As seen on the second evening dedicated to the revived historic WWE brand, Great American Bash, the North American NXT champion Keith Lee, won his long-awaited match valid for the title of NXT model champion against Adam Cole, with both belts of the wrestlers of the yellow show who had been at stake in the contest and with the mammoth black athlete of the WWE show on Wednesday night who graduated for the first time in his career as the absolute champion of NXT, for the happiness of the fans and colleagues.
After a few weeks of reign with both titles, however, Keith Lee made a sensational decision that was communicated by the same "double champion", in that of the episode of NXT that aired tonight, where Keith Lee displaced all the own fans making the North American title of the third roster of the Federation of Stamford vacant.
