#4. Roderick Strong defeated KUSHIDA to become the new WWE NXT Cruiserweight Champion

NXT Cruiserweight Champion KUSHIDA came out to defend his title against Roderick Strong. The former NXT North American Champion started on the right foot and took KUSHIDA down.

The Time Splitter fought back and locked in the Hoverboard Lock for almost a minute, but Malcolm Bivens got the challenger's foot on the ropes to force a break-up.

Ivy Nile took out KUSHIDA while Bivens distracted the referee. The Messiah of the Backbreaker hit a running knee and End of Heartache to pick up the win and take home the NXT Cruiserweight Championship.

The contest was good, and WWE did the right thing by putting a title on Diamond Mine. Grayson Waller came out to demand an NXT Cruiserweight Championship match for next week’s show. Strong and Bivens accepted his challenge.

#3. Odyssey Jones squashed two men to make his point on WWE NXT 2.0

Andre Chase held a class on WWE NXT 2.0. He looked to teach his students how to be a winner. After some to-and-fro, Odyssey Jones decided to show Chase how to defeat two men at once.

Jones dominated his opponents and hit some big moves. He ended their misery with a second-rope splash for the win.

After the match, Chase tried to attack Jones with a steel chair. However, the massive NXT Superstar broke the chair with his hand.

The match wasn’t anything special, but it built Jones even more. He will likely be the next breakout giant in WWE.
