Big unveilings, ambulances and dancing wrestlers step aside. This week’s Review Fix RAW Power Rankings highlight the gritty and polished performances of both the established and up and coming stars that really “worked” in the squared circle this week.
5: Titus O’Neill: Damn did this guy manhandle Sheamus for a bit on RAW this week. Sure, he didn’t get the win, but for a short while, he looked like a convincing and dominant singles performer. It’s obvious that Darren Young may not want to hear this, but Young may be the better performer of the two.
4: Chris Jericho: Y2J could still be a better WWE or World Champion than 95 percent of the people on the roster. Fans still respond to him and he can still work. His angle with Fandango is one of the more colorful ones in the company right now. But make no mistake, it has the potential to be one of the best in the ring as well. Although his tag team match with The Miz against Wade Barrett and Fandango was nothing to call home about, Jericho was the one real bright spot both creatively and in the ring.
3: Big E. Langston/AJ Lee: Talk about an upset win. Sure, he needed an Eye Rake to turn the tide, but a win over Alberto Del Rio is huge for any youngster. With Dolph Ziggler on the shelf, Langston has filled in well as a guy who can fill up some time on RAW. As far as Lee goes, she continues to dominate the Divas division with a sexy blend of submission and charisma. Her angle with Kaitlyn has the potential to be one of the best ones in the Divas Division in years.
2: The Shield: These guys continue to do everything right in the ring and on the microphone. And now they have the credibility that comes with the Tag Team and United States titles. With another RAW epic under their belts, The Shield continues to carve their legacy as one of the best threesomes in recent memory.
1: Daniel Bryan: Say whatever you want about The Shield, but Bryan has helped them tremendously by making them look like gods in the ring. At the same time, Bryan has been an offensive machine. Lets not forget about the promos before the match this week where Bryan felt as if he was the “weak link” in Hell No. With something to prove, to himself, Bryan put on one of the best performances of his career on RAW this week.
