Johnny Gargano Def. Leon Ruff And Damian Priest To Become The New NXT North American Champion (www.wwe.com)

In a fast-paced Triple Threat Match, Johnny Gargano overcame Leon Ruff and Damian Priest to recapture the NXT North American Championship in controversial fashion.

Ruff stormed out of the starting blocks to dispel Gargano’s notion that he was a “joke” and show that he was a true champion that deserved respect. After twice warning the titleholder to stay out of the action, Priest hurled Ruff through the barricade with the Razor’s Edge. The move created a momentary one-on-one between Priest and Gargano.  

After Gargano and Priest exchanged the advantage with a flurry of attacks, Ruff heroically remerged to throw himself into the action!

In one standout moment, Gargano even tied up Priest in the ropes of the second ring, but Damian eventually used his size to fight free. 

Then, a barrage of ghost-faced assailants once again emerged to attack Priest. Priest fought them off and reengaged his opponents. But just when it looked like Priest might reign supreme on Gargano with the Reckoning, another masked assailant emerged on the apron and smashed Priest with a pipe. Gargano took advantage by blasting Ruff with One Final Beat to regain the title! 

After the match, the masked man unveiled himself as none other than Austin Theory!
