At last night’s second and final part of the NXT Great American Bash, Keith Lee defeated Adam Cole to retain his North American Championship and become the new NXT Champion.
Cole, the longest reigning NXT Champion in history, finally lost his title after a superb 404 day reign and a 20 minute main event bout.
Refreshingly, the match took place without any outside interference.
The only presence from anyone other than the two competitors say Karrion Kross along with Scarlett watching on during Lee’s ticker tape celebration to firmly establish himself as the first challenger for the new champ-champ.
It remains to be seen whether Lee will defend both belts or whether he will be forced to vacate the North American Championship.
