Some places do power rankings. Here at Cageside, we do a stock report.
In this weekly series, we identify three Superstars (or teams of Superstars) who are on their way up, and three that are moving in the opposite direction. After a week that featured Elias getting booed for over five minutes in Seattle, John Cena unleashing the sixth move of doom, and Daniel Bryan using a small package to earn a shot at the WWE Championship, a lot of fortunes were changed.
With that in mind, let’s see whose stock has increased the most this week:
Stock Up #3: Konnor
Konnor is now on a winning streak after defeating Chad Gable and Bobby Roode in consecutive weeks. What the hell is going on here?
Stock Up #2: Authors of Pain
Akam and Rezar crashed the B-Team’s latest celebration on Raw and destroyed them with a Super Collider. It looks like DRAKE MAVERICK’s duo is about to quickly rise up the tag team ranks.
Stock Up #1: Ronda Rousey
Rousey forced Ruby Riott to tap out on Raw, and then forced the other members of the Riott Squad to tap out at Super Show-Down. The Raw women’s champion is still undefeated and steamrolling everyone in her path.
Now let’s see whose stock has decreased the most this week:
Stock Down #3: Dolph Ziggler
Braun Strowman accused Dolph Ziggler of being a weak link, and then Ziggler proved that point when he was pinned by Dean Ambrose in a 6-man tag team match at Super Show-Down.
Stock Down #2: The Revival
After stealing the show in a championship match with Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre one week earlier, Dash and Dawson were pushed right back down the ladder with a loss to the comedy B-Team.
Stock Down #1: Samoa Joe
Samoa Joe’s attempted invasion of the Styles’ household was apparently thwarted by local authorities. Joe then failed to win the WWE Championship when he tapped out to AJ at Super Show-Down. This is just the latest example of Joe talking a big game but not getting the job done on pay-per-view.
There you have it, Cagesiders. Whose stock do you think has changed the most this week?
