You now have no choice but to bask in the glory of the limitless Keith Lee. The 2019 NXT Breakout Star followed up on a year of excellence with the black-and-yellow brand by winning the NXT North American Championship this Wednesday night, defeating the Undisputed Era’s Roderick Strong.
This is Lee’s very first championship in WWE. Prior to signing he held the short-lived WWN Championship for EVOLVE’s parent company, as well as the PWG World Championship, which he won from Chuck Taylor and quickly dropped to the current NXT UK Champion, WALTER.
Lee’s victory in Wednesday’s NXT main event also ends the Undisputed Era’s monopoly over all the brand’s championship gold. Although, to be fair, you could also argue that particular ship set sail when the Cruiserweight Championship was brought under the NXT umbrella for the USA Network era.
