In the main event of WWE NXT TakeOver: XXX, Keith Lee put his NXT Championship on the line against Karrion Kross, with Scarlett watching at ringside.

Lee got the upper hand in the opening seconds with clubbing blows to the body. He followed up with a running cross-body. Lee hurt his arm on a spot at ringside when his arm was rammed into the barricade thanks to a kick from Kross. Kross continued to work on that arm during the match.

At one point, Kross had a triangle armbar locked in but Lee was able to power out by lifting and slamming Kross but Lee's arm was clearly banged up. Lee hit Kross with some shots to the head and a powerslam before trying for the pin. Kross kicked out of the pin attempt at the last second.
