In a battle between two of the most popular names in NXT, Drew McIntyre and Bobby Roode, it was the former who came out on top to become the new North American Champion.
The wwe nxt breakout tournament 2021 is a new North American Championship that will be introduced to the WWE.
The main event of tonight’s NXT was a championship match for the North American Championship, and it lived up to the anticipation. Santos Escobar, a longtime adversary of North American Champion Isaiah Swerve Scott, had a role in the elimination of the other members of Hit Row before to the bout. Swerve didn’t waste any time in assaulting Escobar, attacking him even before he entered the arena. Swerve continued his attack after the bell rang, knocking Escobar to the outside of the ring and then tinkering with the turnbuckle before retargeting Escobar.
Escobar responded with a huge kick, a whip into the ropes, and a big knee to the back, but he kicked out of the pin attempt. Swerve continued the assault and tried for another pin, but Escobar kicked out once again.
Serve locked in another hold on Escobar and attacked him in the back with chops, but Escobar escaped and knocked Swerve’s feet out from under him, sending him back first onto the ring apron. Swerve was thrown over the announce table as a result of his dive.
Swerve is then thrown knee-first against the steel stairs by Escobar, who then rolls him into the ring. He then locked in a hold that targeted Swerve’s neck and head, followed by another that targeted Swerve’s legs and knees. Swerve, on the other hand, had the ropes and was on his way to breaking the grip.
Escobar landed punches and chops before charging at Swerve’s back. Swerve’s arms and back are being strained as he is trapped in another grip. Swerve was Power Bombed by Escobar, who then booted him in the back hard, sending him reeling. Swerve’s arms were yanked again, and Escobar landed a knee in his back, following which they exchanged punches and chops.
Swerve struck Escobar with a clothesline, then a charge, before diving off the top rope for an elbow. Escobar, on the other hand, countered his next move and tried for the pin, but Swerve kicked him out. Escobar then climbed to the top rope and sent Swerve falling to the mat with a powerful knee.
He climbed to the top rope once again to pay homage to Eddie Guerrero with an incredible splash, and he nearly got the victory until Swerve kicked out at the last minute. Swerve knocked Escobar’s feet out from under him, scooped him up, and smashed him into the ringside. Swerve hit a 450, but Escobar got both knees up and tried for the pin, but Swerve kicked out again.
Legado then went into the ring’s side, but Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams arrived to level the odds and dealt with Legado. Swerve was hoisted by Escobar after he landed a huge knee, but he broke free and lifted Escobar and smashed him into the unprotected turnbuckle. Swerve is still your North American Champion thanks to the pin that followed.
At least, we thought, until Hayes held Swerve’s palm up and unexpectedly clotheslined him. He then pulled out his contract from winning the Breakout tournament and paid it in right now, thus turning this into a championship match. Swerve battled back the first try, but a fresh Hayes was too much for him in the end, and Hayes triumphed and was named the new North American Champion after a tremendous kick.
