WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #419 - Who Will Take It To The Extreme? | 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. The New Day [NR]

Surprisingly appearing on the Power Rankings for the first time this year, The New Day leaped on and into the Tag Team Championship picture by teaming with Braun Strowman to defeat The Bloodline's The Usos & Sami Zayn.

9. Von Wagner [NR]

The imposing Von Wagner beat Andre Chase on the first 'revamped' episode of NXT to earn his place in the upcoming Five-Way Ladder Match for the vacant North American Championship.

8. Nikkita Lyons & Zoey Stark [NR]

Also on NXT the newly-formed tandem of Nikkita Lyons & Zoey Stark was victorious over multi-time champions Toxic Attraction to become the next challengers for Katana Chance & Kayden Carter's NXT Women's Tag Team Championships.

7. Liv Morgan [-3]

The packed SmackDown go-home show had no room for SmackDown Women's Champion Liv Morgan, with her feud with Ronda Rousey bottled into a video package before their clash at Extreme Rules.

6. Braun Strowman [NR]

Undefeated since his return to WWE, Braun Strowman picked up a pair of wins across TV this week. On Raw Strowman squashed Chad Gable, and then he showed up on SmackDown to help The New Day beat The Usos & Sami Zayn.

5. Pretty Deadly [NR]

The main event of the "white and gold" era of NXT saw Pretty Deadly retain their NXT Tag Team Championships over the surprise challengers of The Brawling Brutes, thanks to some timely interference from Imperium.

4. Imperium [NR]

Speaking of Imperium, ahead of their Extreme Rules Donnybrook with The Brawling Brutes, Gunther once again successfully defended the Intercontinental Championship against Sheamus on SmackDown, this time with the help of a shillelagh.

3. The Bloodline [-2]

Solo Sikoa's flawless start to life on the main roster continued this week, with him beating Angelo Dawkins on Raw and Ricochet on SmackDown. But it wasn't all plain sailing for The Bloodline this week, as The Usos & Sami Zayn fell in a Six-Man Tag against The New Day & Braun Strowman.

2. Bobby Lashley [+1]

United States Champion Bobby Lashley accepted the challenge of Mustafa Ali on Raw, and promptly beat him. However, he did suffer a post-match stomp from Seth Rollins.

1. Damage Ctrl [+1]

Two wins on Raw launch Damage Ctrl to top spot on the Power Rankings. Dakota Kai beat the recently returned Candice LeRae, and in the main event Iyo Sky defeated Alexa Bliss, with Bayley then standing tall over Bianca Belair.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

Judgment Day - With Finn Balor set to battle Edge at Extreme Rules, Judgment Day scored a tag team win over Rey Mysterio & AJ Styles on Raw.

Wendy Choo - Wendy Choo picked up a victory on NXT over recent rival Lash Legend.

The Creed Brothers - Julius Creed made light work of Duke Hudson on NXT, and was then challenged by Damon Kemp with Brutus' NXT future on the line.

Legada del Fantasma - They're back, and with a new look, as Legada del Fantasma jumped Hit Row on SmackDown, now with Zelina Vega by their side.

Raquel Rodriguez - While Shotzi may have her tank back, it is Raquel Rodriguez who continues to rack up the pins, as she and Shotzi easily beat Sonya Deville & Xia Li on SmackDown.
