WWE Power Rankings 2018: Top 5 superstars, October 19 edition

These five superstars (or teams) are the best in the business for WWE right now.

1

The Shield

They've yet to split up again, even with teases that Dean Ambrose might be a bit shaky. Right now, they own two of "Raw's" titles with Reigns holding the Universal title and Rollins holding onto the Intercontinental belt. They've come a long way since the days of powerbombing opponents through tables to make statements. Now, they've made the statement that The Shield is the top stable in all of professional wrestling.

WWE Champion - AJ Styles

He's listed as the 133rd superstar to hold the WWE Championship, and right now his reign is approaching a full year. AJ won the belt back on November 7, in Manchester, England, to take the title from Jinder Mahal. He currently ranks No. 12 all-time for combined length of reigns, as his two reigns (485 and counting) are behind only the late Macho Man Randy Savage (520 days).

3

WWE Raw Tag Team Champion - Drew McIntyre

Fans who watched Drew McIntyre's run on WWE NXT knew he was destined for a great reboot when he hit the main roster. He looks ready for that next big run, after a recent mishap, where his foot happened to connect with "The Monster Among Men" Braun Strowman. Could Drew find himself a No. 1 contender for Roman Reigns' championship soon?

4

WWE SmackDown Women's Champion - Becky Lynch

Becky has cemented herself among the top WWE women's division stars of the current revolution. After wins against Charlotte Flair and some super strong heel promos, Lynch is getting her well-deserved run. One has to wonder if she's going to have a clash against Ronda Rousey at Survivor Series or has a Night of Champions match on the way.

5

WWE Raw Women's Champion - Ronda Rousey

This past Monday's "Raw" showed that Ronda Rousey is not only good in the ring, but also good in the ring on the mic. She cut a scathing promo toward future opponent Nikki Bella, that sites have reported she wrote herself. Rousey looks ready to lead this stage of the WWE women's revolution and seems ready for another big win at the Evolution PPV.
