WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #308 - Retribution Continues to Run Wild | 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 [-3]

Despite Montez Ford being out of commission following last week's 'poisoning', Andrade was unable to overcome an embittered Angelo Dawkins on Raw to build momentum for their upcoming Raw Tag Team Championship match.
9. Cameron Grimes [NR]

Cameron Grimes sealed his place in the NXT North American Championship Ladder Match by winning the final Triple Threat qualifier, outlasting both Kushida and The Velveteen Dream.
8. Cesaro & Shinsuke Nakamura [-2]

The SmackDown Tag Team Champions take a tumble after the return of Kalisto helped cost Shinsuke Nakamura in his match with Gran Metalik on SmackDown this week.
7. Randy Orton [NR]

Randy Orton continued to look dominant on his path to SummerSlam, defeating Kevin Owens in Raw's main event and then painfully severing ties with Ric Flair, which caught the ire of WWE Champion Drew McIntyre.
6. The Greater Good [+4]

A standout week for The Greater Good, as Seth Rollins handily defeated Humberto Carrillo, and then both he and Murphy took turns to assault a helpless Dominik Mysterio with a kendo stick.
5. Keith Lee [-2]

Keith Lee confronted Karrion Kross after his victory over Danny Burch to hand over the contract for the NXT Championship Match at TakeOver 30. But, when he got the contract back, he was blinded by a fireball to the face, sending him on a trip to the hospital.
4. The Golden Role Models [-2]

An unsuccessful week for The Golden Role Models, as Bayley's loss at the hands of Asuka on Raw meant that Sasha Banks will have to defend her Raw Women's Championship against Empress of Tomorrow at SummerSlam.
3. The Hurt Business [+2]

Following their seizing of Raw Underground last week, The Hurt Business followed up on Monday with Shelton Benjamin scoring a victory over United States Champion Apollo Crews.
2. Drew McIntyre [-1]

No in-ring action for Drew McIntyre this week, only an interview and then chasing Randy Orton away from a broken down Ric Flair to close Raw and build the animosity for their WWE Championship clash at SummerSlam.
1. Asuka [+3]

A huge week for Asuka, as she became the number one contender for BOTH the Raw and SmackDown Women's Championships. Her victory over Bayley on Raw earned her a title shot against Sasha Banks at SummerSlam, and then she won SmackDown's multi-brand Battle Royal to secure another match with Bayley for the SmackDown Women's Championship.


Bianca Belair - Fuelled by the injustice she believe was done to her husband Montez Ford, Bianca Belair defeated Zelina Vega on Monday night.

Karrion Kross - A one-sided victory for Karrion Kross over Danny Burch continued his undefeated start on NXT, and helped send a message to Keith Lee.

Bronson Reed - Bronson Reed got the better of Damian Priest this week, giving him bragging rights before they clash in the North American Championship Ladder Match.

Lucha House Party - The Lucha House Party is back at full strength following Kalisto's return from injury, and after Gran Metalik's win over Shinsuke Nakamura they may be in line for a SmackDown Tag Team Championship opportunity.

The New Day - It took two attempts thanks to the interruptions of Retribution, but Big E earned another singles victory on SmackDown this week, this time over John Morrison.
