WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #363 - WWE's Triumphant Return To Madison Square Garden | 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. Seth Rollins [NR]

Seth Rollins got his revenge on Edge by winning their rematch on SmackDown, and gave this victory a powerful exclamation point by stomping Edge into the mat, sending the veteran out of Madison Square Garden in an ambulance.

9. Drew McIntyre [-4]

Drew McIntyre's downward cycle continues away from the main event scene on Raw, as he was defeated by Sheamus in a match to determine the next challenger for Damian Priest's United States Championship.

8. Karrion Kross [+2]

Karrion Kross is finally being booked the way that many anticipated he would following his Raw debut, comfortably squashing John Morrison on Monday's show. But is it simply a case of too little, too late?

7. MSK [NR]

MSK are still the NXT Tag Team Champions after closing out Tuesday's episode with a victory over former champions Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch.

6. RKBro [-2]

The Raw Tag Team Champions watched from afar as every tag team on the roster battled for an opportunity at their titles in Tag Team Turmoil. Meanwhile, Randy Orton will be next in line for a WWE Championship match after Bobby Lashley accepted his challenge.

5. Charlotte Flair [NR]

Following her surprise defeat to Nia Jax on last week's Raw, Charlotte Flair made no mistake this week, beating her larger foe to retain the Raw Women's Championship.

4. The Hurt Business [+3]

Getting the luck of the draw in Raw's Tag Team Turmoil match, Bobby Lashley & MVP entered last and defeated AJ Styles & Omos to earn a future Raw Tag Team Championship opportunity.

3. Roman Reigns [-1]

Roman Reigns now finds himself in the crosshairs of two formidable challengers for his Universal Championship, as on SmackDown he was confronted by both Brock Lesnar and the Demon Finn Balor.

2. Damian Priest [-1]

United States Champion Damian Priest can look forward to a familiar opponent at Extreme Rules for his United States Championship, as he will defend against the man he beat for the title at SummerSlam, Sheamus.

1. Shinsuke Nakamura & Rick Boogs [+2]

There is no stopping the momentum of Shinsuke Nakamura & Rick Boogs, as their tandem was once again victorious on SmackDown, teaming with Big E and The Mysterios to beat Sami Zayn, The Dirty Dogs and Alpha Academy.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

The New Day - While The New Day were not victorious in Raw's Tag Team Turmoil match, they outlasted almost the entirety of the tag division with wins over Viking Raiders, Jinder Mahal & Veer, Lucha House Party, T-Bar & Mace and Mustafa Ali & Mansoor.

Sheamus - Sheamus defeated longtime rival Drew McIntyre to earn a rematch for the United States Championship.

Rhea Ripley & Nikki ASH - Another addition to Raw's growing collection of odd-couple tag teams, Rhea Ripley & Nikki ASH beat the hapless Women's Tag Team Champions Natalya & Tamina on Monday night.

Io Shirai & Zoey Stark - NXT's Women's Tag Team Champions were far more successful this week, as Io Shirai & Zoey Stark defended their belts against Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Karter.

Big E - Mr Money in the Bank Big E scored the pin over Sami Zayn in SmackDown's mammoth 10-man tag team match.
