NXT Takeover: In Your House – Finn Balor Makes History, Keith Lee Backs Black Lives Matter Movement

NXT took over Full Sail University for the first time on pay-per-view since 2016 tonight as they presented In Your House. It was another show that was packed with action from the third brand of WWE, and one that created some memorable moments.

Finn Balor was the only surviving star from the last pay-per-view at Full Sail from four years ago and he marked the occasion by defeating Damien Priest.

Balor’s victory was a historic one since it now means that The Demon King has won more matches at Takeover events than any other star in history, with 11 total wins.

Keith Lee defended his North American Championship against Johnny Gargano at Takeover and as part of his entrance, The Limitless star decided to pay a tribute of his own.

America has been rocked since the death of George Floyd just over a week ago and the Black Lives Matter campaign has since taken over the country.

The protests have since sparked riots all over the world and it appears that even the talent in WWE has been given the nod when it comes to including the campaign on WWE TV.

Keith Lee gave the movement his backing as part of tonight’s show when he wore “Black Lives Matter” on both his entrance jacket and the shorts that he wrestled in.

Lee was able to get the better of Gargano and retained his NXT North American Championship as part of the show. The Rebel Heart could have become the first-ever two-time North American Champion but it wasn’t to be tonight in Orlando.

The show kicked off with a highly competitive six-woman tag team match that saw Tegan Nox finally get the better of her former friend Dakota Kai as Nox, Mia Yim and Shotzi Blackheart took on Kai, Raquel Gonzalez, and Candice LeRae.
