WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #331 - Let's Get Ready To Rumble | Smark Out Moment

WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #331 - Let's Get Ready To Rumble

Posted by Callum Wiggins Saturday, January 30, 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. Dakota Kai & Raquel Gonzalez [NR]

The red-hot favorites for the Women's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic got off to the perfect start on NXT this week, as Dakota Kai & Raquel Gonzalez made light work of Aliyah & Jessi Kamea.

9. Grizzled Young Veterans [NR]

Over on the other side of the bracket, Grizzled Young Veterans continued their march towards the Dusty Rhodes Classic trophy by overcoming Kushida & Leon Ruff.

8. Riddle [NR]

In his ongoing battles with The Hurt Business, Riddle had his most impressive outing yet, defeating Shelton Benjamin, MVP and Cedric Alexander back-to-back-to-back in a Gauntlet Match.

7. Alexa Bliss [+1]

Technically Alexa Bliss, or The Fiend, or whoever she is at the moment, did win Raw's main event over Asuka. But, she did not capture the Raw Women's Championship as it came through a DQ when Randy Orton interfered and dropped Bliss-Fiend with an RKO.

6. Asuka [-1]

Asuka, as has often been the case during her Raw Women's Championship run, played the third wheel in her own title defense on Monday's show, barely surviving Bliss-Fiend and only having her reign saved by the interference of Randy Orton.

5. The Hurt Business [-4]

A really bad week for The Hurt Business as despite the odds overwhelmingly in their favor, one by one Shelton Benjamin, MVP and Cedric Alexander suffered losses to Riddle.

4. Charlotte Flair [+2]

With all of Raw and SmackDown seemingly matches leading to other matches on the same show at the moment, Charlotte Flair went 2-1 on Monday's show, winning a match by DQ and then count-out before then losing a Six Woman Tag.

3. AJ Styles [-1]

Speaking of multiple matches on the same show, AJ Styles beat R-Truth on Raw, but then things went bizarre on his trip to SmackDown. Styles lost three consecutive singles and then tag team matches with an ever-growing number of competitors.

2. Big E [+2]

Big E on the other hand was one of the beneficiaries of that ridiculous ending to Friday's SmackDown, getting two consecutive tag team victories over a combination of heels.

1. Roman Reigns [+2]

Roman Reigns benefitted from having a strong promo exchange with Kevin Owens on SmackDown, and for staying well clear of the 50-50 in-ring action that underlined the entire week on Raw and SmackDown.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

MSK - MSK progressed to the semi-finals of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic with a victory over Drake Maverick & Killian Dain.

Bronson Reed - Bronson Reed continues to rack up wins on NXT week-after-week, this time defeating Isaiah Scott.

Undisputed Era & Finn Balor - Only a few weeks removed from battling over the NXT Championship, Finn Balor & Kyle O'Reilly put their differences aside to defeat Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch in Wednesday's main event.

Bianca Belair - Bianca Belair finally scored a clean and decisive win over Bayley in the opening match of Friday's SmackDown.

Daniel Bryan - It was 3 wins from 3 matches for Daniel Bryan on SmackDown, going from a singles to a 6-man and then finally a 10-man tag match.

The Power Rankings Table (since WrestleMania 36)

  1. Drew McIntyre - 39 weeks (8 weeks at #1)
  2. Asuka - 38 weeks (11 weeks at #1)
  3. The Hurt Business - 31 weeks (8 weeks at #1)
