After weeks of waiting to get his opportunity to compete for the NXT Championship, Velveteen Dream finally got his shot tonight against Adam Cole. While he was more than ready, circumstances out of his control prevented him from winning, as Adam Cole retained his title.
During the match, Dream looked ready to finally take down Cole and claim the championship. Late in the match, however, chaos ensued as Bobby Fish and Roderick Strong came running down to the ring in an attempt to interfere. Luckily for Dream, however, Dexter Lumus appeared from under the ring, taking down both Strong and Fish, but inadvertently knocking out the referee in the process. After that, Dream hit Cole with the Purple Rainmaker, which would have won him the match had the referee been around to count. Unfortunately, the referee didn’t come to until later, and Cole was able to superkick Dream in the confusion for the win.
