WWE RAW: Welcome to the Division Power Rankings for the London show.

These are the power rankings for each division on Monday Night RAW for this following week. Each division would be ranked based on storyline progression and win/loss record as of 2017. Also, each division would be divided by contenders and pretenders, to differentiate the challengers in their respective division. I’ll also highlight a specific superstar in each division and explain their ranking based on their actions. Win/Loss record is provided by CageMatch.Net.

Each superstar or tag team can move up or down the rankings based on victory, defeat or storyline progression. Let’s see how the rankings shape up this week.

The RAW Cruiserweight Division

Highlights of the Division

The unlikely alliance between Neville and TJP centered around a future title shot has created a necessary logjam in the division. Since Payback, nothing has been resolved as who would be challenging Neville for the Cruiserweight Championship.

The obvious choice would have to be Austin Aries since he did earn a disqualification victory against Neville at Payback. A trilogy bout between both men must happen in order to uplift the chaos surrounding the top-tier of the division. Aries has to be the champion to give the other contenders a shot at the title instead of floating around in limbo. 

Meanwhile, in the Rest of the Division

TJP defeated Jack Gallagher for the third time in a span of a month but it hasn’t gotten him any close to the top of the Cruiserweight rankings. He still touts more losses than wins this year and he hasn’t gotten any favors with his 50/50 booking. Last week on RAW, he lost to Aries and on 205 Live he defeated the worst cruiserweight in the division, Lince Dorado. Have him defeat other contenders to justify a warranted title shot over Austin Aries cause nobody will buy his recent push as Neville’s lackey.     

Gran Metalik must be given an opportunity to showcase his skills on RAW or 205 Live sooner rather than later. It’s a shame that he’s been the only contender to not compete on the main shows since he was the runner-up in the Cruiserweight Classic. Guys like Noam Dar are scoring huge victories over former champions like Rich Swann and Gran Metalik is competing on WWE Main Event against Ariya Daivari? He might rack up wins against pretenders on a B-Level show but he won’t get the opportunities that his fellow title contenders have experienced for months now. It must be addressed very soon.

These are the rankings for the division this week.
