WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #307 - Raw Goes Underground | Smark Out Moment

WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #307 - Raw Goes Underground

Posted by Callum Wiggins Saturday, August 8, 2020
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 Greater Good [-4]

Following another long-winded promo segment by Seth Rollins, Dominick Mysterio got the upper-hand over The Greater Good with the help of a trusty kendo stick. The Monday Night Messiah will now be battling the younger Mysterio at SummerSlam.
 
9. Imperium [NR]

After last week's attack by The Undisputed Era, Imperium bounced back to successfully defend their NXT Tag Team Championships against Kyle O'Reilly & Bobby Fish on Wednesday.
 
8. Apollo Crews [NR]

In his first match back following an extended absence, Apollo Crews took on MVP to determine who the true United States Champion was. Crews scored the victory over the veteran, and then took MVP's fancier belt for his own.
 
7. Andrade & Angel Garza [+3]

Building towards the Raw Tag Team Championship match at SummerSlam, Angel Garza defeated Angelo Dawkins in singles competition on Monday. This was followed by a match between Andrade and Montez Ford, which was cut short after Ford collapsed due to being "poisoned".
 
6. Cesaro & Shinsuke Nakamura [+2]

The SmackDown Tag Team Champions remain on a roll, with Cesaro victorious in a fun, fast-paced match on SmackDown against The Lucha House Party's Lince Dorado.
 
5. The Hurt Business [-1]

Although Raw ended with The Hurt Business in control of the new Underground arena, the rest of the show wasn't as successful for the crew. MVP failed to capture the United States Championship against Apollo Crews in Monday's opener, and then Shelton Benjamin lost his 24/7 Championship to Akira Tozawa.
 
4. Asuka [-1]

With Kairi Sane now no longer with WWE, Asuka went on a tear on Monday to avenge her fallen tag team partner. The Empress of Tomorrow assaulted Bayley at ringside during Sasha Banks' match with Shayna Baszler, and will get her hands on The Role Model on next week's Raw.
 
3. Keith Lee [+2]

NXT Champion Keith Lee warmed up for his future title defense against Karrion Kross by comfortably defeating Cameron Grimes on Wednesday night.
 
2. The Golden Role Models [-1]

A less active week for The Golden Role Models sees them drop from the top of The Power Rankings. Their duo's only in-ring action this week was Sasha Banks battling Shayna Baszler for the first time ever, which was thrown out after Asuka attacked Bayley at ringside.
 
1. Drew McIntyre [+1]

While Drew McIntyre wasn't in action this week, the strength of his promo segment with Randy Orton to build their WWE Championship match at SummerSlam was enough to push him back to the summit of the Power Rankings.

HONORABLE MENTIONS


Akira Tozawa
- While the belt continues to be worth less than the leather it's built on, Akira Tozawa reclaimed the 24/7 Championship on Raw by winning a Triple Threat against Shelton Benjamin and R-Truth. 

Dakota Kai - In a Number One Contender's match for Io Shirai's NXT Women's Championship, Dakota Kai overcame Rhea Ripley thanks to an assist by Mercedes Martinez.

Damian Priest - Damian Priest secured his spot in the upcoming North American Championship Ladder Match by winning a Triple Threat over Oney Lorcan and Ridge Holland.

Sheamus - In an ongoing story from SmackDown, Sheamus defeated Baron Corbin following a distraction by Matt Riddle.

DABBA-KATO - The former Babatunde made his debut as a standout part of the new Raw Underground concept.
