July Power Rankings

Updated: Sep 18

10. Triple Crown Champions

Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler made this list because they had maybe the best promo of the month heading into their Death Before Dishonor Title. They can do it in the ring, and they can do it on the mic. FTR is easily one of the best tag teams in wrestling today.


9. NXT Tag Championship

Watching Diamond Mine turn face and slowly turn against their heel leader Roderick Strong has been very entertaining. The tag champs are better as faces, and Roderick is better as a heel. The group has never been more entertaining.


8. NXT Champion

Bron Breakker is continuing his strong reign as NXT Champion. This month, he focused on finishing the feud with Joe Gacy, defeating Cameron Grimes, and starting a promising feud with JD McDonagh. A solid month for the standard bearer of NXT.


7. AEW Tag Team Championships

Starting with a predictable Young Bucks reign, the AEW Tag Team Championship picture took an unpredictable turn when Swerve In Our Glory defeated The Young Bucks and Powerhouse Hobbs/Ricky Starks to win the belts. The excellent match led to more intriguing stories for all three teams, and the tag team division under Swerve In Our Glory feels fresh for the first time in months.


6. FTW Championship

Ricky Starks is right. Every time he defended the championship, he turned it into something that felt meaningful. A couple of great open challenges this month were one thing, but concluding the month with a near perfect segment was special. Starks cut a promo of the year candidate turning babyface, Powerhouse Hobbs turned heel, and the month ended with a new FTW Champion, HOOK, who is holding the title his father conceived.


5. NXT Women's Tag Team Championships

You have to admit that this championship picture is exciting. In the month of July, long-term champions Toxic Attraction was finally dethroned. They lost to an exciting team of NXT rising stars, Roxanne Perez and Cora Jade, before Jade betrayed Perez and threw out the title. NXT management wouldn't have it, setting up a fatal four-way to decide new champions.


4. Undisputed Tag Team Championships

The Usos have been standard bearers of WWE as much or more than Roman Reigns. They started and ended the month winning excellent matches against The Street Profits at Money in the Bank and SummerSlam. That feud defined the division and carried segments on WWE TV throughout the month.


3. Impact Women's Champs Rosemary & Taya Valkyrie

The Jessicka storyline carried the Impact Tag Team Division and the show. When all else fails on Impact, you can always count on an interesting moment from the Tag Champions.


2. NXT Women's Champ Mandy Rose

The Women's Division was on fire in July. There were interesting womens' feuds everywhere you looked. At the top of it all sat Mandy Rose. Mandy Rose is the final boss of NXT, and she has been for a long time. The NXT Women's Division has clearly benefitted from her move to NXT.


1. TNT Champ Wardlow

Wardlow won the TNT Title and cemented himself as the Goldberg of this generation. He has been utterly dominant. He mows through people, and now he is holding the title. The sky is the limit for Wardlow. He is now at the top of the July Power Rankings, but who knows what's next?


Show of the Month: AEW Dynamite

AEW Dynamite ran special live shows almost every Wednesday for the entire month. Fyter Fest and Fight for the Fallen led to some of the best matches of the month, so it’s no wonder Dynamite is our show of the month.


Superstar of the Month

For the first time, the Superstar of the Month was actually a tag team. Swerve In Our Glory shot to the top of the AEW tag division and our highlight list in July.
