WWE Power Rankings 4/14/2014: Post-WrestleMania XXX Edition

What an emotional ride the past week has been for pro wrestling fans.  After a fantastic WrestleMania XXX, WWE started their year anew with a solid Raw that featured Ultimate Warrior for the first (and sadly the last) time since the 1990s.  In less than 24 hours, he had passed away.  

Ultimate Warrior fans can only be grateful they got to see him one last time in the squared circle before he departed this world.  Tonight's WWE Raw will be dedicated to him.  In keeping with that theme, the Watch List will feature Warrior's final promo on Raw, and these rankings are dedicated to him.

But while Warrior's passing has fallen like a fog over the wrestling world, it was actually a very eventful week.  More on that in the following slides.  

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.  Wrestlers on the "Watch List" were considered for top-10 status but were ultimately 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.
