WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #290 - The WrestleMania Reboot 2020/21 | 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

As this is the first edition of the Power Rankings for 2020/21, everyone's rankings will commence based on their results at WrestleMania and the week following this. This is the starting point for the year ahead, and in 52 weeks' time we'll find out who will be the Power Rankings Champion for this coming year!

10. Johnny Gargano [NR]

While it couldn't take place in the grandest manner possible due to COVID-19 circumstances, Johnny Gargano got the last laugh in his epic feud with Tommaso Ciampa, defeating him in a near hour-long Empty Arena Match after Candice LeRae interfered on the Rebel Heart's behalf.

9. The Street Profits [NR]

The Raw Tag Team Champions successfully defended their titles at WrestleMania against the makeshift pairing of Angel Garza & Austin Theory, before repeating the feat the following night on Raw, albeit through Bianca Belair pinning Zelina Vega in a 6-Person Tag.

8. Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross [NR]

The opening match of WrestleMania 36 crowned new Women's Tag Team Champions, as Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross ended the lengthy reign of Asuka & Kairi Sane to become the first 2-time holders of the belts. They retained them in a rematch the following SmackDown.

7. Edge [NR]

In his first one-on-one match in nearly a decade, Edge went to war with Randy Orton for over 30 minutes in their Last Man Standing Match. In the end, The Rated-R Superstar stood tall, ending The Viper with a Conchairto on top of a production truck.

6. The Undertaker [NR]

A WrestleMania main event truly befitting that stature, The Undertaker and AJ Styles ended Night 1 with the first-ever Boneyard Match. This cinematic masterpiece breathed new life into The Deadman, as he overcame The O.C.'s interference, buried The Phenomenal One,0 and rode off into the night.

5. The Role Models [NR]


With 4 other members of the blue brand roster gunning for her SmackDown Women's Championship, Bayley retained her title, thanks to a big assist from Sasha Banks following her elimination earlier in the match. Bayley last eliminated Lacey Evans to keep The Role Model on top of the division.

4. Charlotte Flair [NR]

6 years after she last held the NXT Women's Championship, Charlotte Flair returned to the summit of her old stomping grounds by defeating Rhea Ripley to kick-off Night 2 of WrestleMania 36. With Io Shirai next in her crosshairs, how long will The Queen rule over NXT?

3. Becky Lynch [NR]

Becky Lynch enters her second year as Raw Women's Champion after knocking back the challenge of Shayna Baszler at WrestleMania 36. The Man was the underdog in many's eyes, but she escaped Baszler's clutches long enough to secure a flash pin over The Queen of Spades.

2. Braun Strowman [NR]

Thrust into the Universal Championship picture by Roman Reigns' decision to pull out of WrestleMania 36, Braun Strowman took full advantage of his opportunity, dethroning Goldberg in a matter of minutes. In his first act as champion on SmackDown, Strowman then defeated Shinsuke Nakamura, and set forward on a feud with The Fiend.

1. Drew McIntyre [NR]

Drew McIntyre made good on his promise to become the first-ever British WWE Champion at WrestleMania 36 when he kicked Brock Lesnar into oblivion in the final match of the show. But, his work wasn't quite finished, as the next night on Raw, they broadcast McIntyre's first successful title defense against The Big Show.

HONORABLE MENTIONS


Kevin Owens - Not settling for a DQ win over Seth Rollins at WrestleMania, Kevin Owens forced a restart and soundly pinned The Monday Night Messiah to secure his own WrestleMania moment.

Heavy Machinery - Otis got the happy ending everybody wanted at WrestleMania, defeating Dolph Ziggler and getting a kiss from Mandy Rose. However, Tucker wasn't able to continue the positive trend for his team, losing to Ziggler on SmackDown.

Sami Zayn - Although he was beaten from pillar-to-post by Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania, timely interference and a flash kick allowed Sami Zayn to retain his Intercontinental Championship.

Miz & Morrison - In an unconventional way to defend the SmackDown Tag Team Championships, John Morrison fought for his team to retain the titles in a Triple Threat Ladder Match against Kofi Kingston and Jimmy Uso at WrestleMania.

Bray Wyatt - In arguably the most bizarre match to ever take place at WrestleMania or in WWE altogether, Bray Wyatt vanquished John Cena in the first-ever Firefly Funhouse Match, before setting his sights on Braun Strowman's Universal Championship.
