    Chris Masters is the wrestler who has the best week since he won two matches. Santino Marella came close to topping the table for Week #3 as he and Valdimir Kozlov successfuly defended the Tag Team Championship.

    This week also saw John Cena and CM Punk's first match of 2011. The cheap DQ victory allowed Punk to capture a modest amount of points for the main event of Raw and leave Cena hanging around with nothing.

    * Edge Has Reached His 30th Day as World Heavyweight Champion (+5)

    ** Miz Has Reached His 60th Day as WWE Champion (+5)

    *** Natalya Has Reached Her 60th Day as Diva's Champion (+3)

    **** Daniel Bryan has Reached His 120th Day as United States Champion (+4)

    For another week Kofi's position is secure but his loss to Jack Swagger has made it easier for those just below him to steal the spot next week.

    With the Royal Rumble being included into Week no. 4 (so expect the results a little later than usual) there could be some major changes at the top. For now, I'm most impressed with Chris Masters and Yoshi tatsu who have climbed continuously due to good showings on Superstars.
