Tonight's edition of WWE NXT emanates from Full Sail University and is headlined by Io Shirai defending her NXT Women's Championship against Tegan Nox.
Before the show begins, let's see what tonight has in-store for us!
- Io Shirai Defends The NXT Women's Championship Against Tegan Nox
- NXT & North American Champion, Keith Lee Addresses The NXT Universe
- Damian Priest Looks For Revenge Against Cameron Grimes
The show begins with NXT and North American Champion, Keith Lee making his way down to the ring. Lee asks the ring announcer, Alicia Taylor, if she'd announce him as the double champion one more time, to which she obliges. Lee then says it's surely been tough times for not just him, but everyone around the world recently, but last week was a moment that was beautiful and nobody can take that away from him. Lee says he stands before you as not only the North American Champion...but as well as the NXT Champion. He says he's enjoyed the feat enough and now it's time to get back to reality. He says he has an entire locker room after him. Lee acknowledges his longtime trainer, Tim Brooks who's been not only an trainer but almost like a father for him...he then thanks the NXT universe for their 'unbelievable support'. Lee says there's one more person that he needs to thank, who's played an integral part in his success...he says he'll like to speak with his number 1 'frenemy'...Dominik Dijakovic, who makes his way down to the ring. Dijakovic says he's happy to celebrate with Lee but doesn't know why he's out here...Lee says the best way to represent the championships is with healthy competition. Lee says he spoke with NXT General Manager, William Regal and they both agreed that the first challenger for BOTH championships should be Dominik Dijakovic. Dijakovic asks Lee when does he want to do this...Lee says he's already in his gear, so why not tonight? Dijak looks a bit reserved at first but Lee tells him to just say yes...Dijak smiles and says yes and it appears as if we have a double title match between the 2 behemoths, later tonight, as we head to a commercial break.
