In the main event of tonight’s episode of WWE NXT, a new champion was crowned.
Keith Lee defeated Roderick Strong to win the NXT North American Champion in an excellent match that saw Lee having to overcome the odds because of interference from the other members from The Undisputed Era.
Lee’s stock in the company has risen in recent months. He was put over as a big deal during the Survivor Series pay-per-view and he’s been booked as a main event level star on NXT television.
This is Lee’s first title win in WWE. The Undisputed Era was attacked by Imperium after the match to hype their match at Saturday’s Worlds Collide show.
