WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #349 - Championship Bouts & Roster Cuts | 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. Rhea Ripley [-4]

After failing to defeat Nikki Cross in 2 minutes last week, Rhea Ripley watched her opponent for Hell in a Cell, Charlotte Flair, do exactly the same thing on this week's Raw.

9. Kushida [NR]

Kushida successfully defended the NXT Cruiserweight Championship on Tuesday night against up-and-comer Carmelo Hayes, forcing him to submit to the Hoverboard Lock.

8. AJ Styles & Omos [NR]

The Raw Tag Team Champions, AJ Styles & Omos, retained their titles against the now seemingly disbanded team of Elias & Jaxson Ryker.

7. MSK [NR]

Another pair of champions that defended their belts this week was MSK, who overcame Legado del Fantasma to retain the NXT Tag Team Championships.

6. The Hurt Business [-2]

Bobby Lashley & MVP kicked back on Raw and could only watch on as Drew McIntyre once again became the next contender for Lashley's WWE Championship.

5. Natalya & Tamina [-2]

More champions that sat back and watched as their next challengers were determined, Natalya & Tamina watched Mandy Rose & Dana Brooke defeat Naomi & Lana on Raw.

4. Apollo Crews [+4]

Thanks in part to a pre-match attack by Commander Azeez, Apollo Crews retained his Intercontinental Championship against Kevin Owens on SmackDown.

3. Roman Reigns [-1]

The never-ending cycle of Roman Reigns being obsessed about his family's reputation continued on SmackDown, but at least we got to see him beat the hell out of the Mysterios as well.

2. Bianca Belair [-1]

We can look forward to yet another rematch at Hell in a Cell after Bianca Belair challenged Bayley to a match with the SmackDown Women's Championship on the line.

1. The Mysterios [+4]

While they ended Friday night being smeared across the mat by Roman Reigns, The Mysterios did successfully defend their SmackDown Tag Team Championships twice against The Usos.
