WWE.com, in conjunction with the Academy of Wrestling Arts & Sciences (AWAS), ranks the Top 25 Superstars in WWE each week with Power Rankings. The rankings are based on victories, quality of opponents, momentum and overall in-ring dominance, as well as intangibles. Be sure to check back every Saturday for the latest Power Rankings. Here are the rankings for August 23.
The Miz's Hollywood moment at SummerSlam was anything but awesome, considering it ended in defeat and with Dolph Ziggler in possession of the Intercontinental Championship.
Natalya capitalized on the ongoing shenanigans between AJ Lee and Divas Champion Paige in order to claim a pair of victories against the latter on Raw and SmackDown.
Heath Slater’s projections for “Slater and the Gator” continue to exceed reality, especially after he & Titus O’Neil wound up on the wrong end of a loss to Hornswoggle & El Torito on “WWE Superstars.”
Stephanie McMahon needed the shocking actions of Nikki Bella to get the job done, but her successful SummerSlam return taught Brie Bella an important lesson: Don’t ever cross the boss.
The ECW Original put on a clinic in winning efforts on SummerSlam Kickoff 2014 and Raw, though he probably was in no condition to celebrate after his count-out win over Randy Orton on SmackDown.
