9. Hideo Itami
Remember what I said about ROH-style main events? That applies here, too.
AJ Styles vs. the former KENTA has all the makings for an NXT live-special main event. It’s the kind of match that could legitimately main event any show, with an amazing combination of technical wrestling, sick strikes, and high spots.
If all you know of Itami is what you’ve seen in NXT… you haven’t seen anything yet. And you won’t see it all until you see him mix it up with the Phenomenal One.
