WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #366 - The Draft Commences | Smark Out Moment

WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #366 - The Draft Commences

Posted by Callum Wiggins Saturday, October 2, 2021

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. Io Shirai & Zoey Stark [NR]

Despite not being the best of friends, Io Shirai & Zoey Stark have established themselves as the most successful team in the history of the NXT Women's Tag Team Championships (low bar I know). Their reign continued on Tuesday after defeating Toxic Attraction.

9. The Usos [NR]

Another happy pair of champions this week were The Usos, as the SmackDown Tag Team Champions were victorious over The Street Profits at Extreme Rules.

8. Raquel Gonzalez [NR]

Back to NXT, this week's episode was headlined by Raquel Gonzalez defending her NXT Women's Championship over Franky Monet. While she retained her gold, Gonzalez was left laying at the end of the night following a post-match beatdown by Toxic Attraction.

7. Diamond Mine [+2]

After capturing the Cruiserweight Championship last week, Roderick Strong scored the first defense of his title on Tuesday's edition of NXT, defeating Grayson Waller.

6. Tommaso Ciampa [-2]

Tommaso Ciampa wasn't in action on NXT this week, as we are still waiting on confirmation over who will be the first challenger for his NXT Championship.

5. Shinsuke Nakamura & Rick Boogs [-4]

Shinsuke Nakamura & Rick Boogs were also absent from in-ring action this week, meaning they couldn't add to their ever-growing winning streak.

4. Big E [+3]

After a rocky start, Big E enjoyed a banner week to establish himself as WWE Champion. At Extreme Rules, The New Day (prior to being split again in the WWE Draft) beat Bobby Lashley, AJ Styles & Omos. Then, at the second time of asking, Big E defended his title against Lashley on Raw inside a Steel Cage.

3. Charlotte Flair [+2]

Charlotte Flair had a notable week, even by her standards. The Queen defended her Raw Women's Championship twice in two days - against Alexa Bliss at Extreme Rules, and against Doudrop on Raw - before she was then drafted to SmackDown.

2. Damian Priest [+1]

Damian Priest also enjoyed a pair of title defenses this week to remain the United States Champion. At Extreme Rules, Priest overcame the dual-threat of Sheamus and Jeff Hardy, and then beat Sheamus once again on Raw in a No Disqualification match.

1. Roman Reigns [+1]

Roman Reigns is unsurprisingly still the Universal Champion, as thanks to a malfunctioning ring rope he defeated The Demon Finn Balor in the main event of Extreme Rules.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

Liv Morgan - Over on the Extreme Rules Kick-Off, Liv Morgan scored a victory over Carmella.

The New Day - Now once again separated from their boy Big E, The New Day at least was able to team together to beat Bobby Lashley, AJ Styles & Omos on Extreme Rules. Then on SmackDown, they teamed with The Street Profits to beat Alpha Academy and The Dirty Dogs.

Angel Garza & Humberto Carrillo - The short-term push of the new pairing of Angel Garza & Humberto Carrillo continued on Raw, as Garza beat Erik of the Viking Raiders in singles action.

Happy Corbin & Madcap Moss - With his new sidekick Madcap Moss in tow, Happy Corbin got back to winning ways with a victory over Kevin Owens on SmackDown.

Sasha Banks - After returning to WWE to interrupt the SmackDown Women's Championship match at Extreme Rules, Sasha Banks got her win back over Bianca Belair in the SmackDown main event.

The Power Rankings Table (since WrestleMania 37)

  1. Roman Reigns - 25 weeks (7 weeks at #1)
  2. The Hurt Business - 21 weeks (2 weeks at #1)
  3. Bianca Belair - 20 weeks (6 weeks at #1)
  4. Shinsuke Nakamura - 16 weeks (4 weeks at #1)
  5. Nikki A.S.H - 13 weeks (2 weeks at #1)
  6. Apollo Crews - 11 weeks
  7. Damian Priest - 10 weeks (3 weeks at #1)
  8. Rhea Ripley - 10 weeks
  9. AJ Styles & Omos - 9 weeks
  10. RKBro - 9 weeks

BIGGEST MOVES THIS WEEK

Big E +3

Shinsuke Nakamura & Rick Boogs -4
