NXT Power Rankings: Neville on Top, Zayn Coming Up Fast

With two championship matches and appearances by Baron Corbin and Hideo Hitomi, this past week’s NXT was a fast-paced affair that appears to move the brand forward, with the end of feuds between Charlotte and Bayley and Adrian Neville and Tyson Kidd.

Check out this week’s NXT Power Rankings to see who had the most to brag out following NXT’s Champions Week.

Honorable Mention: Bayley: She may not have beaten Flair this past week on NXT, but she continues to earn the fans’ respect. At the top of the Women’s Division in terms of fan appeal, Bayley has proven a young diva can be successful, even without the belt.

5: The Vaudevillians: Much like Bayley, Simon Gotch and Aiden English have been successful, without the NXT Tag Team strap. But unlike Bayley, they haven’t gotta an opportunity to even challenge for the straps. With a lack of credible teams in the division, it’s obvious their chance is on the way.

4: Baron Corbin: He keeps racking up wins against no-name jobbers, but it’s hard to ignore how awesome his finisher is. In order for him to be taken seriously though, he needs some wins against more established performers.

3: Hideo Itami: His war with The Ascension has just begun, but it’s obvious he needs help. IS this a good place for Devitt to make his debut?

2: Charlotte Flair: The NXT Women’s Champion simply can’t be beat. Polished in the ring and classy on the mic, she’s got a ton of potential. But with a logjam of talent in the WWE Divas division, her future seems cemented in NXT right now.

1: Adrian Neville: With another win over Tyson Kidd, Neville is free to have the angle with Sami Zayn that everybody wants to see.
