WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #278 - The Rumble Field Starts To Take Shape | 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. Bianca Belair [NR]

Overpowering a stacked field of NXT's top female talent, Bianca Belair last eliminated Io Shirai in a Battle Royal to earn an opportunity at Rhea Ripley's NXT Women's Championship.

9. The Kabuki Warriors [-3]

While Asuka once again got into the head (and the eyes) of Becky Lynch with a green mist attack, another week of in-ring inactivity for the Women's Tag Team Champions sees them fall down the rankings.

8. Bobby Lashley [+2]

Thanks in part to some ringside shenanigans involving Lana and Liv Morgan, Bobby Lashley speared his way to another victory over Rusev on Raw this week.

7. Kay Lee Ray [NR]

With her NXT UK Women's Championship reign in jeopardy, Kay Lee Ray defeated both Toni Storm and Piper Niven at NXT UK Takeover Blackpool 2 to extend her reign.

6. Imperium [+3]

While Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner came up short in their attempts to win the NXT UK Tag Team Championships, Walter led by example at NXT UK Takeover Blackpool 2, defeating Joe Coffey to retain his United Kingdom Championship.

5. Andrade [-1]

The United States Champion was on the sidelines this week, as Andrade and Zelina Vega instead hyped up next week's Ladder Match with Rey Mysterio.

4. The New Day [-1]

Big E was The New Day's in-ring representative this week, but he fell short of a returning John Morrison in their singles match on SmackDown.

3. The Viking Raiders [+2]

While it was only a routine demolition of The Singh Brothers on Raw this week for The Viking Raiders, a win is a win, and when others falter on the Power Rankings, that can be enough to send you leaping forwards.

2. Rhea Ripley [No Change]

Aided by a less-than-impressive week by others on the Power Rankings table, Rhea Ripley took a week off to watch Bianca Belair earn an opportunity at her NXT Women's Championship.

1. The Undisputed Era [No Change]

Again, another example of nobody stepping up to claim top spot, so The Undisputed Era remain on top after a series of 4-man assaults on Imperium, Keith Lee and Tommaso Ciampa this week.


Aleister Black - Aleister Black maintained his clean sweep status over Buddy Murphy this week, defeating him once again to go 3-0 over his Australian rival.

Drew McIntyre - Drew McIntyre planted his marker for the upcoming Royal Rumble match, defeating AJ Styles and Randy Orton in a Triple Threat match on Raw.

Gallus - While Joe Coffey couldn't capture the United Kingdom Championship, Mark Coffey & Wolfgang held onto Gallus' NXT UK Tag Team Championships in their Ladder Match.

Lacey Evans - A huge victory for Lacey Evans on SmackDown this week, punching out SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley in a non-title match.

Tyler Bate - For a scintillating display against Jordan Devlin at NXT UK Takeover Blackpool 2, Tyler Bate earns an honorable mention this week.
