WWE: A Ranking of Every Talent on the Main Level Roster Right Now

1 of 32

    Drew Hallowell/Getty Images

    I've been sitting on this slideshow idea for a month now, wondering how I could possibly rate every WWE superstar without having someone come and kill me for their favorite being too low. This is based on a point system (and does not count 3/7 Raw.) Also because of lack of interest I will not be doing NXT, merely Raw and Smackdown.

    The point system is as following:

    • 1 point for a loss on TV=
    • 1 point for a no contest=
    • 2 points for a win on TV=
    • 2 points for a loss on PPV=
    • 3 Points for a win on PPV=
    • 5 Points for Royal Rumble and Elmination Chamber=
    • 4 Points for major Championship wins or defenses.=
    • 2 points for minor, tag team and diva title wins or replacements=
    • 1/3 of a point for each Royal Rumble Elimination=
    • 1/2 of a point for each Elimination Chamber elimination=
    • 2 Points for an appearance in Elimination Chamber=

    *A match can be counted twice, for instance if Edge wins the elimination chamber in a title defense on Pay Per View and eliminates three men that equals 13 points.

     

    Unfortunately, I cannot include The Rock, Undertaker, or Triple H seeing as they have not competed. And in the interest of saving space, I shall group everyone who is inactive into 1 slide. (not counting kayfabe firings.)

Men Who Didn't Make the Cut (were Inactive) Tie for 56th Place

2 of 32
    • Darren Young
    • The Undertaker
    • Triple H
    • Yoshi Tatsu
    • Michael Tarver
    • David Hart Smith
    • Skip Sheffield
    • Zack Ryder
    • Tyler Reks
    • Primo Colon
    • Chris Masters
    • Curt Hawkins
    • Goldust
    • Christian

     

    While it pains me to put Undertaker and Triple H on the same slide as NXT Rookies, none of these men had any matches so far this year. Here is a video of The Undertaker and Triple H. Enjoy

Tie 54th Place: Ezekiel Jackson Great Khali

3 of 32

    Neither man did much, both only getting 1 elimination in the Royal Rumble. However, I daresay That Jackson's future is brighter than Khali's

Tie 51st Place: William Regal, Tyson Kidd, Kaitlyn, Chavo

4 of 32

    Did anyone realize/care that Kaitlin had a match this month? With that being said Kidd Chavo and Regal deserve better than this. What happened to Jackson Andrews? all of these are superb wrestlers

50th Place: Mason Ryan

5 of 32

    Having just made his debut and being a lackey for CM Punk, we as the IWC have not been able to see what exactly Mason Ryan is made of.

    • 1 point for a no contest=
    • 2 points for a win on TV=

49Th Place: Melina

6 of 32

    What happened to Melina? She used to be one of the greatest worker, and loved by the fans, now we never see her. I bet she could add some life to the division.

Tie 46th Place: Evan Bourne, Rosa Mendes, Tamina

7 of 32

    Evan has been injured, and has a chance to make a much greater impact, with that being said I cannot think of 2 good qualities about Tamina and Rosa.

45th Place; David Otunga

Tie: 29Th Place: Kelly Kelly, Natayla

11 of 32

    Both of these divas are very popular with the fans. Kelly Kelly has one of the only real storylines now. Natalya however has lost her title and has no real direction as of now.

    Once again, another of Punk's lackeys. I like his wrestling style, he just seems boring on the stick.

24th Place: Daniel Bryan

15 of 32

    I feel that Bryan isn't being used properly. If he could drop the ladies and go about his business, I feel he could be more successful

Tie 20th Place: Dolph Ziggler, Santino, Kozlov, Michelle McCool

16 of 32

    I honestly wish I didn't see Santino and Kozlov anymore. McCool didn't sleep her way to the top. She won her first divas title in 2008, before she married the Undertaker. I'm also surprised at how low Ziggler is. But, he didn't participate in the Elimination Chamber and lost almost every match.

Tie 18th Place: Layla and Wade Barrett

17 of 32

    Wow. i thought Wade Barrett would've been treated much better than this. Most of his losses have been countouts or disqualifications. And Layla... she and Michelle need to split.

Tie: 16th Place: Big Show and Sheamus

18 of 32

    Both men deserve better than this. Big Show should be the monster heel who puts over the younger deserving talent when he loses. Sheamus should be the monster heel who can't seem to lose. Thanks to Kevin Dunn however Sheamus is wasting away.

    Kane seems to be lacking direction again, destroying the likes of Chavo and JTG yet doing nothing for himself. Its time for him to be done, he had his last run.

    Eve has the honor of being the highest placing diva. Heath is this high because of his multiple title wins this year so far.

    I am surprised Punk is this low. He has wowed us this month with wins, yet has not won a title. he wows us with promos and shocking tactics, not always with victories

9Th Place: John Morrison

23 of 32

    If this was Sportscenter's top 10, Morrison would be number 1. With his high flying antics and unbelievable moves he has wowed us all. But, he has not won a title nor has he won every match he participated in.

    The Miz has surprised many as well, I thought this was merely transition to switch the title from Orton to Cena come Wrestlemania. But, he has improved dramatically. I am eager to see where it goes.

    Everyone please take this into consideration. This is 31 slides long. I also spent several hours researching the past 9 Raws, Smackdowns, 2 Pay Per Views. Royal Rumble is the most problematic because I had to figure out how many eliminations by each wrestler. There were a total of 70 wrestlers to figure out... It was hard. I spent hours in Excel as well. So enjoy but be kind... please.
