#4 Tian Sha dominates at NXT TakeOver: In Your House

In her NXT TakeOver debut, Xia Li demolished the brutal and powerful Mercedes Martinez. This was four years in the making, as Li reminded the WWE Universe of her embarrassing three-minute loss to Martinez at the first Mae Young Classic.

It wasn't just Xia Li who caught the eyes of NXT fans, though. Her leader, Mei Ying, destroyed Martinez in one fell swoop.

Xia Li and Boa attempted to batter Martinez with a steel chair, but she was able to fend them off and even get some revenge on the duo. But when she turned to the ramp, Mei Ying stood up, waiting for an opportunity to strike.

Martinez cautiously approached her with a chair, but it was knocked off before Ying grabbed her by the throat. Ying then, with sheer brute strength, launched her off the ramp high into the plexiglass barricade, where Martinez crumbled to the floor like yesterday's trash.

With that, Tian Sha walked away from NXT TakeOver: In Your House as a dominant force to be feared.

#3 Cameron Grimes takes a leap of faith

Cameron Grimes and LA Knight stole the show at NXT TakeOver: In Your House, didn't they? There were a lot of great moments in this one, including the terrifying ending where Knight sent Grimes careening to his doom before claiming the Million Dollar Championship for himself.

However, Grimes had another fall "from the moon" that saw him take out his rival in spectacular fashion. Knight launched Grimes into a ladder that was set up on the floor, but Grimes jumped up and began to climb the rungs.

Knight thought he got rid of Grimes when he sent the ladder down to the floor, but failed to notice Grimes leaping from it to the structure beside him. Grimes then caught Knight off-guard with a spectacular dive, firing up and making his way in the ring to try and claim the Million Dollar Legacy.
