We're less than a week from WWE Royal Rumble 2014, and there are still a number of questions yet to be answered. Who, if anyone, will get a Tag Team title shot? Will Daniel Bryan face Bray Wyatt? Will Bryan be medically cleared for the Rumble at all? Will Dean Ambrose have to defend the near-invisible United States title?
With just six days until one of the most important pay-per-views on the WWE calendar, who can set themselves apart this week?
First, 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. "Getting the better" of someone—like beating someone down—as well as "getting got," counts as well, though not as much as wins and losses.
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 (serious injury, WWE Wellness Policy violations, legitimate hirings, firings and contract information, etc.) may be included. No spoilers are included unless WWE itself acknowledges them.
