Can Keith Lee become the new NXT North American Champion?


08:48 (IST)23 JAN 2020

Well... it's time for me to call it a night for the time being. Come on back... well, I mean, come back for all sorts of WWE news and features... but I'll also be covering NXT TakeOver: Worlds Collide this Saturday, just like I did NXT tonight. Actually, I'll probably do a better job. I was trying to make dinner for a four year old at the same time as this. But, I stuck with it, because you guys are worth it!

Thanks for tuning in and I'll see you guys soon!

08:41 (IST)23 JAN 2020

What a great show. Let's get the match results really quick.

Please hold.

08:41 (IST)23 JAN 2020

Crowd chanting bad words because, you know, it's a wrestling crowd

08:40 (IST)23 JAN 2020

PIER SIX BRAWL (whatever that means)!!

08:40 (IST)23 JAN 2020

And Imperium finally heads to the ring for revenge.

08:38 (IST)23 JAN 2020


RESULT: Keith Lee defeats Roderick Strong for the NXT North American Championship

08:37 (IST)23 JAN 2020

Beth Phoenix with the random Star Wars reference. She's clearly learning how to be an awesome announcer from Mauro

08:36 (IST)23 JAN 2020

Lee makes it to the ropes.

08:36 (IST)23 JAN 2020

Ankle lock on Lee by Strong in the middle of the ring.

08:36 (IST)23 JAN 2020

Lee heads back up for his moonsau... and still gets knocked down.


08:35 (IST)23 JAN 2020

Lee punches his own ankle back into shape and then CHECKS LEE RIGHT OUT OF THE RING AND INTO THE UE

08:34 (IST)23 JAN 2020

Second rope Olympic Slam by Strong and LEE STILL KICKS OUT.

08:33 (IST)23 JAN 2020

Lee is heading up to the top for a moonsau... nah, Strong attacks him before he can.

08:32 (IST)23 JAN 2020

08:31 (IST)23 JAN 2020

Adam Cole distracts the ref while Bobby Fish kicks Lee in the ankle.

Strong goes goes the pin but only gets a 2.

08:31 (IST)23 JAN 2020

Strong hits the ropes and Lee picks him up with one hand, tosses him in the air, and slams him down!


08:30 (IST)23 JAN 2020

The break ends and, like clockwork, Lee picks up Strong for a powerslam.

08:29 (IST)23 JAN 2020

Chances are, Strong is going to keep working over Lee's ankle during the break, so if you need a snack... there you go.

08:28 (IST)23 JAN 2020

We go to break, but it's one of those picture-and-picture deals, this time with the "Vaping Is Bad" ad with that British magician.

08:27 (IST)23 JAN 2020

Strong is working on Lee's ankle, although Lee gets a moment of respite by kicking him out of the....

DANG IT, MAURO! I was typing that!

08:24 (IST)23 JAN 2020

Strong puts Lee's ankle between the steel steps and the ring apron and KICKS it. 

08:24 (IST)23 JAN 2020

AND we're back! And... none of you guys responded. I'm disappointed in all of you.

But not in Keith Lee, who is still in control... well, for a moment.

The UE distract Lee, who steps outside to try and intimidate the other three members. When he gets back in the ring, though, Strong drop kicks him in that injured ankle.

08:20 (IST)23 JAN 2020

As we go to break, lemme ask ya guys this - what are the odds of Imperium interfering in this match for revenge?

Tweet me at @HeyImKevinSully.


08:17 (IST)23 JAN 2020

08:16 (IST)23 JAN 2020

Mauro Ranallo with a Ken Jennings/Jeopardy! reference. I love it.

Sincerely... never change, Mauro. I love you.

08:15 (IST)23 JAN 2020

Announcers make a point to bring up - significantly - that Lee refused medical attention after the attack by the ERA on his ankle last week. Think that'll play a part?

08:14 (IST)23 JAN 2020

Hey, Keith's Titantron video spelled "Legion" wrong!

Oh, wait.

08:14 (IST)23 JAN 2020

08:10 (IST)23 JAN 2020

Commercial break time and then we're on to our main event and... man... it's gonna be so good.

08:10 (IST)23 JAN 2020

Ha ha ha Dunne said "bro"

I love this team.

08:07 (IST)23 JAN 2020

Dunne and Riddle celebrate by the Dusty Cup trophy, and the Grizzled Young Veterans come out to, you know, say mean things to them.

08:06 (IST)23 JAN 2020

That was a hell of a match. I had the hardest time keeping up with it, but it was worth it.

08:05 (IST)23 JAN 2020

Dunne and Riddle win! And without interference from the Undisputed ERA!

Hot tag by Dunne!

07:59 (IST)23 JAN 2020

07:58 (IST)23 JAN 2020

07:52 (IST)23 JAN 2020

Dunne tags in Matt "Bo Derek hair" Riddle and keep up the pressure, but Eichner manages to tag in to Barthel.

07:51 (IST)23 JAN 2020

Dunne and Eichner start the match off, but Fabian tags in Marcel quickly.

07:48 (IST)23 JAN 2020

Riddle's hair looks dumb.

07:47 (IST)23 JAN 2020

It's time for the BROserweights (that's what they call themselves) to head to the ring and get going in this Dusty Cup semi-final match,

07:42 (IST)23 JAN 2020

Tegan Nox and Dakota Kai go head to head next week.

And the team of Matt Riddle and Pete Dunne face Imperium in another Dusty Cup semi-final match.

I wonder if the Undisputed ERA will get involved in that? Nah. Highly unlikely.,

07:40 (IST)23 JAN 2020

07:39 (IST)23 JAN 2020

Shotzi goes for a top rope senton but Shayna moves and catches her into the... karakuna?... clutch. Shotzi tries to escape but eventually has to tap.

And Shayna isn't letting go.

07:36 (IST)23 JAN 2020

Baszler attempts the [Instert Name Here] Clutch, but Blackheart pushes her into the turnbuckles and Shotzi is mounting some really impressive offense here.
