WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #250 - Entering The Era Of Extreme? | 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. Nikki Cross [-1]

Nikki Cross was able to defend the honor of Alexa Bliss on Raw by exacting a swift defeat on Carmella. However, the Schizophrenic Scot could not follow that up with another victory on SmackDown, falling to the blue brand's Women's Champion Bayley.

9. Daniel Bryan & Erick Rowan [+1]

Daniel Bryan enjoyed a fun little man vs big man encounter on this week's SmackDown, capitalizing on the chaos that Rowan was causing at ringside to defeat Big E one-on-one.

8. Shayna Baszler [-1]

Following her successful title defense against Io Shirai inside a steel cage last week, Shayna Baszler received the week off to rest up, with the focus more on the fallout between Shirai and Candice LeRae.

7. Samoa Joe [NR]

On Raw, Samoa Joe achieved a feat few have been able to match in all of 2019 - forcing Kofi Kingston to pass out in their tag team match. This marks the first defeat the WWE Champion has suffered since capturing the title, leading into Joe's title match at Extreme Rules.

6. Ricochet [-1]

Although Ricochet was able to successfully defend his United States Championship against AJ Styles in Raw's main event, it was only after it had seemed Styles had won. And, as a reward for his efforts, Ricochet suffered a three-on-one beatdown at the hands of the fully reformed Club of Styles, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson.

5. The Undisputed Era [+1]

While Adam Cole's awesome NXT Championship Tour continues, the in-ring focus switched to Roderick Strong this week in a great main event with Tyler Breeze. Strong scored a victory, continuing his path towards a North American Championship opportunity.

4. Becky Lynch [No Change]

In one of the most soap opera-style matches in recent WWE history, Becky Lynch teamed with Seth Rollins and took advantage of the marital strife between Mike & Maria Kanellis, with The Man forcing Mike to tap out to the Dis-Arm-Her (or, in this case, Dis-Arm-Him).

3. The New Day [-2]

For the first time in months, The New Day has been knocked off the top of the Power Rankings after their worst week in ages. On Raw, they lost a six-man tag to Samoa Joe and The Viking Raiders, with Kofi Kingston passing out in Joe's clutches, and on SmackDown Big E fell to the running knee of Daniel Bryan.

2. Bayley [+1]

Making up for her upset loss to Nikki Cross last week, SmackDown Women's Champion defeated the Scot on Tuesday night, building momentum for her next title defense against Alexa Bliss at Extreme Rules.

1. Seth Rollins [+1]

The Universal Champion teamed with his real-life beau Becky Lynch to defeat another true couple, Mike & Maria Kanellis. Seth Rollins and The Man were a well-oiled machine in the build to their mixed-tag at Extreme Rules, defeating the tumultuous Mike & Maria with consummate ease.

HONORABLE MENTIONS


The Miz - Although he remains mired in obscurity on the outskirts of this Roman Reigns/Shane McMahon feud, at least The Miz was able to defeat Elias in a two-out-of-three falls match on Raw.

Heavy Machinery - Otis & Tucker will get another chance to capture SmackDown Tag Team gold at Extreme Rules, as they defeated Kevin Owens and Dolph Ziggler to make it a Triple Threat match at the PPV.

Tony Nese - As he awaits the opportunity to recapture his Cruiserweight Championship at Extreme Rules, Tony Nese scored the victory in the six-man tag main event on 205 Live.

Mia Yim - With Io Shirai and Candice LeRae now locked in their own feud, Mia Yim asserted her position as the next number one contender to Shayna Baszler by defeating Aaliyah on NXT.

The Viking Raiders - Two weeks of exposure for The Viking Raiders on Raw, as they supported Samoa Joe to defeat The New Day in a six-man tag.
