Top WWE Superstars & Jobbers: 2018 Week 41

WWE went down under, giving extra opportunities to make up ground

by Owen Douglass | October 12, 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.

It was another busy week for the WWE, with a four-hour event on Saturday morning in Australia and then all the other regular programming. Did some superstars take advantage and make some moves upward in the rankings?

It was a busy week for several Raw superstars, having up to three matches. Braun Strowman came out with a positive ratio to maintain his lead, while a lot of the people in the 6-man tag broke even. Bobby Lashley also got a boost with two wins.

Top SmackDown Superstars

# Superstar W-L-D Prev Peak
1 AJ Styles 22-8-4 1 1
2 Shinsuke Nakamura 16-8-3 3 (+1) 1

9 Karl Anderson 10-11-0 10 (+1) 9
10 Randy Orton 6-7-1 - 10


Fallen off from last week: Harper (2 - inactive)

AJ Styles picked up THREE victories this week, giving his extra cushion in his already impressive lead. Harper was also removed for inactivity so most people moved up a space, but it wasn't really that eventful of a week for SmackDown outside of that.

Top Cruiserweights

# Superstar W-L-D Prev Peak
1 Cedric Alexander 24-3-0 1 1
2 Gran Metalik 19-6-1 2 2
3 Lince Dorado 16-8-2 3 3
4 Kalisto 16-11-1 4 2
5 Mustafa Ali 12-8-2 6 (+1) 5
6 Buddy Murphy 9-5-1 8 (+2) 5
7 Lio Rush 6-2-0 5 (-2) 4
8 Hideo Itami 8-5-3 7 (-1) 5
9 Noam Dar 5-2-0 9 4
10 Akira Tozawa 12-12-1 10 10


Cedric Alexander ended his singles undefeated streak in a blaze of glory as he lost his title to Buddy Murphy on Saturday and then lost to Tony Nese on Wednesday. Speaking of which, the new champion moved up two spots but doesn't seem able to take the top spot before the year ends unless something crazy happens.

Top NXT Superstars

# Superstar W-L-D Prev Peak
1 Pete Dunne 10-3-2 1 1
2 Hanson 5-0-0 2 2

6 Nick Miller 7-4-0 6 2
7 Shane Thorne 7-4-0 7 3
8 Keith Lee 3-0-0 - 8
9 Roderick Strong 12-10-1 8 (-1) 5
10 Kyle O'Reilly 7-5-0 10 5


Fallen off from last week: Adam Cole (9)

There were only two NXT matches this week, but they did actually make some impact on the rankings. Keith Lee makes his debut onto the list after beating Kona Reeves, and Adam Cole losing in the Triple Threat for the North American Championship knocked him back off.

Top Female Superstars

10 Lacey Evans NXT 7-5-0 - 10


Fallen off from last week: Sarah Logan (10)

Ronda Rousey picked up two more wins this week to enter the Top 3, while Ember Moon picked up two wins to give herself a small boost. Unfortunately The Riott Squad were on the losing end of Ronda's two matches so all the members suffered in the rankings, including Sarah Logan falling off.

The momentum gained by The Ascension was extinguished this week as they lost a tag match, but Tony Nese picked up a huge win over former Cruiserweight Champion Cedric Alexander so he moved down three spots. Sonya Deville's partner Mandy Rose also joined her on the list due to Kevin Owens being injured.
