WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #293 - Continuing Up The Corporate Ladder | 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. Carmella [NR]

With her opponent Mandy Rose distracted by Sonya Deville, Carmella earned her spot in the match that put her on the map - the Women's Money in the Bank Ladder Match. Could we see Money Mella return for the third time?

9. Heavy Machinery [NR]

While Tucker remains on the shelf, Otis continues to shine in the solo spotlight. The behemoth once again toppled Dolph Ziggler in SmackDown's main event, earning him a shot at becoming Mr. Money in the Bank.

8. The Forgotten Sons [NR]

Not even a month into their main roster run, The Forgotten Sons have already recorded a victory over the SmackDown Tag Team Champions, after they defeated The New Day on Friday's episode.

7. Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross [-2]

The Women's Tag Team Champions weren't in action this week, with their appearances limited to a brief backstage interaction between Alexa Bliss and Braun Strowman. With no challengers on the horizon, will their titles be on the line at Money in the Bank?

6. The New Day [-2]

A tag team with no shortage of challengers is SmackDown's Tag Team Champions The New Day. Miz & Morrison and The Usos remain everpresent, while their loss on Friday to The Forgotten Sons bolsters their claims for a title shot.

5. Rey Mysterio [+4]

A week on from claiming his spot in the Men's Money in the Bank Ladder Match, Rey Mysterio teamed with his fellow Raw qualifiers Aleister Black and Apollo Crews in a win over Andrade, Angel Garza and Austin Theory.

4. Keith Lee [NR]

In the main event of this week's NXT, Keith Lee maintained his iron grip on the North American Championship in a successful defense against Damian Priest.

3. Braun Strowman [No Change]

Once again, The Universal Champion's action on SmackDown was limited this week, as Braun Strowman's in-ring promo was quickly interrupted by Bray Wyatt, who continues to play mind games with the former "black sheep" of the Wyatt Family.

2. Drew McIntyre [-1]

Similarly to his world champion counterpart, WWE Champion Drew McIntyre was limited to a microphone this week, as he took part in a contract signing with Seth Rollins. However, McIntyre did get his hands dirty, delivering a Claymore Kick to Murphy.

1. Charlotte Flair [+1]

Charlotte Flair strutted her way back to NXT this week, defeating Mia Yim one-on-one in her first match on the brand since winning the NXT Women's Championship. Next week, The Queen's reign will be put to the test against Io Shirai.


Liv Morgan - For the second time in as many weeks, Liv Morgan defeated former stablemate Ruby Riott on the latest edition of Raw.

Candice LeRae - With a new edge to her persona, Candice LeRae earned a victory over Kacy Catanzaro on NXT.

Isaiah Scott - Isaiah Scott picked up his first win of the Interim Cruiserweight Championship Tournament, beating El Hijo del Fantasmo.

Drake Maverick - Another person on the board for the Cruiserweight tournament is Drave Maverick, with the recently released superstar overcoming Tony Nese.

Jinder Mahal - Making a triumphant return in front of an empty crowd, Jinder Mahal marked his recovery from injury with a win over Akira Tozawa.
