WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #219 - Who Survived Survivor Series? | 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. Buddy Murphy [NR]

205 Live received a rare spotlight at Survivor Series on Sunday, and took full advantage by producing one of the night's best matches. In the end, Buddy Murphy withstood a tough challenge by Mustafa Ali to retain his Cruiserweight Championship.

9. Rey Mysterio [-6]

After a red-hot return to WWE, Rey Mysterio hit a roadblock this week. First, he was unable to help SmackDown win the Men's Elimination Tag at Survivor Series. Then, on Tuesday, Mysterio was picked apart and beaten down by Randy Orton in the night's main event, so he takes a tumble down the Power Rankings.

8. Nia Jax [NR]

As much as it pains me to include a serial injurer on the Power Rankings, Nia Jax is being pushed strong off the back of breaking Becky Lynch's face. She followed up being the sole survivor in the Women's Elimination Tag at Survivor Series by teaming with Tamina Snuka to defeat Sasha Banks and Bayley on Raw.

7. AOP [No Change]

A mixed week for the newly christened AOPee. The Raw Tag Team Champions were victorious over The Bar at Survivor Series, despite Drake Maverick losing control of his bladder. But, when they returned to Raw the next night, they were shocked by Bobby Roode and Chad Gable, who likely will be their next challengers.

6. Charlotte Flair [NR]

She couldn't secure the victory at Survivor Series, but after her match with Ronda Rousey, everyone was talking about Charlotte Flair's violent outburst post-match, breaking the Raw Women's Champion like never before. Flair followed this up with victories over both of the IIconics back-to-back on SmackDown.

5. Tommaso Ciampa [NR]

The Greatest Superstar in WWE History still stands on top of the mountain in NXT. Overcoming a true test by the Velveteen Dream at TakeOver: WarGames 2, Tommaso Ciampa flattened him with a draping DDT and continued his strong reign as NXT Champion.

4. Becky Lynch [-3]

Sadly, the injuries suffered by Becky Lynch at the wayward hand of Nia Jax kept her out of both Survivor Series and SmackDown this week. With no timetable set for her return, The Man could lose her spot on the Power Rankings before too long.

3. Daniel Bryan [-2]

Daniel Bryan is once again WWE Champion, but wasn't able to get off to the perfect start. His match with Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series was one for the ages, and a true testament to Bryan's greatness. But, despite giving all he could, Bryan joined the list of those that have fallen to the F-5.

2. Brock Lesnar [+8]

In the battle between both brands' top champions, Brock Lesnar was once again dominant. Though Daniel Bryan gave him a sterner challenge than many were expecting, the Universal Champion successfully completed a clean sweep for Team Raw.

1. Ronda Rousey [+3]

While she ended Survivor Series bloody, beaten and almost broken, the record books will show that Ronda Rousey defeated Charlotte Flair by disqualification, maintaining her unbeaten run. Then, despite the violence she suffered on Sunday, Rousey successfully defended her Raw Women's Championship against Mickie James on Monday.

HONORABLE MENTIONS


Shayna Baszler - Although her fellow Horsewoman Ronda Rousey had a Sunday to forget, Shayna Baszler had a Saturday to cherish, defeating Kairi Sane to retain the NXT Women's Championship.

The Usos - While it didn't end up counting in the grand scheme of things, The Usos gave SmackDown their one glimmer of light at Survivor Series by winning the Tag Team Elimination Tag as sole survivors.

Seth Rollins - In the clash of Intercontinental and United States Champions, Seth Rollins out-fought Shinsuke Nakamura, delivering the killer Curb Stomp for the victory.

Aleister Black - An outstanding return match for Aleister Black at NXT TakeOver: WarGames 2, defeating the man that took him out of commission for months, Johnny Gargano.

Braun Strowman - Braun Strowman led Team Raw to victory at Survivor Series with four eliminations to his name, earning the right to get his hands on Baron Corbin at TLC. That is if he makes it to that show, with his elbow injury potentially ruling him out for the foreseeable future.

BIGGEST MOVES THIS WEEK

Brock Lesnar +8
Rey Mysterio -6
