WWE Stock Report: Strowman’s gang has seized Roman’s yard

New, comment

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. And after a week which featured a locker room ambush of The Shield, Kevin Owens and Asuka returning to their respective brands, AJ Styles attempting to crush Samoa Joe’s skull with a steel chair, and a rare appearance from The Undertaker, a lot of fortunes were changed.

With that in mind, let’s see whose stock has decreased the most this week:

Stock Down #3: Finn Balor

Balor looked a bit silly following Baron Corbin’s orders to stop The Shield during the introductory brawl on this week’s (Sept. 3) Raw. He was then fed to Braun Strowman in the main event and needed The Shield to save him from post-match destruction.

Stock Down #2: The B-Team

The B-Team’s surprising run with the the Raw tag titles came to a sudden halt at the hands of Ziggler and McIntyre. It wouldn’t be a shock if they never held the titles again.

Stock Down #1: The Revival

The Revival were supposed to challenge for the tag titles on Raw, but they were instead taken out backstage like a couple of jobbers and rendered irrelevant for the rest of the night.

And now let’s see whose stock has increased the most this week:

Stock Up #3: R-Truth

R-Truth brilliantly used his grudge against Carmella to talk his way into the main event of this week’s (Sept. 4) SmackDown, and then he actually won the match! That’s what’s up.

Stock Up #2: Chad Gable & Bobby Roode

Gable shined in a major way on Raw when he essentially took out The Ascension by himself. Bobby Roode was extremely impressed by his partner’s athletic abilities. Who would have thought that a tag team of Chad Gable and Bobby Roode could be instantly captivating?

Stock Up #1: Braun Strowman, Dolph Ziggler, and Drew McIntyre

Strowman, Ziggler, and McIntyre formed a new faction and have already asserted their dominance by claiming the tag titles and completely annihilating The Shield.

There you have it, Cagesiders. Whose stock do you think has changed the most this week?
