WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #344 - Reigns Beats Bryan Out Of SmackDown | 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. Braun Strowman [NR]

Although it was a rough start to the night on Raw for Braun Strowman, losing a tag match via countout to Mace & T-Bar, he more than made up for it in the night's main event, pinning Drew McIntyre to earn his own opportunity at Bobby Lashley's WWE Championship at WrestleMania Backlash.

9. RKBro [NR]

WWE's preoccupation with thrown-together tag teams concocted a good combination this week as the odd partnership of Randy Orton & Riddle defeated former Raw Tag Team Champions Shelton Benjamin & Cedric Alexander.

8. Legado del Fantasma [NR]

After a couple of weeks of misfortune for this faction, Legado del Fantasma got back on track in the main event of NXT, beating both Cruiserweight Champion Kushida and Tag Champions MSK in a Six-Man Tag.

7. Cesaro [-2]

Cesaro solely appeared on SmackDown to attempt to save Daniel Bryan from a post-match beatdown by Roman Reigns, only to find himself being picked apart by the Head of the Table and his cousin Jey Uso.

6. Natalya & Tamina [+3]

Natalya & Tamina continue to rack up wins on SmackDown in search of another WWE Women's Tag Team Championship opportunity, this Friday beating the champs Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax themselves.

5. Apollo Crews [-2]

Apollo Crews kept hold of his Intercontinental Championship on SmackDown, but only as a result of losing by DQ to Big E when Commander Azeez interfered on Crews' behalf when Big E seemingly had the title won.

4. Rhea Ripley [+2]

A win for Raw Women's Champion Rhea Ripley this week as she teamed with Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax to defeat Asuka, Naomi & Lana in a Six-Woman Tag.

3. The Hurt Business [-1]

Bobby Lashley returned on Raw to complain about the prospect of Braun Strowman being added to the WWE Championship match at WrestleMania Backlash, but then couldn't prevent that from happening in Monday's main event.

2. Bianca Belair [+2]

In yet another Six-Person Match on WWE TV this week, SmackDown Women's Champion Bianca Belair teamed with The Street Profits to overcome Bayley & The Dirty Dogs.

1. Roman Reigns [No Change]

Unsurprisingly, The Head of the Table remains at the top of the Power Rankings for a second week after Roman Reigns successfully defended his Universal Championship over Daniel Bryan in SmackDown's blockbuster main event.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

Mace & T-Bar - Again, it may only be by count out, but Mace & T-Bar picked up another win over Drew McIntyre & Braun Strowman this week on Raw.

Charlotte Flair - Fresh off of her 1-week suspension, Charlotte Flair was back to winning ways with a victory over Mandy Rose on Raw.

Zayda Ramier - This may be the one and only time Zayda Ramier appears on the Power Rankings in any fashion, but she earned it with a fluke win over Toni Storm on Wednesday's NXT.

Bronson Reed - Bronson Reed will get another shot at Johnny Gargano's North American Championship after beating Austin Theory on NXT.

The Street Profits - A win for The Street Profits & Bianca Belair on SmackDown over The Dirty Dogs & Bayley means they may be in line for another SmackDown Tag Team Championship match.

BIGGEST MOVES THIS WEEK

Natalya & Tamina +3

Apollo Crews & Cesaro -2
