RAW TOP 10: October 15, 2019

Your weekly Raw Top 10 is back again, ranking the Top 10 Raw superstars and tag teams. The WWE Draft really changed the landscape, and that is reflected huge in this week’s list.

Rankings are based on wins and losses, with extra points given when titles are involved. Rankings are based on the last 10 weeks of Raws and any PPVs that may entail. Weekly scores depreciate, so, for example a win this week is worth more than a win a month ago.

Only superstars on the Raw brand will be ranked in the Raw rankings.

Universal Champion Seth Rollins is #1 again this week. Rollins hasn’t competed on Raw in the last couple of weeks, but he made a huge statement last night when he stepped into the Firefly Fun House and literally burned it down. With The Fiend shipped to Smackdown, is it unwise for the champ to still be focusing so much energy on Bray Wyatt? Meanwhile, Rollins was the #1 draft pick on Raw.

Raw Women’s Champ Becky Lynch hops up to #2 this week. Becky was the #1 overall draft pick on Friday night, and she’ll be sticking with Raw. Becky defeated Charlotte Flair to give Raw the first pick in the draft last night. Charlotte ended up coming to Raw, so there could be a renewed Becky/Charlotte feud. The Queen makes her Raw Top 10 debut at #5.

Charlotte isn’t the only Smackdown transfer making their debut this week. The 13x World Champion Randy Orton is back on Raw. He makes his Top 10 debut at #10.

The Viking Raiders shoot up to #3 this week with a big Raw Tag Team Title victory over Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode on Raw. The Raiders will be looking at defending against the likes of the newly drafted Street Profits and the O.C. since Roode and Ziggler are both Friday night guys now.

United States Champion AJ Styles drops to the #4 spot this week. AJ hasn’t been in the ring the last couple of Mondays, but he will be staying on Raw. Styles along with Gallows & Anderson did make a statement last night with a brutal beatdown on the Street Profits.

Ricochet jumps up a spot to #6 this week. The 1 And Only will hope to take advantage of a somewhat bottom-heavy Raw roster post-draft. Ricochet defeated Raw transfer Shelton Benjamin last night. If he keeps up his winning streak, it could become Monday Night Ricochet.

Natalya is up three spots to #7 this week in spite of a tag team loss to the Kabuki Warriors last night. Natalya chose the somewhat odd partner of Lacey Evans last night, who she’s been feuding with for the past several weeks. I’d complain about how that’s nonsensical, but Lacey is headed to Smackdown anyway.

Raw has become the place to be for women’s tag teams. Raw drafted the Women’s Tag Team Champion Kabuki Warriors, and is also still the home of former champs Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross. That team stays put at #8 this week.

Cedric Alexander returns to the Top 10 at #9 this week after falling off last week. Alexander could be in major danger of falling off permanently after a loss to Buddy Murphy last night. Murphy was looking to make a major impact after being drafted to Raw from Smackdown.
