WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #327 - Enter 2021 | Smark Out Moment

WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #327 - Enter 2021

Posted by Callum Wiggins Saturday, January 2, 2021

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. Keith Lee [NR]

Keith Lee will have the chance to make the perfect start to the New Year on Monday after defeating Sheamus on Raw to earn an opportunity at Drew McIntyre and the WWE Championship.

9. The Way [NR]

NXT's most prevailing curse was broken on Wednesday, as Johnny Gargano successfully retained his North American Championship against Leon Ruff.

8. Drew McIntyre [-3]

No in-ring action for Drew McIntyre this week, but he did a lot of talking on Raw and watched on as Keith Lee became the No.1 Contender for his WWE Championship.

7. Undisputed Era [-3]

As Kyle O'Reilly prepares for his shot at the NXT Championship and the rest of Undisputed Era plan for the Dusty Rhodes Classic, Roderick Strong suffered a defeat to Pete Dunne on Wednesday's show.

6. AJ Styles [+2]

AJ Styles bounced back from his disappointing loss at TLC to Drew McIntyre by scoring a victory over Elias on Raw.

5. Big E [+2]

The new Intercontinental Champion scored two wins on the New Year's Day edition of SmackDown. Big E beat King Corbin by DQ when Sami Zayn, Steve Cutler & Wesley Blake interfered. When this turned into a tag match also involving Apollo Crews, the babyfaces logged another win.

4. Charlotte Flair [+2]

Charlotte Flair continues her strong winning return on Raw by defeating Nia Jax on Monday, albeit by DQ following interference by Shayna Baszler.

3. Asuka [-1]

Asuka was not in action this week, instead watching her partner Charlotte Flair's back in her match with Nia Jax, rescuing The Queen when Shayna Baszler attacked for the DQ.

2. Roman Reigns [+1]

While Roman Reigns' cousin Jey Uso once again fell to a defeat to Kevin Owens on SmackDown, it was the Universal Champion standing tall after the main event, assaulting Owens and tossing him from the stands through a table on the floor.

1. The Hurt Business [No Change]

The Hurt Business continue to consistently win on the red brand, this time winning an 8-Man Tag over Riddle, Jeff Hardy & The New Day on Monday.
