With WWE approaching the end of July, it is now time to survey and evaluate who shined the brightest.
When WWE power rankings are prepared, certain criteria must be deployed to provide the most impartial, unparalleled, and meticulous evaluation. The criteria used for this evaluation are as follows: (1) Impact, (2) Relevance, and (3) Accomplishment.
Impact refers to the superstar’s drawing power and influence on the show. Relevance refers to the superstar’s frequent involvement with rivalries on the show. Accomplishment refers to the superstar’s important triumphs or championship victories.
With that being said, it is time to provide WWE Power Rankings for the Raw, SmackDown, and NXT superstars. Before getting to the actual list, it is important to provide some honorable mentions to the superstars who did not make the list.
Honorable Mention (SmackDown): Cesaro and Nakamura
Cesaro and Nakamura became the new SmackDown Tag Team Champions after dethroning The New Day at WWE Extreme Rules 2020. Their reign is off to a good start with minimal backstage exclusive interviews. They plan on using the ‘opera non verba’ technique, in which they let their actions in the ring speak for themselves.
Honorable Mention (NXT): Candice LeRae
Candice LeRae defeated Mia Yim at NXT’s Great American Bash. This victory gave her some much needed momentum on her arduous road to the NXT Women’s Championship, which her former best friend, Io Shirai, currently holds. Her current alliance with her husband, Johnny Gargano, should pay dividends in the months to come.
Honorable Mention (Raw): MVP
MVP, the leader of ‘Hurt Business,’ is not only the self-declared United States Champion but has also elevated the careers of his heel allies, Bobby Lashley and Shelton Benjamin. His current feud with Mustafa Ali and 2 Fly Crew has been entertaining and has helped filled the void in the mid card due to Apollo Crews’ absence from live television.
