NXT TakeOver: Keith Lee Retains North American Championship In High Flying Match

Keith Lee put his North American Championship on the line tonight as part of NXT TakeOver Portland's stacked card against Dominik Dijakovic, and it was everything you hoped it would be. The two put on a display of raw power and impressive athleticism, and they took every shot the other had. The two giants battled it out in the ring and outside of it, but only one could come out the victor and therefore the North American NXT Champion, and by the end of the match it was Keith Lee holding up the title in victory.

While the two stars were all over the ring at some points, they also traded hard-hitting chops and suplexes midway through the match, with Lee getting the better of Dijakovic at several different points in the raw power display.

Both also survived huge hits of offense from the other, including some spots on the announcer's table and the side of the ring that were amazing to watch. Eventually Lee was able to hit Dijakovic too many times, and he would claim the victory.
