WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #365 - The Tribal Chief Dominates Both Brands | 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. Bron Breakker [NR]

Bron Breakker has caught the eye of many since the launch of NXT 2.0. The son of Rick Steiner followed up his debut victory last week with a win in Tuesday's main event, teaming with Tommaso Ciampa to defeat Pete Dunne & Ridge Holland.

9. Diamond Mine [NR]

The Diamond Mine got its first taste of gold on Tuesday's edition of NXT 2.0, as Roderick Strong overcame Kushida to capture the Cruiserweight Championship.

8. RKBro [+1]

Bouncing back from last week's loss, Randy Orton beat AJ Styles as the feud between RKBro and Styles & Omos shows no sign of ending.

7. Big E [-4]

After climbing to the top of the mountain last week, WWE Champion Big E came crashing back to earth on this week's Raw. First, The New Day lost to The Bloodline in the night's opening match. Then, in the main event, Big E was left laying while Roman Reigns pinned Bobby Lashley in their Triple Threat.

6. Rhea Ripley & Nikki ASH [+4]

We have new WWE Women's Tag Team Champions, as finally Natalya & Tamina's losing streak extended into an actual title match. The odd pairing of Rhea Ripley & Nikki ASH were the team to take advantage and capture the belts, and Nikki rubbed salt in the wounds on SmackDown with a win over Natalya.

5. Charlotte Flair [-1]

No match for Charlotte Flair this week, but she did get physical with her challenger for the Raw Women's Championship on Alexa Bliss' Playground. Flair was left fleeing her rival in the build-up to their encounter at Extreme Rules.

4. Tommaso Ciampa [+2]

Newly crowned NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa laid down a challenge to the entire NXT 2.0 roster, before then teaming with upstart Bron Breakker to defeat Pete Dunne & Ridge Holland in the night's main event.

3. Damian Priest [-2]

Instead of a match this week, United States Champion Damian Priest could only watch from ringside as his chances of retaining his title at Extreme Rules dipped, as Jeff Hardy beat Sheamus to make Sunday's contest a Triple Threat.

2. Roman Reigns [+3]

Roman Reigns absolutely dominated this week's television shows. The Universal Champion made a rare appearance on Raw, teaming with The Usos to defeat The New Day in the night's opening match, and then Reigns won a Triple Threat against WWE Champion Big E and former champion Bobby Lashley. Then, on his usual hunting grounds of SmackDown, the Tribal Chief overcame Montez Ford, before suffering a post-match attack by Finn Balor.

1. Shinsuke Nakamura & Rick Boogs [+1]

It's nothing but wins for Shinsuke Nakamura & Rick Boogs, and that continued this week. Nakamura put his Intercontinental Championship on the line against Apollo Crews, and the King of Strong Style held onto his gold.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

The Usos - The Usos supported their Tribal Chief Roman Reigns on Raw, helping him to win their Six-Man Tag Match over The New Day.

Shayna Baszler - In the most dominant performance she has had since arriving on the main roster, Shayna Baszler decimated former partner Nia Jax on Raw.

Jeff Hardy - The irrepressible Jeff Hardy will have another opportunity to capture a title at Extreme Rules, after he defeated Sheamus on Raw to throw his name into Extreme Rules' United States Championship match.

Odyssey Jones - In his first match since the rebranding of NXT 2.0, Odyssey Jones beat both Cary Millman & Darren Chiappetta in a 2-on-1 Handicap match.

Zelina Vega - Zelina Vega finally scored her first televised victory since returning to WWE back in July, beating Liv Morgan thanks to some help from Carmella.
