WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #368 - Getting Closer To That Sweet Saudi Money | 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. Sasha Banks [NR]

Although Sasha Banks couldn't coexist with her tag team partner Bianca Belair on Raw, leading to a double DQ against Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair, she did bounce back with a one-on-one victory over Lynch in SmackDown's main event.

9. Zelina Vega [NR]

In yet another typically short Queen's Crown Tournament match, Zelina Vega advanced to the finals at Crown Jewel by defeating Carmella, thanks to a distraction by Liv Morgan.

8. Shayna Baszler [NR]

A pair of wins for the rejuvenated Queen of Spades this week. First, Shayna Baszler comfortably beat Dana Brooke on Raw to reach the semi-finals of the Queen's Crown Tournament. Then on SmackDown, she helped out Sonya Deville to win a Handicap Match over Naomi.

7. Charlotte Flair [-3]

A significant drop for Charlotte Flair this week as she couldn't get along with her rival champion Becky Lynch on Raw in a tag team contest. This led to a double DQ against fellow warring partners Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair.

6. Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams [NR]

Capitalising on an already worn-down Isaiah Swerve Scott, Carmelo Hayes "cashed-in" his Breakout Tournament contract and captured the NXT North American Championship.

5. Big E [-3]

Raw was built around battling tag team partners, as WWE Champion Big E ended up at loggerheads with his upcoming challenger Drew McIntyre, causing them to lose Raw's main event to The Usos.

4. The Usos [NR]

Speaking of the SmackDown Tag Team Champions, not only did The Usos get a count-out win over Big E and Drew McIntyre on Raw, but they also defended their titles once again over The Street Profits on SmackDown.

3. Damian Priest [-2]

After several weeks of consistent United States Championship defenses, Damian Priest was nowhere to be seen on the latest edition of Monday Night Raw.

2. Roman Reigns [+1]

Universal Champion Roman Reigns rises up the rankings a bit by virtue of being part of the main event segment on SmackDown, a contract signing with Brock Lesnar before their match at Crown Jewel.

1. Finn Balor [+7]

Finn Balor rockets up the Power Rankings by being the first man to book his ticket for Crown Jewel in the finals of the King of the Ring tournament, after he defeated Sami Zayn on SmackDown.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

The New Day - Xavier Woods continued his never-ending quest to become King of the Ring on Raw, beating Ricochet in the tournament quarter-finals.

Jinder Mahal - However, Jinder Mahal prevented a New Day clash in the King of the Ring semi-finals, as he defeated Kofi Kingston on the same episode of Raw.

Doudrop - Over on the Queen's Crown side of things, Doudrop advanced to the semi-finals by overcoming Natalya.

Diamond Mine - There were a pair of victories for Diamond Mine members on Tuesday's NXT. Ivy Nile scored a debut win over Valentina Feroz, while Julius Creed beat Ikemen Jiro.

Von Wagner - Teaming up with Kyle O'Reilly, Von Wagner scored the pin in their match with Pete Dunne & Ridge Holland on NXT.
