I'm not the one who did the rankings, Marvel did, but in Sabretooth:Mary Shelley Overdrive, Sabretooth is seen ripping a 4 ton airconditioning unit out of its moorings on a rooftop and using it to body slam a couple of undead mercs. Plus, most of the writers haven't bothered trying to depict the actual upgrades in strength both Sabretooth and Wolverine underwent as part of both WeaponX projects, but it was hinted that both mutants were already superhumanly strong before the supersoldier serum experiments based on thier healing factors were used.
