NXT Power Rankings: For the Tag Teams

This was a week of build-ups, but that doesn’t mean there wasn’t some good in-ring action either.

Check out this week’s NXT Power Rankings to see what potential drama could unfold on next week’s episode of NXT.

Honorable Mention: Bull Dempsey: The NXT brass continues to feed him scraps in the form of Mojo Rawley and Dempsey continues to destroy him. Like Rawley, more time in the ring has exposed his weaknesses and his lack of a “real” finisher hurts his overall appeal. He was potential as a Mad Dog Vachon type bruiser, but needs a ton more work.

5: Bayley: After she beat Alexa Bliss this week on NXT, Bliss called out NXT Womens Champion Charlotte Flair for a rematch. That’s exactly what she got. The only question is can she become champ? Either way, NXT fans are in for a great match.

4: Tyler Breeze: He’s not the NXT Champion, but after taking out both Mojo Rawley and then Justin Gabriel this week on NXT, Breeze has proven once again he’s one of the top performers in NXT. If only the company had one more singles title, then maybe Breeze might be even more relevant.

3: Baron Corbin: Although he wasn’t in the ring this week, his first real promo showed us that he’ll have a bad ass biker-esque persona. While it was a bit of an overall letdown, it’s hard to ignore his awesome finisher and tough guy approach.

2: Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady: These guys have their act down pat. From what they do on the mic, to their chemistry in the ring, they have the potential to be NXT and WWE Tag Team Champions one day. All they need is a solid double-team finisher and they’re good to go.

1: Sin Cara and Calisto: Their win over The Ascension firmly places them atop the NXT Tag Team division. While they probably weren’t many people’s first choice to win the NXT Tag Team titles, they’ve done a good job in the ring since getting the straps.
