler pinned by Dean Ambrose. But, they did get more than a measure of revenge on Raw, with Drew McIntyre scoring a pin over Ambrose in a return six-man tag.

2. Ronda Rousey [No Change]

While it was an unhappy ending to Raw for Ronda Rousey at the hands of the treacherous Bella Twins, she did pick up two wins along the way. Before the Bella betrayal, they and Rousey overcame The Riott Squad in six-woman tags on both Super Show-Down and Raw two days later.

1. AJ Styles [+6]

A simply phenomenal week for AJ Styles rockets him to the top of this week's Power Rankings. Styles successfully defended his WWE Championship once again over Samoa Joe at Super Show-Down in decisive fashion, and carried this momentum into SmackDown Live with a victory over Shelton Benjamin. Plus, he even picked up the win in his Mixed Match Challenge match later the same night.

HONORABLE MENTIONS


Kurt Angle - It was a surprise return for Raw's currently vacationing General Manager this week, as he eliminated Baron Corbin from a battle royal to qualify for the World Cup Tournament at Crown Jewel.

The IIconics - Two more homegrown heroes picked up a win at Super Show-Down, as Billie Kay and Peyton Royce defeated the odd couple of Asuka and Naomi.

The New Day - The New Day are still your WWE SmackDown Live Tag Team Champions after a routine win over The Bar at Super Show-Down.

The Bella Twins - Two victories for The Bella Twins at Super Show-Down and Raw respectively, and then they stole the headlines by beating up their partner Ronda Rousey and staking a claim for the Raw Women's Championship.

Keith Lee - After a week like this it's hard not to bask in Keith Lee's glory, as he crushed Kona Reeves in impressive fashion to continue his unbeaten start to life in NXT.

BIGGEST MOVES THIS WEEK

AJ Styles: +6
Becky Lynch: -3
