WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #351 - Hell In A Cell Comes Early | 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. RKBro [NR]

In the fledgling team's most impressive victory to date, RKBro overcame The New Day in an excellent match on Raw.

9. Drew McIntyre [NR]

After his match with AJ Styles was rudely interrupted, Drew McIntyre sent a message to WWE Champion Bobby Lashley before Hell in a Cell by pinning him in their subsequent 6-Man Tag.

8. Kushida [NR]

In another open challenge with his Cruiserweight Championship on the line, Kushida overcame the exciting debutant Trey Baxter, before then accepting a challenge from Kyle O'Reilly.

7. The Mysterios [-4]

Even with the thought of avenging his fallen son Dominik powering him through, Rey Mysterio could not overcome the might of Roman Reigns inside Hell in a Cell.

6. Shinsuke Nakamura [+3]

After weeks and weeks of matches between Shinsuke Nakamura and King Corbin, the Japanese superstar finally got the decisive win and captured the crown for good in their clash on SmackDown.

5. Nikki Cross [+3]

Nikki Cross continues to pick up victories on Raw, albeit in less-than-convincing ways, and that followed suit in her count-out win over Charlotte Flair on Monday.

4. Bianca Belair [-2]

Bianca Belair issued the challenge to defend her SmackDown Women's Championship against Bayley inside Hell in a Cell, and then was promptly beaten down by her challenger.

3. Apollo Crews & Commander Azeez [+3]

In Commander Azeez's in-ring debut in his current gimmick, he and Intercontinental Champion Apollo Crews defeated Kevin Owens and Big E, thanks to a big distraction by Sami Zayn at ringside.

2. The Viking Raiders [+3]

Coming to the aid of Drew McIntyre in Raw's main event, The Viking Raiders then teamed with the Scotsman to earn a victory over AJ Styles, Omos & Bobby Lashley in a follow-up match.

1. Roman Reigns [No Change]

Deciding to get his Universal Championship defense done 2 days earlier than anticipated, Roman Reigns comfortably overcame Rey Mysterio, forcing him to tap out to the Guillotine Choke, before doing the exact same thing in the post-match.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

Eva Marie & "Doudrop" - In what was billed as her return to Raw, Eva Marie watched on as her new protege Doudrop (Piper Niven) easily beat Naomi.

Rhea Ripley - After some poor recent form, Rhea Ripley was able to score a victory over Asuka on Raw this week.

Breezango - Breezango also returned to winning ways after a long losing streak on Tuesday night, defeating Imperium.

Raquel Gonzalez & Dakota Kai - A good win for NXT Women's Champion Raquel Gonzalez & Dakota Kai over Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Karter as they continue to pursue a tag title opportunity.

Tommaso Ciampa & Timothy Thatcher - Another successful tag team on NXT this week was the tandem of Tommaso Ciampa & Timothy Thatcher, who beat Grizzled Young Veterans in Tuesday's main event.
