WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #355 - The Slow Climb To Money In The Bank | 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. MSK [-4]

After successfully defending their NXT Tag Team Championships at the Great American Bash, MSK are awaiting who will be the next team to pose a challenge.

9. Seth Rollins [NR]

Just a few days shy of Money in the Bank, Seth Rollins defeated his SmackDown rivals Big E, Kevin Owens and Shinsuke Nakamura in Friday's Fatal Four-Way.

8. Shotzi & Nox [NR]

Only two weeks on SmackDown and Shotzi & Nox scored their second win over the WWE Women's Tag Team Champions Natalya & Tamina.

7. Io Shirai & Zoey Stark [-5]

Meanwhile, NXT's Women's Tag Team Champions took a week off after capturing the belts, again with no challengers in sight right now for Io Shirai & Zoey Stark.

6. The New Day [NR]

With Bobby Lashley & MVP's friendship seemingly hitting an all-time low, The New Day is going from strength to strength, as Xavier Woods shocked the WWE Champion on Raw.

5. Shinsuke Nakamura [-4]

King Nakamura's great winning run came to a stop on SmackDown, as he failed to win a Fatal Four-Way against Big E, Kevin Owens and, the eventual winner, Seth Rollins.

4. Karrion Kross [NR]

In Tuesday's main event, NXT Champion Karrion Kross defended his title fairly comfortably over Johnny Gargano. Then, following his victory, he choked out special referee Samoa Joe to send a message to NXT's enforcer.

On the first SmackDown in front of fans for over a year, Roman Reigns teamed with his cousins The Usos to a win over the trio of Edge, Rey & Dominik Mysterio.

Nikki A.S.H returned to form leading into Money in the Bank on Monday's Raw, overcoming Asuka, Naomi and Alexa Bliss in a Fatal Four-Way.
