WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #340 - WrestleMania's Too Big For Two Nights | Smark Out Moment

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. Sheamus [NR]

With his feud with Drew McIntyre now firmly in the rear-view mirror, Sheamus has now set his sights on a WrestleMania match over the United States Championship, defeating current champ Riddle on this Monday's Raw in a non-title match.

9. LA Knight [NR]

Despite a poor showing against Bronson Reed last week, LA Knight more than made up for it this week by outlasting 11 other NXT superstars to win Wednesday's Battle Royal, which means he will enter last in the upcoming Gauntlet Eliminator Match to determine the next challenger for the North American Championship.

8. Daniel Bryan [NR]

Daniel Bryan built some major momentum heading into the WrestleMania 37 main event when he not only defeated Jey Uso in a Street Fight on SmackDown, but then proceeded to stand tall over both Edge and Roman Reigns by the close of the show.

7. The New Day [-2]

While The New Day comfortably won the Game Show they prepared against AJ Styles & Omos, the following match between Styles and Xavier Woods ended in a DQ when Omos got involved to start manhandling the Raw Tag Team Champions.

6. Bianca Belair [+1]

Bianca Belair continues to rack up a few additional wins on her road to that WrestleMania clash with Sasha Banks, this week defeating the last real thorn in the side of the current SmackDown Women's Champion, Carmella.

5. Roman Reigns [-1]

The Head of the Table did not simply have to endure the shame of watching his cousin Jey Uso lose to Daniel Bryan on SmackDown in a Street Fight, but by the end of the show, Roman Reigns once again found himself struggling for air in the Yes Lock.

4. Drew McIntyre [+4]

Two wins back-to-back for Drew McIntyre on Raw over Ricochet and then Mustafa Ali as he continued to warm-up for Bobby Lashley at WrestleMania. But the night ended sourly for the Scotsman as he was taken out by an invading King Corbin.

3. Riddle [-1]

A loss for Riddle at the boot of Sheamus on Monday's edition of Raw means he will now have to defend his United States Championship against the Irishman at WrestleMania.

2. Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax [-1]

The Women's Tag Team Champions tumble from the top spot this week as the team's resident whipping girl, Shayna Baszler, lost both on Raw and SmackDown this week against Naomi and Natalya respectively.

1. The Hurt Business [+2]

They may be down two members now, but The Hurt Business still looks strong. Bobby Lashley capably dispatched of his former ally Shelton Benjamin on Raw, and later in the show sent a message to Drew McIntyre with the assistance of King Corbin.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

Braun Strowman - The Big Engine That Could, Braun Strowman, continued to work his way through Shane McMahon's goons by beating Jaxson Ryker on Raw.

Cameron Grimes - A good win for the wealthy Cameron Grimes on NXT this week, using mind games to overcome Roderick Strong.

Dakota Kai & Raquel Gonzalez - In between her constant brawling with Io Shirai throughout the night, Raquel Gonzalez picked up a win on NXT over Zoey Stark.

Alpha Academy - Enroute to the inevitable Fatal Four-Way for the SmackDown Tag Team Championships, Alpha Academy scored the win in an Eight-Man Tag over The Street Profits & The Mysterios.

Natalya & Tamina - Natalya & Tamina continued to pick up steam on SmackDown as the former beat Shayna Baszler fairly quickly in singles action.
