WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #321 - How Can These Teams Possibly Get Along? | 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. Riddle [NR]

After missing out on joining Team Raw at the first time of asking, Riddle secured his spot at Survivor Series by beating Jeff Hardy & Elias in a Triple Threat on Monday. That wasn't all though, as Riddle would later team with Keith Lee to defeat Sheamus & Brawn Strowman.

9. Leon Ruff [NR]

Not a name I ever anticipated putting on this year's Power Rankings, but Leon Ruff earned his spot after capturing the North American Championship on NXT, defeating Johnny Gargano after an assist by Damian Priest.

8. Randy Orton [-2]

Randy Orton had no intention of tiring himself out before his big WWE Champions defense against Drew McIntyre next week, so he willingly stayed on the apron as his team with The Miz & John Morrison lost to Drew McIntyre & The New Day.

7. The New Day [+2]

The New Day bounced back from last week's defeat by teaming up with Drew McIntyre to overcome Randy Orton, The Miz & John Morrison in Raw's main event.

6. AJ Styles [-1]

AJ Styles' attempts to play peacemaker in Team Raw continue to come up short. Styles acted as Special Referee for the tag match between Keith Lee & Riddle against Sheamus & Braun Strowman, and this simply led to more animosity between the red team's members.

5. Drew McIntyre [+3]

Drew McIntyre remains on a roll heading into his rematch for the WWE Championship. As well as pinning John Morrison in Raw's six-man tag team match, McIntyre also popped over to SmackDown to win an Unsanctioned Match with Jey Uso.

4. Sasha Banks [-1]

As SmackDown Women's Champion, Sasha Banks is attracting a lot of unwanted attention. When Bayley came down to confront her on Friday, Banks was ambushed by Carmella for the second straight week, making her next challenger all the clearer.

3. Asuka [+1]

Asuka actually got to do something on Raw this week, even if her role was relegated to supporting the feud between all of Team Raw's members. The Raw Women's Champion defeated Nia Jax by DQ following interference by Shayna Baszler.

2. Roman Reigns [No Change]

No action for The Tribal Chief this week, as Roman Reigns confronted Drew McIntyre on the microphone instead, hyping up the potential match between the two at Survivor Series.

1. The Hurt Business [No Change]

It was an easy night for The Hurt Business, as Bobby Lashley comfortably defended his United States Championship against a feisty but outmatched Titus O'Neil.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

Retribution - Retribution finally got a clean win for their record on Raw, as Mustafa Ali got the better of Ricochet.

The Kings of NXT - Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch kept hold of the NXT Tag Team Championships in a rematch with Breezango in Wednesday's main event.

The Riott Squad - After Ruby Riott qualified for Team SmackDown last week, Liv Morgan followed her this week by winning a Fatal Four-Way over Natalya, Tamina and a debuting Chelsea Green.

The Mysterios - Rey Mysterio seemed to finally draw a line under his feud with Seth Rollins by beating him in a No DQ match on SmackDown, with a welcome assist by Buddy Murphy.

Santos Escobar - Santos Escobar remains Cruiserweight Champion following this week's NXT, as he withstood the challenge of Jake Atlas.
