Welcome to Wrestler Wrankings, where the intelligent wrestling fan turns for coverage of the world's only pure form of sport.
No Way Out saw all of WWE's singles champions hold serve, so there wasn't much movement near the top of the Wrankings despite the 1.5x pay-per-view point bonus. This begs the question, who can challenge the seemingly infallible top three of Sheamus, Punk, and Ryback?
To answer this question, I'd look no further than one Alberto Del Rio. The favorite son of San Luis Potosi appears to have used his considerable wealth and influence to acquire the finest medical care in all of Mexico, fully recovering from his recent concussion. His robust health, coupled with an extensive amateur wrestling background, makes the Mexican Aristocrat a favorite over all but the toughest of opponents. Specifically, Del Rio is just the kind of technician that can give powerhouses like Sheamus and Ryback fits, while also being able to go hold for hold with CM Punk. Only time will tell, of course; but it would be no surprise to see the master of the Cross Armbreaker approach the zenith of the Wrankings at some point this summer.
