All Time NXT TOP-5

Hey all.

If we take a look about the past of NXT, there is a lot of wrestlers who had a great run in NXT and put their names on the brands.

But, if you have to take 5 names that come to mind when you see "NXT", who they will be?

I'll start with my opinion:

1) Johnny Gargano - I think this is the most first name. he earnd his "Johnny Wrestling" nickname by giving so much great matches, on TakeOver, on TV, anytime and anywhere. he was the ultimate babyface.

2) Tomasso Ciampa - One of the best heels not only in NXT but all WWE. he had a great title reign with the NXT championship but unfortunately he got injured. OFC we have to mention the great and in my opinion the best feud in NXT history - the feud with Gargano.

3) Adam Cole - he debut NXT already as a big name, but in those 2 years he proved that he deserve this big name. one of the best heels, full of chemistry, great in ring and on mic, the leader of TUE and now the NXT champion. he had so much great moments in this brand.

4) Aleister Black - so, the booking monster of NXT. he was undeafeted very long time, had great matches and amazing booking. I think he deserve a spot here.

5) so now this is the hard part, I will go with Kevin Owens. had run with the NXT title, great feud with Zayn and more, had such a great performance on the main roster as the NXT champion and much more.

Wrestlers that almost enterd the list:
Finn Balor
Velveteen Dream
Shinuske Nakamura
Sami Zayn

Sasha, Bayley, Balor, Gargano and Asuka. These five are the ones that I remember first when I think about NXT.
