SummerSlam featured 10 matches in all, and many lived adult to their hype. But SummerSlam wasn’t a usually vital WWE eventuality of this past weekend. NXT Takeover: Brooklyn saw a plain two-plus hours of extraordinary matches. If we have a WWE Network and we haven’t seen it yet, you’re blank out.
Between NXT Takeover: Brooklyn and SummerSlam, it was one extraordinary WWE weekend that saw new champions, implausible transformation and even a pretension unification.
We’ll get into all a SummerSlam formula and this past week’s events in larger fact via a following slides. But beforehand, please review how these rankings are determined.
These rankings are not a recognition competition and are not designed to establish who has a best matches or a many ability. These rankings are strictly in-storyline power rankings.
All active Superstars and Divas on a WWE register are considered, incompatible talents who essentially or exclusively perform in NXT. Exceptions might be done on a case-by-case basis, yet any NXT Superstar deemed authorised for these rankings will sojourn on a Watch List until strictly named a partial of a WWE categorical roster.
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 weighed components.
If a wrestler is deemed to be tied with another, 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 movement and, after championships, are a many critical components of a rankings. The peculiarity and arrange of a wrestler’s opponents are deliberate in a week-to-week movement.
Getting a improved of someone—such as violence someone down—also counts, yet not scarcely as many as wins and losses. Being over with a fans (i.e., removing a clever reaction) is not heavily weighted in a ranking decisions; it is effectively a final tiebreaker. Pay-per-view wins and waste 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 and “sabbaticals”—may be taken into consideration, yet generally usually if WWE confirms or addresses it publicly.
WWE’s non-televised domestic and international live events are not included in these rankings unless WWE incorporates them into radio storylines or acknowledges them on WWE television. Also, zero that could be categorically deliberate a spoiler is enclosed unless WWE acknowledges it as well.
In short, all WWE main-roster 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 consideration.
These might embody yet are 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.
