Power Poll 8/11/10: Better late than never edition

1. The Miz (5)

The United States Champion nearly took Evan Bourne’s head off, then convinced John Cena and Bret Hart to tell him that they need him.  Mr. Money In The Bank returns to the number one slot on the Power Poll because he’s The Miz, and he’s AWESOME!

2. John Cena (4)

John Cena managed to even out the playing field with The Nexus this week with the return of Edge and Chris Jericho to Team WWE.

3. Rob Van Dam (8)

Mr. Pay Per View proved it in a hell of a match with longtime ECW rival Sabu at HardCORE Justice.  Rob Van Dam carries the TNA World Heavyweight Championship back up the rankings with him this week.

4. Sheamus (3)

The Fellabration continues, although the WWE Champion slips to number 4 in this week’s Power Poll after being shown up by Randy Orton.  Destroying the NXT Rookies probably prevented him from slipping further.

5. Randy Orton (1)

Meanwhile, the number one contender drops from the number one spot in our poll.  Running Sheamus off doesn’t help The Viper stay at the top.

6. Kane (2)

The lowest ranked World Champion this week is the WWE World Heavyweight Champion Kane.  Does Rey Mysterio’s accusation that Kane is behind The Undertaker’s attack have anything to do with The Big Red Monster’s dramatic drop this week?

7. Rey Mysterio (7)

Rey Mysterio may or may not be behind the attack on The Undertaker, but one thing’s for sure, he’s behind number 7 for a second straight week here in the Power Poll.

8. Chris Jericho (6)

After a run-in with The Nexus during RAW’s main event, Chris Jericho re-joined Team WWE.  He also dropped two spots in the Power Poll.   I’d say you’re either Nexus or you’re against us, but I don’t see Wade Barrett and Co. anywhere on this list.

9. Dolph Ziggler (NR)

To further prove that all you have to do to get yourself on the Power Poll is win a championship, Dolph Ziggler won the Intercontinental Championship on Friday Night, now finding himself ranked at number 9.

10. Edge (NR)

Returning to the list this week is another man who re-joined Team WWE after a brawl with The Nexus, The Rated R Superstar, Edge.

  1. In the interest of comparison, and to show just how much I marked out watching HardCORE Justice last weekend, here are my votes for this week's poll:

    1. Tommy Dreamer
    2. Raven
    3. Rob Van Dam
    4. Sabu
    5. Randy Orton
    6. The Miz
    7. John Cena
    8. Chris Sabin
    9. Sheamus
    10. CM Punk

    By the way, if neither Chris Sabin, Alex Shelley, Robert Roode, or James Storm make next week's poll, I will be severely disappointed. MOTY candidate earlier tonight from those guys on TNA's "The Whole F'N Show."

      • Same here, and I don't think that anything WWE is going to do will make up for it. I guess we'll see at SummerSlam.

  2. Most definitely! I wondered of tag teams could be on the list, or if each guy had to be listed singly.

    • It's typically singles wrestlers, though some of the voters have voted for tag teams. I picked Sabin for this list for the sheer fact that he's the one that grabbed the X last week on iMPACT.
