WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #237 - The Go-Home Shows Before The Grandest Stage | 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

Note: Following WrestleMania 35, I have decided to do a hard reset of the Power Rankings, and the Top 10 will be those I judged to have had the best WrestleMania week. So here are the final standings for the 2018/19 season of the Power Rankings - enjoy!

10. War Raiders [NR]

The War Raiders haven't been featured heavily since winning the NXT Tag Team Championships in Phoenix, but they made up for lost time on Wednesday when they defeated a couple of no-name jobbers and Cezar Bononi and Adrian Jaoude back-to-back in a great display of dominance.

9. Daniel Bryan [-1]

Yet another awesome promo segment by Daniel Bryan in the contract signing between him and Kofi Kingston. For many people, the WWE Championship has come from nowhere to become the match they're most looking forward to, and Bryan will be sure to pull out another incredible performance on the grandest stage.

8. The Miz [NR]

While SAnitY has certainly lost all credibility since stepping onto the SmackDown roster, one man beating three is going to turn some heads. The Miz made the next step in his badass babyface transition by overcoming all three members of SAnitY in a fun Falls Count Anywhere match, building momentum for his deeply personal match with Shane McMahon at WrestleMania.

7. Finn Balor [-3]

How exciting - the Demon is returning at WrestleMania. Well that's really got me on tenterhooks for the Intercontinental Championship match now. In essence, Finn Balor just had a short video package on Raw and was entirely absent otherwise.

6. Charlotte Flair [+1]

The SmackDown Women's Champion teamed with her WrestleMania rivals Ronda Rousey and Becky Lynch on Raw to defeat The Riott Squad, before engaging in one of the most entertaining brawls in the show's storied history. Plus, Charlotte Flair was responsible for arguably the most memorable moment, as her knee strike to Rousey leaning out of a car window will be a go-to GIF forever more.

5. Becky Lynch [NR or -# or +1]

Leading into the biggest match of her career, Becky Lynch is the people's pick and the hot favorite to walk out of WrestleMania as the "Champ Champ". The Man built up to this by being part of Raw's entertaining brawl and victory over The Riott Squad, followed by a solid promo segment on SmackDown.

4. Samoa Joe [+1]

After several weeks of suffering the curse of being United States Champion, Samoa Joe got back to winning ways on SmackDown Live with a dominant victory over Ali, giving him some much-needed momentum before he faces Rey Mysterio (if the masked man is healthy that is).

3. The New Day [-1]

There is no match on the WrestleMania card I'm looking forward to more than Kofi Kingston's first one-on-one opportunity for the WWE Championship when he takes on Daniel Bryan. An impassioned contract signing on SmackDown was the precursor to this showdown, with Kofimania running wild as this captivating story approaches its conclusion.

2. Aleister Black & Ricochet [-1]

The in-form tag team in WWE right now had a rare misstep on Raw, as a crafty count-out at the hands of The Revival kept them from winning the Raw Tag Team Championships. However, after WrestleMania 35 they could be double champions, with matches against War Machine in NXT and a Fatal Four-Way for the SmackDown Tag Team titles looming.

1. Ronda Rousey [+2]

It feels fitting that the final Power Rankings before the WrestleMania Reset goes to Ronda Rousey after the incredible debut year she has enjoyed. Now walking into the first women's main event of WrestleMania as Raw Women's Champion, Rousey secured the victory for her team over The Riott Squad on Raw and got stuck into the thrilling post-match brawl.

HONORABLE MENTIONS


Baron Corbin - The records will always show that Baron Corbin was the victor in the main event of the go-home Raw to WrestleMania 35, as he defeated Rey Mysterio.

Asuka - She might have lost the chance to have a SmackDown Women's Championship match at WrestleMania 35, but at least Asuka got to throw Jeff Hardy over the top rope at the end of a pointless multi-person mixed tag match.

Seth Rollins - Although his Royal Rumble victory and Universal Championship challenge have fallen under the radar, Seth Rollins at least got the better of Brock Lesnar on the final Raw leading into their match at WrestleMania.

The Revival - It was a rare victory for Raw's Tag Team Champions this week as they managed to sneak a victory over Aleister Black & Ricochet and retain their titles, but only on a count-out.

Divas of Doom - Beth Phoenix looks like she hasn't lost a step as she returned to action on Raw, teaming with Natalya and The Boss & Hug Connection to defeat The IIconics, Nia Jax and Tamina Snuka.

BIGGEST MOVES THIS WEEK

Ronda Rousey +2
Finn Balor -3
