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. Samoa Joe (8)
2. Roman Reigns (4)
3. Seth Rollins (2)
4. Finn Balor (7)
5. Bray Wyatt (3)
6. The Miz (6) (Intercontinental Champion since 06.04.17)
7. Dean Ambrose (5)
8. Kalisto (NR)
9. Apollo Crews (9)
10. Big Show (10)
Joe claims the #1 contendership coming out of Extreme Rules. The other 4 in the main even fall in line behind him. Miz picks up another IC Title reign, but it is cloudy at the top. Kalisto debuts after picking up wins over Apollo & Titus.
WWE Raw Woman’s Championship – Alexa Bliss (since 04.30.17)
1. Nia Jax (3)
2. Sasha Banks (2)
3. Bayley (1)
4. Alicia Fox (NR)
5. Mickie James (4)
Alexa continues her winning ways since the SuperStar Shake-Up. Nia got cheated out of her opportunity on Raw, so look for her to get a rematch soon!
WWE Raw Tag Team Championship – Sheamus & Cesaro (since 06.04.17)
1. The Hardy Boyz (Champs)
2. Enzo Amore & Big Cass (2)
3. Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows (3)
4. Rhyno & Heath Slater (4)
5. Curt Hawkins & Bo Dallas (NR)
With Sheamus & Cesaro regaining the Championships, The Hardy Boyz are due a rematch, that they will surely get soon enough. Enzo & Cass keep their spot, because Cass is not out of action for an extended amount of time. The rest of the division is stagnate, I imagine things will pick up when The Revival return soon.
WWE Cruiserweight Championship – Neville (since 01.29.17)
1. TJP (NR)
2. Rich Swann (3)
3. Akira Tozawa (2)
4. Austin Aries (1)
5. Drew Gulak (NR)
TJP is in line for a title match tonight on 205 Live, but with Tozawa & Swann both finishing up storylines with The Brian Kendrick & Noam Dar (respectively), they should be next in line.
The next WWE Raw Rankings will be after Great Balls of Fire, and maybe we will see a brand new Universal Champion!
