10 Best Rivalries In NXT History

Which feuds have defined the black and yellow brand since its inception in 2012?


This isn't exactly a hot take anymore, but NXT is the best.

Since its inception in 2012, WWE's so-called "developmental brand" has outdone its main product at pretty much everything. In-ring quality, characters, commentary. When it comes to professional wrestling's fundamentals in the modern era, it's almost a guarantee that NXT have done it substantially better than Raw or Smackdown Live.

One of the biggest differences between NXT and the main roster is the sheer amount of incredible feuds the developmental show has given its fans over its near- seven year existence.

Whilst the main roster drags feuds out way beyond their natural life or kill once-promising rivalries with dumb angles and bad booking, NXT always seems to deliver exactly the right ingredients to build timeless feuds time and time again.

But what are some of NXT's best rivalries? Who are Full Sail's Rock and Stone Cold Austin? Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels? Baron Corbin and Braun Strowman?

There have been countless incredible feuds to choose from and - as any good "best" field should be - was a hard list to make.
