WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #253 - The Legends Run Wild on Raw Reunion | 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. Roman Reigns [NR]

Still in-and-around the Shane McMahon storyline, but with no clear direction heading into SummerSlam, Roman Reigns at least earned a victory on Raw over Samoa Joe, before him and Kevin Owens took down McMahon's posse on SmackDown.
9. AJ Styles [-2]

What could have been a standout match on Raw fell victim to the WWE legend take over this week, as AJ Styles was defeated by Seth Rollins by DQ, and then intimidated out of the ring by a combination of DX and The Outsiders. In 2019.

8. Ember Moon [NR]

Building towards her SmackDown Women's Championship opportunity at SummerSlam, Ember Moon defeated Charlotte Flair in quick fashion, before taking out both her and Bayley with Eclipses to send a message to the champion.

7. Brock Lesnar [-2]

The Brock Lesnar Universal Championship reign is back to the status quo, as he wasn't on TV at all this week. Instead, Lesnar was represented by Paul Heyman in a promo segment with Seth Rollins, as they continue to slow march to SummerSlam.

6. Bray Wyatt [NR]

I recognize that Bray Wyatt is yet to have a match under his new persona, but it can no longer be ignored how captivating he has become since this change of gimmick. On Raw, The Fiend took out Mick Foley with his own Mandible Claw, before using his happy-go-lucky persona to accept Finn Balor's challenge to a match at SummerSlam.

5. Shinsuke Nakamura [+1]

The Intercontinental Champion continued his resurgence on TV with a strong, well-worked victory over Apollo Crews on SmackDown Live. While Shinsuke Nakamura's SummerSlam direction is far from clear, at least he is being kept strong in his title reign.

4. Becky Lynch [-1]

Like all of the women on Monday night, Becky Lynch was kept clear of in-ring action, instead appearing on a Moment of Bliss to exchange physical and verbal blows with Natalya. The Man and this feud is trying to ramp up the intensity, so hopefully that pays off at the PPV.

3. Seth Rollins [+1]

While it was only by disqualification, Seth Rollins did secure a victory over the United States Champion AJ Styles on Raw this week, as well as received the highly sought-after seal of approval of legends like Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Kevin Nash and Road Dogg.

2. Bayley [-1]

Although she was not defeated in a match on SmackDown, Bayley did come across as a bit of a geek. After coming out to distract Charlotte Flair and help her SummerSlam opponent Ember Moon beat her, Moon then fed Bayley to get beaten on by Flair, before both were laid out by Eclipses.

1. The New Day [+1]

With Big E and Xavier Woods restricted to commentary duties on SmackDown, Kofi Kingston carried the load this week with a great promo segment with Randy Orton, setting up a SummerSlam feud steeped in history. The subsequent match with Samoa Joe ended in a no contest, with Kingston laying out Orton with Trouble in Paradise.

HONORABLE MENTIONS


Drew Gulak - Another week, another victory for the Cruiserweight Champion, as Drew Gulak defeated Isaiah Scott in the main event of 205 Live.

Damian Priest - Meanwhile in the main event of NXT, Damian Priest's undefeated run continued with a strong victory over Keith Lee.

Kevin Owens - Even though we're all sick-to-death of Shane McMahon being shoved down our throats, at least he's proving the perfect foil for Kevin Owens' resurgence as a babyface.

Jordan Myles - The former ACH Jordan Myles booked his spot at Takeover by winning the semi-final of the Breakout Tournament over Angel Garza.

The 24/7 Championship - It was one of the most entertaining aspects of the whole Raw Reunion show, so shout out to R-Truth, Drake Maverick, Pat Patterson, Gerald Brisco, Kelly Kelly, Candice Michelle, Alundra Blayze and Ted Dibiase for their roles in that.
