Wow, what a WrestleMania.  Obviously, Undertaker losing to Brock Lesnar has dominated the discussions.  And Undertaker's loss took everyone by surprise.  

But there's plenty more to discuss coming out of WrestleMania XXX.  John Cena defended his legacy after defeating Bray Wyatt.  AJ Lee defeated the entire Divas division to retain her Divas title.  And of course, there was the main event.  Daniel Bryan finally overcame The Authority and won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

We'll get into all that and more 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.
