Ranking the top WWE Superstars on Friday Night SmackDown. Brock Lesnar, Bayley and The Revival top their divisions.

The WWE Friday Night SmackDown power rankings changed a little bit this week with some matches turning heads. Nikki Cross jumps. Shinsuke Nakamura falls. Kalisto and the Lucha House Party join the rankings. Sasha Banks moves down. Read on to see where the SmackDown Superstars landed this week.

Tag Team Division

No. 1: The Revival

The current Friday Night SmackDown Tag Team Champions didn’t have a match this week, but still made their presence known ahead of the Tag Team Turmoil match at Crown Jewel on Thursday when they entered the arena following Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler’s defeat of The New Day. Their top spot is secure, barring any sudden changes this week.

No. 2: Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler

Having defeated The New Day, Roode and Ziggler move up the list as a team that has more cohesion than it should given how short a time they’ve been paired up. Both men are veterans of the sport, though, and professionals to boot. It’s clear that they work hard to be on the same page, and they’re making it known that they’re a force to be reckoned with.

No. 3: The New Day

With Xavier Woods out for a while with an Achilles injury, Kofi Kingston stepped back into the ring with Big E this week. Kingston was caught off guard by Ziggler and rolled up to be pinned, which is why New Day fell in the rankings. After his title reign, Kingston needs to get back on the same page as Big E if they want to make an impact on Thursday during the Tag Team Turmoil match.

No. 4: Heavy Machinery

They didn’t have their own match, but came to the aid of The New Day on Friday. Otis and Tucker helped Kofi and Big E dispatch of The Revival and Ziggler and Roode when the match ended. Otis and Tucker made sure no one forgot they were part of the Tag Team division ahead of the Tag Team Turmoil match on Thursday.

No. 5: Lucha House Party

They haven’t had a match as a tag team on Friday Night SmackDown yet, but Kalisto made an appearance against Drew Gulak on Friday. It reminded everyone that the Lucha House Party is still alive and well, and they will likely make an impact during Thursday’s Tag Team Turmoil match at Crown Jewel.
