WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #255 - The Final Stops Before SummerSlam | 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. Bray Wyatt [-2]

While we will need to wait until SummerSlam to see Bray Wyatt's return to the ring against Finn Balor, The Fiend assaulted another WWE Hall of Famer on Raw - this time putting Kurt Angle down with the Mandible Claw.
9. Oney Lorcan [NR]

Currently focusing on his singles career on 205 Live, Oney Lorcan came out on top of a Six-Pack Challenge to earn the right to face Drew Gulak for the Cruiserweight Championship at SummerSlam.

8. Shinsuke Nakamura [-2]

Not in action this week, and his title defense against Ali seemingly off the SummerSlam card, Shinsuke Nakamura and his Intercontinental Championship will have to settle for watching the PPV backstage (unless plans change as they typically do).

7. Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross [NR]

Out of the blue, we have new Women's Tag Team Champions. In a Fatal Four-Way Elimination Match on Raw, Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross outlasted The IIconics, The Kabuki Warriors and Fire & Desire to claim these 'prestigious' titles.

6. Seth Rollins [-2]

Seth Rollins is going into his Universal Championship match at SummerSlam against Brock Lesnar arguably as weak as he's looked all year. After another brutal beating dished out by the Beast on Raw, Rollins' momentum has slowed to a crawl in the Summer of 2019.

5. The O.C. [+2]

Another successful week for the recently reformed trio, as The O.C. banded together to defeat the team of Ricochet, Big E and Xavier Woods on Raw, setting AJ Styles up for his title defense against The One and Only on Sunday.

4. Bayley [-1]

To Bayley's benefit, at least she's looking a lot better right now than her SummerSlam opponent Ember Moon, who'd be sitting near the top of the Reverse Power Rankings. But, as a champion is often only as good as their challenger, Bayley takes a fall down these rankings.

3. Brock Lesnar [+2]

The Universal Champion might not be around often (if at all), but he does know how to make an impact. Brock Lesnar delivered another vicious beating to Seth Rollins on Raw, potentially setting himself up for an easy night at SummerSlam.

2. Becky Lynch [No Change]

Well, Becky Lynch technically got a win on Raw so that's something. However, that happened only after her partner abandoned her mid-match and her championship challenger refused to release her from a submission hold.

1. The New Day [No Change]

A mixed week for The New Day, but still enough to claim top spot this week. Big E & Xavier Woods fell short against The O.C. on Raw when teaming with Ricochet. But on SmackDown Live, while Kofi Kingston continues to sell his WWE Championship match with Randy Orton at SummerSlam, Big E & Woods defeated Daniel Bryan & Erick Rowan (again by DQ).


Andrade - Despite no clear direction or trajectory right now, at least Andrade got to win a great match against Rey Mysterio on Raw.

Aleister Black - In another match bumped from the SummerSlam card, Aleister Black wiped out Sami Zayn with the Black Mass on SmackDown Live.

Dolph Ziggler - Before he gets murdered by Goldberg at SummerSlam, at least Dolph Ziggler got to beat up Rey Mysterio and then pin Ali on his final SmackDown Live.

R-Truth - The 24/7 Championship is back with its most notable owner, with R-Truth pinning Mike Kanellis in a hospital waiting room.

Shane Thorne - Really scraping the bottom of the barrel here, as Shane Thorne won the only completed match on NXT this week, defeating Joaquin Wilde.
