The balance of power wasn't shaken up too much at WWE Night of Champions 2012 as WWE Champion CM Punk and World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus retained their respective titles. But there is plenty worth talking about during the aftermath of Sunday's pay-per-view and Monday's edition of Raw.
Night of Champions certainly didn't live up to my expectations, but several stars shined during the event and their new standing in this week's power rankings will reflect that. Night of Champions most definitely suffered from a lack of build, but that didn't stop some wrestlers from putting forth their best effort.
On top of that, Raw was chock full of matches this week and there is no question that some superstars helped themselves, while others fell further down the pecking order. As bigger events like Survivor Series, and even Royal Rumble, approach over the next few months, things figure to change even more moving forward.
Here are my Top 25 superstar power rankings for the week beginning on Sept. 16 based purely on entertainment value and not kayfabe results.
