WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #270 - Everyone Is Fighting Everyone Else | 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]

Building up to his United States Championship match with AJ Styles, Humberto Carrillo defeated Styles' O.C. teammate Karl Anderson on Raw.

9. Rhea Ripley [NR]

A strong week for one of the WarGames captains Rhea Ripley. Ripley shared the ring with Raw Women's Champion Becky Lynch on NXT, before winning a Triple Threat on SmackDown over Charlotte Flair and Sasha Banks.

8. The New Day [-1]

The SmackDown Tag Team Champions weren't on top form this week. The New Day teamed with Heavy Machinery on SmackDown and fell to defeat against The Undisputed Era.

7. The Viking Raiders [+1]

The Raw Tag Team Champions had a significantly better week. Although The Viking Raiders' Raw match against Randy Orton and Ricochet was cut short by an interbrand brawl, they scored a decisive win over The Forgotten Sons on NXT.

6. The O.C. [-2]

Not a great week for Raw's top trio. The O.C.'s Karl Anderson was unable to put a dent in Humberto Carrillo before he faces AJ Styles next week, and Styles himself was left laying in another interbrand brawl on SmackDown.

5. Seth Rollins [+1]

Technically, Seth Rollins was victorious on Raw in his match against Andrade, but that was only achieved thanks to interference by, of all people, The Lucha House Party. Rollins was then one of the last men standing in NXT's show-closing brawl, battling it out with Tommaso Ciampa.

4. The Boss & Hug Connection [-3]

It was a humbling SmackDown for the blue brand's best duo. Bayley barely escaped an assault by Shayna Baszler before their match at Survivor Series, while Sasha Banks was unable to win the opener against Rhea Ripley and Charlotte Flair.

3. The Kabuki Warriors [No Change]

Making up for a couple of weeks ago where Asuka tapped out to Natalya, the Empress of Tomorrow got her win back over The Queen of Harts on Raw this week.

2. Becky Lynch [No Change]

The Raw Women's Champion had a mostly successful if unspectacular week. Becky Lynch once again teamed with Charlotte Flair on Raw, with their contentious pairing earning a win over The IIconics. Lynch then returned to her old stomping ground of NXT, facing Rhea Ripley before their match was interrupted by the Horsewomen.

1. The Undisputed Era [+4]

By some distance, no individual or faction had a stronger week than The Undisputed Era. There were involved in the brawling on Raw. On NXT, Kyle O'Reilly and Bobby Fish defeated The Revival in an epic match, while Adam Cole won a Ladder Match against Dominik Dijakovic. And on SmackDown, all four UE members defeated The New Day and Heavy Machinery.


Buddy Murphy - While it was a throwaway match on Raw, Buddy Murphy continues to rack up wins, this time over Akira Tozawa.

Matt Riddle - In a fun sprint, Matt Riddle was able to defeat Ricochet on NXT with a cradle.

Kay Lee Ray - Asserting her dominance heading into WarGames, NXT UK Women's Champion Kay Lee Ray defeated Dakota Kai.

King Corbin - King Corbin led his team to victory on SmackDown this week, teaming with Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode to defeat Roman Reigns, Mustafa Ali and Shorty G.

Kevin Owens - Although his great match with Drew McIntyre on Raw was cut short by Triple H's interruption, Kevin Owens has become one of the most intriguing factors heading into Survivor Series.
