*In this monthly feature, the Pulse Wrestling editorial board ranks the heavyweight, women, and tag team divisions on World Wrestling Entertainment’s RAW & SmackDown brands. Rankings include the top ten heavyweights on each brand, top 5 tag teams on each brand, top 5 Women’s/Diva’s in each brand, and include everyone listed on WWE.com’s RAW & SmackDown 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)

WWE: NXT rankings will also take the above into consideration, as there is no Champion on the show.

Due to the Unification of the WWE & World Tag Team Titles, the Champions can defend the titles against any team across all 3 brands. The Titles belong to RAW, according to WWE.com, however Smackdown teams can appear in their rankings, and will be in blue type. Also, a member of the Unified Tag Team Champions can challenge any Champion on any brand, a precedent established with Big Show in November 2009.

**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.
