Is there a pecking order backstage and how is it structured?

Is there a pecking order backstage? And how do you think it is set up? Who is at the top of the totem pole among the wrestlers? What do you think the chain of command looks like? (Not including Brock or Rock since they are kind of celebrity guest stars)

I think it goes in this order:

HHH
Taker
Cena






Big Show
CM Punk
Orton
Sheamus
Del Rio
Jericho
Kane

The rest have no say

What do you guys think?

Not sure about what goes on backstage honestly, but It's common knowledge that Undertaker is the leader of the locker room.

Re: Is there a pecking order backstage and how is it structured?

Pecking order, in my opinion:

Top Tier - Invaluable. Creative freedom granted
  1. Triple H
  2. John Cena
  3. The Rock
  4. The Undertaker
  5. Brock Lesnar
Second Tier - Very important to WWE machine, but not indispensable. Some creative control.
  1. CM Punk
  2. Randy Orton
  3. Kane
  4. Big Show
  5. Chris Jericho
  6. Mark Henry
  7. Sheamus
  8. Alberto Del Rio
  9. Rey Mysterio
  10. The Great Khali

Third Tier - moves up and down on the list on the monthly basis, hence not much. Varying degrees of potential though, or at least productive via 'overness', input or merchandise sales.
  1. Ryback
  2. The Shield (collectively)
  3. Dolph Ziggler
  4. The Miz
  5. Daniel Bryan
  6. Jack Swagger
  7. Kofi Kingston
  8. Wade Barrett
  9. Damien Sandow
  10. Antonio Cesaro
  11. Cody Rhodes
  12. R-Truth
  13. Christian
  14. Sin Cara
  15. Fandango
  16. Big E Langston

Forth Tier - Could be released, but these guys have some value to the WWE. Potential, but not as promising as tier three though.
  1. Zack Ryder
  2. Santino
  3. Brodus Clay
  4. Tensai
  5. Justin Gabriel
  6. Evan Bourne
  7. Alex Riley
  8. Ted DiBiase
  9. Drew McIntyre
  10. Ezekiel Jackson
  11. Jinder Mahal
  12. Heath Slater
  13. David Ottunga
  14. Hunico

Fifth Tier - Can be released at any minute without without any issue arising
  1. Titus O Neil
  2. Darren Young
  3. Tyson Kidd
  4. Michael McGillicutty
  5. Divas (exception of AJ Lee)
  6. Jimmy Uso
  7. Jey Uso
  8. Primo
  9. Epico
  10. JTG
  11. Yoshi Tatsu
  12. Curt Hawkins

I had to check the date of the thread, because Orton is so high on people's lists.

I was thinking the exact same thing. Last I heard he still had some pretty bad heat backstage.

This is pretty accurate, although I think the Prime Time Players and Tyson Kidd belong in the fourth tier since they've been used on a semi-regular basis. Miz, Ziggler, and Bryan belong in the 2nd Tier. Khali should be in the third tier. Ted DiBiase should be in the fifth tier.

I don't think the Great Khali would be in the second tier either.
