Default ESPN now has WWE power rankings

http://espn.go.com/blog/playbook/fan...power-rankings

1. CM Punk
Trending: --
Last week: 1
He calls himself ďThe best in the world,Ē and thatís almost an understatement on how good of a performer CM Punk really is. The two-time and current WWE champion is the perfect heel who drops pipe bombs on the industry to keep fans guessing whatís scripted and whatís flowing straight from the heart.


2. The Rock
Trending: Plus-9
Last week: --
The Rock had every fan in Tampa (including ESPN analyst Jon Gruden) eating out of the palm of his hand Monday night on "Raw," and the interaction between Rock and Punk was both intense and hilarious. Their match at this monthís Royal Rumble is already being built up to be a classic. Letís hope it can live up to the hype.


3. Ryback
Trending: --
Last week: 3
The Big Hungry had the best match of his career on "Raw," an old-fashioned slobberknocker of a TLC match that saw some fun new ladder spots, including a sick-looking gorilla slam with Ryback lifting Punk over his head, then spiking him into the ladder. Enough with the Goldberg chants already; this guy has the goods to leave his own mark.

4. Dolph Ziggler
Trending: Plus-1
Last week: 5
Dolph Ziggler might have lost his match Monday night to John Cena, but he was definitely the star of their encounter. Ziggler is the closest thing Iíve seen to Mr. Perfect, and he makes everyone whom he steps in the ring with look like a million bucks, even if their name isnít Ted DiBiase.

5. The Shield
Trending: Plus-2
Last week: 7
One of the most intriguing new factions WWE has produced in years, as all three of these newcomers have the look and ability to be huge stars in the business. But whom exactly are these guys working for? CM Punk? The Rock? Somebody else? Only time will tell as the male soap opera continues to unfold.


6. Antonio Cesaro
Trending: Plus-3
Last week: 9
When Cesaro lifted the Great Khali and dropped him face-first onto the mat last night, it was one of those moments you knew you were going to see replayed for years to come. This guy has main event written all over him. All he needs is the opportunity.

7. Team Hell No
Trending: Minus-3
Last week: 4
Just when I thought the pair might be getting a bit stale, itís announced that next week Dr. Shelby will be back for another round of therapy. Yes! Yes! Yes!


8. John Cena
Trending: Minus-6
Last week: 2
Whoever is writing John Cenaís lines is really doing the former champ a disservice. We used to get this intense, sarcastic Cena who could spit venom in The Rockís face and come out looking like gold. These days, we get a sixth-grade Cena who seems to have lost his ability to dis opponents with any type of flair. No need to turn him heel if you can just make him cool again.


9. Sheamus
Trending: Plus-1
Last week: 10
The man canít tan, but he sure loves kicking people in the face. He just looks like heís having so much fun out in the ring, and why not? Heís one of the most consistent performers currently on the roster.


10. The Big Show
Trending: Minus-4
Last week: 6
Finished off Kofi Kingston with one punch Monday night in what might have been the quickest match in "Raw" history. Still hoping for a Big Show versus Shaq celebrity match at "WrestleMania."

Don't like the Rock even on the list when he's a part timer.

i get you but whom ever is feuding with the current champ has to be #2, as he is the next possible champ.

Idk what's so good about Ryback that he'll leave his own mark. All he has is looks, no mic skills or ability in the ring. he has been pushed perfectly and is made to look like a million bucks though. So I see why he is so high.
Decent list though just surprising because ive never seen anything wrestling related on espn.

After last week, if you still think he has no ring skill, you're either just a Ryback hater or have no clue about wrestling.

lol, sorta surprised Coach or Grisham isn't running that power rankings.

But cool to see ESPN having this for WWE. Would be cool to see WWE on ESPN on day, but it won't happen(though ESPN is owned by Disney, and Disney probably loves the stuff WWE is doing...)
