WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #408 - The Week Everything Changed | 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. Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams [-5]

As Carmelo Hayes awaits a new challenger for his North American Championship, it appears Trick Williams' beef with Wes Lee is far from over on NXT 2.0.

Finally racking up some wins after their ousting of Edge from the group, Damien Priest defeated Rey Mysterio on Raw and continued to try and lure Dominick into the Judgment Day.

8. Toxic Attraction [-5]

Toxic Attraction watched the main event of NXT 2.0 closely, as the returning Zoey Stark won a Battle Royal to earn the next opportunity at Mandy Rose's NXT Women's Championship.

7. AJ Styles [NR]

AJ Styles scored a win over Money in the Bank holder Theory on Monday's Raw, thanks in part to a distraction by Dolph Ziggler.

Across both singles and tag team action this week, The Street Profits managed to score three victories between them - although all of them were by disqualification.

With a little help from Fallon Henley at ringside, Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen fought back the challenge of Pretty Deadly to retain their NXT UK Tag Team Championships on Tuesday night.
