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 busy week that included Survivor Series 2018 and all of its fallout, a lot of fortunes were changed.
With that in mind, let’s see whose stock has decreased the most this week:
Stock Down #3: The Revival
WWE quickly put an end to any thought that the Revival’s impressive performance on the Survivor Series pre-show might lead to brighter days for the talented duo. One night later on Raw, Dash and Dawson went right back to being supreme jobbers and looking weak as hell against the Lucha House Party.
Stock Down #2: Seth Rollins
Rollins looked like a hopeless fool chasing Dean Ambrose around the arena throughout Raw this week. When Seth finally smartened up and got Ambrose all alone in the ring at the end of the night, Dean shrugged it off and took Seth out with a low blow and two Dirty Deeds. It looks like the Architect needs to design a much better plan for dealing with his former Shield brother.
Stock Down #1: Drake Maverick
Drake Maverick pissed his pants at Survivor Series and will now be the butt of some really cringe-worthy toilet humor going forward. At least Vince McMahon is getting a kick out of it, I guess.
Now let’s see whose stock has increased the most this week:
Stock Up #3: Daniel Bryan
Bryan masterfully played with everyone’s emotions at Survivor Series by receiving an uncomfortable ass kicking from Brock Lesnar for the better part of 10 minutes before firing up and taking the Beast Incarnate to the limit. Two nights later, Bryan’s convincing explanation of why he kicked AJ Styles in the balls accomplished the primary goal of getting the audience to boo the former beloved top babyface.
Stock Up #2: Nia Jax
Nia Jax is reaping the benefits of her infamous punch that injured Becky Lynch. WWE is now going all out to push Jax as the face-breaker, and she is receiving louder boos than anybody else on the roster.
Stock Up #1: Charlotte Flair
Charlotte Flair is nobody’s stepping stone. She took full advantage of the opportunity she received at Survivor Series by putting on a terrific match with Ronda Rousey. Charlotte’s violent post-match assault on Rousey now has The Queen in the same conversation with Becky Lynch and Rousey when it comes to the main event of WrestleMania 35.
There you have it, Cagesiders. Whose stock do you think has changed the most this week?
