    *In this monthly feature, the Pulse Wrestling editorial board ranks the heavyweight, women/cruiserweight, and tag team divisions on World Wrestling Entertainment’s RAW, SmackDown, ECW brands. Rankings include the top ten heavyweights, top 5 women (RAW), top 5 cruiserweights (SD), and top 5 tag teams on each brand, and include everyone listed on WWE.com’s RAW, SmackDown, & ECW Superstars pages, plus regular, unlisted competitors from each brand.

    These rankings take into account (in order):
    – Current title status**
    – Declared and presumed storyline rankings
    – Recent victories and quality of opponents
    – Quality of matches (psychology, workrate, and entertainment value)
    – Quality of TV exposure (length, placement during show, and crowd response)

    **Both primary and secondary heavyweight champions are listed at the top of each brand’s rankings, with the assumption that Intercontinental or United States Champions are de facto top contenders unless otherwise stated on television or online by WWE.
