NXT North American Champion Keith Lee came out to address after retaining his title. Besides, Mauro showed us footage from Lee’s WWE Backstage debut from last night’s episode on FS1. Lee entered the ring while fans were chanting for him. Lee took the mic to discuss his rubber match win over Dominik Dijakovic at “Takeover: Portland”
But before he can get a word out, the music interrupts and Kona Reeves came out. Reeves entered the ring and asked for a mic, but turned around as Lee immediately knocked him out with a Pounce. Lee told the referee he can ring the bell. Reeves tried to put up a fight but Lee manhandled him for a second. He hit the Big Bang Catastrophe to get the pin and win the easy squash.
The Limitless One stood tall after the non-title bout. Dominik Dijakovic was in the ring. Dijakovic said he’s sorry but he’s not ready to move on yet. He said they both know he had Lee defeated at Takeover. Dijakovic said the top rope Spanish Fly was supposed to finish Lee but it didn’t, it just finished his lower back. He went on about if this and if that.
Lee said all he’s hearing is ifs and excuses. He said the fact is he won and he is champion. Lee raised the title and fans popped. He went on and fans chanted “fight forever!” Lee said he’s always up for a challenge and if Dijakovic can talk NXT General Manager William Regal into it, then they can fight forever. He tossed the mic and exited the ring.
