Keith Lee has just really gotten into the swing of things with his first run as North American Champion, but it has not been really made clear who the main contender of the title will be going forward. But as the road to Wrestlemania weekend continues, each new NXT episode will be clearing up the path to which opponent Keith Lee will be taking on next. One of the major upstarts has been Cameron Grimes, and he got his opportunity at the title with the opening match of the March 11th broadcast. Unfortunately for Grimes, it wasn't his day.
Grimes put up a major fight with some impressive movements that showed how he could keep up with the North American Champion, but Keith Lee's extra bit of ring experience and endurance helped him win at the end of the day. But that wasn't all as during Lee's moment of celebration in the ring, Damian Priest jumped in and struck him in the back with a baton.
Lee didn't see who attacked him before Priest slithered away, but before he got away completely Lee was saved by Dominik Dijakovic. But Dijakovic was briefly taken in by the sight of the North American Championship title on the mat and decided to pick it up and inspect it. Seeing this, Lee was angered and decided to attack Dijakovic. This certainly threw fans for a loop as the two seemed to be getting along after their string of intense matches, but perhaps Lee might have blamed Dijakovic for the sneak attack?0comments
