WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #322 - And New WWE Champion… | Smark Out Moment

WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #322 - And New WWE Champion…

Posted by Callum Wiggins Saturday, November 21, 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. Retribution [NR]

It's taken longer than it probably should have done, but Retribution finally take a slot on the Power Rankings. They did so this week by defeating 4 members of Team Raw in an 8-Man Tag on Monday night.

9. AJ Styles [-3]

Speaking of Team Raw vs Retribution, AJ Styles was the one who set this match up for his teammates, and watched from commentary with disdain as his Survivor Series team fell short in their battle with Retribution.

8. Leon Ruff [+1]

Thanks to a strategic punch by Damian Priest, Leon Ruff retained his North American Championship against Johnny Gargano by DQ. But Priest's actions angered Ruff, and after fighting back against both Gargano and Priest later in the night, he'll soon face both with the title on the line.

7. Io Shirai [NR]

In a battle between NXT's biggest female superstars over the NXT Women's Championship, Io Shirai got the one-on-one victory she was looking for over Rhea Ripley, cementing her spot at the summit of their impressive women's division.

6. Sasha Banks [-2]

Attack me from behind once, shame on you. Attack me from behind twice, shame on me. Attack me from behind three times and you start to look a little stupid. That was the case for Sasha Banks on SmackDown, as during a verbal confrontation with Asuka, she was ambushed and beaten down once again by Carmella.

5. The New Day [+2]

Making up for their loss from two weeks earlier, The New Day defended their Raw Tag Team Championships against The Hurt Business on Monday. They then joined up with their Survivor Series opponents The Street Profits to defeat Dolph Ziggler, Robert Roode, King Corbin & Sami Zayn on SmackDown.

4. Roman Reigns [-2]

With Drew McIntyre now his opponent for Survivor Series, Roman Reigns talked some smack to his championship counterpart in a contract signing on SmackDown.

3. The Hurt Business [-2]

Cedric Alexander & Shelton Benjamin were unable to add more gold to The Hurt Business' collection on Monday, as they fell short in their title shot against Raw Tag Team Champions The New Day.

2. Asuka [+1]

While there is still no indication whatsoever of who Asuka will be feuding with coming out of Survivor Series, at least she was able to pick up a win in a Six-Woman Tag on Monday over Lana, Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax.

1. Drew McIntyre [+4]

Drew McIntyre scaled the mountain for the second time on Raw this week, reclaiming the WWE Championship over Randy Orton and setting him on a collision course with Universal Champion Roman Reigns at Survivor Series.


Bray Wyatt - Wearing his Firefly Funhouse attire, Bray Wyatt was able to beat The Miz on Raw, with a little helping hand from Alexa Bliss.

Kay Lee Ray - In a Falls Count Anywhere brawl, Kay Lee Ray once again defended the NXT UK Women's Championship against Piper Niven thanks to interference by Jinny.

Natalya - After weeks of trying to get on Team SmackDown, Natalya finally succeeded on Friday, beating Tamina one-on-one to earn her place.

Murphy - The student overcame the master on SmackDown this week, as Murphy pinned Seth Rollins clean as a sheet.

Daniel Bryan - Making up for his loss from a few weeks earlier, Daniel Bryan got the better of Jey Uso in SmackDown's main event.
