After three from WWE and one from TNA in a six-week span, it seems like a miracle, but there was no pro wrestling pay-per-view this past weekend. My wallet is happy. But even without a pay-per-view, there were some important happenings in WWE.
Kane made his return, Damien Sandow cashed in and Daniel Bryan was sent to the hospital. There's more, but the week will be covered in the rankings.
First of all, though, here's how the rankings work:
Holding a championship, being No. 1 contender or having a Money in the Bank briefcase counts for much of a wrestler's ranking. Wins and losses account for much of the week-to-week movement.
Only the top 10 wrestlers are ranked, and every other wrestler is unranked. Wrestlers on the "Watch List" were considered for top-10 status but ultimately were nixed. They, too, are unranked, and their listing is in no particular order.
Generally speaking, the rankings do not break kayfabe, though any major non-storyline information (like serious injury; WWE Wellness Policy violations; legitimate hirings, firings, and contract information; etc.) may be included.
OK, now on to this week's rankings.
