NXT TOP 10: October 17, 2019

The NXT Top 10 is here for this week! How do all of your favorite NXT superstars and tag teams rank after last night’s show on USA?

Rankings are based on the last 10 weeks of NXT TV and Takeovers, with points being given for matches, wins, and titles. Points depreciate, so a win this week is worth more than a win a week ago.

NXT Champion Adam Cole is in the #1 spot again this week. He and the Undisputed Era weren’t in the ring on last night’s episode of NXT. NXT Tag Team Champs Kyle O’Reily & Bobby Fish fall two spots to #10 this week and NXT North American Champion Roderick Strong drops to #8.

That’s not to say UE wasn’t busy. Strong made his presence felt during a #1 contender match between Keith Lee and Dominik Dijakovic, attacking both men before a victor was decided. As a result, Roddy will have to defend the North American Title against both men next week.

Velveteen Dream was supposed to be in that North America Title match, but he too was brutalized by Undisputed Era and couldn’t compete. Dream falls three spots to #8 this week and may be out longer due to injury.

Matt Riddle makes a huge jump this week to #2. The King of Bros made short work of Bronson Reed on last night’s show.

Riddle unseats NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler, who drops down to #3. Baszler is looking for a new #1 contender, and that woman could be Io Sharai, who straight assaulted Kayden Carter on TV. Sharai bounces back into the Top 10 at #6.

NXT UK Champion WALTER debuts in the Top 10 this week at #7. A data error has left WALTER off of the Top 10 the last couple of weeks. His partners in Imperium were successful last night in a match against Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch.

Pete Dunne holds onto the #4 spot this week, despite a controversial loss to Damien Priest in last night’s main event. The Bruiserweight likely won’t forget the low blow, but he also may be distracted by a confrontation with Killian Dain. There’s a lot on the dude’s plate.
