Wrestlemania XXX Power Rankings: The Yes Era Begins

With the guard passed to Daniel Bryan and Brock Lesnar conquering the streak, the WWE has a vastly different landscape after Wrestlemania.

Check out our Wrestlemania XXX Power Rankings to see who else took advantage and made Wrestlemania moments of their own.

Honorable Mention: John Cena: His win over Bray Wyatt and The Family keeps him pertinent, but makes Wyatt a legitimate contender for the WWe World Heavyweight Title. With no one else standing his way, expect someone to come out of the woodwork this week on RAW to set up his next angle.

5: AJ Lee: There is no one in the Divas Division even close in terms of storytelling ability. There are a few like Naomi and Nattie Neidhart who can perform in the ring as well as her, but bottom line is she held on to the Divas title for a reason. Only Kharma can change that.

4: Antonio Cesaro: His loss in the kickoff Tag Team title match was a perfect transition to his win in the Battle Royal. Already one of the company’s best workers, Cesaro is ready to make a run at the Intercontinental Title and eventually the WWE World Heavyweight Title. All he needs is some more mic time so he can develop a persona fans can fall for him. They already love what he does in the ring.

3: The Shield: Not many people can say they’ve destroyed both Kane and The New Age Outlaws, but The Shield is a special group. With three of the best young performers in the business, Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins are kings of their own castle right now. What’s next for them? Could it be another encounter with The Wyatt Family?

2: Brock Lesnar: Is he the right guy to have conquered the streak? The shocked looks on fans were priceless. There were even reports of fans leaving the arena after the match. Regardless of what you think, the WWE has managed to get fans emotionally invested in this one and that’s all that matters.

1: Daniel Bryan: Well, he’s finally the WWE Champion. How long can he keep the title? The fact that Randy Orton was not pinned only creates more controversy, which is sure to spill over through Extreme Rules. Bottom line though, after months and months of chasing Orton and the Authority, Bryan and his legions of fans have what they want.
