WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #257 - Title Changes & Television Deals | 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. Humberto Carrillo [NR]

In a 10-man tag team match that took up the entirety of 205 Live, Humberto Carrillo continued his rise to prominence by scoring the decisive pinfall for his team, defeating Angel Garza with a corkscrew splash.
9. Killian Dain [NR]

Now firmly back in the NXT fold just in time for their upcoming debut on the USA Network, Killian Dain cemented himself in the main event scene by defeating Matt Riddle in the final match of this week's edition.

8. Buddy Murphy [NR]

Following his buzzworthy performance against Roman Reigns on last week's SmackDown, Buddy Murphy was on top form again opposite Daniel Bryan this week. Only this time, his efforts were rewarded with a notable victory over the former WWE Champion.

7. The O.C. [-3]

It was a miserable Monday night for The O.C. this week. On Raw, AJ Styles was defeated by Braun Strowman by DQ, holding onto his United States Championship on a technicality. This led to a crushing main event where Gallows & Anderson dropped the Raw Tag Team Championships to the makeshift pairing of Strowman and Seth Rollins.

6. Braun Strowman [NR]

As mentioned above, Braun Strowman is back holding tag team gold in WWE, only this time his partner doesn't have to worry about classwork. After being screwed out of the United States title earlier in the night, Strowman teamed with Universal Champion Seth Rollins to defeat Gallows & Anderson for the Raw Tag Team Championships.

5. Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross [+1]

With their straightforward victory over Fire & Desire on this week's Raw, Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross have virtually vanquished all of their opposition in the women's tag team division. Have to wonder what comes next for the odd couple champions.

4. The New Day [-1]

While The New Day technically defeated The Revival by DQ on Raw, they didn't have a chance to celebrate. The Revival and Randy Orton decimated the trio after the bell, culminating in a vicious chair attack on Xavier Woods' leg. Kofi Kingston got a measure of revenge on SmackDown, but for the time being The New Day are a man down.

3. Bayley [-1]

No in-ring action this week for Bayley, but her next challenger has been determined and, surprise, surprise, it's Charlotte Flair. They had a war of words on a Moment of Bliss, with Bayley pushing Flair over to end the segment.

2. Seth Rollins [+3]

For the third time in his WWE career Seth Rollins is a double champion. The Universal Champion teamed up with Braun Strowman to topple Gallows & Anderson in the main event of Raw, capturing the Raw Tag Team Championships in the process.

1. Becky Lynch [No Change]

A quiet week for The Man following her beating at the hands of Sasha Banks last week, but for now Becky Lynch's great promo this week is enough to keep her on top of the Power Rankings. Plus, she just got engaged so I wouldn't want to kill her mood!


Roman Reigns - While the mystery over his assailant seems far from over, Roman Reigns at least picked up a victory on Raw over Dolph Ziggler.

Samoa Joe - The King of the Ring is underway, and Samoa Joe became the first to progress to the quarter-finals with a win over Cesaro.

Cedric Alexander - Another King of the Ring win was secured by Cedric Alexander, overcoming Sami Zayn to make it to the next round.

Andrade - On the SmackDown bracket of the King of the Ring, Andrade defeated Apollo Crews to continue his quest for the crown.

The Revival - Mere weeks after dropping the Raw Tag Team Championships, The Revival are after SmackDown gold, assaulting Xavier Woods on Monday and beating Heavy Machinery on Tuesday.
