SK WWE Power Rankings: 23rd January 2017
One week away from the Royal Rumble, WWE made some bold decisions on Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live. While the return of Brock Lesnar stood out as the biggest talking point from Raw, SmackDown once again had a distributed amount of success.
AJ Styles going up against Miz was a fresh new touch whereas the reveal of Mickie James and the headlining steel cage match also helped SmackDown receive a good response from the fans
These happenings and bookings happened just a week out from Royal Rumble and that, in turn, makes them more relevant. The Power Rankings also saw some changes due to all the matches that happened and we are going to take a look at them.
#10 Braun Strowman (NR)
The solid run of Braun Strowman ahead of Royal Rumble continued yet again this week as he was part of the six-man tag team match on Monday Night Raw.
It was Braun that got the decisive pin in the match and the teased confrontation that he had with Brock Lesnar earlier that night proved to be another highlight.
WWE is building up Strowman as a big deal ahead of Royal Rumble as he has already teased potential feuds with Undertaker and Lesnar apart from the on-going friction against the likes of Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Sami Zayn.
The good show takes Strowman into the power rankings.
