WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #291 - A Rough Week For The Whole Roster | 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 Role Models [-5]

Despite the unbelievable effort of Sasha Banks to have a passable match with Tamina Snuka on SmackDown, The Boss ended up on the losing end of the equation, placing Bayley's title reign in jeopardy.

9. Daniel Bryan & Drew Gulak [NR]

In arguably the most impressive of the several Money in the Bank qualifying matches to take place this week, Daniel Bryan defeated Cesaro to earn his spot in the match he won all the way back in 2011.

8. Tamina Snuka [NR]

While WWE is in a state of flux right now, there's always an opportunity for the random Tamina Snuka push. The second-generation superstar overcame Sasha Banks on SmackDown, earning a one-on-one shot at Bayley's SmackDown Women's Championship.

7. AAA [NR]

The newly-formed trio of Andrade, Angel Garza & Austin Theory were all over this Monday's edition of Raw. It started exceptionally well, with Theory defeating Akira Tozawa and Garza getting the better of Tehuti Miles, but they came unstuck at the end when Andrade couldn't overcome WWE Champion Drew McIntyre.

6. Charlotte Flair [-2]

The new NXT Women's Champion Charlotte Flair spent this week on the microphone, challenging the NXT roster to step up to bow to the Queen. And the first to take that step will be Io Shirai.

5. The Broserweights [NR]

While Pete Dunne remains stranded in the UK for the foreseeable future, the NXT Tag Team Championships will remain actively defended. This is because Matt Riddle has found an effective temporary substitute in the form of Timothy Thatcher, and this new tandem got off to a convincing start by defeating The Undisputed Era's Bobby Fish & Roderick Strong.

4. Becky Lynch [-1]

It was a light week for Becky Lynch, who once again finds herself with no standout challenger for her Raw Women's Championship leading up to Money in the Bank. With options limited to those not in the Women's Ladder Match, who will step up to The Man?

3. The New Day [NR]

New SmackDown Tag Team Champions were crowned this week in unconventional circumstances. In a standard Triple Threat Match, Big E defeated The Miz and Jey Uso to capture the titles for himself, Kofi Kingston and the still-injured Xavier Woods, making them 8-time champions.

2. Braun Strowman [No Change]

Braun Strowman continued to build his upcoming Universal Championship defense against Bray Wyatt on SmackDown, with The Fiend playing mind games by reminding Strowman about his past as the black sheep of the Wyatt Family.

1. Drew McIntyre [No Change]

In a Champion vs Champion contest, it was WWE Champion Drew McIntyre that came out on top of United States Champion Andrade on Raw this week. However, McIntyre was then laid out by a Stomp by Seth Rollins, indicating where his next title challenge is coming from.


The Viking Raiders - In arguably the best match on WWE TV this week, The Viking Raiders secured a victory over the high-flying tandem of Ricochet & Cedric Alexander.

Nia Jax - Nia Jax continued her dominant return to WWE with a destructive victory over Kairi Sane in a Money in the Bank qualifier.

The Kabuki Warriors - While Kairi Sane wasn't able to secure her spot at Money in the Bank, her partner Asuka did, defeating Ruby Riott on Monday night.

Aleister Black - Although not a meaningful match, Aleister Black continued his winning streak in an entertaining brawl with Oney Lorcan on Raw.

Dana Brooke - In something of an upset, Dana Brooke joined the ranks for the Women's Money in the Bank Ladder Match when she defeated Naomi on SmackDown.
