WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #267 - Saudi Arabia & SmackDown Shuffles The Deck | 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. The Viking Raiders [-4]

While they enjoyed a customary squash victory on Raw, The Viking Raiders fell in the final match of Crown Jewel's mammoth Tag Team Turmoil to The O.C., despite Raw's Tag Team Champions being the last team to enter the match.

9. Roman Reigns [NR]

Arguably the most over star on the entirety of Crown Jewel, Roman Reigns led Team Hogan to victory over Team Flair in Saudi Arabia, pinning his opposing team captain Randy Orton after a Spear.

8. Brock Lesnar [+1]

It was the customary short night's work with a massive payout for Brock Lesnar. The WWE Champion defended his title at Crown Jewel against Cain Velasquez, forcing him to tap out in minutes, before being chased down by Rey Mysterio with a steel chair.

7. Seth Rollins [-3]

Despite a forklift-assisted win over Erick Rowan on Raw, Seth Rollins' Crown Jewel trip ended with the loss of his Universal Championship to "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt in a lengthy Falls Count Anywhere Match.

6. Bray Wyatt [NR]

Speaking of the new Universal Champion, The Fiend finished what he wasn't able to at Hell in a Cell, defeating Seth Rollins in their Falls Count Anywhere Match to become a world champion for the second time in his career.

5. The O.C. [NR]

A strong week for the trio of AJ Styles, Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson. For Styles, two wins in three days over Humberto Carrillo, including a successful defense of his United States Championship at Crown Jewel, while on that same show, The Good Brothers won the show's gigantic Tag Team Turmoil, last pinning The Viking Warriors.

4. The Boss & Hug Connection [+1]

After not doing much last week, Bayley stepped up on SmackDown to successfully defend her SmackDown Women's Championship against Nikki Cross, before suffering an unexpected beatdown by NXT Women's Champion Shayna Baszler.

3. The Kabuki Warriors [No Change]

While Kairi Sane was unable to overcome Becky Lynch in Raw's opening contest, The Kabuki Warriors functioned as a well-oiled machine to defeat Dakota Kai & Tegan Nox on NXT to retain their Women's Tag Team Championships.

2. Becky Lynch [No Change]

The Man came around on Raw this Monday, overcoming a tough challenge from Women's Tag Team Champion Kairi Sane. Becky Lynch's search for a substantial contender for her Raw Women's Championship continues though.

1. The Undisputed Era [No Change]

As if taking over NXT wasn't enough, on Friday The Undisputed Era took over SmackDown. After Wednesday's tag team victory for Kyle O'Reilly & Bobby Fish over Matt Riddle & Keith Lee, Adam Cole defeated Daniel Bryan in Friday's main event with the NXT Championship on the line.


Mansoor - Backed by the support of his compatriots in Saudi Arabia, Mansoor won a very good match against the veteran Cesaro.

Rhea Ripley - Rhea Ripley continues to make waves in NXT in her hunt of Shayna Baszler, and was also on SmackDown to force Mandy Rose to tap out.

Io Shirai - Buoyed by a live musical performance for her entrance, Io Shirai defeated Candice LeRae on NXT.

Tommaso Ciampa - With WarGames on the horizon for Tommaso Ciampa, he arrived on SmackDown to defeat The Miz.

Natalya - In a truly historic match at Crown Jewel, Natalya defeated Lacey Evans in Saudi Arabia's first women's match.
