Another week has come and gone in WWE, and as we drive headlong down the Road to WrestleMania, the final pit-stop is coming into view. WWE Elimination Chamber 2014 is just around the corner. In just two weeks, we'll know which Superstar Batista will face at WrestleMania XXX for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
With the card for Elimination Chamber coming into view, there's a lot to look forward to. The Shield and The Wyatts are gearing up for war. Six men, including fan-favorite Daniel Bryan, will do battle inside the Elimination Chamber for WWE's top prize. And soon, we should find out who will challenge for the Tag Team Championships, the Intercontinental Championship and the Divas Championship.
We'll get into some scenarios in a bit. Before we get into the rankings, here's how they 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. Being "over" with the fans is considered but not heavily weighted in the ranking decisions.
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, these 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 acknowledges them.
