Keith Lee continues to make a dominant run as NXT North American Champion, putting on a show during tonight’s episode of NXT in a win against Damian Priest.
During the match, Lee was tested by Priest, who had been feuding with him for the last couple of weeks. However, things changed after Priest brought both a nightstick and the North American Championship into the ring. Priest attempted to hit Lee with the nightstick, but Lee was able to stop it in a massive show of power. Catching the nightstick, Lee quickly reversed things, landing two power bombs onto Priest for the pinfall victory.
