The WWE On FOX Twitter account put out a “Tier List” of SmackDown Superstars on Friday and the grades aren’t going over well with a lot of fans on social media.
After backlash from Mickie James, who received an F grade, the WWE On FOX account revealed that the list was made up by FOX Sports WWE Analyst Ryan Satin. A column was published to the FOX Sports website detailing each grade at this link.
Mickie responded to the list and wrote, “[laughing emoji] [skull emoji] the only thing I’ve ever failed in was Trigonometry. #TrueStory also… who made this list anyway @WWEonFOX & please have them contact my agent. #ThankYou”
Mickie then responded to their tweet outing Satin as the creator, and referenced her appearance on Monday’s Legends Night edition of RAW, writing, “It’s ok! [laughing emoji] Apparently y’all missed the memo. I’m a Legend now! We shall say F is for Fanciest… clearly! In the future, if my name hits your lips make sure you put RESPECT on it. That’s all. Happy 202Won & I can’t wait to see you on Monday!!! [toast emoji] #WWERaw [fire emoji] [snake emoji] #LegendsNight [kiss emoji]”
She added in a follow-up tweet, “I forgot. Sarcasm & humor doesn’t always translate in tweets. My bad y’all! #calmdown [toast emoji] [kiss emoji]”
Satin explained the list and wrote, “Keep in mind, these tiers represent how each Superstar is being used on TV at the moment – not level of talent.”
The “Tier List” looks like this:
B+ – SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Street Profits, Rey Mysterio, Kevin Owens
B – WWE Intercontinental Champion Big E, Otis, Sami Zayn, Jey Uso, Bianca Belair
C+ – Dolph Ziggler, King Baron Corbin, Murphy, Carmella
C – Cesaro, Shinsuke Nakamura, Robert Roode, Dominik Mysterio, The Riott Squad, Natalya, Billie Kay, Chad Gable
D – Aleister Black, Apollo Crews, Lars Sullivan
F – Kalisto, Mickie James, Mojo Rawley

My SmackDown Tier List 1.0— Ryan Satin (@ryansatin) January 1, 2021
Do you agree with these choices?
Keep in mind, these tiers represent how each Superstar is being used on TV at the moment – not level of talent.
