Tonight’s episode of NXT opened up with a match between Leon Ruff and Johnny Gargano, as Gargano looked to reclaim his hold on the NXT North American Championship that he lost last week. Instead, thanks to Damian Priest, Gargano once again came away without the belt, as he won the match via disqualification and was unable to get the title.
During their match, Priest made his way down to ringside, and yanked Ruff out of the ring after Gargano landed his finisher on him. After apologizing to Ruff, Priest laid him out with a vicious punch, ending the match and causing Ruff to retain his title. After the match, Ruff wasn’t too pleased, slapping Priest and telling him that he’s not a joke.
