Damian Priest wins the title

On tonight’s NXT TakeOver XXX event, a new NXT North American Champion was crowned.

Damian Priest won the vacant NXT North American Championship in a Ladder Match also involving Johnny Gargano, Velveteen Dream, Cameron Grimes, and Bronson Reed.

The North American Championship was vacated on the July 22 episode of NXT. Keith Lee held the title along with the NXT Championship and decided to vacate the North American Title to open up opportunities to others.

The following excerpt is from this evening’s recap of NXT TakeOver XXX:

Reed starts to climb the ladder and reaches for the title, but Grimes throws the tiny ladder into his head from earlier in the match. Grimes climbs the ladder and has his hands on the North American Championship. Gargano knocks Grimes off and reaches for the title. Priest climbs and grabs Gargano by the throat. Gargano unlocks the belt, but Priest is holding the title. They’re both hanging by the title on the ladder. Gargano is the first to fall, and Priest is left holding the belt. Priest wins the North American Championship!
