WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #381 - RK Oh No! | Smark Out Moment

WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #381 - RK Oh No!

Posted by Callum Wiggins Saturday, January 15, 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

10. Tony D'Angelo [NR]

In a first-time-ever Crowbar on a Pole Match, Tony D'Angelo defeated Pete Dunne, breaking the crowbar over his rival's head to secure the victory.

9. The Viking Raiders [NR]

In a Fatal Four-Way contender's match, The Viking Raiders overcame Los Lotharios, Jinder Mahal & Shanky, and Cesaro & Mansoor to earn the right to challenge The Usos for the SmackDown Tag Team Championships.

8. Becky Lynch [-2]

Becky Lynch watched as Bianca Belair, Liv Morgan and Doudrop battled for the right to face her at Royal Rumble, before interfering to prevent Belair from winning. This meant she'll now defend her Raw Women's Championship against Doudrop at the next PLE.

7. Doudrop [NR]

Speaking of Doudrop, she was victorious in Raw's main event Triple Threat, pinning Liv Morgan after Bianca Belair was taken out. The Scot then beat down Becky Lynch post-match, setting her sights firmly on the Raw Women's Championship.

6. AJ Styles [NR]

After severing his partnership with Omos last week, AJ Styles was back in winning form this week. On Raw, Styles defeated Austin Theory by DQ following interference by Grayson Waller. Styles then overcame Waller in the main event of NXT 2.0.

5. The Hurt Business [-1]

Bobby Lashley was eviscerated in a promo battle against Brock Lesnar on Raw leading into their match at the Royal Rumble, before beating up his former Hurt Business cohorts Shelton Benjamin & Cedric Alexander.

4. Alpha Academy [NR]

In a shock result, Alpha Academy defeated the super-over RK-Bro once again on Raw to capture the Raw Tag Team Championships.

3. Zelina Vega & Carmella [-1]

Following the break-up of Super Brutality on Raw, there are now absolutely no tag teams around to challenge Women's Tag Team Champions Zelina Vega & Carmella.

2. The Usos [+1]

The Usos kicked off SmackDown by introducing the four teams that would try to end their record-breaking reign as SmackDown Tag Team Champions, before running them all down on commentary.

1. Brock Lesnar [No Change]

For Brock Lesnar, simply showing up week-to-week is something to celebrate. On Raw, he absolutely demolished Bobby Lashley in a promo battle, with usual orators MVP and Paul Heyman simply watching from the sidelines.


Dirty Dawgs - In their endless battles with The Street Profits, the Dirty Dawgs got one over them in a Six-Man Tag on Raw, also involving Damian Priest and Apollo Crews.

Seth Rollins - On his path to challenge Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship at Royal Rumble, Seth Rollins beat former WWE Champion Big E on Raw.
