WWE Superstar Power Rankings for 2/23/2015: WWE Fastlane 2015 Edition
February 23, 2015 - WWE
WWE Fastlane 2015 is in a books, and as we go full speed forward toward WrestleMania XXXI, a WWE Superstar Power Rankings have a new No. 1—and they’ve seen utterly a bit of transformation this week. Speaking of WrestleMania XXXI, we now have dual matches set for a biggest eventuality in pro wrestling.
Triple H called out Sting, and a dual came to blows. Triple H picked adult his sledge produce yet was corroborated into a dilemma by Sting, who had his bat. Sting forked during a WrestleMania sign, and Triple H seemed to accept before Sting put a violence on him. We found out after in a dusk that a compare was indeed done official.
We also know who will face Brock Lesnar for a WWE World heavyweight Championship during WrestleMania: Roman Reigns. More on this in after slides. We saw a Rhodes family implode, witnessed a lapse of Randy Orton and much, many more.
We’ll get into all this past week’s action, including Fastlane, in a following slides. But before we do, please review how these rankings work.
These rankings are not a recognition competition and are not designed to establish who has a best matches, a many ability, etc. They are particularly in-storyline energy rankings.
These rankings cruise all active WWE Superstars and Divas on a categorical register and bar talents who essentially or exclusively combat on NXT. 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 tied in a rankings with another wrestler, holding a pretension will be a primary tiebreaker. However, holding a championship, being a No. 1 contender or holding a Money in a Bank briefcase in no approach guarantees a mark in a tip 10.
Wins and waste comment for a bulk of a week-to-week transformation and, after championships, are 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 scarcely as many as wins or losses. Being over with a fans (read: intensely popular) 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. However, any vital non-storyline information (serious injury, WWE Wellness Policy violations, suspensions, legitimate hirings, firings, agreement information, “sabbaticals,” etc.) might be taken into consideration, yet generally, usually if WWE confirms it 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 may 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.
