Smackdown Live Power Rankings: Joe is Ready

Check out this week’s Smackdown Live Power Rankings to see who’s got momentum on their side before Crown Jewel.

Honorable Mention: Shinsuke Nakamura: His win over R-Truth was impressive, but he hasn’t done much to make the United States Title mean anything.

5: The New Day: Their charisma is only seconded by their ability in the ring. Even without the Smackdown Tag Team Titles, they are the most important team on the show.

4: Becky Lynch: The Smackdown Women’s Champion continues to hold down the fort. She’s a star.

3: Daniel Bryan: Has his loss to AJ Styles on Smackdown killed his chances at reclaiming the WWE Championship?

2: AJ Styles: His submission win over Daniel Bryan was impressive, but he’s got bigger fish to fry in Samoa Joe.

1: Samoa Joe: His attack on both Daniel Bryan and AJ Styles was one of the best moments on Smackdown in months. After months of being misused, Joe finally has the role of spoiler and is ready to be the type of performer he was when he was a star in TNA.
