In something of a surprise, the NXT North American Championship changed hands this week when Isaiah ‘Swerve’ Scott defeated Bronson Reed in the main event of this week’s NXT.
In a match only set up earlier on the show, the leader of the Hit Row stable put away Reed with the 450 Splash after a distraction from Top Dolla and Ashantee Adonis.
The win came little over a month after Reed’s title victory over Johnny Gargano and comes amidst rumours that Reed is in line for an imminent call up to the main roster after recently wrestling supposed try out matches on Main Event.
Scott, meanwhile has now secured his first title since joining WWE in 2019. The former Shane Strickland made his NXT debut as part of the Breakout tournament two years ago, a tournament that has been announced as returning in July 2021.
