WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #333 - Loading The Chambers | Smark Out Moment

WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #333 - Loading The Chambers

Posted by Callum Wiggins Saturday, February 13, 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. Drew McIntyre [-4]

For the first time ever in 2021, WWE Champion Drew McIntyre battled Randy Orton in the main event of Raw, losing by disqualification due to Sheamus accidentally kicking the Viper's head off.

9. Cesaro [NR]

Teaming with his opponent from last week Daniel Bryan, Cesaro qualified for the Elimination Chamber by defeating SmackDown Tag Team Champions Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode.

8. Shotzi Blackheart & Ember Moon [NR]

In the second semi-final of the Women's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, Shotzi Blackheart & Ember Moon booked their spot on the NXT TakeOver: Vengeance Day card by beating The Way's Candice LeRae & Indie Hartwell.

7. MSK [NR]

Over on the men's side of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, MSK continued their strong start to life in NXT by overcoming Legata del Fantasma and secure a spot on their very first TakeOver.

6. Grizzled Young Veterans [NR]

The other half of the Men's Dusty Cup final was settled in NXT's main event, as the Grizzled Young Veterans defeated the makeshift combination of Tommaso Ciampa & Timothy Thatcher to set up that match with MSK at Vengeance Day.

5. Bianca Belair [-1]

Bianca Belair showed up on both Raw and SmackDown this week as she continues to stall on her decision for who to challenge at WrestleMania, but is yet to show any animosity towards either Asuka or Sasha Banks for the time being.

4. Edge [-1]

Edge meanwhile only popped up on Raw in a promo segment involving The Miz, John Morrison and Angel Garza, and again we are no clearer on who the Rated R Superstar will face at WrestleMania.

3. The Hurt Business [+2]

The Hurt Business wasn't in any in-ring competition this week, but Bobby Lashley continued to cement himself as one of the strongest champions in WWE right now by decimating both of his upcoming challengers in Keith Lee and Matt Riddle following their match.

2. Roman Reigns [-1]

Roman Reigns once again manipulated management into getting what he wanted at Elimination Chamber, which is that he will defend his Universal Championship against the Chamber winner immediately after that gruelling match.

1. Big E [+1]

Big E successfully defended his Intercontinental Championship against Shinsuke Nakamura on SmackDown, albeit courtesy of a DQ when Apollo Crews interfered and assaulted the champ to continue their feud.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

AJ Styles - Prior to them both being part of Raw's Elimination Chamber Match, AJ Styles defeated Jeff Hardy in Raw's opener.

Keith Lee - Making a triumphant return to Raw, Keith Lee got the better of his buddy Riddle, before suffering a beatdown by the dominant Bobby Lashley.

Lana & Naomi - It was 2-for-2 over the Women's Tag Team Champions for the current Number One Contenders, as Lana defeated Nia Jax and her hole in a Tables Match, while Naomi scored a pin over Shayna Baszler.

Sami Zayn - Teaming with King Corbin, Sami Zayn scored a decisive pinfall over Dominic Mysterio to earn his place in SmackDown's Elimination Chamber match.

Daniel Bryan - Daniel Bryan will also be one of the men battling in the Chamber for a Universal Championship opportunity as he and Cesaro overcame Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode on SmackDown.
