WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #358 - Raw's Repetitive, SmackDown's Stale & NXT's Depleted | 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. Reggie [NR]

It says a lot when your 24/7 is one of the most protected superstars on your roster. But the newly-christened Reggie continues to rack up title defenses, pinning Akira Tozawa on this week's Raw.

9. Shinsuke Nakamura [=+1]

Shinsuke Nakamura did score a victory over Intercontinental Champion Apollo Crews on SmackDown, albeit via disqualification following interference from Commander Azeez.

8. Charlotte Flair [-2]

In yet another example of both Raw's reliance on rematches and 50/50 booking, Charlotte Flair lost a No Disqualification Match with Nikki ASH, despite dominating throughout.

7. Damian Priest [+2]

Damian Priest racked up back-to-back wins on Monday night, beating John Morrison one-on-one before teaming with Ricochet to defeat Morrison and Sheamus.

6. Roman Reigns [-2]

Roman Reigns exchanged words with Finn Balor once again while his actual SummerSlam opponent John Cena was MIA. This ended with Reigns leading a beatdown of the Irishman alongside The Usos.

5. AJ Styles & Omos [+2]

Despite the absence of AJ Styles, Omos had the match of his career so far on Monday's Raw, overcoming Riddle prior to an expected Raw Tag Team Championship match at SummerSlam.

4. Big E [-1]

Not much for Big E on SmackDown this week, as he only briefly popped up backstage to play some mind games with Paul Heyman about his Money in the Bank briefcase.

3. The Hurt Business [-1]

More talking for Bobby Lashley & MVP this week after they were confronted by Goldberg. MVP was then speared on the outside by the aged star, setting up their SummerSlam clash for the WWE Championship.

2. Nikki ASH [+3]

Nikki ASH redeemed her loss to Charlotte Flair the previous week by besting The Queen in a No DQ match on Monday's Raw.

1. Bianca Belair [No Change]

Although it wasn't the SmackDown Women's Championship match advertised earlier in the show, Bianca Belair still put in the effort required to defeat Zelina Vega on SmackDown.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

Rhea Ripley - Temporarily missing from the Raw Women's Championship feud, Rhea Ripley scored a victory over Nia Jax on Monday night.

Keith Lee - Beating the NXT Champion used to be a big deal, but Keith Lee is just the latest person to do this to Karrion Kross on Raw, avenging last week's loss.

Trey Baxter - The final first-round match of the NXT Breakout Tournament saw Trey Baxter defeat Joe Gacy.

The Way - Johnny Gargano was victorious in the Lover Her Or Lose Her Match against Dexter Lumis. But this didn't matter as Indi Hartwell immediately went against the stipulation by kissing Lumis post-match anyway.

Shotzi & Nox - While Natalya is still out of commission, Nox beat one half of the Women's Tag Team Champions Tamina on SmackDown.

The Power Rankings Table (since WrestleMania 37)

  1. Roman Reigns - 17 weeks (6 weeks at #1)
  2. Bianca Belair - 17 weeks (5 weeks at #1)
  3. The Hurt Business - 15 weeks (2 weeks at #1)
  4. Apollo Crews - 11 weeks
  5. Nikki A.S.H - 9 weeks (2 weeks at #1)
