8. MVP is the locker room leader on WWE Raw

MVP is the genius pulling the strings on Monday nights. He has created the greatest faction on the Red Brand and is dominating the show week in and week out. The Hurt Business do exactly what they say they are going to do. They pick up gold, they churn out a profit, and they take care of business. The understanding among Bobby Lashley, MVP, and Shelton Benjamin is just unbeatable. And Cedric Alexander seems to be picking things up.

There are few wrestlers in the world who are as good on the mic as MVP. He can get anyone over, and he can put anyone over. I can’t think of a more ideal heel you’d want in a veteran wrestler. The man can still go in the ring, but his savvy and unselfishness make him an even bigger asset to WWE.

7. Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax, WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions

While Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax are not able to compete right now, they are still one of the top wrestlers on WWE Raw as a tag team. It’s been wonderful to watch them come together, begrudgingly, and morph into an absolute force as a tag team. They both fit so well together as characters and in the ring.

Jax and Baszler are destined to lose those tag titles to Liv Morgan and Ruby Riott, but I am here for more build and more storyline twists on the road to Morgan and Riott getting that big moment together with their first title victory in WWE.
