The NXT North American Championship Ladder Match at NXT: TakeOver XXX guaranteed a new title holder, after Keith Lee vacated the belt after winning the NXT Championship.

The Ladder Match included a total of six ladders – seven if you include the miniature one – and some hideous landings from all men involved.

However, it was Damian Priest who managed to leave with the championship belt and win the title for the first time.

The end of the match came when Priest and Johnny Gargano both managed to unhook the belt and grab an end each. However, it was Priest who managed to hold on and get Gargano to lose his balance, leaving him as the only one on the ladder with the title.

With all four other contestants in the match also putting their bodies on the line so much in a strong showing by all involved, there will be no shortage of challengers for Priest’s newly-won belt.
