WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #353 - Even More Money In The Bank Qualifiers | 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. Liv Morgan [NR]

Although she continues to be overlooked for the Women's Money in the Bank Ladder Match by Sonya Deville, Liv Morgan continues to rack up wins on SmackDown. This week, she defeated the returning Zelina Vega.

9. Kevin Owens [NR]

Making up for his loss at Hell in a Cell to Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens defeated his longtime rival in a Last Man Standing Match on SmackDown, earning his place in the Men's Money in the Bank Ladder Match.

8. Drew McIntyre [NR]

Someone who will be joining Kevin Owens in the Men's Money in the Bank Ladder Match is Drew McIntyre, after he overcame both Riddle and AJ Styles in Raw's main event.

7. Io Shirai & Zoey Stark [NR]

After only recently forming their makeshift tag team, Io Shirai & Zoey Stark will have the next opportunity at the NXT Women's Tag Team Championships after beating Raquel Gonzalez & Dakota Kai and Ember Moon & Shotzi Blackheart on Tuesday.

6. Shinsuke Nakamura [+4]

Another victory for King Nakamura on SmackDown this week, as he teamed with Big E to defeat Apollo Crews and the hapless Baron Corbin.

5. The Hurt Business [-1]

No sign of WWE Champion Bobby Lashley on this week's Raw. Instead, MVP exchanged a war of words with Kofi Kingston, ending with him eating a Trouble in Paradise.

4. Hit Row [NR]

Hit Row has really gathered steam in the months since forming, and that early potential was realized this past Tuesday, as Isaiah Scott defeated Bronson Reed to become the new NXT North American Champion.

3. Roman Reigns [-1]

Another world champion missing in action this week was Universal Champion Roman Reigns. So, instead it was left to Jimmy Uso to get involved with Reigns' next challenger Edge on SmackDown.

2. Bianca Belair [-1]

SmackDown Women's Champion Bianca Belair was in the ring this week, just not in a match. Instead, she challenged Bayley to yet another title match at Money in the Bank, only this time it will be an I Quit Match.

1. Nikki Cross [+2]

Nikki Cross tops the Power Rankings after continuing to collect wins in her new superhero persona, this week beating Shayna Baszler on Raw with a little help from Alexa Bliss at ringside.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

Eva Marie & Doudrop - After last week's miscommunication cost them a spot at Money in the Bank, Eva Marie tried to abandon Doudrop in a rematch on Monday's Raw, only for Doudrop to beat Asuka & Naomi single-handed.

Jaxson Ryker - Jaxson Ryker beat Elias in a Strap Match on Raw and that's all I'm going to say about the matter.

Tian Sha - Thanks to a kick that literally knocked Mercedes Martinez loopy, Tian Sha defeated her and Jake Atlas in a Mixed Tag on NXT.

Big E - Another win for Big E as he heads towards Money in the Bank, teaming with Shinsuke Nakamura to overcome Apollo Crews and Baron Corbin.

Alpha Academy - The newly focused Otis continues to dominate on SmackDown, again beating Angelo Dawkins with relative ease.

The Power Rankings Table (since WrestleMania 37)

  1. Roman Reigns - 12 weeks (6 weeks at #1)
  2. Bianca Belair - 12 weeks (2 weeka at #1)
