The main event of tonight's NXT did not disappoint, as North American Champion Keith Lee put his belt up for grabs in a match against Dominik Dijakovic and Damian Priest. Lee, Dijakovic, and Priest are well acquainted with each other, and it showed tonight, as each star was prepared for the other's patented moves. Each star had their moment to shine, and all three showcased their impressive athleticism throughout the night. That said, there could only be one winner be the end of the night, and after a hard-fought and physical match, it was none other than Lee, who retained his North American Championship.
There were a number of standout moments, including when Dijakovic held Lee up on his shoulders and Priest leaped off the top rope and kicked Lee and Dijakovic off their feet.
Both Priest and Dijakovic managed to lay out Lee with a power slam, and they would then take the fight to each other until Lee caught Priest and then used him as a weapon, bashing Dijakovic on the ground with Priest's body.
It looked like Lee would lose his title, but when Priest brought in the nightstick he took out Dijakovic, followed by Lee sending him barreling out of the ring and clearing the way for him to pin Dijakovic.
