WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #388 - McMahon & McAfee Shoot The Breeze | 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 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. Tommaso Ciampa [NR]

A pair of wins this week for Tommaso Ciampa over both halves of The Dirty Dawgs. The NXT veteran beat Robert Roode on Monday and pinned Dolph Ziggler in a tag match on Tuesday, earning him a shot at Bron Breakker and the NXT Championship.

9. Carmelo Hayes [NR]

In the main event of NXT 2.0, Carmelo Hayes retained his North American Championship against Pete Dunne, before stating that he will put the title on the line at NXT Stand & Deliver in a Ladder Match.

8. The Usos [NR]

The SmackDown Tag Team Championships remain around the waists of The Usos following their long overdue title defense against The Viking Raiders on Friday.

7. Ronda Rousey [+2]

In her first-ever match on SmackDown, Ronda Rousey comfortably won her main event bout against Sonya Deville, before making Charlotte Flair tap out to an Ankle Lock.

6. Roman Reigns [-3]

No in-ring action for Roman Reigns this week, as he and The Usos instead spent their time beating up Shinsuke Nakamura & Rick Boogs during their entrance for some reason.

5. Brock Lesnar [-3]

WWE Champion Brock Lesnar was missing from this week's shows as he prepares to defend his title against a mystery opponent at Saturday's MSG live event.

4. Ricochet [NR]

Both of WWE's midcard championships changed hands this week. On SmackDown, Ricochet capitalized on a Johnny Knoxville distraction to pin Sami Zayn and capture the Intercontinental Championship for the first time.

3. Finn Balor [NR]

Before that on Monday, Finn Balor started his first reign as United States Champion by ending Damian Priest's long reign.

2. Drew McIntyre [+3]

With Happy Corbin firmly in his sights for WrestleMania, Drew McIntyre comfortably beat his former 3MB bandmate Jinder Mahal on SmackDown.

1. Bianca Belair [No Change]

Another person who remains on a hot streak heading into WrestleMania 38 is Bianca Belair, who teamed with Rhea Ripley and Liv Morgan to earn a victory over Becky Lynch, Doudrop and Nikki ASH.
