Keith Lee defeated Adam Cole in the main event of NXT The Great American Bash Night Two to capture the NXT Championship, and retain his NXT North American Championship.
Lee became the first-ever superstar to hold both the titles at the same time, while he joined Cole and Johnny Gargano as the only superstars to capture both the titles.
Lee picked up the NA title in January this year, after defeating Cole’s Undisputed Era teammate, Roderick Strong. Lee ended Cole’s 403 day-run as the NXT Champion after delivering his Big Bang Catastrophe in the main event.
The entire Undisputed Era stayed off the main-event as Lee and Cole fought a fair battle with no commercials for both the titles.
Lee defeated Finn Balor and Johnny Gargano two weeks ago in a triple threat for the NA title, and earned himself a shot at Cole. The match was taped last week, which was spoiled by Indus Sher’s Saurav Gurjar on Instagram. Although NXT stars tried to cover-up the big reveal, it played out in the same fashion.
Karrion Kross and Scarlett Bordeaux looked on as Lee celebrated in the ring, indicating a feud between the two stars soon. Kross and Bordeaux have been eyeing Cole for some time, and now will shift their attention to Lee.
