A lot has transpired since the last edition of JC’s Power Rankings over a month ago, which means a lot of big changes in the ranks. New champions, new debuts, and some old faces making new impacts across the landscape of WWE. Great Balls of Fire was the best overall PPV of the year and the outcomes of that event made a big impact in how I view the superstars on RAW. Lets check out the ranks!
Wrestlemania. . .
It’s Nestlemania’s Christmas. It’s the showcase of the immortals. It’s the ultimate thrill ride.
This year I had the chance to live it, and it was truly everything I could have imagined. . . and more.
WrestleMania has come and gone and man what a weekend it was. I thought overall the entire show was very good and the Raw and SmackDown that followed the next two nights were fantastic. It will be hard to fit everyone in the rankings this week, but that does not mean I did not love their performances or debuts.
RAW had some strong segments, but it was the blue brand which won the week. The first hour plus of SmackDown Live was fantastic storytelling and wrestling. The last few segments were mostly misses in my book, but overall the show was very strong two weeks away from WrestleMania.
Elimination Chamber crowned two new champions on Sunday in Bray Wyatt and Naomi. RAW also crowned a new champion in Bayley in what continued a big week in WWE. RAW was fast-paced and had multiple extremely entertaining segments most notably the Festival of Friendship. SmackDown had a phenomenal main event for the WWE championship as well.

That being said, the Elimination Chamber match is usually always entertaining and I can get excited for that. Continue reading JC’S Weekly Top 20 Power RANKINGS (02/08/17)
The Royal Rumble has come and gone as the first peg in WrestleMania season is now behind us. Randy Orton won the Royal Rumble and will now “main event” WrestleMania. John Cena tied Ric Flair’s 16-time world championship reigns and Kevin Owens successfully defended his Universal Title. Neville and The Club also won their first championships in WWE and are now poised to control their respective divisions. Also a quick note, the three members of the Wyatt Family will once again be ranked separately.
