Squared Circle: WWE League: Week #2

1 of 7

    Last week saw Kofi Kingston become the first person to top Squared Circle's WWE League. Will the Intercontinental Champion do the same for the second time in a row?

    Or more importantly, will he manage to maintain the top spot, which is being defended from the likes of Alberto Del Rio and Dolph Ziggler?

    If you're new to the WWE League ranking system, you can find the rules here.

    Without any more wait, let's see how this week's programming turned out.

    This week, thanks to some good showings in tag team contests, the top spot is shared by three individuals. "The World's Strongest Man" Mark Henry, WWE Hall of Famer Jerry "The King" Lawler and Rey Mysterio equally had the best week.

    Thanks to an eight-man tag on WWE Superstars the lack of actual matches this week (each show had one less than the preceding show) does not affect the amount of competitors in action this week.

    Kofi Kingston remains in control overall as he picked up yet another win following last week's title victory and quick defense. This allows him to stay ahead of the rising Alberto Del Rio who he shares the most victories with so far.

    The World Champions did not have much of a gain either this week, since Miz lost his tag team contest and Edge failed to compete.

    Hopefully, next week will see more match take place in comparison to this week, as every show seemed short on action.
