WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #360 - Some Punk Overshadows The SummerSlam Build | 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. Carmelo Hayes [NR]

Carmelo Hayes set up an encounter with Odyssey Jones in the finals of the NXT Breakout Tournament, after he defeated Duke Hudson in his semi-final match.

9. Nikki ASH [-5]

Nikki ASH continues to flatter to deceive as Raw Women's Champion, losing twice on Monday night. Nikki first lost to Rhea Ripley in a decisive singles match, before teaming with Ripley in a defeat to Charlotte Flair and Nia Jax.

8. AJ Styles & Omos [NR or -# or +1]

A mixed bag on Monday night for the Raw Tag Team Champions. AJ Styles defeated Riddle in the opening match of the show, but later on Omos lost by disqualification to Randy Orton, before both were chased off by RKBro.

7. The Hurt Business [-1]

Just more talking for Bobby Lashley & MVP on Raw this week, as the WWE Champion exchanged insults with Goldberg prior to SummerSlam. However, Lashley did eat a Spear from Goldberg to end the exchange.

6. Roman Reigns [-1]

Meanwhile the Universal Champion Roman Reigns was also talking with his SummerSlam opponent on SmackDown, and was briefly rolled-up by John Cena to demonstrate how quickly that three-count can happen.

5. Drew McIntyre [+5]

A comfortable win by Drew McIntyre over both Veer & Shanky in the lead-up to his ice-cold encounter with Jinder Mahal at SummerSlam.

4. MSK [NR]

After what feels like months of inactivity, MSK returned to successfully defend their NXT Tag Team Championships on Tuesday against Imperium.

3. Damian Priest [-1]

A straightforward victory for Damian Priest over The Miz on Raw for the 65th time this year, giving him more momentum leading into SummerSlam.

2. Shinsuke Nakamura [-1]

Newly crowned Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura teamed with his guitarist Rick Boogs to defeat Apollo Crews & Commander Azeez on SmackDown.

1. Bianca Belair [+2]

With Sasha Banks nowhere to be seen on the go-home show for SummerSlam, Bianca Belair instead defeated Zelina Vega and Carmella in back-to-back singles matches.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

Karrion Kross - Karrion Kross handily defeated Jeff Hardy on Raw, improving his record against the veteran to 2-1.

Ilja Dragunov - After last week's baffling loss to Pete Dunne, Ilja Dragunov bounced back on Tuesday with a victory over Roderick Strong.

InDex - NXT's latest power couple performed well as a tandem in their win over Robert Stone & Jessi Kamea.

The Usos - In their most recent one-on-one exchange with a member of the Mysterio family, Jey Uso pinned Rey Mysterio on SmackDown.

Shotzi & Nox - For the third straight time in a couple of months, Shotzi & Nox defeated the WWE Women's Tag Team Champions Natalya & Tamina in a non-title match.
