In this week's Power Rankings, there's a lot of the same. Most of the top 10 remained stable, with only one change in the top eight. This week, though, the return of the Big Show, Kane and results from a variety of matches threw the ninth and 10th slots—as well as the Watch List—into chaos. More on that in a minute.
Beforehand, 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.
