#5 Dexter Lumis vs. Cameron Grimes - Strap Match (NXT TakeOver: WarGames 2020)

The final blowoff in the feud between Dexter Lumis and Cameron Grimes took place at NXT TakeOver: WarGames 2020, with the two men meeting in a Strap Match. After Blindfold and Haunted House of Terrors matches, the two rivals have seen some outrageousness throughout their time going head-to-head.

The bout has to be considered their best contest, with the two men putting on a decent brawl around the ringside area and inside the ring. The use of the strap brought some unique offense from both competitors. Grimes looked to keep his distance from the always-creepy Lumis, but the strap came into play to help Dexter close the distance.

Expectations going in were low, but there is no denying that both men put in a quality effort to keep it entertaining, even if a slow start led to some fans not being drawn into the action.

The level of in-ring work picked up in the later stages, but it would be hard to deny that this was the weakest match of the NXT TakeOver: WarGames 2020 card.
