WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #246 - A Jaunt Through Jeddah at 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. Mansoor [NR]

It might have been pandering to the home country and meaningless in the long-run, but Mansoor shined in the Saudi spotlight by defeating 49 other men in the 50-Man Battle Royal at Super ShowDown, receiving a rousing ovation from his hometown crowd.

9. Shayna Baszler [NR]

Only three things in life are certain - death, taxes, and Shayna Baszler is NXT Women's Champion. The Queen of Spades secured another title defense at NXT Takeover XXV against Io Shirai, even though she had to suffer several kendo stick shots after the bell rang.

8. Mia Yim [+1]

Mia Yim maintains her spot on the Power Rankings after securing back-to-back victories over the rarely defeated Bianca Belair on the latest edition of NXT. These big wins should set Yim up for a shot to take down Shayna Baszler, but will her momentum carry her onto claiming the gold?

7. Brock Lesnar [-2]

While I'd never say it to his face, Brock Lesnar was a real dummy this week. With Seth Rollins beaten on Raw, Mr. Money in the Bank decided to wait and cash-in at Super ShowDown. There, following a stumble by Paul Heyman, Lesnar was low-blowed and beaten by Rollins with a chair, stopping The Beast before he could hand over his briefcase.

6. The Street Profits [NR]

In one of the most hectic, dangerous and exhilarating ladder matches in WWE history, The Street Profits finally realized their potential and captured the NXT Tag Team Championships at Takeover XXV. That will hopefully go a long way to easing the pain of the bumps and bruises they're likely still recovering from.

5. Adam Cole [NR]

There's a new NXT Champion, bay-bay! Adam Cole made good on his promise to become the Undisputed Champion by defeating Johnny Gargano in another instant classic. With Undisputed Era behind him, it might be a while before that title is stripped from Cole's waist.

4. Bayley [-1]

Bayley was kept largely out of the spotlight this week as the focus was on determining her next challenger. That ended up being Alexa Bliss, meaning we'll see a repeat of their 'classic' feud from a couple of years ago. Still, for now, the SmackDown Women's Champion is being booked strong.

3. Becky Lynch [-1]

The Raw Women's Champion was also not in action this week, but Becky Lynch at least got physical. Lynch was one of the unfortunate people watching the Charlotte Flair / Lacey Evans fiasco on Monday, ending it by disqualification when she took out Flair and hit the Manhandle Slam on Evans.

2. Seth Rollins [+2]

Against all speculation, Seth Rollins left Saudi Arabia still holding the Universal Championship. The Beast Slayer lived up to that moniker after retaining his title at Super ShowDown against Baron Corbin, by then stopping Brock Lesnar from cashing in on him with a low blow, steel chair, and a Curb Stomp.

1. The New Day [No Change]

The sun refuses to set on Kofi Kingston's reign as WWE Champion. After teaming with Xavier Woods to defeat Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn on SmackDown, Kingston received an assist from his New Day cohort to defeat Dolph Ziggler at Super ShowDown.

HONORABLE MENTIONS


Velveteen Dream - The North American Championship is still enjoying its Velveteen experience after Dream defeated the returning hero Tyler Breeze at Takeover XXV.

Alexa Bliss - Capitalizing on the woeful state of this Wildcard Rule era, Raw superstar Alexa Bliss defeated Charlotte Flair and Carmella on SmackDown to become number one contender for Bayley's title at Stomping Grounds.

Shane McMahon - In one of the many baffling booking decisions of Super ShowDown, Shane McMahon inflicted Roman Reigns first defeat in singles competition since July 2018. Yes, Shane McMahon.

Finn Balor - Dressed in full Demon garb, Finn Balor successfully defended his Intercontinental Championship at Super ShowDown against Andrade.

Braun Strowman - In a battle of the behemoths, Braun Strowman out-powered the Almighty Bobby Lashley to claim a victory at Super ShowDown.
