    Thank you, thank you, thank you to Jason Mann of Wrestlespective for using one of my favorite old Bobby Heenan jokes for the title of this week’s Power Poll.  Ready?  Here we go!

    Power Poll 9/29/10: Well, he urn-ed it!

    1. Randy Orton (Last week: 1)

    The Viper has set a record for most weeks at number one on the Power Poll – which, given the short time frame that the poll has been around, isn’t nearly as impressive as it sounds.  Still, the WWE Champion manages to hang on to the top spot this week with his dismantling of Chris Jericho on RAW.  (My vote: 2)

    2. Kane (3)

    The World Heavyweight Champion moves up a spot this week to number two after destroying Chris Masters and calling out his brother The Undertaker on SmackDown.  (My vote: 7)

    3. Undertaker (NR)

    Speaking of The Undertaker, the power of the urn returns to him in the form of Paul Bearer at his side.  Finally shifting the balance of power to his half of the dark side, the Phenom jumps from obscurity to the number 3 spot on the Power Poll (My vote:  4)

    4. John Cena (5)

    Let the instant replay in professional wrestling debate begin!  The anonymous General Manager of RAW restarted Cena’s match with Edge after the Rated R Superstar pinned Cena with his foot under the bottom rope, leading to an STF victory for Cena.  The GM, on the other hand, wasn’t so lucky… (My vote: NR)

    5. Daniel Bryan (2)

    The United States Champion may have bit off more than he can chew when he inadvertently hit tag team partner John Morrison following their loss on Monday.  He now finds himself in a triple threat match with former WWE Tag Team Champions at Hell In A Cell.  (My vote:  NR)

    6. The Miz (4)

    He’s The Miz, and he pinned Bryan Daniel clean this past Monday on RAW.  The second part of the US Championship triple threat at Hell in a Cell, Mr. Money In The Bank drops two spots this week.  (My vote:  9)

    7. Sheamus (10)

    The former WWE Champion must’ve done something to redeem himself this week, since he’s moved back up three slots to number seven.  Destroying The Great Khali, even if it was with chairs, will do that, fella!  (My vote: 5)

    8. Wade Barrett (8)

    The leader of the Nexus coached the team of Heath Slater and Justin Gabriel to victory over Evan Bourne and Mark Henry, then joined in on the post match beatdown of Bourne.  He faces John Cena at Hell In A Cell – can he win and prevent Nexus from disbanding?  (My vote:  NR)

    9. CM Punk (NR)

    With an out of nowhere victory over former Straight Edge Society running buddy Luke Gallows, CM Punk returns to the Power Poll.  (My vote:  3)

    10. Edge (NR)

    After having a pinfall victory overturned by the anonymous General Manager, the Rated R Superstar finally had enough and destroyed the GM’s computer.  Maybe now we’ll finally find out who the GM is.  (My vote: 1)


    Dropped out:
    Alberto Del Rio, Dolph Ziggler, John Morrison

    Also voted on by me: Alberto Del Rio (6), The Pope (8), and John Morrison (10)
