WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #352 - Even More Hell In Even More Cells | 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. Shinsuke Nakamura [-4]

No in-ring action for Shinsuke Nakamura this week. Instead, we witnessed a glorious coronation for the new King of SmackDown, accompanied by Rick Boogs on guitar.

9. RKBro [+1]

Raw didn't start off very well for the RKBro tandem, as Randy Orton lost his Money in the Bank qualifying match to John Morrison. But Riddle was significantly more successful, beating Drew McIntyre to earn his spot in the match.

8. Apollo Crews & Commander Azeez [-5]

In approximately their 849th match this year, Apollo Crews fell to defeat against Big E, which means the Intercontinental Champion missed his chance to qualify for Money in the Bank.

7. Seth Rollins [NR]

A successful week for Seth Rollins after several months of misery. At Hell in a Cell, Rollins scored a much-needed win over his bitter rival Cesaro. He followed this on SmackDown by teaming with Bayley to defeat the combination of Cesaro and Bianca Belair.

6. Alexa Bliss [NR]

Another person who enjoyed a double-win this week was Alexa Bliss. Leaning on her mind-control powers, Bliss beat Shayna Baszler at Hell in a Cell. Then on Raw, Bliss teamed with Nikki Cross to defeat Baszler & Nia Jax, earning her place in the Women's Money in the Bank Ladder Match.

5. The Viking Raiders [-3]

The Viking Raiders are still waiting for their Raw Tag Team Championship match, and so on Monday, they helped one of the champs, AJ Styles, lose his Money in the Bank qualifier against Ricochet.

4. The Hurt Business [NR]

Bobby Lashley rid himself of the threat of Drew McIntyre to his WWE Championship once and for all inside Hell in a Cell, beating him thanks to some help by MVP. Lashley then entered the Cell one more time on Raw to defeat Xavier Woods.

3. Nikki Cross [+2]

Now in the guise of a upbeat superhero, Nikki Cross continued her recent winning streak on Raw by teaming with Alexa Bliss to defeat Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax, making sure both will be part of the Women's Money in the Bank Ladder Match.

2. Roman Reigns [-1]

Having dispatched Rey Mysterio last week, Roman Reigns arrived on SmackDown to declare there was no one left to challenge him for the Universal Championship. Enter Edge, who returned to attack Reigns and place himself back into the title picture.

1. Bianca Belair [+3]

Although her week didn't end particularly well when she was pinned in a Mixed Tag Match, SmackDown Women's Champion Bianca Belair did successfully defend her title inside Hell in a Cell against Bayley on Sunday.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

Sami Zayn - In something of a surprise result, Sami Zayn beat his long-time rival Kevin Owens at Hell in a Cell.

Ricochet - Ricochet became the first Raw participant in the Men's Money in the Bank Ladder Match when he overcame AJ Styles on Raw.

Miz & Morrison - Another man who will battle for the Money in the Bank briefcase is John Morrison, after he defeated Randy Orton on Monday night.

Kyle O'Reilly - In NXT's main event, Kyle O'Reilly got the better of Kushida in a typically stellar match for both men.

Big E - Big E earned a big opportunity on SmackDown, defeating Apollo Crews to qualify for the Men's Money in the Bank Ladder Match.
