NXT Power Rankings: Asuka Gets Biggest Challenge Yet

A handful of squash matches hurt this week’s NXT, but the debut of Mickie James gave the episode at least one memorable moment.

Check out this week’s NXT Power Rankings to see how the card for NXT Toronto is shaping up and who advanced in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic.

Honorable Mention: Billie Kay and Peyton Royce: The two Aussie starlets beat the holy hell out of Liv Morgan and Aliyah this week. Even though Kay lost her match, they made a statement again that they are not to be messed with.

5: DIY: Advancing in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa are one step closer to getting another much-deserved opportunity at The Revival and the NXT Tag Team Championship.

4: Tye Dillinger: His win over Noah Potjes this week was impressive, but Bobby Roode got the last laugh with a vicious Implant DDT on the entrance ramp.

3: TJ Perkins and Kota Ibushi: No one knows how long this team will last, but they’re a lot of fun to watch.

2: Asuka: The most dominant NXT Women’s Champion ever got another big win this week on NXT, but she’ll have her hands full with Mickie James at NXT Takeover Toronto.

1: Samoa Joe: His proclamation this week that NXT Champion Shinsuke Nakamura is a scared man is a bold one. But the former TNA World Heavyweight Champion is probably the only man that can get away with saying something about the “King of Strong Style.”
