Ranking #15 – Beth Phoenix
While Phoenix did not compete in the Royal Rumble, she made sure her presence was felt when she took out Rhea Ripley not only during the Men’s Rumble but also during the main event of RAW.
While Ripley may be focused on her road to WrestleMania, it is apparent that Phoenix plans to be quite the obstacle as she seeks vengeance against The Judgment Day. There have been prior rumors of her being involved in the Elimination Chamber event, so we’ll have to see how this plays out.
Ranking #14 – Toxic Attraction
Ever since Mandy Rose‘s departure, all eyes have been on Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne to see what the future might hold for the once dominant stable. Without a leader would they fall apart or flourish?
At Vengeance Day, the duo got their biggest opportunity to stand out as solo stars after realizing their planned cooperation could only net one of them the title. Including a strong promo on NXT and solid performances from both ladies, they have scraped their way into the rankings. The question is, will this be the first and last time they appear as a duo?
Ranking #13 – Saraya and Toni Storm
The duo of Saraya and Storm have no interest in making friends in the AEW locker room. After the duo’s heel turn, they used their time this week on AEW to take out AEW original, Britt Baker. Their actions have repercussions throughout the division as the likes of Hikaru Shida and Ruby Soho are caught up in the midst of a coming war.
They’ve proven they’re more than just talk to as the pair defeated The Renegade Twins on AEW Rampage, cruelly spray-painting their foes with ‘L’s to add insult to injury.
Ranking #12 – Natalya
The Queen of Harts made her return to the WWE at the Royal Rumble after suffering a broken nose. While the Rumble did not go to plan, her return to Smackdown was far more triumphant.
With Elimination Chamber taking place in Canada, Natalya was especially motivated to win her qualifying match and also get revenge on Shayna Baszler. The ending came when Natalya capitalised on a wounded Zelina Vega and locked in the sharpshooter.
Ranking #11 – Gisele Shaw
The Quintessential Diva is unbothered by your taunts and she wants you to know it. This week, not only did Shaw defeat Savannah Evans in singles competition but she took to the mic to address recent events.
Singlehandedly taking credit for the departures of The Influence, Chelsea Green and Tasha Steelz, Shaw has declared herself The Black Widow of Impact Wrestling and it seems none her safe from her bite.
