NXT Power Rankings: Nakamura King of 1016

Check out this week’s NXT Power Rankings to see who ended 2016 with gold around their waist and more.

Honorable Mention: Peyton Royce and Billie Kay: The toughest female duo in NXT, these two deserve a shot against Asuka.

5: Oney Lorcan: His win over Andrade “Cien” Almas to end 2016 is a great way to build him as a part of the promotion’s deep mid-card.

4: Asuka: Who can beat her?

3: DIY: Johnny Gargano and Tomaso Ciampa: Successfully defending their titles against Tajiri and Akira Tozawa to end 2016, DIT is proving they are ready to move to the RAW or Smackdown roster.

2: Samoa Joe: Even in defeat, he’s got nothing to be ashamed of- it’s just time for him to head to the main roster.

1: Shinsuke Nakamura: His win over Samoa Joe in Japan to end 2016 is the beginning of what will be a long run as champion. With Joe out of the picture, “The King of Strong Style” can begin to assert his dominance on NXT. The only question is who’s left?
