TakeOver Results: NXT North American Championship



While the crowd was still buzzing over the appearance of Matt Riddle (check that out here), it was time for our next title match at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV.

After Roderick Strong and Kyle O’Reilly successfully retained the NXT Tag Team Titles in the opening contest (read about that here), Adam Cole looked to keep another piece of gold in The Undisputed Era as Ricochet challenged for the NXT North American Championship. Cole looked to keep the pace slow to begin, grounding the high-flyer with a series of grapples and holds. ‘The One And Only’ showed he was more than just an aerial artist though, saving his gravity defying tactics before pulling them out to keep Cole off-balance.

Ricochet finally got caught however, looking for a springboard moonsault and getting clocked with a superkick in mid-air. Cole would follow with a suplex into a neckbreaker that shockingly didn’t put ‘The One And Only’ away and from that point on, the match was very back-and-forth with both guys hitting big maneuvers. Cole would attempt the running knee to polish him off, but got caught himself and the challenger ascended to the top turnbuckle for the 630 Splash. The champion wisely would roll to the apron thinking he was safe, but instead got dumped to the floor by a leaping hurricanrana.

After tossing Cole back inside, ‘The One And Only’ would go back upstairs and score with the 630 Splash to procure the championship.
