WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #277 - The Road To The Rumble Rolls On | 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. Bobby Lashley [-3]

Bobby Lashley confirmed his marriage to Lana this week, and made his challenge to Rusev for a match next week on Raw.

9. Imperium [NR]

As they prepare for NXT UK Takeover Blackpool 2, Imperium built momentum with a win in the first round of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic over The Forgotten Sons.

8. Braun Strowman [NR]

The Monster Among Men put himself firmly in line for an Intercontinental Championship match by defeating the champ Shinsuke Nakamura one-on-one on SmackDown.

7. Keith Lee [NR]

After a few tough losses, Keith Lee came storming back on NXT this week, winning a Fatal Four-Way over Dominik Dijakovic, Damian Priest and Cameron Grimes to earn a shot at the North American Championship.

6. The Kabuki Warriors [-2]

No in-ring action again for The Kabuki Warriors while Kairi Sane is healing. Instead, Asuka exchanged words with Becky Lynch, which ended with a cheap shot from the Raw Women's Champion.

5. The Viking Raiders [+1]

Despite the odds facing them, The Viking Raiders overcame two top challengers in The O.C. and The Street Profits on Monday to retain their Raw Tag Team Championships.

4. Andrade [+1]

A second title match on Raw saw a similar result, as Andrade successfully defended his United States Championship over Rey Mysterio.

3. The New Day [-1]

In a rematch from last week's SmackDown, Kofi Kingston this time fell to defeat against The Miz, thanks in part to a distraction by the returning John Morrison.

2. Rhea Ripley [+1]

The NXT Women's Champion returned to TV this week and was met with a crowd of challengers for her newly won belt. This led to Rhea Ripley teaming with Candice LeRae and Toni Storm to defeat Bianca Belair, Io Shirai and Kay Lee Ray in NXT's opener.

1. The Undisputed Era [No Change]

Another week on top of the Power Rankings for The Undisputed Era, as Kyle O'Reilly & Bobby Fish won the battle of the NXT Tag Team Champions over UK champs Gallus in the first round of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic.

HONORABLE MENTIONS


Big Show - A surprise return for the World's Largest Athlete on Raw, as Big Show teamed with Kevin Owens and Samoa Joe to defeat Seth Rollins and AOP by DQ.

Drew McIntyre - In what may be the start of a babyface turn for the Scottish Psychopath, Drew McIntyre defeated No Way Jose comfortably on Raw.

Fire & Desire - After a losing streak that stretched on for months, Mandy Rose defeated Alexa Bliss on SmackDown, thanks to some help from Otis.

The Miz - The Miz avenged last week's defeat to Kofi Kingston with a victory over the former WWE Champion on SmackDown, with an assist by John Morrison.

Austin Theory - While he came up short in his North American Championship opportunity, NXT newcomer Austin Theory bounced back with a win over Joaquin Wilde on Wednesday night.
