WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #301 - Heading Towards A Horror Show | 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. Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross [NR]

With Sasha Banks tied up with Asuka at Extreme Rules, Bayley needed a challenger for her SmackDown Women's Championship. That challenger will be Nikki Cross after she won a Fatal Four-Way on Friday, overcoming Lacey Evans, Dana Brooke and Cross' own tag team partner Alexa Bliss.

9. Randy Orton [-2]

No in-ring action for Randy Orton this week, just a couple of standout promo segments. At least we can now look forward to a long-anticipated feud between him and The Big Show in 2020.

8. Charlotte Flair [-3]

If reports are accurate, this will be the last time we see Charlotte Flair on the Power Rankings for some time. The Queen went out with a bang, finally succumbing to Asuka in a Raw Women's Championship match on Monday, before being assaulted by Nia Jax backstage to write her off TV while she recovers from surgery.

7. The Street Profits [NR]

After months of friendly feuding between The Street Profits and The Viking Raiders, they finally settled matters in the ring on Monday for the Raw Tag Team Championships. The Street Profits retained and earned a much-needed win over their rivals, but now have Andrade & Angel Garza in their crosshairs.

6. Keith Lee [NR]

By winning NXT's main event over Finn Balor and Johnny Gargano, Keith Lee did not just retain his North American Championship, but secured a date with Adam Cole in 2 weeks with both Lee's title and Cole's NXT Championship at stake.

5. Apollo Crews [+1]

Another week, another win for United States Champion Apollo Crews in the biggest push of his WWE career. Crews was victorious in a rematch with Shelton Benjamin on Monday, but he has now attracted the attention of a fiercer foe: Bobby Lashley.

4. Drew McIntyre [-1]

A lack of in-ring action on Monday sees Drew McIntyre slip down the rankings. But, considering the next challenger for his WWE Championship is set to be Dolph Ziggler, I imagine it won't be long until McIntyre is back to winning ways and moving up again.

3. Braun Strowman [-1]

Both world champions were contained in promo segments this week, as Braun Strowman addressed his challenger Bray Wyatt ahead of their Universal Championship clash at Extreme Rules.

2. The Kabuki Warriors [+2]

Asuka finally shook the Charlotte-shaped monkey off her back on Monday when she forced The Queen to tap out and retained her Raw Women's Championship. Next on the agenda for the Empress of Tomorrow is Sasha Banks at Extreme Rules.

1. The Golden Role Models [No Change]

The Golden Role Models continue to shine atop the Power Rankings, and are looking to add even more gold to their collection. Bayley & Sasha Banks defended their Women's Tag Team Championships against The IIconics, and then Banks officially challenged Asuka to a Raw Women's Championship match at Extreme Rules.


Akira Tozawa - Although the 24/7 Championship isn't worth the leather it's crafted on, Akira Towaza still captured it on Monday by defeating R-Truth.

Natalya - After a lengthy losing streak, Natalya finally secured a victory on Raw over Liv Morgan, thanks to a handy distraction by Lana.

Cameron Grimes - Cameron Grimes took advantage of a pre-match assault on Damian Priest to defeat him on NXT's opening match.

Karrion Kross - With his eyes still set on becoming NXT Champion, Karrion Kross made short work of Bronson Reed on Wednesday.

Jeff Hardy - Defending the honor of the supposedly retired Undertaker, Jeff Hardy defeated Baron Corbin in SmackDown's main event.
