The week after WWE Elimination Chamber 2014 was certainly eventful. Undertaker and Brock Lesnar returned, Batista told the WWE Universe what he really thought, and Daniel Bryan finally challenged Triple H to a match.
We also saw the first NXT Arrival air live on the WWE Network. While some people had technical issues watching the show, it was an excellent way to introduce what I believe was WWE's best show of the week. But that's neither here nor there.
Before we get into this week's 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. If a wrestler is tied with another, any of the listed scenarios will break the tie.
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, contract information, "sabbaticals", etc.) may be taken into consideration. No spoilers are included unless WWE acknowledges them.
All WWE shows, televised or digitally distributed, as well as anything from WWE.com, the WWE App, the WWE Network and any WWE or Superstar social media account that does not break kayfabe is taken into consideration.
