#3 Drew McIntyre
Drew McIntyre punished Dolph Ziggler brutally to win the steel cage match in this week’s RAW. The match was thoroughly one-sided where Ziggler’s speed and tenacity were second to McIntyre’s core strength. And if that was not enough, McIntyre returned to the cage with a steel chair after the match when Ziggler refused to back own. He delivered 2 more Claymore on Ziggler using steel cage and chair and announced his entry for Royal Rumble. he is at no 3 in Power Ranking.

At no 2 is AJ Styles or to say the Real AJ Styles. AJ Styles refused to apologize to MrIt’s McMahon for attacking him last week and promised to unleash the Real AJ Styles.

Twice in the match, he took out all the other superstars Randy Orton, Samoa Joe, Rey Mysterio
#1 Becky Lynch
This week at SmackDown, The Man Becky Lynch stood up to John Cena to stake her claim as the next big WWE superstar. Then he participated in a Mixed Tag Team Match with Cena to take on Andreas Almas and Zelina Vega. In the dying minutes of the match, she threw Cena out of the ring when he was about to pin Almas and forced Vega to tap out to win the match. Becky did not stop there. After the match, when Cena put his hand forward for the handshake, she taunted Cena by his ‘You can see me gesture’. Also, she put her name forward for the SmackDown Women’s Championship match at Royal Rumble. She is the no 1 superstar for this week’s power ranking.
