The writers who cover the WWE for ESPN like to pride themselves on sensing the writing on the wall as the ongoing story that the WWE tells on its airwaves week by week progresses. We, however, like much of the WWE Universe, were undeniably shocked by the result of the Survivor Series main event in which Goldberg absolutely demolished Brock Lesnar in one minute, 26 seconds on Sunday and announced himself as a major destructive force.His emphatic return to the ring after 12 years out of the WWE, followed by a proclamation on Monday Night Raw that hed be a part of the 2017 Royal Rumble match in January, makes it clear that the final chapter of the story of Goldberg and Lesnar hasnt yet been written. While he may be away for a little while, Goldberg made enough of an impact that he assured himself of his first-ever appearance in the ESPN WWE Power Rankings as well.Our voting panel, which includes writers Brian Campbell, Peter Rosenberg, Tim Fiorvanti, Arash Markazi, Nic Atkin and Sean Coyle, broke down the fallout from the Survivor Series to compile the latest WWE on ESPN rankings. In addition to Goldbergs debut, theres a second new name on this list, along with another high-water mark for another seemingly ageless (and, coincidentally, another former Goldberg rival) superstar in Chris Jericho. Heres how the rest of the top 10 shook out:The top 10 is shown by rank (with first-place votes received in parentheses) and how much theyve moved up or down from the previous edition of the ESPN WWE Power Rankings.The face that runs the place also runs this list yet again. Styles is the most well-rounded superstar on either roster, and he continues to prove it with every week that passes. The excitement, energy and innovation he brings into his matches, combined with the consistent entertaining nature of his promos, has him at the top of his game. Somehow, the freshness of the James Ellsworth trial run has not yet expired and even turned into a full-time job for Ellsworth -- and thats a testament to the work of Styles. He can bring the best out of anyone. (Coyle)Owens can work with the best of them on an elite level in WWE, but his strength on the microphone just might be his best attribute. He can certainly play the vicious, unrepentant heel with the best of them, but hes even better, somehow, in a comedic role. Hes been able to showcase that versatility in recent months while paired perfectly with best friend Chris Jericho. (Campbell)The best heels in the world of wrestling, since its earliest days, are simultaneously able to make their opponents look like solid gold while getting the crowd to absolutely hate their guts. Flair is displaying many of the tendencies that made her father the most iconic heel in the history of the wrestling business, but shes doing it in her own way. Shes done so for months (years, really) with Sasha Banks, and the launching point for a feud with Bayley was instantly successful; by taking away the spotlight from Bayley, who scored the first major highlight of her main roster career by pinning?Becky Lynch?and securing the victory for her Survivor Series team by immediately taking her out, Flair?established that shes unwilling to share the spotlight and earned major sympathy for the presumptive next contender for her WWE Raw womens championship. (Fiorvanti)Every time we seem to start running out of great things to say about Jericho, he steps it up to yet another level. He has been consistently praised throughout the year, and rightfully so -- and now he reaches his highest point ever in these rankings at No. 4. He is so valuable to the current product in that he elevates anyone who comes in contact with him, and the go-home RAW show before Survivor Series illustrated the perfect example. Jericho hadnt interacted with Ellsworth on TV (though he did have him on his podcast), and after making a single comment about SmackDowns mascot and adding him to The List of Jericho, the crowd instantly exploded and started chanting Ellsworths name. Thats what Jericho does. He finds ways to get talent over, and he does it better than anyone. (Coyle)Ambrose is the perfect example of how quickly a reclamation project can come together. His work with Styles and Ellsworth has completely rejuvenated his appeal as the top face on SmackDown Live, and his mid-match conflict with his teammate Styles at the Survivor Series helped illustrate how deep-seated the hatred between the two men is. Look no further than this past week on SmackDown, when Ambrose was kicked out of the arena half a dozen times and kept returning under more and more ridiculous circumstances (including a spell dressed up as 90s WWE superstar The Mountie). While his buddy comedy with Ellsworth has real legs, Ambrose also has been able to sell serious tension with Shane McMahon, and the longer that goes on, the more likely it seems that Ambrose is being positioned as a Stone Cold Steve Austin-esque anti-authority figure. (Fiorvanti)Something is still not right about babyface Rollins. Mainly, its because he still hasnt got any comeuppance against?Triple H?for costing him the WWE Universal championship,?despite having been betrayed by his former mentor some three months ago. The longer that inexplicable wait goes on, the more Rollins credibility as Raws supposed top face suffers. Still, he is a phenom in the ring and is as good as almost anyone in the business -- and the second he gets his hands on Triple H, look for him to return to his formerly lofty position. (Atkin)Its time for a main event run for The Miz, who continues to shine within this career renaissance year. Whether that opportunity comes on the Raw roster following a trade, or back at home on SmackDown, where he recently reacquired the Intercontinental championship for the sixth time, The Mizs work has proved he deserves it. He could always talk with the best of them, but The Mizs ring work has gotten a lot better over the past 12 months. (Campbell)So, Vince McMahon and WWE finally figured out how to use Goldberg, 12 years after they messed it up the first time. Sundays finish at Survivor Series, an 86-second squash of Lesnar, was unprecedented and unexpectedly perfect. In less than two minutes, Goldberg immediately returned to the heights of his WCW heyday and joined the level of Lesnar,?The Undertaker?and?The Rock?in terms of WWE part-timers who are positioned on a wholly different plane to the main roster. Hes in ridiculous shape for a?near-50-year-old, and whats more, he has showcased a skill set on the mic -- honed during his time away working acting gigs -- that simply wasnt there before. It likely will be a brief stay on this list, given his impending inactivity, but Goldberg deserves his moment of recognition for so successfully bringing back a character many thought was finished. (Atkin)Our panel, much like the WWE Universe, is very hot and cold with Reigns. He had some great moments at Survivor Series, including a triple powerbomb as part of a brief Shield reunion, and his work with Rusev in previous weeks offered some hope that he was rebuilding his reputation among those who never really forgave him for being positioned as The Guy a little too early. But in a somewhat sloppy spot that should have been a Survivor Series highlight -- a spear on a flying Shane McMahon -- he injured his opponent and seemingly lost any trace of goodwill he had built up with the smarky portion of the audience. Hopefully a Reigns versus Owens feud will do the United States champion some good. (Rosenberg)The WWE has a history of building up some big men well and others very poorly. When it comes to Strowman, it pulled the trigger in going from jobbers as opponents to main-level talent without skipping a beat on his level of dominance. He didnt feel out of place in the highest-profile traditional Survivor Series match and, in fact, Strowman was the most physically dominant presence in a ring full of stars. He has been built perfectly, but now the biggest test lies ahead -- whether Strowman can consistently prove himself worthy of a prominent position on Raw. So far, so good.

Nike Air Max Womens Sale Yellow .com) - The Montreal Canadiens will try to halt their longest losing streak of the season when they host the struggling New York Islanders in tonights clash at the Bell Centre. Jonathan Lucroy got a deal he liked, Carlos Beltran joined him in Texas and Jay Bruce and Rich Hill also moved Monday during an 18-swap frenzy at the trade deadline.Matt Moore, Francisco Liriano and Joe Smith found new homes, too, as playoff contenders stocked up for the stretch.Thats what we play for. Those are the moments we want to be in, Moore said after NL West-leading San Francisco got the lefty from last-place Tampa Bay. For someone to reach out and come get me, its a really good feeling.Monday was the busiest deadline day since at least 1995, eclipsing the 15 deals made on the final day for non-waiver trades in 2010 and 2015, according to Major League Baseball.Teams had until 4 p.m. EDT to make trades without waivers. From now, no player can be dealt unless he goes unclaimed by everyone else.The AL West-leading Rangers made two major moves.After Lucroy used his limited no-trade clause to block a deal to Cleveland, the All-Star catcher was sent to Texas.Now, moving on to the (at)Rangers lets take this bad boy to the `ship! Really excited and cant wait to get after it! he posted on Twitter.The 30-year-old Lucroy is batting .299 with 13 homers and 50 RBI this season.Texas also got Beltran, a proven postseason star, from the New York Yankees for righty Dillon Tate, the fourth overall pick in the 2015 amateur draft, and two other pitching prospects.I think as a player, you know that this moment could happen. But when it happens, it hits you, Beltran said.Twice before in his career, Beltran was traded in midseason to a team with playoff hopes. Like the Rangers, Beltran has been to the World Series but never won the crown.The Yankees kept reworking their roster, trying to turn the best parts of a .500 team into a bright future. They had already traded relief aces Aroldis Chapman and Andrew Miller leading up to the deadline.Were kind of in unfamiliar territory with the YYankees, first baseman Mark Teixeira said.ddddddddddddThats life. I mean, weve had a nice run the last eight years, he said.As always, relievers were in demand.The Giants aimed to bolster a shaky bullpen by getting Will Smith from Milwaukee, Boston got Fernando Abad from Minnesota and the NL Central-leading Cubs obtained sidearming righty Joe Smith from the Angels.The Cubs previously got lefties Chapman and Mike Montgomery for their bullpen.That was an area we thought we could make some changes, general manager Jed Hoyer said. Adding a closer, a left-hander and then adding a guy like Smith who can be a right-handed specialist, we felt like those were areas that would improve our team and improve the mix of our bullpen.The banged-up Mets acquired Bruce, the All-Star outfielder who leads the NL with 80 RBI, from Cincinnati for infielder Dilson Herrera and minor league lefty Max Wotell.The Mets also got pitcher Jon Niese, who spent his first eight years in New York, from Pittsburgh for reliever Antonio Bastardo.The contending Los Angeles Dodgers fortified their rotation by getting Rich Hill along with outfielder Josh Reddick from Oakland for three pitching prospects.Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw is on the disabled list with back trouble, and they dont know when hell be back. The 36-year-old Hill is 9-3 with a 2.25 ERA in 14 starts and on the DL because of a blister on the middle finger of his throwing hand that hasnt healed.Toronto was busy, making three deals. A day after falling out of the AL East lead, they got Liriano from Pittsburgh.Where hes been and what hes accomplished his entire career, we feel like gives us a chance to have someone who could be pitching in Game 2, 3 or 4 of a World Series run, Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins said.
