WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #490 - The Rock Acknowledges His Tribal Chief | 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. Sami Zayn [NR]

The long losing streak for Sami Zayn was finally broken on Raw, as he reignited his championship hopes for WrestleMania with a victory over Shinsuke Nakamura.

9. Randy Orton [NR]

In a match that could have ended horribly due to a slipped superplex, Randy Orton connected with the RKO to defeat Austin Theory in SmackDown's main event.

8. Becky Lynch [-4]

The number one contender to the Women's World Championship at WrestleMania suffered an unprovoked attack by Nia Jax on Raw. In retaliation, Becky Lynch returned the favor during Jax's match with Liv Morgan, also earning the ire of Morgan as a result.

7. No Quarter Catch Club [NR]

Charlie Dempsey secured his first taste of WWE gold, admittedly a cup rather than a belt. Dempsey defeated Noam Dar on this week's NXT to bring the Heritage Cup to the No Quarter Catch Club.

6. Drew McIntyre [-3]

Similarly to fellow Elimination Chamber victor Becky Lynch, Drew McIntyre didn't have any in-ring action this week. Instead on Raw he had a promo exchange with his WrestleMania opponent Seth Rollins, beginning the path to their World Heavyweight Championship clash.

5. Imperium [+3]

While Gunther is facing a bevy of potential challengers for his Intercontinental Championship, his Imperium cohorts Ludvig Kaiser & Giovanni Vinci earned a big Street Fight victory over The New Day on Raw.

4. Cody Rhodes [+3]

Continuing his quest to finish the story at WrestleMania, Cody Rhodes stepped up the momentum with a win over Grayson Waller in Raw's main event. But following SmackDown, he now has more than Roman Reigns to contend with, after The Rock challenged Rhodes and Seth Rollins to a tag match on WrestleMania Saturday.

3. Tiffany Stratton [+3]

After her standout showing at Elimination Chamber, Tiffany Stratton's star is firmly on the rise, beating the recently returned Naomi in short order on SmackDown.

2. Judgment Day [-1]

Surprisingly there were no matches for any member of Judgment Day on WWE TV this week, with the most notable development for the group being Dominik Mysterio and Damian Priest stepping up to Gunther.

1. Damage CTRL [+1]

Although the match pitting the Kabuki Warriors against Bayley & Dakota Kai technically ended a No Contest, in reality one side clearly came out on top. Kai turning on Bayley and reuniting with her Damage CTRL sisters resulted in a beatdown for Iyo Sky's WrestleMania challenger.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

Raquel Rodriguez - Raw witnessed a straightforward victory for Raquel Rodriguez over the loudmouth Chelsea Green.

The OC - The veterans Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson have dipped down to NXT for a while, and scored their first win of this stint over Edris Enofe & Malik Blade.

Von Wagner - In a battle of losing streaks, Von Wagner emerged with a much-needed win over the increasingly hopeless Lexis King.

Jaida Parker - While she continues to set social media stans ablaze, Jaida Parker picked up her latest win over Gigi Dolin on NXT.

LWO - The long-awaited return of Rey Mysterio helped Carlito pick up the victory in his Street Fight against Santos Escobar on SmackDown.

The Power Rankings Table (since WrestleMania 39)

  1. Judgment Day - 40 weeks (17 weeks at #1)
  2. Seth Rollins - 32 weeks (3 weeks at #1)
  3. Kevin Owens - 25 weeks (5 weeks at #1)
