WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #487 - So What's The Main Event Of WrestleMania This Week? | 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. Pete Dunne & Tyler Bate [NR]

In a battle between two teams of NXT Black & Gold stars, Pete Dunne & Tyler Bate came out on top over DIY on SmackDown to become the number one contenders to Judgment Day for the Tag Team Championships at Elimination Chamber.

9. Imperium [-5]

Gunther's 600-day celebration as Intercontinental Champion was interrupted by the arrival of Jey Uso, seemingly setting up the next challenger in his record-breaking reign.

8. Oba Femi [NR]

In a fair rematch for the North American Championship at NXT Vengeance Day, the power of Oba Femi was too much for the former champion Dragon Lee, allowing the Breakout Tournament winner to retain.

7. The Bloodline [-4]

Just when it seemed like we were heading for more Bloodline Civil War at WrestleMania with Roman Reigns vs The Rock, Cody Rhodes' sudden change of heart saw the cousins form an uneasy alliance at the end of the WrestleMania Kickoff Press Conference.

6. The Wolf Dogs [NR]

Thrown together as a makeshift team for the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, The Wolf Dogs have been the real success story of this tournament, and they capped it off by winning the finals over the former Trick Melo Gang.

5. Lyra Valkyria [NR]

Despite Lola Vice cashing in her Breakout Tournament contract to insert herself into the NXT Women's Championship match at Vengeance Day, Lyra Valkyria retained her title over Vice and Roxanne Perez thanks to an assist from Tatum Paxley.

4. Bayley [-3]

Despite not being featured at the WrestleMania Kickoff Press Conference, Bayley was heavily featured on SmackDown, and seemingly regained an ally in her battle against Damage CTRL in Dakota Kai.

3. Ilja Dragunov [NR]

In the main event of Vengeance Day, Ilja Dragunov continued his reign as NXT Champion by overcoming the valiant effort of Trick Williams. Then, on the following Tuesday, Dragunov also defeated Dijak, in part thanks to Joe Gacy and his boxing glove on a stick.

2. Damage CTRL [+4]

In a Raw rematch for the Women's Tag Team Championships, The Kabuki Warriors beat Katana Chance & Kayden Carter to retain their titles. However, Dakota Kai and a steel chair prevented them and Iyo Sky taking out Bayley on SmackDown.

1. Cody Rhodes [+1]

After winning a Bullrope Match on Raw over Shinsuke Nakamura and waking up on the other side of the bed one day, Cody Rhodes arrived at the WrestleMania Kickoff Press Conference to renege on his SmackDown promo and challenge Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at WrestleMania 40.
