Welcome to the WWE Raw Rankings by Inside Pulse Wrestling.
In these rankings we take the top 10 contenders for the WWE Universal Championship, and Top 5 for each the Raw Woman’s Championship, Raw Tag Team Championship, and WWE Cruiserweight Championship. In the rankings we take 3 major factors into account:
-Win/Loss over the past month
-Amount of TV Time dedicated to a particular character and/or storyline
-Logical storyline progression
A new ranking report will be released after the first Raw after a Pay-Per-View event.
WWE Universal Champion – Kevin Owens
1) Roman Reigns
2) Seth Rollins
3) Chris Jericho
5) Braun Stroman
6) Sami Zayn
8) Bo Dallas
9) Titus O’Neil
10) Mark Henry
Roman Reigns has come out of the Hell in a Cell PPV hot, and has made it known he wants Kevin Owen’s Universal Championship. Seth Rollins stays in the picture, despite losing 3 WWE Universal Championship matches in a row on PPV. Chris Jericho seems to be targeting Reigns’s US Championship, but with the Survivor Series team being filled by the top of the card, the whole WWE Universal Championship picture is a bit blurry.
Raw Tag Team Champions – The New Day
1) Sheamus & Cesaro
2) Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson
3) Enzo Amore & Big Cass
4) The Golden Truth
5) Shining Stars
The New Day lose at Hell in a Cell, but via DQ. Sheamus & Cesaro should get a rematch for the title down the road, however it looks as if The New Day will captain the majority of these teams going into Survivor Series. Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson seem to be back on their winning ways as a team, but they continue to have issues with Enzo & Big Cass.
Raw Woman’s Champion – Charlotte Flair
1) Sasha Banks
3) Nia Jax
4) Dana Brooke
5) Alicia Fox
After Charlotte regained the Raw Woman’s Championship, the clear #1 contender should be Sasha Banks for her contractual rematch. However there is a bit of uncertainty around this with Banks not appearing on TV after Hell in a Cell. Bayley continued her winning ways at Hell in a Cell, but ran into a brick wall in Nia Jax.
WWE Cruiserweight Champion – The Brian Kendrick
1) TJ Perkins
2) Rick Swann
3) Cedric Alexander
4) Lince Dorado
5) Tony Nese
The Brian Kendrick over threw TJ Perkins atop of the division at Hell in a Cell, and even though Perkins’ contractually obliged rematch already happened, the shenanigans that ensued keeps him at #1. Rich Swann pinned Kendrick a few weeks ago on Raw, which slides him in at #2.
