WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #288 - The Most Bizarre WrestleMania Build Ever | 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. Candice LeRae [NR]

While NXT TakeOver: Tampa Bay is no longer on the cards, the 6-Woman Ladder Match will take place in a couple of weeks, and Candice LeRae will be one of the participants after defeating Kayden Karter on Wednesday.

9. Io Shirai [NR]

Another person qualified for the 6-Woman Ladder Match to determine the next contender for the NXT Women's Championship is Io Shirai. Shirai returned from injury this week, taking out Xia Li backstage and then beating Aaliyah to qualify.

8. Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross [NR]

With the Women's Tag Team Championship Match locked for WrestleMania, Alexa Bliss put the champs on notice by defeating one half of The Kabuki Warriors, Asuka, on SmackDown.

7. Rey Mysterio [-3]

There was no in-ring action for Rey Mysterio this week and, if reports of him being quarantined due to COVID-19 are accurate, we would like to wish him nothing but a full recovery.

6. Jordan Devlin [NR]

Heading back in time with NXT UK, on this week's show Jordan Devlin successfully defended his NXT Cruiserweight Championship against Travis Banks.

5. Seth Rollins & Murphy [-2]

Seth Rollins & Murphy were absent from this week's Raw, as Kevin Owens carried the brunt of building his match with Rollins at WrestleMania 36.

4. Daniel Bryan & Drew Gulak [+3]

The new tandem of Daniel Bryan & Drew Gulak continues to reap rewards. Gulak earned a victory over Shinsuke Nakamura on SmackDown and, as a result, Bryan gets an opportunity at Sami Zayn's Intercontinental Championship.

3. Drew McIntyre [-1]

The build for the Universal Championship match at WrestleMania has slowed to a crawl, with Drew McIntyre not competing enroute to his clash with Brock Lesnar.

2. Miz & Morrison [-1]

The SmackDown Tag Team Champions weren't actively in a match on Friday, but did insert themselves into the main event between The Usos and The New Day to try and prevent both from becoming their next challengers.

1. The Street Profits [+4]

Meanwhile the Raw Tag Team Champions built towards their defense at WrestleMania 36 with a victory over Shane Thorne & Brendan Vink on Monday night.


Andrade & Angel Garza - Zelina Vega's charges Andrade & Angel Garza defeated Ricochet & Cedric Alexander on Raw to build momentum in the Raw tag division.

Tyler Breeze - In the age-old tale of veteran against upstart, Tyler Breeze put the younger Austin Theory in his place on NXT this week.

Cameron Grimes - Bouncing back from his recent loss to Keith Lee, Cameron Grimes defeated Tony Nese on the latest NXT.

The Broserweights - With Pete Dunne stuck in the UK for the foreseeable future, Matt Riddle reverted to singles action with a win over Roderick Strong on NXT, but this was tempered by a 2-on-1 beatdown by Rinku Singh & Saurav Gurjar.

Isaiah Scott - Another week, another win on 205 Live for Isaiah Scott, overcoming Joaquin Wilde on the latest edition.
