WWE Superstar Power Rankings for 12/22/2014: Christmas Edition
December 22, 2014 - WWE
The fallout from TLC 2014 looks to be scheming a WWE Universe for 2015 Royal Rumble, a subsequent pay-per-view on a docket, and in a suggestion of Christmas, a penultimate WWE Superstar Power Rankings essay of a year has gifts for some WWE Superstars and lumps of spark for others.
Dolph Ziggler still binds a No. 1 spot, yet there are a series of changes in this week’s rankings. This past week, we distinguished SmackDown’s 800th episode, had Y2J Chris Jericho as a special guest ubiquitous manager and even saw Brock Lesnar for a initial time in new memory.
We’re also saying a setup to a feuds that will certainly play out during a Royal Rumble. Can Ryback reason his possess with Rusev? When will Luke Harper get his rematch for a Intercontinental Championship? We could get answers to these questions and some-more this week.
Also, an critical note about Tribute to a Troops. For a functions of these rankings, it was deliberate a unchanging uncover like Raw, SmackDown, Main Event, and Superstars. Yes, it was filmed progressing in a month, yet it falls within a atmosphere dates deliberate for a rankings. The matches were also generally within storyline, so they count here.
We’ll get into all this past week’s transformation in a following slides. But before we pierce on, please review how these rankings work.
Holding a championship, being a No. 1 contender or holding a Money in a Bank briefcase depends for many of a wrestler’s ranking, and these honors are therefore a many heavily weighted components in a rankings. If a wrestler is deemed to be turn with another wrestler, holding a pretension will be a tiebreaker.
Wins and waste comment for a bulk of a week-to-week movement—wins and waste are, after championships, a many critical member of a rankings. The peculiarity of a wrestler’s opponents and either they are ranked is deliberate in a week-to-week movement.
Getting a improved of someone—like violence someone down—also counts, yet not as many as wins or losses. Being over with a fans is deliberate yet not heavily weighted in a ranking decisions. Pay-per-view performances take on combined importance.
Only a tip 10 wrestlers are ranked. Wrestlers on a “Watch List” were deliberate for top-10 standing yet were eventually nixed. They are unranked, and their inventory is in no sold order.
Generally speaking, these rankings do not mangle kayfabe, yet any vital non-storyline information (serious injury, WWE Wellness Policy violations, suspensions, legitimate hirings, firings, agreement information, “sabbaticals,” etc.) might be taken into consideration, generally if WWE confirms them publicly.
Domestic and general WWE live events are not enclosed in these rankings unless WWE incorporates them into radio storylines. Nothing that could be categorically deliberate a spoiler is enclosed unless WWE acknowledges it as well.
In short, all WWE shows, televised or digitally distributed, as good as anything from WWE.com, a WWE App, a WWE Network and any WWE or Superstar accounts on amicable media that don’t mangle kayfabe might be taken into care for these rankings. This might embody yet is not singular to WWE Raw, WWE SmackDown, WWE Main Event, WWE Superstars, NXT, WWE pay-per-views and any storyline-driven calm from a WWE Network.
