WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #350 - Historic Title Reign Ends | 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. The Hurt Business [-4]

Bobby Lashley continues to soak in the lavishes of being WWE Champion on Raw, which includes not getting in the ring often. Instead, he endured a classic contract signing with Drew McIntyre on Raw, ended by a sword slicing a table in half.

9. Shinsuke Nakamura [NR]

Thanks to the constant backing of his personal guitarist Rick Boogs, Shinsuke Nakamura continues to wipe the floor with King Corbin on a weekly basis, beating him again on SmackDown to set up a "Battle for the Crown" next week.

8. Nikki Cross [NR]

After 2 straight weeks of lasting an eye-watering 2 minutes against both Charlotte Flair & Rhea Ripley, Nikki Cross actually got to pin one in a Tag Team match on Raw, albeit due to Flair turning on Ripley at the end of the match.

7. Natalya & Tamina [-2]

No sign of the Women's Tag Team Champions Natalya & Tamina on WWE TV this week. Which I guess isn't surprising, considering there is only 1 women's team they could potentially face at the moment in Mandy Rose & Dana Brooke.

6. Apollo Crews [-2]

Someone who could participate in a Tag Team match this week was Intercontinental Champion Apollo Crews. However, he was far from happy with this by the end, as he lost to Kevin Owens & Big E after his partner Sami Zayn was pinned.

5. The Viking Raiders [NR]

Dusted off after several weeks on the shelf, The Viking Raiders outlasted all rivals in a Tag Team Battle Royal to earn the next opportunity at the Raw Tag Team Championships.

4. Meiko Satomura [NR]

On Thursday, Meiko Satomura ended the historic 649-day reign of Kay Lee Ray as NXT UK Women's Champion, marking a significant changing of the guard across the pond.

3. The Mysterios [-2]

After being mauled by Roman Reigns on last week's SmackDown, Rey & Dominik Mysterio attempted to get revenge on him with a Singapore Cane on Friday. But, they were just mauled again, with Dominik powerbombed over the top rope to the floor.

2. Bianca Belair [No Change]

In what barely registered as an appearance on SmackDown, Bianca Belair laughed uproariously at her rival Bayley's "Ding Dong, Hello" set being ripped apart by Cesaro.

1. Roman Reigns [+2]

Roman Reigns was, as per usual, all over SmackDown on Friday, whether it was dealing with family squabbles between himself and The Usos, or launching Dominik Mysterio clear out of the ring with a powerbomb.


Jeff Hardy - Jeff Hardy actually got a win on Raw over Cedric Alexander, his first Singles win on the red brand since January.

Mansoor - With Mustafa Ali still in his ears, Mansoor blocked out all distractions and defeated Drew Gulak on Raw.

Hit Row - A big win for Isaiah Scott on NXT over a big man in Killian Dain.

Kevin Owens - After pinning Sami Zayn again in a Tag Team match also featuring Apollo Crews, Kevin Owens still has sights on the Intercontinental Championship.

Liv Morgan - Thanks to the magic of 50/50 booking, Liv Morgan got her win back over Carmella on Friday night after last week's defeat.
