With Wrestlemania 32 a heartbeat away and TNA focusing on their new champion Drew Galloway, this week’s pro wrestling action was fever-paced and frenetic. Check out this week’s byteclay.com Pro Wrestling Power Rankings to see who else starred in the ring for the WWE, TNA and NXT.
Honorable Mention: Drew Galloway: In just a few weeks as TNA World Heavyweight Champion, Galloway has proven he’s got guts. But has he bitten off more than he can chew? So far, you’d have to say no, as he’s handled every challenge with charisma and fortitude.
5: Chris Jericho/AJ Styles: They simply have the best in-ring feud and with the continuing drama outside the ring, they should have one of the most entertaining segments at Wrestlemania 32. The perfect way to get Styles over as a legitimate threat to the WWE World Heavyweight Title, Styles is going to have the match of his life and Jericho is going to put him over, big time.
4: American Alpha/The Revival: Both teams were victorious in action this week on NXT, but both face much more difficult challenges at NXT Takeover Dallas. American Alpha has to cash in on momentum, to prove they are capable of winning the big one while Dash and Dawson need to prove their name does an adequate job of describing what they’ve done to the Tag Team Division in NXT. Either way, someone is coming out victorious and a new legacy will begin.
3: Finn Balor/Samoa Joe: Joe was victorious over Bull Dempsey this week on NXT, but the best part of his performance was the ass-kicking he and NXT Champion Finn Balor exchanged after the match. One of the best performers to ever come out of NXT, Balor is ready for the former TNA World Heavyweight Champion. It’s going to be a war.
2: Shane McMahon: In preparation for the biggest match of his career at Wrestlemania this Sunday, Shane O Mac nailed The Undertaker with a beautiful Top Rope Elbow through the RAW announce table to start this week’s show with a bang. If you weren’t excited about their match before then, you definitely are now.
1: Brock Lesnar/Dean Ambrose: Paul Heyman did a solid job of adding some last-minute hype to their match at Wrestlemania 32 this week on RAW, but Ambrose stood his ground and then some, all without saying a word to Lesnar. Make no mistake, Ambrose is a future WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
