WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #251 - Extreme Drools | Smark Out Moment

WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #251 - Extreme Drools

Posted by Callum Wiggins Friday, July 12, 2019
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. Shinsuke Nakamura [NR]

In a devastatingly dominant display, Shinsuke Nakamura returned to SmackDown Live with a bang when he kicked Intercontinental Champion Finn Balor's head from his shoulders, pinning him to likely secure a title opportunity down the road.
9. Samoa Joe [-2]

Only a few days away from his WWE Championship match at Extreme Rules, Samoa Joe stuck to promos rather than decimating a victim to strike fear in the heart of Kofi Kingston. Not ground-breaking or meaningful, so Joe slides down the rankings.

8. The Street Profits [NR]

Proving to be true fighting champions in NXT, The Street Profits went toe-to-toe with Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch on Wednesday. Successfully defending the titles, Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford defeated their rivals and continued to be effortlessly charismatic in the process.

7. The Undisputed Era [-2]

Despite not being present on NXT this week outside of Kyle O'Reilly & Bobby Fish applauding The Street Profits after their successful title defense, The Undipsuted Era are well-placed for the upcoming Takeover, with all four members likely to be competing for gold.

6. Nikki Cross [+3]

In her quest to hand Alexa Bliss the SmackDown Women's Championship, Nikki Cross secured two wins this week over Dana Brooke on Raw and Carmella on SmackDown. This led to the Extreme Rules title match being switched to a handicap match, stacking the odds against Bayley.

5. Ricochet [+1]

The United States Champion sought to gain a measure of revenge over The Club on Raw, defeating both Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson back-to-back in singles matches. However, for the second week in a row, he was left laid following a 3-on-1 beatdown by AJ Styles and The Club.

4. The New Day [-1]

As a result of Kofi Kingston's injury keeping him out of action and Xavier Woods' defeat in SmackDown's triple threat against Otis Dozovic and Daniel Bryan, The New Day continue their tumble down the Power Rankings.

3. Becky Lynch [+1]

Although Raw's elimination mixed-tag match was needlessly nonsensical, Becky Lynch at least looked dominant in quickly forcing Zelina Vega to tap out, building momentum for the winner takes all mixed-tag match at Extreme Rules.

2. Bayley [No Change]

Bayley did score a clear victory over Sarah Logan on Raw, but it wasn't quick enough to win the Beat The Clock Challenge over Nikki Cross. This means she'll have to defend her SmackDown Women's Championship against both Cross and Alexa Bliss in a handicap match at Extreme Rules.

1. Seth Rollins [No Change]

In another mixed-tag team match, Seth Rollins got the better of Andrade to help his team with Becky Lynch get the victory. However, after being attacked post-match by Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans, will both the Universal Championship and Raw Women's Championships switch hands at Extreme Rules?


Cesaro - After a comprehensive victory over No Way Jose on Raw, Cesaro was revealed as the man who came knocking on Aleister Black's door on SmackDown Live, setting up a highly-anticipated match at Extreme Rules.

Heavy Machinery - Another strong victory for Otis Dozovic on SmackDown Live, winning a triple threat match over Daniel Bryan and Xavier Woods.

Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch - While their team was unsuccessful in their bid to become NXT Tag Team Champions on Wednesday, Oney Lorcan at least got a strong victory over Ariya Daivari in 205 Live's main event.

Bobby Lashley - Recovering from the devastating stage explosion he suffered in just one week, Bobby Lashley returned to decimate Rey Mysterio in under a minute.

Roman Reigns - Although Roman Reigns and Cedric Alexander couldn't get one over Drew McIntyre and Shane McMahon on Raw, at least The Big Dog got to look strong in SmackDown Live's main event, defeating Dolph Ziggler.
