WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #402 - In Your Cell & Hell In A House | 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. Gunther & Ludwig Kaiser [NR]

On SmackDown, Gunther extended his winning streak since joining the main roster by capturing the Intercontinental Championship from Ricochet, claiming his first gold in WWE since losing the United Kingdom Championship in 2021.

9. Diamond Mine [NR]

In a move that felt long overdue, Diamond Mine's Creed Brothers defeated Pretty Deadly at In Your House to become the new NXT Tag Team Champions.

8. Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams [NR]

The tag titles were not the only belts to switch hands at In Your House, as Carmelo Hayes won back the NXT North American Championship from Cameron Grimes the same night.

7. Bron Breakker [NR]

A title that stayed right where it was at In Your House was the NXT Championship, as Bron Breakker kept his composure and fought back against Joe Gacy to stay top of the mountain on NXT 2.0.

6. The Usos [-5]

The Unified Tag Team Champions The Usos suffered a count-out loss to The Street Profits on Raw, potentially signifying who their next challengers for the belts will be in the coming weeks.

5. Bianca Belair [+4]

In a hard-fought and brilliantly wrestled Triple Threat at Hell in a Cell, Bianca Belair overcame both Becky Lynch and Asuka to retain her Raw Women's Championship.

4. Roxanne Perez [+3]

With her victory over Tiffany Stratton in the finals of the NXT Women's Breakout Tournament, Roxanne Perez has earned a championship opportunity in the near future.

3. Toxic Attraction [+2]

Speaking of the NXT's women's championships, Toxic Attraction are still firmly on top of the division, after Mandy Rose, Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne retained their respective titles at In Your House in matches against Wendy Choo, Katana Chance & Kayden Carter.

2. Theory [+1]

In a rematch from the previous episode of Raw, Theory successfully defended the United States Championship against the hometown boy Mustafa Ali.

1. Cody Rhodes [+1]

In one of the most captivating and heart-wrenching performances in modern wrestling history, Cody Rhodes wrestled through a torn pectoral muscle to defeat Seth Rollins inside Hell in a Cell, earning the WWE main roster its first 5* match since 2011.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

Bobby Lashley - Bobby Lashley with a little help by Cedric Alexander beat Omos & MVP in a Handicap Match at Hell in a Cell.

Kevin Owens - A win at Hell in a Cell for Kevin Owens over the guy who has been grinding his gears for months now, Ezekiel.

Judgment Day - It's been a weird week for Judgment Day, as at Hell in a Cell the original trio beat AJ Styles, Finn Balor & Liv Morgan. Then on Raw, Balor joined Damien Priest & Rhea Ripley to kick Edge out of the group, and Ripley became the next contender for Bianca Belair's Raw Women's Championship.

Madcap Moss - In a pretty violent No DQ match, Madcap Moss beat down and defeated his former ally Happy Corbin at Hell in a Cell.

Riddle - Two wins in two shows for Riddle this week, as he beat The Miz on Raw and Sami Zayn on SmackDown, earning a title match with Roman Reigns next week.
