WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #347 - Freaking Zombies | Smark Out Moment

WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #347 - Freaking Zombies

Posted by Callum Wiggins Saturday, May 22, 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. The New Day [NR]

It was the second coming of Kofimania on Raw this past week, as The New Day's Kofi Kingston not only beat Randy Orton in a singles match, but also scored a shock victory over WWE Champion Bobby Lashley in the non-title open challenge.

9. Bronson Reed [NR]

The colossal Bronson Reed finally captured his first piece of gold in NXT this week, defeating Johnny Gargano inside a Steel Cage to win the North American Championship.

8. Cesaro [-4]

Cesaro's opportunity at the Universal Championship didn't end as he would have hoped, as he passed out in Roman Reigns' Guillotine. Post-match he was beaten up by both Jey Uso and Seth Rollins, with the latter also giving him a beating on the following SmackDown.

7. The Mysterios [NR]

A moment of history was made at WrestleMania Backlash as Rey & Dominik Mysterio became the first father/son SmackDown Tag Team Champions when they defeated The Dirty Dawgz. Dominik followed this up with a one-on-one win over Robert Roode on SmackDown.

6. Natalya & Tamina [+1]

Natalya & Tamina made their first successful defense of their Women's Tag Team Championships on Raw this week over former champs Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax. But, they did suffer a loss on SmackDown in a Six-Woman Tag, falling to the combination of Baszler, Jax and Bayley.

5. Apollo Crews [+3]

With the odds stacked against him on SmackDown, Apollo Crews retained his Intercontinental Championship in a Fatal Four-Way against Big E, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn thanks to timely interference by both Commander Azeez and Aleister Black.

4. Bianca Belair [+1]

Bianca Belair was successful in her first SmackDown Women's Championship defense at WrestleMania Backlash over Bayley. However, it seems she isn't done with her yet, as on SmackDown Belair was on the losing end of a Six-Woman Tag against Bayley, Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax.

3. The Hurt Business [No Change]

Bobby Lashley overcame the sizeable opposition of Drew McIntyre and Braun Strowman at WrestleMania Backlash to remain WWE Champion. But, thanks to a distraction by the former on Raw, Lashley fell to a shock defeat to Kofi Kingston in Monday's main event.

2. Rhea Ripley [No Change]

Another champion that successfully retained their title in a Triple Threat at WrestleMania Backlash was Rhea Ripley, who is still Raw Women's Champion after defeating Charlotte Flair and Asuka.

1. Roman Reigns [No Change]

Roman Reigns was unsurprisingly victorious at WrestleMania Backlash over Cesaro, cementing his spot as Universal Champion and the Head of the Table.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

Sheamus - It was two wins in two nights for United States Champion Sheamus over Ricochet this past week.

Damian Priest - Damian Priest overcame The Miz, John Morrison, Lumberjacks and zombies this week, scoring a pair of victories along the way.

Asuka - Although she took the pin from Rhea Ripley at WrestleMania Backlash, Asuka bounced back with a win over Charlotte Flair on Raw.

Legado del Fantasma - A good win for Legado del Fantasma's Joaquin Wilde & Raul Mendoza on NXT over the veteran pair of Tommaso Ciampa & Timothy Thatcher.

Shinsuke Nakamura - Thanks to the help of the debuting Rick Boogs, Shinsuke Nakamura got a return win over King Corbin on Friday's SmackDown.
