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 May 17.
Jinder Mahal may be having a good week, but Heath Slater, who lost to El Torito on SmackDown, and Drew McIntyre, who fell in defeat against Sin Cara on "WWE Superstars," can’t say the same.
Jack Swagger ran into an extreme obstacle this week in the form of Rob Van Dam, the ECW Original who defeated Zeb Colter’s prized pupil in singles competition on Raw.
When is a loss a win in WWE? Maybe Fandango has the answer, seeing as how the ballroom brawler turned the agony of defeat against Dolph Ziggler on Raw into a moment to profess his love for Layla.
Cody Rhodes did what he felt it took to win against Damien Sandow on Raw, much to the chagrin of Goldust. The Rhodes brothers can’t say the same for their tag team loss to The Usos on SmackDown.
The World’s Largest Athlete somehow managed to keep a low profile in the WWE Universe this week. It may seem difficult to keep a 7-foot Superstar out of sight, but, apparently, it’s not impossible.
