WWE RAW Superstar Rankings for August 1

Hello all, I figured I should explain how I will go about doing these rankings. My goal is not to do a power ranking based on opinion, but more so on logic. Now that the rosters are organized onto the two shows, we have a clear idea of who we should be seeing every Monday or Tuesday night.

We also should be able to easily organize each roster into divisions. The divisions include Upper Card, Lower Card, Tag Team and Women. We would also have the Cruiserweight Division on RAW once that starts up. I will organize my rankings into their respected divisions and base rankings on statistics such as wins, losses, level of opponent (Zayn is a mid-carder but fought Rollins so a loss won’t affect him as badly as a loss to a fellow mid-carder), and appearances (being in promos shouldn’t hurt a superstar as they are still being featured on the show).

Hopefully this ranking style works for you guys, let me know in the comments if you have any recommendations.
