Inside Pulse Wrestilng’s WWE Raw Rankings 05.02.17

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 – Brock Lesnar (since 04.02.17)
1. Braun Strowman
2. Seth Rollins
3. Bray Wyatt
4. Roman Reigns
5. Dean Ambrose (Intercontinental Champion since 01.03.17)
6. The Miz
7. Finn Balor
8. Samoa Joe
9. Apollo Crews
10. Big Show

Strowman & Reigns continue to destroy each other, and it seems pretty clear that the winner of this feud will go after Brock next. Rollins win over Joe, plus calling out the Beast keeps him in the title picture as well. Wyatt is coming off the big House of Horrors win, but may just be fodder for Balor’s first real feud back.

WWE Raw Woman’s Championship – Alexa Bliss (since 04.30.17)
1. Bayley
2. Sasha Banks
3. Nia Jax
4. Mickie James
5. Dana Brooke

Alexa seems hot after the Superstar Shake-Up, but Bayley is owed a contractual rematch at this point. The rest of the division seems to be floundering away.

WWE Raw Tag Team Championship – The Hardy Boyz (since 04.02.17)
1. Sheamus & Cesaro
2. Enzo Amore & Big Cass
3. Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows
4. Rhyno & Heath Slater
5. The Golden Truth

Sheamus & Cesaro’s attitude change adds a fresh twist on the entire Tag Division. Hopefully The Club & Enzo/Cass wrap up their long running & pointless program soon enough. There will be a Tag Team Turmoil match this upcoming week, which will jumble up this rankings for sure.

WWE Cruiserweight Championship – Neville (since 01.29.17)
1. Austin Aries
2. Akira Tozawa
3. Rich Swann
4. Jack Galllagher
5. The Brian Kendrick

Will Aries’s third shot at Neville be the charm? Tozawa should come out of the program with Kendrick with his eyes on the prize any time now

The next WWE Raw Rankings will be after Extreme Rules, and it it sure to be shaken up quite a bit in that time!
