Smackdown Live Power Rankings: Wild Card Rule Wreaks Havoc

Check out this week’s Smackdown Live Power Rankings to see how the new Wild-Card rule affected the Blue Brand this week.

Honorable Mention: Sami Zayn: He should be on Smackdown. He got a lot more heat and actually got to work in the ring for once.

5: Kevin Owens: He’s got some legitimate heel heat before Money in the Bank, but is it enough?

4: Shane McMahon and The Miz: This is the hottest rivalry in the WWE right now.

3: Randy Orton: Is The Viper back? Can we get to see RKOs more frequently again? Bottom line, he’s still an elite talent and the middle of the card would benefit immensely if he was on his game.

2: Daniel Bryan and Erick Rowan: The New Smackdown Tag Team Champions are absolutely a force. Expect a hundred-day run at least.

1: Kofi Kingston: All of a sudden, no one kicks out of The Trouble in Paradise and Kingston can beat anyone.
