WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #397 - Spring Breakin' Towards WrestleMania Backlash | 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. AJ Styles [NR]

With his victory over Damian Priest on Raw, AJ Styles ensured that his rematch with Edge at WrestleMania Backlash will be one-on-one, with Priest banned from ringside.

The latest chapter in the never-ending rivalry between The Eastie Boys and The New Day continued on SmackDown, with Sheamus & Ridge Holland winning their Tables Match.
