WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #359 - SmackDown Revitalizes The Road To SummerSlam | 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. Drew McIntyre [NR]

Drew McIntyre continues to rack up wins in his feud with Jinder Mahal. On Monday, he beat hired goon Baron Corbin with relative ease, adding to the poor guy's woes.

9. AJ Styles & Omos [-4]

In Raw's main event, AJ Styles fell to the returning Randy Orton, fuelling more speculation that RKBro will challenge for the Raw Tag Team Championships at SummerSlam.

8. Odyssey Jones [NR]

In relative ease, Odyssey Jones powered his way to the NXT Breakout Tournament Final with a victory over Trey Baxter.

7. Big E [-3]

Big E was a victim of petty theft on SmackDown, as the evermore desperate Baron Corbin stole his Money in the Bank briefcase backstage.

6. The Hurt Business [-3]

Nothing special for The Hurt Business this week, as Bobby Lashley & MVP conducted a short promo to maintain this tepid feud with Goldberg for the WWE Championship.

5. Roman Reigns [+1]

Universal Champion Roman Reigns was in his own promo segment on SmackDown, but his exchange with John Cena was far more compelling, heating up the angle before the SummerSlam main event.

4. Nikki ASH [-2]

Nikki ASH was thrown from pillar-to-post by Rhea Ripley prior to their upcoming SummerSlam Triple Threat for the Raw Women's Championship. However, the third member of that match, Charlotte Flair, interfered to cause a no contest.

3. Bianca Belair [-2]

Over on the blue brand, the SmackDown Women's Champion Bianca Belair had her contract signing with Sasha Banks, only to suffer a 3-on-1 beatdown by the Boss, Carmella and Zelina Vega.

2. Damian Priest [+5]

Damian Priest's winning streak continued on Monday's Raw with yet another victory over John Morrison. That United States Championship match with Sheamus can't come soon enough.

1. Shinsuke Nakamura [+8]

In a match thrown together on SmackDown with little-to-no build, King Shinsuke Nakamura defeated Apollo Crews to become the Intercontinental Champion for the second time.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

Alexa Bliss - Thanks to a bizarre, hokey wink by Lily the Doll, Alexa Bliss rolled-up Doudrop in their match on Raw.

RKBro - Randy Orton made his return to Raw and celebrated with a win over AJ Styles, as well as an RKO to his 'partner' Riddle.

Dakota Kai - Dakota Kai scored a win over the undefeated Sarray to gain momentum before her clash with Raquel Gonzalez for the NXT Women's Championship.

The Kings of NXT - In a bizarre bit of booking, Pete Dunne defeated Ilja Dragunov in the main event of NXT, less than 2 weeks before Dragunov challenges Walter for the NXT UK Championship.

The Street Profits - The Street Profits continue to show-up the team of Alpha Academy, beating them in tag team action on SmackDown.
