Check out this week’s NXT Live Power Rankings to see who starred in an episode of NXT that did plenty of scene-setting for NXT Takeover.
Honorable Mention: Hideo Itami: His feud with Kassius Ohno has the potential to be an excellent one that can shore up the mid-card.
5: Bobby Fish: Although he lost his debut against Aleister Black, Fish proved he belongs. The former ROH Tag Team and TV Champion is an awesome addition to the NXT roster.
4: Johnny Gargano: Impassioned promo proved that Gargano is ready for a serious run as a singles competitor.
3: The Authors of Pain: Can anyone beat these guys?
2: Aleister Black: His win over Bobby Fish proves he’s more than ready for an NXT Title shot.
1: Bobby Roode: He’s going to have his hands full at NXT Takeover against either Killian Dane or Drew McIntyre, but if anyone can handle the pressure, it’s the Glorious one.
