On the latest episode of WWE NXT, the North American Championship was put on the line. Bronson Reed managed to defeat Johnny Gargano, to be crowned as the new Champion. This is Reed’s first-ever title on the black-and-gold brand.
The steel cage match had some fast-action and high-impact spots, which is a common sight on WWE NXT TakeOver shows. Austin Theory was constantly at the ringside and tried to help Gargano, but The Colossal One managed to overcome both of them and has now become the ninth wrestler to hold the title.
Reed was visibly emotional after the match. It took him 14 years to fulfill his dream, and he celebrated the moment with his wife.
