And the NEW North American Champion is...

06/30/2021

Isaiah "Swerve" Scott defeated Bronson Reed to become the new NXT North American Champion.  He becomes the tenth title holder in the history of WWENXT and the twelfth changeover.  This was the fourth North American Championship match and it was so deserving for Scott.  

However, the match was not a clean fight as Ashante Thee Adonis attacked Reed from behind without the referee noticing.  Reed sent Top Dolla and Adonis through the screen barrier windows.  The distraction gave Swerve an opportunity to recover and take advantage by hitting the 450 splash for the win.  

The Hit Row Records are bound to destiny as they start their title run with Swerve as a champion.  Can they become the second faction in NXT history to capture all the gold?  Adonis and Top Dolla can surprise the WWE Universe for a shot at the tag team titles.  And B-Fab can add the exclamation mark by winning the NXT Women's Championship.  

For Bronson Reed, could he earn a shot of redemption and win back the North American title?  Only Johnny Gargano has repeatedly won the title (three-times).  On the other hand, this can be the last of Reed in NXT.  He squared off against Drew Gulak at WWE Main Event.  He could receive a call-up to the main roster.
