WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #294 - The Final Stop Before Money In The Bank | 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 Viking Raiders [NR]]

The Viking Raiders made a statement on Raw this week by defeating Raw Tag Team Champions The Street Profits in a non-title match, likely indicating that the gold will be on the line in their next encounter.

9. Tamina [NR]

Only a couple of days before their SmackDown Women's Championship match at Money in the Bank, Tamina pinned Bayley in a tag team match, also involving Lacey Evans and Bayley's BFF Sasha Banks.

8. AJ Styles [NR]

Making a triumphant return after being buried by The Undertaker at WrestleMania, AJ Styles won the last-chance Gauntlet Match by pinning Humberto Carrillo, earning the final place in the Men's Money in the Bank Ladder Match.

7. Rey Mysterio [-2]

Rey Mysterio's activity on Raw was limited to a backstage interview, as he prepares for Sunday's Money in the Bank Ladder Match.

6. The Undisputed Era [NR]

After several months of disappointing outcomes, The Undisputed Era finally find a spot on the Power Rankings as Adam Cole successfully defended the NXT Championship against The Velveteen Dream in this week's main event.

5. Keith Lee [-1]

After last week's title victory, Keith Lee missed a week of action on NXT, allowing other names to fill its TakeOver-style card.

4. The Forgotten Sons [+4]

The Forgotten Sons' unbeaten run on the main roster continued on SmackDown this week, as they teamed with Miz & Morrison to defeat The New Day and The Lucha House Party in an Eight-Man Tag.

3. Braun Strowman [No Change]

In most circumstances, Braun Strowman's continued inactivity would see him plummet down the Power Rankings. However, thanks to a good build to his upcoming match with Bray Wyatt and the lack of consistency of those behind him, the Universal Champion remains close to the top.

2. Charlotte Flair [-1]

A mixed week for Charlotte Flair, who at least can still call herself NXT Women's Champion. On Raw The Queen made Liv Morgan bow down, but on NXT she only maintained her grasp on her title by getting intentionally disqualified against Io Shirai.

1. Drew McIntyre [+1]

Drew McIntyre returns to the top of the Power Rankings after a straightforward victory over Murphy on Raw, helping the WWE Champion build momentum for his title defense against Seth Rollins at Money in the Bank.


Sonya Deville - After weeks of build, Sonya Deville clashed with Mandy Rose on SmackDown, rolling up her former tag team partner to earn a cheap win.

Johnny Gargano - In the opener of this week's NXT, Johnny Gargano overcame the significantly larger Dominik Dijakovic.

Bobby Lashley - Despite not winning Raw's Gauntlet Match, Bobby Lashley had one of the more impressive showings, defeating Titus O'Neil, Akira Tozawa and Shelton Benjamin in quick succession.

King Corbin - King Corbin teamed with Shinsuke Nakamura and Cesaro to defeat Daniel Bryan, Drew Gulak and Otis in SmackDown's main event.

Karrion Kross - Following plenty of hype packages, Karrion Kross made his anticipated debut on this week's NXT, dispatching of Leon Ruff with consummate ease.
