WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #281 - Starting The Journey To Super ShowDown | 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. The AOP [NR]

In a hectic Six-Man Elimination Tag Team Match on Raw, The AOP & Buddy Murphy took down the combined forces of Kevin Owens & The Viking Raiders, with Rezar scoring the decisive pinfall over Owens.

9. Angel Garza [NR]

A significant week for Angel Garza as he made his Raw debut, beating up his cousin Humberto Carrillo and then dropping Rey Mysterio on the concrete. Garza then returned to his NXT stomping grounds to defeat Isaiah Scott.

8. The Undisputed Era [-2]

The difficult weeks continue to pile up for The Undisputed Era. They lost NXT's main event Six-Man Tag to Tommaso Ciampa & The Broserweights by DQ, and then were taken out post-match by a returning Velveteen Dream.

7. Carmella [NR]

A fabulous win for Carmella in a Fatal Four-Way against Alexa Bliss, Dana Brooke and Naomi means she is now next in line to challenge Bayley for the SmackDown Women's Championship.

6. Becky Lynch [-1]

No in-ring action for Becky Lynch this week, but that won't be the case next Monday, when she once again puts her Raw Women's Championship on the line against Asuka.

5. Ricochet [NR]

In Raw's main event, Ricochet overcame the odds to beat Bobby Lashley and Seth Rollins in a Triple Threat Match to earn a WWE Championship shot against Brock Lesnar at Super ShowDown.

4. Seth Rollins & Buddy Murphy [+3]

While Seth Rollins was unable to win the match against Brock Lesnar at Super ShowDown, his collective continues to hold the upper-hand over Kevin Owens' crew, as Buddy Murphy & AOP defeated Owens & The Viking Raiders.

3. Rhea Ripley [+1]

While Rhea Ripley didn't have a match this week, she did step up to Royal Rumble winner Charlotte Flair on Raw and, with the help of her TakeOver Portland opponent Bianca Belair, took down the Queen on this week's NXT.

2. Charlotte Flair [No Change]

Still yet to make her decision on who she will challenge at WrestleMania, Charlotte Flair received a challenge of her own from NXT Women's Champion Rhea Ripley. Flair showed up at NXT to make a response, but was laid out by both Ripley and Bianca Belair.

1. Drew McIntyre [No Change]

Drew McIntyre made easy work of Mojo Rawley on Raw, kicking his head off in a matter of seconds as he continues his march towards the WWE Championship at WrestleMania.


The Kabuki Warriors - Asuka got the better of Natalya in a physical match on Raw, and then issued her challenge to Becky Lynch for a Raw Women's Championship rematch.

Mercedes Martinez - Making her singles debut since signing for NXT, Mercedes Martinez's veteran wiles proved too much to handle for Kacy Catanzaro.

Jordan Devlin - The recently-crowned NXT Cruiserweight Champion Jordan Devlin made his Full Sail debut, defeating Tyler Breeze in a competitive clash.

Elias - Elias continued to be a thorn in the side of Sami Zayn and his group, as he defeated Cesaro on SmackDown.

Liv Morgan - A second straight win for Liv Morgan over Lana on Raw this week, followed by an attack by her former teammate Ruby Riott to set her onto a new feud.
