WWE Power Rankings: March 1, 2014
After a historic week at the WWE which saw the launch of the Network and return of the WWE, the weekly Power Rankings published by WWE.com and Academy of Wrestling Arts & Sciences (AWAS),saw its fair share of dips and rises.
Undertaker’s return was arguably the biggest talking point in a week which also saw Batista showing signs of a heel turn. The internal turmoil among the Shield also was at its epitome as the creepy guys took out John Cena.
Daniel Bryan dispatched Kane and opened up the door for a clash against Triple H. In the mid card, Christian and Sheamus seemed working on some kind of feud which capped a great match at Raw where both men showed immense chemistry.
So let’s take a look at how all this shaped up this week’s Power Rankings and where each superstar ended up.
25 – Emma (Previous Rank-Nil)
Emma danced her way into the ring and kicked off her main roster career with a win. Though it wasn’t anywhere near her performances in the NXT, a win against Summer Rae is a good start. Surely a lot awaits Emma as she makes it to the Power Rankings as well.
24 – Mark Henry (Previous Rank- 23)
Henry had an awful week this time around as well as he found himself in the wrong end of a tag team match at SmackDown. Being the one who was pinned in the four men bout also lowers his credibility and Henry drops one place as a result.
23 – Darren Young (Previous Rank-22)
Young failed to get the job done against Titus O’Neil at Elimination Chamber but made up for his with a win at Main Event. There is no other credible feud left for Titus in the roster as well and the Elimination Chamber might be the last PPV time he’s going to get for a long time.
22 – Christian (Previous Rank-21)
Arguably one the star performers of last week, Christian dazzled in his new role at both Elimination Chamber and Raw. But Captain Charisma didn’t convert those great performances into wins and that eventually costs him one place in the rankings.
21 – The Miz (Previous Rank-20)
It wasn’t an active week for The Awesome one in terms of in ring action but his personal life had a lot buzz since he tied the knot with former WWE diva Maryse. He drops one place and out of the top 20 but would be trying to come back into relevance before WrestleMania.
