Smackdown Power Rankings: Styles Holding It Down

Check out this week’s Impact Wrestling Power Rankings to see how the Blue Brand’s continued efforts towards Extreme Riles are progressing. 

Honorable Mention: Shinsuke Nakamura: The former Intercontinental Champion earned an impressive win over Kofi Kingston this week. 

5: Matt Riddle: Awful promo aside, his win over John Morrison was impressive, but still a gift. 

4: Drew Gulak: The Submission Maven is so much more than a good hand and this week proved it. 

3: Bayley: Smackdown’s Women’s Champion continues to hold on to the strap, but for how long?

2: Jeff Hardy: Although the segment on this week’s Smackdown felt forced, Hardy will be the real winner once his feud with Sheamus is over. 

1: AJ Styles: He’s the best worker on Smackdown and proved it again this week.
