WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #379 - Smell You Later 2021! | Smark Out Moment

WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #379 - Smell You Later 2021!

Posted by Callum Wiggins Saturday, January 1, 2022

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 oneself, 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. Solo Sikoa [NR]

Solo Sikoa scored his biggest win since debuting on NXT 2.0 this week by defeating the former Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar.

9. Cora Jade [NR]

Cora Jade maintained her winning streak in the lead-up to her Triple Threat match for the NXT Women's Championship at New Year's Evil, teaming with her upcoming opponent Raquel Gonzalez to beat Io Shirai and Kay Lee Ray.

8. The Street Profits [NR]

In spite of a several week delay, The Street Profits won the RK-Bro Tournament over The Mysterios to earn the next shot at the Raw Tag Team Championships.

7. Big E [-2]

The WWE Champion was conspicuously absent from Raw this week outside of a backstage promo, preventing Big E from building some last-minute momentum.

6. RK-Bro [NR]

With The Street Profits now in their immediate future at Day 1, RK-Bro drew a line under their mini-feud with Alpha Academy on Raw, as Riddle beat Chad Gable while Randy Orton vanquished Otis.

5. Zelina Vega & Carmella [-1]

Only Carmella was present on Raw for the Women's Tag Team Champions, as they are being lined up for a title defense against the former champs Super Brutality.

4. The Hurt Business [-1]

Bobby Lashley was one of the many missing on Monday's edition of Raw, and instead The Hurt Business' occasional member Cedric Alexander suffered a defeat to Kevin Owens.

3. Raquel Gonzalez [+5]

Building up to a Triple Threat at New Year's Evil with Mandy Rose and Cora Jade over the NXT Women's Championship, Raquel Gonzalez reluctantly teamed with Jade to beat Io Shirai and Kay Lee Ray.

2. Bianca Belair [No Change]

With Doudrop now in the rear-view mirror, Bianca Belair took a break from Raw this Monday, hopefully awaiting a fresh challenger.

1. The New Day [No Change]

With SmackDown relegated to a clip show on Friday, The New Day stay top by default this week due to a lack of competition towards the summit of the Power Rankings.

Kevin Owens - The only member of Day 1's WWE Championship match to compete this week, Kevin Owens defeated part-time Hurt Business member Cedric Alexander.

Grayson Waller - NXT 2.0's most hated man Grayson Waller won Tuesday's opening match over Odyssey Jones.
