Tag Team Weekly Roundup and Power Ratings: Where does NXT’s stacked men’s tag scene go next?

No matter who won the fatal four-way for the NXT men's tag championship, we would have an interesting direction ahead. New Day continuing to raise the game of the whole division, Pretty Deadly rising outrageously back atop the mountain or the Chase U underdog story would have all worked.

But one thing Gallus has going for them is being a beefy heel team with a lot of great babyfaces to chase (or Chase) the championship.

Fan-favorites Chase U may well be the first up, and the build toward a match could be fun. Any team in the four-way would be a fun rematch, but New Day are likely going back to regular main-roster duty and as enjoyable as Pretty Deadly are, heel-heel is not ideal.

But there's no shortage of face teams. The Creed Brothers are always worthy of a title shot, but they're rather occupied with Indus Sher. Josh Briggs and Brooks Jensen might want to get gold to match the new titles of their lady friends. Edris Enofe and Malik Blade seem to get better and better and just need the right push. Recently minted babyfaces Tony D'Angela and Stacks Lorenzo probably have to deal with Dijak's hard justice but could be in the running down the line.

It's not like there's a shortage of heel teams that could get in the game if NXT keeps doing multiman matches. The aforementioned Indus Sher would provide a beef-fest. The Dyad are always solid and fluid. And given the depth in NXT, any number of potential teams are possible.

From time to time, NXT puts together a stacked tag division. This is one of those times, and it's a good thing.

The following Tag Team Power Rankings take into account wins, power and placement of segments, recentness of appearances, creative direction and momentum for teams and factions.

WWE Tag Team Power Rankings through Feb. 4:

1. The Bloodline (last week: 1)

Pro: They still hold all the top men's singles and tag team titles on the brand.
Con: Jey is still missing and Roman Reigns will have to hold off a hot act in Sami Zayn.

2. Damage CTRL (2)

Pro: Iyo Sky and Dakota Kai remain women's tag champs and Iyo topped Candice LeRae on Raw as the numbers game stayed in their favor.
Con: Bayley might be trying to figure out how to get her backup into the steel cage match with Becky Lynch.

3. Gallus (not ranked)

Pro: The new NXT men's tag champs showed in NXT UK they could handle the straps well.
Con: A lot of great teams are very deserving of getting next.

4. Fallon Henley, Kiana James, Josh Briggs and Brooks Jensen (not ranked)

Pro: Henley and James (or Cash Bar, if you prefer) picked up a surprising win to take women's tag gold.
Con: Are Fallon and Josh OK with all this cheating to win? We know Brooks is too smitten, but still.

5. Judgment Day (3)

Pro: Rhea is the shining star here, sizing up Charlotte Flair and the SmackDown women's title. Finn Balor got a nice spotlight in facing Cody Rhodes in a good Raw main event.
Con: Finn couldn't win, although Edge and Beth Phoenix were partly to blame -€” which also means the faction will have to deal with the power couple.

6. Braun Strowman and Ricochet (7)

Pro: Won the SmackDown tag title tournament for a chance at the belts.
Con: A thrown-together team doesn't seem like the choice to end the record-setting run of The Usos.

7. Viking Raiders (not ranked)

Pro: Picked up a win over Butch and Ridge Holland and being in a program with Drew McIntyre and Sheamus is a step up.
Con: Hard to see them winning that program.

8. Chase U (not ranked)

Pro: Wonderful to see they are a popular road team and potentially good #1 contenders. Picking up a win in a fun triple threat NXT main event was a big moment too.
Con: Unable to get the W and the tag gold.

9. New Day (5)

Pro: Gotta give it to Ya Boys, they worked wonders for the NXT men's tag division in their time at the top.
Con: They put over Gallus as new champs.

10. Indus Sher (not ranked)

Pro: Made a big return to the ring with a win over The Creed Brothers.
Con: The win involved a malfunction at the junction with Ivy Nile, so you know the brothers will want another match.

Best tag segment of the week: The NXT men's title fatal four-way featured some great action, spots and character work and makes one want to watch it back to get everything that happened. And, of course, gave us new champs.

Grade: A

Two title changes in NXT and intrigue for the main roster men's belts were enough good stuff to earn a sterling grade.
