Check out this week’s NXT Power Rankings to see what Tag teams established themselves and earned a title shot.
Honorable Mention: Tino Sabbatelli and Riddick Moss: These guys are still mega green, but some wins over Heavy Machinery could definitely help move them up.
5: Roderick Strong: He’s lost in NXT, but can a feud with Lars Sullivan get him back in the title hunt?
4: Lacey Evans: Her heel turn adds more depth to the NXT Women’s Division, but can she hang with the likes of Kairi Sane and Ember Moon?
3: Shayna Baszler: She’s not in NXT a month and she’s already in the title picture. Expect huge things from the former MMA fighter.
2: The Authors of Pain: With a Tag Team title shot in the bag, Akam and Razar are back in control of their future for the first time in months.
1: Johnny Gargano: It’s been a long time since someone was pushed this right in NXT. If Gargano doesn’t win the NXT title, he’s already proven he’s ready for the main roster.
