ANALYSIS (and you can't spell it without A-N-A-L)
This was a real tough week for the rankings and most of the big guns took a hit, especially with Rock and Austin falling to the nWo last night. Five of the top ten wrestlers (RVD, Austin, Rock, Regal, and Kane) jobbed out this week. This led to a minor shirt of chance in the rankings, with Austin falling a couple of spots and number-one contender Triple H gearing up for Wrestlemania by moving into the four spot.

Looking at the top Chris Jericho held his ground well this week with a big win over Kane. This will insure that he will go into his match Sunday as the number one wrestler in the company. Rob Van Dam could've made a case to be number one, but he took a big loss to Goldust thanks to William Regal. RVD was also one of the few who had a chance to get a win back, which he did on RAW.

Rock ended up in a no-contest on his first match back, and then lost to the nWo on RAW. Despite all this, he retained his spot simply because there was no one to take it (kind of like last week, huh?)

After Trips and Regal, we see Diamond Dallas Page gain back the three spots he lost last week. He's also gained a match at Wrestlemania (I assume) with Christian. I could go on all day on how they should've kept Christian face, but that's neither here nor there. We'll see if DDP can keep his winning streak alive after X8.

Only one new wrestler this week, but it's a big one. Scott Hall rode the fan vote all the way onto the big board despite only wrestling in two matches with decisions. I am really looking forward to his match with Austin at Wrestlemania.

(1)Chris Jericho v (4)Triple H
(2)Rob Van Dam v (5)William Regal
(3)The Rock v Hollywood Hogan
(6)Diamond Dallas Page v Christian
(7)Steve Austin v (15)Scott Hall
(8)Kane v (10)Kurt Angle
(12)Booker T v Edge
(13)Jazz v Trish v Lita
(11)Billy & Chuck v All Corners

Until Wrestlemania...these numbers don't lie.
