Keith Lee defended his NXT North American Championship tonight on NXT, taking down Cameron Grimes in a surprising back-and-forth match between both superstars. After the win, however, Lee was taken down by a surprise attack from Damian Priest, who took down Lee with a nightstick. Dominik Dijakovic came running into the ring afterwards to chase out Priest, but unfortunately for him, Lee mistook him for the man who attacked him, and delivered a brutal Spirit Bomb to Dijakovic as a result.
