Top WWE Superstars & Jobbers: 2018 Week 17

Tripping our way through Saudi Arabia week.

by Owen Douglass | May 01, 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.

This edition of our statistics tracking article is a bit late, due to having to tabulate over 50 superstars for the Greatest Royal Rumble event. Our thoughts on Saudi Arabia are already all over the site, so I don't need to go into it again here. Let's just get into the second week of the newly shaken-up rosters.

Top Raw Superstars

# Superstar W-L-D Prev Peak
1 Braun Strowman 14-4-0 1 1
2 Matt Hardy 10-4-0 2 2
3 Dash Wilder 10-7-0 4 (+1) 1
4 Scott Dawson 10-7-0 5 (+1) 3
5 Seth Rollins 10-7-0 - 5
6 Akam 5-2-1 6 6
7 Rezar 5-2-1 7 7
8 Brock Lesnar 3-0-0 10 (+2) 7
9 Finn Bálor 12-10-0 8 (-1) 1
10 Bray Wyatt 7-5-0 - 10


Fallen off from last week: Bobby Roode (3), Goldust (9)

Braun Strowman was the only one to come out of the Greatest Royal Rumble match with a victory, keeping his top position and gaining a green belt that no one knows how he defends. Matt Hardy remains in second, but Bray Wyatt joins the list after the two won the vacant Raw tag titles. Seth Rollins also made a huge debut after a couple wins as Intercontinental Champion.

Top SmackDown Superstars

# Superstar W-L-D Prev Peak
1 Harper 10-0-0 1 1
2 Shinsuke Nakamura 9-2-2 4 (+2) 1
3 Rowan 8-1-0 3 2
4 AJ Styles 11-5-3 2 (-2) 2
5 Jeff Hardy 4-0-0 5 5
6 Daniel Bryan 2-1-1 7 (+1) 6
7 Alexander Wolfe 2-1-0 8 (+1) 7
8 Karl Anderson 8-8-0 6 (-2) 6
9 Jimmy Uso 5-5-1 - 9
10 Andrade "Cien" Almas 2-2-0 - 10


Fallen off from last week: Eric Young (9), Samoa Joe (10)

Shinsuke Nakamura and AJ Styles traded places again after Nakamura and Rusev Day won the main event on SmackDown. The weird thing here is the yet-to-be debuted Andrade Almas moving onto the list to replace the yet-to-debut Eric Young. But that's because Young lost on NXT since he's still on there as of this taping.

Top Cruiserweights

# Superstar W-L-D Prev Peak
1 Cedric Alexander 15-0-0 1 1
2 Gran Metalik 14-2-1 2 2
3 Kalisto 12-4-0 3 2
4 Lince Dorado 9-2-2 4 4
5 Mustafa Ali 8-4-0 5 4
6 Hideo Itami 4-2-2 6 5
7 Buddy Murphy 3-1-0 7 7
8 Akira Tozawa 6-5-1 8 2
9 Mark Andrews 3-2-0 9 6
10 The Brian Kendrick 1-0-0 10 10


Nothing happened.

Top NXT Superstars

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


Aleister Black demanded a match in the main event when his scheduled opponent was legit murdered by an evil beard man, and the victory helped boost him up two spots. Roderick Strong fell a spot by entering the Royal Rumble.

Top Female Superstars

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


Fallen off from last week: Becky Lynch (10)

It's hard to talk about the women when this is the week of the Saudi Arabia show. Bayley tumbled two spots and Ruby Riott traded places again with Becky Lynch as they keep dancing on and off the list.

Top Jobbers

# Superstar Brand W-L-D Prev
1 Ariya Daivari RAW 0-17-0 1
2 Tony Nese RAW 1-16-0 2
3 Bo Dallas RAW 0-12-0 4 (+1)
4 Curt Hawkins RAW 0-12-0 3 (-1)
5 Curtis Axel RAW 0-12-0 5
6 Rhyno RAW 1-13-1 6
7 Apollo Crews RAW 4-15-1 7
8 Kevin Owens RAW 1-11-2 9 (+1)
9 Heath Slater RAW 2-12-1 10 (+1)
10 TJP RAW 4-14-0 8 (-2)


Bo Dallas had two losses this week to move himself ahead of Curt Hawkins, while TJP's inactivity was almost enough to get him off of the list. So close.
