WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #272 - TLC Is Next Week, Right? | Smark Out Moment

WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #272 - TLC Is Next Week, Right?

Posted by Callum Wiggins Saturday, December 7, 2019
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. Brock Lesnar [-3]

As the WWE Champion enters his traditional December hiatus, I anticipate this will be the last time we see Brock Lesnar on the Power Rankings until 2020 when the build to Royal Rumble begins.

9. The O.C. [NR]

After a poor Survivor Series week, The O.C. bounce back onto the Power Rankings by winning Raw's main event, a Six-Man Tag versus Rey Mysterio, Ricochet and Humberto Carrillo.

8. The New Day [-2]

The SmackDown Tag Team Champions were scouting their competition on Friday night, as they watched from commentary as The Revival earned a rematch for their titles at TLC.

7. The Revival [NR]

Speaking of SmackDown's 'Top Guys', The Revival were victorious in a Fatal Four-Way Elimination Tag, outlasting The Lucha House Party, Heavy Machinery and Mustafa Ali & Shorty G. This earned them a SmackDown Tag Team Championship match opposite The New Day at TLC.

6. Keith Lee [NR]

Less than 2 weeks removed from Survivor Series, and Keith Lee is more over than ever before. Lee took the fight to The Undisputed Era on NXT, before pinning Adam Cole in the main event Six-Man Tag, earning him a spot in next week's Number One Contender Triple Threat Match.

5. Becky Lynch [-2]

The Raw Women's Champion was nowhere to be seen on Monday night, following a Starrcade where she failed to capture the Women's Tag Team Championships alongside her reluctant partner Charlotte Flair.

4. The Viking Raiders [No Change]

With no credible tag team stepping up in the short-term, The Viking Raiders dispatched of another pair of jobbers on Raw.

3. The Undisputed Era [-2]

Temporarily a man down due to Bobby Fish's injury, The Undisputed Era fell to the combined forces of Tommaso Ciampa, Keith Lee and Dominik Dijakovic on NXT, thanks in part to some outside involvement by Finn Balor.

2. The Kabuki Warriors [+3]

The Kabuki Warriors catapult up the Power Rankings thanks to a Women's Tag Team title defense at Starrcade in a Fatal Four-Way, followed by a Handicap Match victory over Charlotte Flair on Raw.

1. Rhea Ripley [+1]

The fastest rising star in NXT continued to build momentum on NXT, as Rhea Ripley helped Mia Yim get a measure of revenge on Dakota Kai before showing no fear against the combined forces of Shaya Baszler and The Horsewomen. Although Ripley was left choked out, she got her wish - a title match against Baszler on December 18.

HONORABLE MENTIONS


Andrade & Zelina Vega - The winning streak continues for Andrade, as he defeated Eric Young in an extended squash match on Raw.

Matt Riddle - In a preview for Worlds Collide, NXT's Matt Riddle earned another victory over his on-off rival, NXT UK's Kassius Ohno.

Roman Reigns - Roman Reigns got the win over Dolph Ziggler in SmackDown's main event, but was then beaten and humiliated by King Corbin and his cronies.

Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross - Back as a tandem, Alexa Bliss defeated Mandy Rose on SmackDown, with Nikki Cross running interference against Sonya Deville at ringside.

Kushida - In his return match following a wrist injury, Kushida won a fun match against Cameron Grimes on NXT.
