WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #304 - The Final Flurry Before Extreme Rules | 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. Andrade & Angel Garza [NR]

Seemingly now finally on the same page, Andrade & Angel Garza cemented their position as the next challengers for the Raw Tag Team Championships by defeating The Viking Raiders in an Elimination Tag.

9. Kevin Owens [NR]

Kevin Owens waded into the Seth Rollins and Rey Mysterio feud this week, defeating the Monday Night Messiah in a rematch from WrestleMania 36.

8. Drew McIntyre [-4]

Due to inactivity this week and great results for those around him, WWE Champion Drew McIntyre tumbles down the Power Rankings. He'll likely be shooting up next week after he dispatches of Dolph Ziggler at Extreme Rules.

7. Io Shirai [+3]

Io Shirai maintained her status on top of the NXT women's division by successfully defending her championship against Tegan Nox on Wednesday. However, a post-match attack by Dakota Kai means her next challenge is on the horizon.

6. AJ Styles [+2]

Another title reign that lives to see another day is AJ Styles' Intercontinental Championship run. The Phenomenal One withstood the challenge posed by Matt Riddle on Friday's SmackDown.

5. Braun Strowman [+1]

With his Swamp Fight with Bray Wyatt firmly in his thoughts, Universal Champion Braun Strowman decimated John Morrison on SmackDown with total ease.

4. Hurt Business [+1]

In preparation for MVP's United States Championship opportunity against Apollo Crews at Extreme Rules, he watched from ringside as his partner Bobby Lashley defeated Ricochet on Raw.

3. The Kabuki Warriors [-2]

A tough week for The Kabuki Warriors in the build-up to Asuka's title defense at Extreme Rules. They failed to dethrone the WWE Women's Tag Team Champions The Golden Role Models on Raw, and then Asuka lost another tag match to them on SmackDown, this time teaming with Nikki Cross.

2. Keith Lee [+1]

Keith Lee wasted no time in proving himself to be a fighting champion, as he successfully defended both his NXT Championship and North American Championship against his 'frienemy' Dominik Dijakovic on Wednesday.

1. The Golden Role Models [+1]

Back on top of the Power Rankings, Bayley & Sasha Banks remain the WWE Women's Tag Team Champions after beating The Kabuki Warriors on Raw. Then they continued to build momentum heading into Extreme Rules by scoring the win over Asuka and Nikki Cross on SmackDown.


Bianca Belair - The Raw creative team finally remembered this week they have Bianca Belair on their books, and she teamed with Ruby Riott to defeat The IIconics on Monday.

Damian Priest - Damian Priest secured some revenge over Cameron Grimes on NXT this week, pinning The Technical Savage in the night's opener.

Indi Hartwell - In a shock result supported by the interference of Robert Stone & Aaliyah, Indi Hartwell won her first match in NXT over Shotzi Blackheart.

Lacey Evans - Building on the fallout from last week's hideous karaoke contest, Lacey Evans scored a controversial win over Naomi on SmackDown.

Cesaro & Shinsuke Nakamura - Prior to their SmackDown Tag Team Championship opportunity at Extreme Rules, Cesaro defeated Big E on Friday night.
