WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #286 - The Show Must Go On | Smark Out Moment

WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #286 - The Show Must Go On

Posted by Callum Wiggins Saturday, March 14, 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. Charlotte Flair [-3]

Charlotte Flair was punked out by NXT Women's Champion Rhea Ripley on Raw this week, so responded in emphatic fashion with a vicious beatdown of her rival on NXT. Still, another week with no matches sees her slide down the rankings.

9. Sami Zayn [NR]

After nearly 5 years on the main roster, Sami Zayn finally captured his first championship at Elimination Chamber, when he, Shinsuke Nakamura and Cesaro toppled Braun Strowman in their Handicap Match.

8. Miz & Morrison [NR]

Despite the odds being against them, Miz & Morrison successfully defended their SmackDown Tag Team Championships at Elimination Chamber, overcoming The Usos, The New Day, Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode, Heavy Machinery and Lucha House Party.

7. Shayna Baszler [NR]

In one of the biggest full-gone conclusions in recent memory, Shayna Baszler defeated Asuka, Liv Morgan, Natalya, Ruby Riott and Sarah Logan inside the Elimination Chamber to earn the right to challenge Becky Lynch at WrestleMania (whenever that ends up taking place).

6. Riddick Moss [+2]

Riddick Moss continues to build momentum on Raw with another successful 24/7 Championship defense, this time against Cedric Alexander.

5. The Undisputed Era [-1]

In their rematch for the NXT Tag Team Championships, Kyle O'Reilly & Bobby Fish were unable to topple The Broserweights and reclaim their belts, thanks in part to some ringside shenanigans by Grizzled Young Veterans.

4. Rhea Ripley [-1]

After getting the better of her WrestleMania challenger Charlotte Flair on Raw, Rhea Ripley suffered the backlash on Wednesday's NXT, as Flair decimated the NXT Women's Champion in front of the Performance Center crowd.

3. The Street Profits [+2]

After capturing the Raw Tag Team Championships last week, The Street Profits kept held of their belts at Elimination Chamber by defeating Seth Rollins & Murphy, with a helping hand from Kevin Owens and his popcorn.

2. Seth Rollins & Murphy [No Change]

While Seth Rollins & Murphy were unable to reclaim the Raw Tag Team Championships at Elimination Chamber, they could take some comfort that the next night on Raw they and AOP won the night's main event over The Street Profits and The Viking Raiders.

1. Drew McIntyre [No Change]

The number one contender for the WWE Championship stays atop the Power Rankings for the time being, after Drew McIntyre defeated Erick Rowan on Raw and obliterated the giant's cage afterwards.


Andrade - In their millionth match together in the last 2 months, Andrade once again defended his United States Championship against Humberto Carrillo at Elimination Chamber.

Keith Lee - In the opener of this week's NXT, Keith Lee retained his North American Championship in a fun match with Cameron Grimes.

The Broserweights - On the same NXT, The Broserweights also maintained their hold on the NXT Tag Team Championships, defeating Undisputed Era.

Daniel Bryan - In what was for many people the best match at Elimination Chamber, Daniel Bryan defeated Drew Gulak in a very competitive opener to the show. Bryan followed this up with a win over Cesaro in front of no crowd at SmackDown.

Aleister Black - Two wins in a week for Aleister Black, as he defeated AJ Styles at Elimination Chamber, before picking up a victory over Seth Rollins by DQ on Raw.
