Top WWE Superstars & Jobbers: 2018 Week 15

That weird spot between WrestleMania and the Superstar Shakeup

by Owen Douglass | April 13, 2018


Each week, we look through the win-loss records of the WWE Superstars during the year to see who really are the best and worst, if wins and losses actually mattered. You can view more over in our Statistics section. You can also help support us by subscribing to our Patreon.

If you were living under a rock (or spending the weekend in Boston for PAX East), WrestleMania Week has come and gone. After too many days in New Orleans, WWE emerges with a lot of people losing in battle royals and a few NXT graduations. Things will get even crazier next week with the Superstar Shakeup completely changing up the layout of these articles. So here is our last look at the rankings with the current rosters.

Top Raw Superstars

# Superstar W-L-D Prev Peak
1 Braun Strowman 11-4-0 1 1
2 Dash Wilder 9-5-0 2 1
3 Scott Dawson 9-5-0 3 3
4 Matt Hardy 7-4-0 8 (+4) 4
5 Goldust 7-5-0 4 (-1) 1
6 Akam 4-2-1 - 6
7 Rezar 4-2-1 - 7
8 Brock Lesnar 2-0-0 9 (+1) 7
9 Finn Bálor 10-9-0 7 (-2) 1
10 Karl Anderson 7-6-0 5 (-5) 2


Fallen off from last week: Luke Gallows (6), Cesaro (10)

The Authors of Pain made their main roster debut on Raw and immediately mark their spots on the rankings. Matt Hardy winning the Andre Battle Royal gave him a nice boost, and Brock Lesnar getting his second win of the years puts him in a good spot to stick around for a while... until he loses at the end of the month.

Top SmackDown Superstars

# Superstar W-L-D Prev Peak
1 Harper 8-0-0 2 (+1) 1
2 Rowan 7-0-0 3 (+1) 2
3 Shinsuke Nakamura 8-2-1 1 (-2) 1
4 AJ Styles 9-4-2 4 2
5 Bobby Roode 8-6-0 5 1
6 Jey Uso 3-2-1 7 (+1) 6
7 Daniel Bryan 1-0-1 - 7
8 Baron Corbin 5-5-1 6 (-2) 6
9 Jinder Mahal 5-5-0 - 9
10 Jimmy Uso 4-4-1 9 (-1) 9


Fallen off from last week: Primo Colon (8), Xavier Woods (10)

Shinsuke Nakamura lost at WrestleMania both his opportunity at the WWE Championship and his spot on top of SmackDown. We also have the debut of Daniel Bryan on the rankings as he had two matches this week, and that asshole Jinder Mahal is back due to winning the United States Championship.

Top Cruiserweights

# Superstar W-L-D Prev Peak
1 Cedric Alexander 14-0-0 1 1
2 Gran Metalik 12-2-1 2 2
3 Kalisto 11-3-0 3 2
4 Lince Dorado 7-2-2 5 (+1) 4
5 Mustafa Ali 7-3-0 4 (-1) 4
6 Hideo Itami 4-1-2 7 (+1) 5
7 Akira Tozawa 6-4-1 6 (-1) 2
8 Buddy Murphy 3-1-0 8 8
9 Mark Andrews 3-2-0 9 6
10 Drew Gulak 3-8-0 10 9


Mustafa Ali fell a spot after losing at WrestleMania, and Akira Tozawa fell below his partner Hideo Itami after suffering a loss on 205 Live.

Top NXT Superstars

# Superstar W-L-D Prev Peak
1 Pete Dunne 4-1-1 1 1
2 Roderick Strong 6-4-1 2 1
3 Aleister Black 3-1-0 7 (+4) 3
4 Kyle O'Reilly 3-1-0 - 4
5 Velveteen Dream 3-2-0 5 1
6 Lars Sullivan 2-1-1 6 6
7 Alexander Wolfe 2-1-0 8 (+1) 2
8 Eric Young 2-1-0 10 (+2) 8
9 Nick Miller 2-1-0 - 9
10 Shane Thorne 2-1-0 - 10


Fallen off from last week: Akam (3 - moved to Raw), Rezar (4 - moved to Raw), Andrade "Cien" Almas (9)

As mentioned earlier, The Authors of Pain are gone from NXT and opened up two spots. But Andrade "Cien" Almas also fell off the list when he lost his NXT Championship to Aleister Black, he moved up a big four spots. With all the openings, TM61 are back despite not wrestling in a while.

Top Female Superstars

# Superstar Brand W-L-D Prev Peak
1 Asuka RAW 17-1-0 1 1
2 Shayna Baszler NXT 4-1-0 5 (+3) 2
3 Bayley RAW 8-6-0 2 (-1) 2
4 Charlotte Flair SD 7-5-0 4 3
5 Bianca Belair NXT 3-1-0 3 (-2) 2
6 Nikki Cross NXT 2-0-0 6 4
7 Ronda Rousey RAW 1-0-0 - 7
8 Ember Moon RAW 3-3-0 - 8
9 Becky Lynch SD 5-6-0 7 (-2) 7
10 Ruby Riott SD 4-5-0 8 (-2) 3


Fallen off from last week: Sarah Logan (9), Dana Brooke (10)

Ronda Rousey had a stellar debut at WrestleMania, and made her debut on this list alongside the return of new Raw superstar Ember Moon. Shayna Baszler moved up into second with her NXT Women's Championship win, but the biggest story is Asuka having a 1 in her loss column for the first time since that battle royal in NXT a couple years ago.

Top Jobbers

# Superstar Brand W-L-D Prev
1 Ariya Daivari RAW 0-15-0 1
2 Tony Nese RAW 1-14-0 2
3 Curt Hawkins RAW 0-10-0 3

7 Apollo RAW 4-13-1 7

9 Jack Gallagher RAW 1-8-0 10 (+1)
10 Heath Slater RAW 2-9-1 -


Fallen off from last week: Kevin Owens (9 - no brand)

Everyone pretty much loss in the Andre Battle Royal, loss on 205 Live, or had nothing going on this week. Kevin Owens didn't get his job back, so for the time being he and Sami Zayn are ineligible for ranking.
