Welcome to the all new Daily DDT Weekly Power Rankings! Going forward each and every week, we will rank the best wrestlers in the WWE and see who is hot and not.
1) In-ring performance: This includes not only how well a wrestler worked in the ring, but also (gasp) whether he won or lost. Of course, wins and losses are scripted in professional wrestling, but wins and losses should matter in the universe. A clean win is a big boost to a wrestler, while a dirty win is not going to get a wrestler over nearly as much. As a result, I will be judging guys by their workrate and how they impress me in-ring, but I’ll also be considering how their match results should affect their future situations with their belts and feuds.
2) Mic work: Mic work is another critical aspect of building heat, good or bad, and a wrestler’s promo work definitely factors into how much I enjoy watching his/her feud and storyline. Along with mic work, demeanor and attitude (one might generally call this “acting”) also go a long way to selling a story.
3) “Selling” a story: Finally, anything else that can be done to sell a story or a feud will be considered. There are a lot of ways booking teams and wrestlers can do to continue building heat, and anything that can get a good crowd reaction will be considered.
