WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #276 - New Year, New Faces | Smark Out Moment

WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #276 - New Year, New Faces

Posted by Callum Wiggins Saturday, January 4, 2020
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. Roman Reigns [NR]

Roman Reigns received the distinct honor of the final WWE victory of 2019 by defeating Dolph Ziggler on a special new year's show on Fox, and followed this up by teaming with Daniel Bryan to defeat Ziggler and King Corbin by DQ on SmackDown.

9. Becky Lynch [-2]

Why her promos continue to catch the eye, the longer Raw Women's Champion Becky Lynch continues to miss out on in-ring action, the further she sinks toward the bottom of the Power Rankings standings.

8. Daniel Bryan [+1]

Fresh off becoming the number one contender for the Universal Championship, Daniel Bryan teamed with Roman Reigns for a victory over King Corbin and Dolph Ziggler on SmackDown, albeit one tainted by a DQ due to interference from The Fiend.

7. Bobby Lashley [-1]

Bobby Lashley's involvement in that baffling wedding segment with Lana, Liv Morgan, Rusev and a cast of other oddballs may have been great for WWE's YouTube figures, but not so good for his position on the Power Rankings (which I think we can all agree is far more valuable).

6. The Viking Raidersy [-1]

The Viking Raiders sat out this week's episode of Raw, but they will be back next Monday to defend their Raw Tag Team Championships against The O.C. and The Street Profits.

5. Andrade [+3]

The new United States Champion Andrade was in fine form on Raw, decimating a jobber for kicks before defeating Ricochet in a competitive contest, thanks to an assist by Zelina Vega.

4. The Kabuki Warriors [-1]

As Kairi Sane recovers from her injuries and Asuka prepares for her Raw Women's Championship match with The Man, The Kabuki Warriors slip down the rankings this week.

3. Rhea Ripley [-1]

NXT spent the week looking back on 2019 and handing out their End of Year Awards, and this meant that Rhea Ripley was absent from the show.

2. The New Day [+2]

After enjoying the greatest year of his career in 2019, Kofi Kingston started 2020 on the right foot with a victory over The Miz, although he suffered a post-match attack for his troubles.

1. The Undisputed Era [No Change]

The Undisputed Era swept up at the NXT End of Year Awards, as they undoubtedly deserved to do so. Adam Cole won Overall Competitor of the Year as well as Match and Rivalry of the Year, while the whole faction won the Tag Team of the Year.

HONORABLE MENTIONS


Charlotte Flair - On Raw, Charlotte Flair became the first person to enter this year's Royal Rumble match, and followed this up with a hard-fought win over Natalya.

Braun Strowman - Braun Strowman followed up last week's pin over Shinsuke Nakamura by defeating the Intercontinental Champion's tag partner Cesaro on SmackDown.

The Street Profits - A victory for The Street Profits over 'The Best Tag Team in the World' Gallows & Anderson earned them a shot next week at the Raw Tag Team Championships.

Dana Brooke - After being mostly ignored throughout 2019, Dana Brooke made a positive start to 2020 by pinning Sasha Banks in a tag team match.

Aleister Black - Another win for Aleister Black over Buddy Murphy on Raw in another high-quality showing for both.
