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 & 205 Live after a Pay-Per-View event.
WWE Universal Championship – Brock Lesnar (since 04.02.17)
1. Roman Reigns (2)
2. Samoa Joe (1)
3. Braun Strowman (NR)
4. Bray Wyatt (5)
5. The Miz (6) (Intercontinental Champion since 06.04.17)
6. Seth Rollins (3)
7. Big Cass (NR)
8. Finn Balor (4)
9. Dean Ambrose (7)
10. Elias Samson (NR)
Roman & Joe have a #1 Contender Match next week on Raw. Braun should be the clear #1, but with him missing this weeks Raw, his status is questionable. Wyatt has sneaked up a bit, and has been winning consistently. Big Cass debuts on the Top 10 after beating down Enzo. Ambrose & Balor continues to fall.
WWE Raw Woman’s Championship – Alexa Bliss (since 04.30.17)
1. Sasha Banks (2)
2. Nia Jax (1)
3. Bayley (3)
4. Mickie James (5)
5. Emma (NR)
Sasha got cheated out of her Championship Match at Great Balls of Fire, but the top is a bit cluttered with Nia & Bayley. All fingers are pointing to a Fatal 4-Way at SummerSlam!
WWE Raw Tag Team Championship – Sheamus & Cesaro (since 06.04.17)
1. Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows (3)
2. The Hardy Boyz (1)
3. The Revival (NR)
4. Rhyno & Heath Slater (4)
5. Apollo Crews & Titus O’Neill (NR)
The Bar continue to dominate, and it looks like the Hardyz look like they will fall a few pegs down. The Revivals return will fill a spot left by the split Enzo & Cass. Titus Worldwide makes their debut on the rankings, nearly edging out the newly formed Miztourage!
WWE Cruiserweight Championship – Neville (since 01.29.17)
1. Akira Tozawa (3)
2. Cedric Alexander (NR)
3. Rich Swann (2)
4. TJP (1)
5. Jack Gallahger (NR)
Cedric wins a big I Quit Match on 205 Live this week, and should be the next in line to get a shot at Neville. Akira has a legitimate gripe however, and it looks like he will be getting a rematch. Swann keeps picking up wins, even with TJP hot on his heels.
The next Raw Rankings will be posted right after 205 Live the Tuesday after SummerSlam!
