2) Dean Ambrose: He came up just short in the WWE World Heavyweight Title Tournament at Survivor Series. Not deterred, Dean Ambrose set his sights elsewhere. He competed in a tag team match on Raw where he pinned Tyler Breeze following Dirty Deeds. His main reason for coming in second this week happened on Smackdown, so maybe a lot of people missed it. In a really good main event, he defeated Breeze and Dolph Ziggler to become the number one contender to Kevin Owens' WWE Intercontinental Title. Their match at Survivor Series was good and I'm betting there is something better coming down the line.
4) Bayley: We stick with one of the best female wrestlers heading into the number four spot for this week's list. Bayley had the unenviable task of wrestling the god awful Eva Marie for the NXT Women's Championship. I have to commend whoever laid out the match because they provided a TON of smoke and mirrors to work around Eva being dreadful. They had a conspiracy angle where it seemed like the WWE wanted their cookie cutter girl Eva as champion, Nia Jax got involved and it featured a few ref bumps. Bayley would succeed in retaining the belt despite all of this with a second rope Bayley to Belly. It wasn't a match I'd consider good like some people are, but it was indeed expertly booked. Bayley keeps the title again, did her best to make Eva look halfway competent in the ring and she moves into what looks like a program with Nia Jax.
5) Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson: Similar to the NXT Tag Team Title win of Blake and Murphy earlier this year, the one by Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson kind of came from out of nowhere. They dethroned the Vaudevillains a few weeks ago and this week on NXT, the Vaudevillains used their rematch clause. The match itself wasn't anything special, but it was another win for Dash and Dawson. Their old school heel tag team mentality is pretty refreshing and they look to be moving into a title defense against Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady. I've said Enzo and Cass should have won the titles a while back but with Dash and Dawson just winning them, I see the champions retaining when they match does happen.
