WWE NXT power rankings: Week of Dec. 4, 2019

1 of 3

Tides are shifting in NXT and alliances will be tested moving forward. The Undisputed Era holds all the gold for now but that could all change soon. For now, let’s see how the rankings shake out.

NXT Men’s division

10. Kushida

Kushida made his Full Sail return after a lengthy absence. He would defeat Cameron Grimes after Grimes took out his original opponent, Raul Mendoza. Kushida gave fans a quick reminder of how good he is in the squared circle.

9. Damien Priest

Damien Priest was set to face Killian Dane this week, but he wasn’t cleared for action. He remains in the top 10 and is expected to feud with Dane once he returns.

8. Dominick Dijakovic

Dominick Dijakovic joined his War Games teammates to face The Undisputed Era in a six-man tag. Dijakovic is hovering around the main event picture and could be the perfect rival for Roderick Strong and the North American title.

7. Killian Dane

Killian Dane laid out an open challenge and was met by a recent rival, Pete Dunne. Dane exacted his revenge in picking up a win over the Bruiserweight. Things are trending up for the Beast of Belfast.

T-6. Roderick Strong/Matt Riddle

Strong and Riddle share the sixth spot this week. Strong took a loss with his Undisputed Era partners. While Riddle renewed an old rivalry with Kassius Ohno, who made his return to Full Sail. Riddle dominates that feud and is now 4-0 versus Ohno.


5. Lio Rush

The man of the hour will be in action next week versus Angel Garza. Rush will defend his cruiserweight title for the fifth time since becoming champion. This will be the match of the night guaranteed.

4. Tomasso Ciampa

Ciampa drops out of the top three by no fault of his own this week. The face of NXT has looked strong at every turn but now faces stiff competition for rights to an NXT title shot. His quest to retain goldie may have taken a detour.

3. Finn Balor

Finn made it clear last week that he shares no alliances. His purpose is to become the NXT champion again. He’s made his presence felt each week at Full Sail though this time he was met with opposition in a BIG way.

2. Keith Lee

It’s basking season. There’s no superstar in the entire company who’s hotter than Keith Lee is right now. Lee destroyed the Undisputed Era single-handedly then pinned the NXT champion in the main event. He’s earned himself an opportunity to become number one contender against Adam Cole December 18th. It’s hard to see him losing next week.

1. Adam Cole

Cole had an unbelievable November for the NXT brand. His days as champ may be coming to an end. Cole has three legitimate threats to his title reign in Ciampa, Balor, and Lee. If the end of the road is near for Adam Cole, he has a good case as the NXT superstar of the year.
