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 Championship – Kevin Owens (since 08.29.16)
1. Roman Reigns (1) (United States Champion since 09.25.16)
2. Seth Rollins (2)
3. Chris Jericho (3)
4. Braun Strowman (5)
5. Sami Zayn (6)
6. Rusev (4)
7. Bo Dallas (8)
8. Titus O’Neil (9)
9. Neville (7)
10. Curtis Axel (NR)
After KO’s win on Raw this week, he now turns his full attention to Roman Reigns at Roadblock, but there is no doubt that Jericho’s interference will keep Rollins at the #2 spot. The rest of the Raw Men’s Survivor Series team rounds out the top of the rankings, while Sami Zayn & Rusev fall behind due to losing to The Miz & not even being on the Survivor Series card (respectively). Goldberg & Brock Lesnar are currently not listed due to being part time, and being storyline inactive (until at least the Royal Rumble in Goldberg’s case).
WWE Raw Woman’s Championship – Charlotte Flair (since 10.30.16)
1. Sasha Banks (1)
2. Bayley (2)
3. Nia Jax (3)
4. Alicia Fox (5)
5. Dana Brooke (4)
Sasha Banks will finally get her rematch from Hell in a Cell on next week’s Raw. Bayley get’s the #2 spot due to being a survivor alongside Charlotte.
WWE Raw Tag Team Championship – The New Day (since 08.23.15)
1. Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows (2)
2. Sheamus & Cesaro (1)
3. Enzo Amore & Big Cass (3)
4. The Shining Stars (5)
5. The Golden Truth (4)
The Club beat The Golden Truth on Raw this week to earn a title match next week. Sheamus & Cesaro stay towards the top of the card due to losing their title match this week via sketchy circumstances.
WWE Cruiserweight Championship – The Brian Kendrick (since 10.30.16)
1. Rich Swann (2)
2. Noam Dar (NR)
3. TJ Perkins (1)
4. Cedric Alexander (3)
5. Sin Cara (NR)
Rich Swann will get the Title shot on the inaugural edition of 205 Live next week, and TJ Perkins & Noam Dar fall in line behind him. For those looking for Kalisto, he is officially part of the SmackDown Live roster, and will not appear on the Cruiserweight Rankings, unless he is allowed to compete on 205 Live.
Be sure to check out the next WWE Raw rankings on the Tuesday after Roadblock, and stay tuned for Smackdown Live Rankings tomorrow, and NXT Rankings on Thursday!
