We've arrived on the doorstep of the biggest event in pro wrestling: WrestleMania XXX.  And outside of a few minor details, we now know what the bulk of the card will look like.  As Sunday approaches, we'll see each WWE Superstar make their final push. Who's going to build momentum heading into WrestleMania?

We're also about to see whether or not WWE's model for future pay-per-view events will be successful.  After all, this will be the first pay-per-view in WWE history to be broadcast live on the WWE Network.  Will the stream hold up to the demand?

More on all that and other stories in the following slides.  But before we get into the rankings, here's how they work.

Holding a championship, being No. 1 contender or holding a Money in the Bank briefcase counts for much of a wrestler's ranking.  If a wrestler is tied with another wrestler, 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. Pay-per-view performance takes on added importance.

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 accounts that don't break kayfabe may be taken into consideration.
