WWE Superstar Power Rankings for 12/29/2014: New-Year Edition
December 29, 2014 - WWE
The finish of 2014 is on us, and a final WWE Superstar Power Rankings of a year is yet too many changes from final week.
We saw WWE Hall of Famers Hulk Hogan and “Rowdy” Roddy Piper make appearances on WWE TV this past week. On tip of that, we saw dual pretension matches. For a holiday week, it was a sincerely eventful set of shows. It’s transparent that things are heating adult in expectation for WWE Royal Rumble 2015.
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 and “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.
