WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #268 - Raw, SmackDown & NXT Go To War | 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. King Corbin [NR]

Despite killing the SmackDown crowd in Manchester from the get-go with an utterly hideous promo, King Corbin was victorious in the main event, scoring a rare victory over Roman Reigns with the help of Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode.

9. The Viking Raiders [+1]

Another week, another meaningless squash match for The Viking Raiders over 'The Polo Boys'. At least they addressed the loss to The O.C. at Crown Jewel, so you can only imagine that a title match is on the cards in the near future.

8. Bray Wyatt [-2]

The Universal Champion has been seldom seen since capturing the title at Crown Jewel, but on SmackDown he unleashed a backstage attack on Daniel Bryan, seemingly launching his next feud with the Yes Man.

7. Seth Rollins [No Change]

While Seth Rollins technically scored a win over NXT Champion Adam Cole on Raw, he could only do so via disqualification when The Undisputed Era interfered, so he didn't take the title for himself.

6. The New Day [NR]

After falling off the Power Rankings for the first time this year last week, The New Day came back with a vengeance on SmackDown by capturing the SmackDown Tag Team Championships from The Revival.

5. The Kabuki Warriors [-2]

Just when the Women's Tag Team Champions were developing into a dominant force, they lose the opener on Raw to a thrown-together team of Charlotte Flair & Natalya, with Asuka forced to tap out to the Sharpshooter.

4. The Undisputed Era [-3]

After dominating NXT and SmackDown last week, The Undisputed Era were less successful this week. Adam Cole lost by DQ to Seth Rollins on Raw and then they were assaulted by The O.C. on NXT, but at least Cole was the one standing tool after the main event.

3. The O.C. [+2]

The O.C. are gaining momentum in this battle between Raw, SmackDown and NXT. On Raw they led the charge against The Undisputed Era, and then defeated Humberto Carrillo and The Street Profits. They then arrived on NXT to beat on The UE some more, with the main event match against Tommaso Ciampa, Keith Lee & Matt Riddle ending in a DQ.

2. The Boss & Hug Connection [+2]

Sasha Banks carried the load for The Boss & Hug Connection this week, as accompanied by a new entrance theme she defeated Nikki Cross one-on-one. However, Bayley did suffer another sneak attack at the hands of NXT Women's Champion Shayna Baszler.

1. Becky Lynch [+1]

While she didn't feature in the ring this week, it's arguable Becky Lynch had the best segment on Raw with her staredown with Shayna Baszler. They have immediately added a great deal of intensity to their Champion vs Champion vs Champion match at Survivor Series.


Natalya - Fresh off of making history in Saudi Arabia, Natalya teamed with Charlotte Flair to defeat Women's Tag Team Champions The Kabuki Warriors.

Andrade & Zelina Vega - The wins keep wracking up for Andrade & Zelina Vega, with the latter earning the pin in their Mixed Tag Team Match with Sin Cara & Carolina.

Angel Garza - In a great match with Tony Nese on NXT, Angel Garza became the number one contender to Lio Rush's Cruiserweight Championship.

Dana Brooke - Not often given a chance in the spotlight, Dana Brooke partnered Carmella to earn an upset win over Fire & Desire on SmackDown to book a spot at Survivor Series.

Rey Mysterio - With the help of a handy pipe, Rey Mysterio assaulted the legs of Brock Lesnar on Raw, before challenging him to WWE Championship match at Survivor Series.
