WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #322 - Survivor Series Fallout | Smark Out Moment

WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #322 - Survivor Series Fallout

Posted by Callum Wiggins Saturday, November 28, 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. Riddle [NR]

After helping Team Raw to a clean sweep at Survivor Series, with Riddle eliminating King Corbin along the way, The Original Bro then overcame Sheamus on Monday to qualify for next week's Triple Threat to determine Drew McIntyre's next challenger.

9. The Kings of NXT [NR]

The Kings of NXT secured the all-important man advantage for WarGames when Pete Dunne defeated Kyle O'Reilly in a brutal Ladder Match on Wednesday night.

8. Lana [NR]

Despite virtually no contribution to the match whatsoever, Lana was the sole survivor for Team Raw at Survivor Series when the remaining competitors were counted out. Then, following an interrupted Women's Championship match with Asuka, Lana teamed with the Empress of Tomorrow to beat the Women's Tag Team Champions Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax.

7. Drew McIntyre [-6]

Drew McIntyre plummets from the top of the Power Rankings after both failing to defeat Roman Reigns at Survivor Series in the clash of the World Champions, and then failing to even show up for Raw the following night.

6. AJ Styles [+3]

Someone who enjoyed a much more successful Sunday and Monday was AJ Styles. Styles led Team Raw to victory at Survivor Series, including the elimination of Kevin Owens, and then the Phenomenal One defeated Randy Orton on Raw to earn an opportunity to compete for the WWE Championship.

5. The Hurt Business [-2]

While Bobby Lashley got the job done at Survivor Series by comfortably beating Intercontinental Champion Sami Zayn, overall it was a week to forget for The Hurt Business. On Raw, Cedric Alexander & Shelton Benjamin once again failed to capture the Raw Tag Team Championships from The New Day, and Lashley lost to Keith Lee due to MVP's interference drawing a DQ.

4. Sasha Banks [+2]

The battle of Raw and SmackDown's Women's Champions at Survivor Series resulted in a clean victory by Sasha Banks over Asuka, in a match that was absolutely Joshi-riffic. The Boss also got a measure of revenge against Carmella on SmackDown.

3. The New Day [+2]

Although Survivor Series was a less than ideal showing by The New Day, who fell to The Street Profits in the battle of the brands' Tag Team Champions, they saved the bigger victory for the following night. Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods once again got the better of The Hurt Business' Cedric Alexander & Shelton Benjamin to retain their titles.

2. Asuka [No Change]

Asuka was another Raw champion that didn't have the best Survivor Series as she fell to Sasha Banks in their Champion vs Champion match. But, she followed this up with two wins on Monday – a DQ win over Lana with the Raw Women's Championship at stake, and then teaming with Lana to defeat Shayna Bazler & Nia Jax.

1. Roman Reigns [+3]

The Tribal Chief cemented his status as WWE's premier World Champion at Survivor Series. Thanks to some shenanigans and interference by Jey Uso, Roman Reigns forced Drew McIntyre to pass out to the Guillotine on Sunday night.


Miz & Morrison - Mr Money in the Bank The Miz kicked off Survivor Series by winning an Inter-Brand Battle Royal, last eliminating Dominic Mysterio.

Keith Lee - A member of the victorious Team Raw at Survivor Series, Keith Lee continued his momentum on Monday with a DQ win over United States Champion Bobby Lashley.

Kushida - Kushida's winning streak continues to grow on NXT, as he forced Timothy Thatcher to tap out on Wednesday's show.

The Street Profits - The SmackDown Tag Team Champions won the brand battle with The New Day at Survivor Series, but this was tempered by a shock loss on SmackDown to Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode.

Bianca Belair - The last woman standing for Team SmackDown at Survivor Series, Bianca Belair scored a victory on Friday night over the veteran Natalya.
