Keith Lee, Finn Balor, and Johnny Gargano met in the ring tonight to see who would move on as NXT North American Champion and face off against Adam Cole for a chance to unify the belts. Despite the odds being stacked against him, Lee came away with the win, retaining his belt and moving on to a match with Cole in two weeks.

Things ended for Balor and Gargano when Lee was able to overcome both of their tries to take him down. After surviving a rollup attempt by Gargano, Lee quickly slammed him onto Balor, who had been left on the top rope. After landing a Big Bang Catastrophe on Gargano and going for the pin, Lee smartly rolled away as Balor landed a Coup de Grâce onto Gargano. After getting up, Lee finished things by hitting Balor with the Bang Bang Catastrophe. Now, Lee will face off against Cole on July 8, with a chance to become the NXT North American and NXT Champion.
