RAW Power Rankings: Scene Set for Summerslam

While there was a hefty card and several solid moments in the ring this week on RAW, this episode was all about the confrontation between The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar.

Check out this week’s RAW Power Rankings to see who else starred in the first RAW on the way to Summerslam.

5: Charlotte Flair: Her second win over Brie Bella in as many nights, Flair has quickly established herself as a dominant performer in the new-look Divas Division. A one-of-a-kind performer, Flair is so much more than the daughter of Ric Flair- she’s someone that can help rebuild the Divas Division.

4: Seth Rollins: Despite getting his rear kicked at Battleground, Rollins was extremely confident this week on RAW, gloating about how he was somehow able to hold on to the WWE World Heavyweight title. But with John Cena’s newfound title aspirations, how much longer can Rollins hold on to the title?

3: John Cena: No one was expecting Cena to confront Seth Rollins on RAW this week. What does it mean for Rollins? What about Cena and the US title?

2: Brock Lesnar: Just like The Undertaker, Lesnar has a legacy to protect, but unlike Taker, Lesnar is still in the middle of carving one. Still deserving of a WWE World Title shot against Seth Rollins, Lesnar is arguably the most destructive force in WWE history.

1: The Undertaker: He wants a piece of Brock Lesnar, again. While many fans are thrilled at another Undertaker match, smarks can easily make note of the fact that Taker appears far more bitchy about his loss than most are accustomed to and that if Taker should be in the ring with anyone, it’s Sting, not Lesnar. Regardless, seeing Undertaker in the ring again is always a moment and the show was definitely better because of it.
