What a difference two weeks can make. Cheap Grizzlies Jerseys . After the shocking return of?Triple H?on Monday Night Raw and the aftermath that saw Kevin Owens crowned as the new WWE Universal champion, there has been a rather jarring shake-up at the top of the ESPN WWE Power Rankings. All five writers impaneled to rank their top 10 superstars saw fit to put Owens in the No. 1 spot this week -- and thats not the only shocking twist to the latest version of these rankings.With an eye toward sorting things out after a hectic week, five ESPN WWE writers -- Brian Campbell, Peter Rosenberg, Arash Markazi, Tim Fiorvanti and Sean Coyle -- ranked the talents they deem to present the most value to WWEs on-screen product.Heres this weeks top 10.While he didnt want to hear it from the fans on Raw this week, Owens does deserve the position hes been put in as the face of Raw and the WWE. He may not be the first WWE Universal champion, but he is the longest-reigning champion (10 days and counting), and he will do more to lift the prominence of the title than anyone else currently on the roster could. (Markazi)Im struggling to think of a time and situation in which Rollins might not be a top-five performer in the WWE at any point in the near future. This guy continues to be gold, even when hes not wearing the strap. He is the perfect foil for?Stephanie McMahon?and the perfect counterpart to an increasingly beloved champion in Owens. (Rosenberg)At the very peak of his prime, its time for Styles to wear one of the companys most prestigious titles as the top guy on SmackDown Live. He just might get that chance Sunday at Backlash if a victory over Dean Ambrose is in the cards. Fresh off of an incredibly productive program with?John Cena, culminating in a show-stealing classic at SummerSlam, Styles has proved he is ready to carry the ball. (Campbell)While Ambrose may be sliding a bit, he is still carrying the WWE World Championship around, and thats a big deal. His carefree, eccentric character is magnetic, and despite a disappointing match with?Dolph Ziggler?at?SummerSlam, he has all the tools necessary to continue building a long, successful career as one of the pillars of the WWE. Being in the ring with Styles can only help in the long run. (Coyle)Im not quite sure why theyre rushing the conflict and a potential feud with?Dana Brooke, but honestly, everything that Charlottes doing right now entertains me. The WWE womens championship rematch at Clash of Champions?should provide her and?Sasha Banks?an opportunity to make up for what was, at times, a messy match at SummerSlam. (Rosenberg)Not only is The Miz in the midst of a career renaissance in this calendar year, over the last two weeks he has produced some of his best work on the microphone. Ever. Point-blank. Its good to see the Intercontinental champion set up the most meaningful match he and Zigger have ever had (and there have been quite a few), and his Never Ending Intercontinental Championship World Tour shows no signs of slowing down, with more than 150 days already in the books. (Campbell)The best tag team that the WWE has had in a long time has been the WWE world tag team champion for over a year. Theyre insanely over with the crowd and always entertaining. The only thing left for them to do to avoid becoming stagnant is dropping the tag team titles to?Luke Gallows?and?Karl Anderson?to reinvigorate their feud and make the pursuit of regaining the top spot one of the major focuses of Raw. (Markazi)Regardless of whether he gets a positive or negative crowd response, its always loud -- and Reigns consistently delivers in the ring. Whether hes in the main event or not, hes always in the conversation and one night away from believably inserting himself into a story, as he did on Monday. Hes taken over Cenas mantle as the most polarizing figure in the WWE. (Coyle)Theres little use in predicting what will catch on with the WWE Universe, and some of the most significantly popular superstars of the last decade got themselves to that point through sheer force of will (just look at?Zack Ryder). Saddled with what could have been a demoralizing career-ending gimmick of being the only superstar to go undrafted, Slater turned it into one of the most popular gimmicks going. Between his?continued attempts to wrestle for a contract on Raw and SmackDown and meeting his wife and seven kids, Slater has made his run toward the SmackDown tag team championships with?Rhyno?a huge deal. If?The Usos?predictably break his heart on Sunday, he should be able to carry on with the most popular self-made gimmick in the WWE right now for the foreseeable future.?(Fiorvanti)As her fellow Four Horsewomen were winning titles, stealing the show at Wrestlemania and leading the WWEs womens revolution, Bayley was biding her time and continuing to hone her craft in NXT. As much as her showdowns with Charlotte, Banks and?Becky Lynch?helped sharpen her skills, her pair of matches with Asuka helped give Bayley more of an edge in the past few months. Shes come into the WWE like a house of fire, and shes?already showing signs of having nearly endless potential. Visions of her becoming the womens divisions counterpart to Cena dont seem to be too far off the mark. (Fiorvanti)Dropped from rankings:?Finn Bálor?(6th), Cena (9th), Rusev (10th)Honorable mention: Randy Orton, Chris Jericho, Cena, Sasha Banks Cheap Grizzlies Jerseys Authentic . Note: The Calgary Flames announced Tuesday that Sean Monahan would not be made available to Canadas World Junior team. Cheap Memphis Grizzlies Jerseys .B. -- The Baie-Comeau Drakkar took over sole possession of first place atop the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League on Thursday with their sixth straight win. . The head of USA Boxing came out swinging Tuesday with an open letter to Tyson -- a former Olympic hopeful himself -- that accuses the former heavyweight champion of trying to poach fighters who might be candidates for the U. CLEMSON, S.C. -- Nothing has changed for Clemson coach Dabo Swinney, no matter how highly ranked the No. 2 Tigers start the season or how many people have them headed back to the national championship game.Swinney said when he got the fulltime job in 2009 after Clemson went 7-6 his mandate was to win whenever the Tigers kicked it off -- and nothing has changed following a 14-1 campaign and a trip to the College Football Playoffs where Clemson lost to Alabama.My expectation is weve still got a long ways to go, Swinney said Tuesday. Were making progress, but until we win two or three national championships, were still little ol Clemson.The Tigers start the trek they hope leads them back to the title game on Saturday at Auburn, where Clemson has lost seven straight since its last win there in 1950.Swinney likes the foundation of players back for another title shot, especially on offense where Clemson is led by one of the best in college football in quarterback Deshaun Watson. The junior comes off a season where he became the first in the Football Bowl Subdivision to throw for more than 4,000 yards and rush for more than 1,000. Hes one of the preseason favorites to win the Heisman Trophy and has not let the attention deflect his preparations.I just do what Ive got to do, have fun playing football and just enjoy it with my teammates, Watson said. There is really no pressure on me or this team. We just do what we do.Watsons also surrounded by ultra-talented skill players like 1,000-yard receiver Mike Williams and single-season rushing record-setter Wayne Gallman, who ran for 1,527 yards last season for the Atlantic Coast Conference champions.Were still very proud of what we did last year, Tigers center Jay Guillermo said. But it was last year.Hunter Renfrow, the receiver who caught two TDs in the title game, said people have told him all offseason how theyve booked hotel rooms in Tampa, Florida, site of this years champpionship. Cheap Grizzlies Jerseys China. old on a little bit, lets play the games, Renfrow said. We hope to be there and expecting to be there, but weve got to put in the work. It doesnt just happen.Clemson will break in some new faces on the defensive side when it faces Auburn. Defensive ends Shaq Lawson and Kevin Dodd, who were 1-2 nationally in tackles for losses, both gave up their senior seasons for the NFL and their replacements, sophomores Richard Yeargin or Christian Wilkins on one side, freshman Clelin Ferrell on the other, while talented are very untested.The Tigers secondary features three new starters after standouts in cornerback Mackensie Alexander and safeties Jayron Kearse and T.J. Green all left early for the pros. Ryan Carter or Mark Fields will take over for Alexander while Van Smith and Jadar Johnson are the starting safeties against Auburn.The group will have to go up against an Auburn offense led by quarterback Sean White, who won a three-man battle for the position last week. Auburn offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee said White is capable of success and expects to see him fired up to face Clemson.Hes kind of always played with that chip on his shoulder. Hes tough, Lashlee said.Swinney believes the experience from a year ago -- and the disappointing end -- have infused his players work habits this offseason. He did not see much loafing or inattention during spring or summer workouts, only a group that better understood what it takes to get another chance at the games biggest prize.We had some really good teams coming back. Weve had a lot of consistency over the last seven years, Swinney said. But I think this team has some experience to really draw upon that none of the other teams have had. They have a true understanding of what it takes, man, how youve got to get ready every week. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
