NXT Power Rankings: Ciampa At the Top of the Food Chain

Check out this week’s NXT Power Rankings to see who starred in a week of NXT action that set up several solid feuds and drama moving forward.

Honorable Mention: Otis Dozovic: His Chris Farley impersonation on this week’s NXT was absolutely hilarious. This guy needs to be on-screen a heck of a lot more.

5: Kassius Ohno: His win over Kona Reeves was an impressive one, but his proclamation after the match that he was out to make sure he wasn’t a doormat in NXT, was solid. He’s an indie legend for a reason and still has a ton left to give to the business.

4: The Forgotten Sons: Wesley Blake, Steve Cutler and Jackson Ryker (TNA’s Gunner): Blake is a former NXT Tag Team Champion, Cutler has a great look and has never been utilized properly and Ryker was a star in TNA, on the brink of a major push before leaving. This trio has a ton of potential. Their win over The Street Profits is just the beginning.

3: Kairi Sane: The Women’s Division in NXT isn’t as strong as it was last year at this time, but with the Mae Young Classic upon us, Sane is the face of a Division that is about to be powered by rocket fuel. A star in need of another one to tango with, she’ll have one soon enough with the return of Shayna Baszler.

2: The Velveteen Dream: A win over Johnny Gargano makes his stock higher than ever.

1: Tommaso Ciampa: The self-proclaimed “Greatest Sports Entertainer of All-Time is without a number-one contender for his title and isn’t scared to let everyone know how goddamn good he is.
