1. Randy Orton (Last week: 1)

The Viper continues to dominate the Power Poll with a victory over Sheamus in a grueling Hell In A Cell match to retain the WWE Championship  (My vote:  1)

2. Kane (2)

The Devil’s Favorite Demon is also the Father of Destruction’s favorite son, as proven by Paul Bearer’s assistance in Kane’s victory over his half brother The Undertaker at Hell In A Cell.  (My vote:  5)

3. Wade Barrett (8)

The leader of Nexus finds himself up five spots this week following a victory over John Cena that forced Cena to be a part of the Nexus.  Using his new authority over Cena’s career to help himself win the battle royal and become number one contender for Randy Orton’s WWE Championship didn’t hurt, either.  (My vote: 2)

4. John Cena (4)

Even I ranked John Cena high on my ballot this week, despite his loss to Wade Barrett at Hell In A Cell.  Cena played his role as the conflicted hero forced to join the enemy better than anybody thought he could.  Legendary is available on DVD and BluRay at Walmart, I saw it, I enjoyed it, so I’ll plug it here!  (My vote: 3)

5. Daniel Bryan (5)

The WWE United States Champion successfully defended his title in a triple threat, submissions count anywhere match at Hell In A Cell against John Morrison and The Miz, in what I consider a Match of the Year candidate.  One would have to think that if he hadn’t been beaten so handily by Sheamus this past Monday night on RAW, Bryan’s rank would have gone up.  (My vote:  8)

6. Edge (10)

Edge’s war on stupidity ran over three of the nights that this week’s poll covers.  On SmackDown he ruined Jack Swagger’s celebration, spearing his eagle mascot.  At Hell In A Cell, he interrupted Alberto Del Rio and then defeated Swagger in an impromptu match.  His momentum came crashing to a halt on RAW, after being traded to SmackDown and then receiving a beatdown from The Miz and Alex Riley.  (My vote:  4)

7. The Miz (6)

Mr. Money in the Bank tapped out at Hell In A Cell, but redeemed himself with the destruction of Edge, while saving Michael Cole, on RAW.  (My vote:  9)

8. Sheamus (7)

Sheamus may have lost at Hell in a Cell, but his impressive showing in his match with Randy Orton and his subsequent decimation of Daniel Bryan the following night on RAW allow the Celtic Warrior to stay in the top 10.  (My vote:  7)

9. Undertaker (3)

With Paul Bearer by his side last week, The Undertaker rose from the depths of wherever anybody that doesn’t make the Power Poll goes to hit number three, but drops to number nine as Paul Bearer has now aligned himself with Kane and cost The Undertaker the World Heavyweight Championship.  (My vote:  10)

10. Alberto Del Rio (NR)

His name is Alberto Del Rio!  But you, you already knew that.  After mocking Rey Mysterio with an actual chihuahua on SmackDown, Del Rio attacked The Rated R Superstar from behind at Hell In A Cell, putting Edge at a distinct disadvantage in his match with Jack Swagger.  (My vote:  N/A)

Dropped out: C.M. Punk

Also voted on by me: John Morrison (6)
