NXT Power Rankings: Sanity Reigns, Nakamura and Strong Dominate

Shinsuke Nakamura is back and better than ever, but Joe wants blood. Add in another Sanity appearance and the debuts of Roderick Strong and Otis Dozovic ensured an excellent episode of NXT.

Check out this week’s NXT Power Rankings to see who advanced in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic and more.

Honorable Mention: Peyton Royce and Billie Kay: Their continued attacks towards the lesser beings in the NXT Women’s Division is exactly what it needs to be entertaining. With beauty and ferocity, the Aussie pair are a dangerous duo.

5: Roderick Strong: A more than solid debut from the former ROH Champion who showcased an awesome blend of striking, speed and duplexes.

4: Bobby Roode: His win over Sean Maluta this week on NXT was a glorious one and his ongoing feud with Tye Dillinger will be an awesome contest and give NXT’s mid-card plenty of depth.

3: Sanity: Pretty crazy to think that Nikki Cross may be the most dangerous member of this faction, especially considering the resume of Eric Young. Either way, they’ve been a ton of fun to watch over the past two weeks.

2: Samoa Joe: He wants his title back and will get his opportunity at NXT Takeover Toronto.

1: Shinsuke Nakamura: Destroying Patrick Clark this week was easy and fending off Samoa Joe made sure that everyone knows Nakamura is back to his old self.
