WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #295 - The Money In The Bank Recap | 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 Undisputed Era [-4]

After last week's title defense against The Velveteen Dream, Adam Cole video-called his fellow Undisputed Era cohorts to discuss the next target in their sights - Dexter Lumis. Next week, Roderick Strong will battle this new challenger on their behalf.

9. Keith Lee [-4]

Keith Lee also continued to be absent after his most recent North American Championship defense, but it doesn't appear that will be the case for long, as Johnny Gargano has set his sights on Lee and his title belt.

8. The Role Models [NR]

In a match that thankfully appears to be a one-and-done, Bayley successfully kept hold of the SmackDown Women's Championship by defeating Tamina at Money in the Bank, thanks in part from her pal Sasha Banks.

7. Imperium [NR]

We have new NXT Tag Team Champions, as Imperium's tandem of Marcel Barthel &Fabian Aichner took advantage of the in-fighting between Matt Riddle and Timothy Thatcher to capture the titles for the first time.

6. The Forgotten Sons [-2]

The momentum The Forgotten Sons have built since joining the main roster couldn't translate to a title win at Money in the Bank, as The New Day emerged victorious in the Fatal Four-Way also involving Miz & Morrison and Lucha House Party.

5. Heavy Machinery [NR]

In a shocking conclusion to the most bizarre Money in the Bank Ladder Match of all time, it was Otis who emerged with the briefcase as it literally fell into his hands. Otis then proceeded to team with the man he may one day cash-in on, Braun Strowman, to defeat Miz & Morrison on SmackDown.

4. Charlotte Flair [-2]

Charlotte Flair continues to make her presence felt on all WWE programming. This week, The Queen stopped by on SmackDown, having a verbal exchange with Bayley and challenging Sasha Banks to step up and be her own woman.

3. The Kabuki Warriors [NR]

On Sunday night, Asuka overcame 5 other women to climb the corporate ladder and become Miss Money in the Bank. On Monday night, we discovered this win meant much more as, due to Becky Lynch's pregnancy, Asuka captured the Raw Women's Championship.

2. Braun Strowman [+1]

In the clash of former Wyatt Family members at Money in the Bank, Braun Strowman powered through the challenge posed by his former master Bray Wyatt to successfully retain his Universal Championship. On SmackDown, Strowman then teamed with Mr. Money in the Bank Otis to defeat Miz & Morrison.

1. Drew McIntyre [No Change]

Another world title reign that survived Money in the Bank was Drew McIntyre, who defeated Seth Rollins and continued his run as WWE Champion. Following this, McIntyre overcame another champion on Raw, beating United States Champion Andrade.

HONORABLE MENTIONS


The New Day - Despite the challenges presented by Miz & Morrison, The Forgotten Sons and The Lucha House Party, The New Day walked out of Money in the Bank still the SmackDown Tag Team Champions.

Bobby Lashley - It was 2 victories in 2 days for Bobby Lashley, as he squashed R-Truth at Money in the Bank, and then defeated Humberto Carrillo on Raw.

The IIconics - After a lengthy absence from WWE, The IIconics returned on Raw and immediately entered the title picture by defeated Women's Tag Team Champions Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross.

Elias - In the first round of the tournament to crown a new Intercontinental Champion, Elias got another one over King Corbin to progress to the semi-finals.

Cameron Grimes - While it came off the back of interference by Damian Priest, Cameron Grimes secured his biggest win on NXT to date by pinning Finn Balor on this week's episode.
