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!
- Mr. Nestlemania: 5-3
- J.C.: 6-2
- Guthrie the Ring Announcer: 5-3
- DQ: 7-1
I thought both RAW and SmackDown had huge bounce back weeks and I enjoyed the overall programming. RAW found a way to replace Braun Strowman for at least this week and seems to be off and running towards Extreme Rules. SmackDown I thought had a very strong go home show for BackLash this Sunday.
Tough to be too inspired after this week of wrestling as there seemed to be a lot of filler. RAW had its worst show in weeks and SmackDown did little as we build towards Backlash. There were some strong performances however, so let’s get to the rankings.
I thought Payback way over delivered based on my expectations. The match quality was strong throughout and any time Braun Strowman and Alexa Bliss pick up big wins, JC is a happy man.
Payback is this Sunday for the RAW brand (and some of the SmackDown guys too) with Backlash soon to follow. RAW had its usual ups and downs and SmackDown, per usual, gave us a solid show. Lets get to the rankings!
