WWE Power Rankings: Bryan Still the Man

The promo between CM Punk and Paul Heyman fueled the emotional element of the show, while Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton stole the show in what turned out to be another solid episode of RAW.

Check out our Weekly RAW Power Rankings to see who else shined on a entertaining episode of the WWE’s flagship program.

5: Randy Orton: Daniel Bryan may get more of the headlines in their current feud, but make no mistake; this is the best Orton has looked in over two years. Passionate in the ring and less vocal, the Viper is back.

4: AJ Lee: The Divas division hasn’t seen a champion this devious in years. While she’s not as seasoned a performer as some of the better Divas champions of yesteryear, Lee’s reign represents a kind of renaissance in the division. Adorable, but evil, Lee is a perfect companion to Dolph Ziggler and an even more capable Divas Champion.

3: Dolph Ziggler: He hasn’t wrestled on RAW in over a month, but he’s still a ball of fire. WWE fans want to see him square off with Del Rio for the World title, but they especially want to see “The Show-Off” square off with Chris Jericho. Once that happens, with the World title on the line, Ziggler will be more over than he is right now. How that affects his relationship with AJ Lee and Big E. Langston remains to be seen, but it should be interesting.

2: CM Punk: Damn Punk was emotional this week on RAW. In one of the best promos of his career, Punk demanded the truth from Paul Heyman. Citing professional jealousy, Heyman told Punk he was the one to initiate the fight when he claimed Lesnar “needed” Heyman last week. Even though Punk didn’t get the answers he was looking for, one thing is clear. Brock Lesnar and Punk are about to go to war.

1: Daniel Bryan: Is anyone more over than Bryan in the WWE right now? His “Napoleon Complex” gimmick is a bit out there, but the fans are eager for more. Easily the best worker in the company, Bryan has become so much better on the microphone than anyone could have ever thought. His matches with Randy Orton this week again proved he is one of the most well rounded performers in the world today.
