A new North American Champion was crowned in a five-way ladder match at NXT Stand & Deliver.

Cameron Grimes won the North American title by defeating Carmelo Hayes, Santos Escobar, Solo Sikoa, and Grayson Waller at Saturday's WrestleMania weekend NXT event. Hayes was champion heading into Stand & Deliver.

After Escobar took out Hayes with a Phantom Driver near the end of the match, Grimes flew in with a Cave-In stomp on Escobar. Grimes then climbed a ladder and retrieved the North American title belt.

Aside from the Million Dollar Championship, this is the first title that Grimes has held in WWE.

During the build to Stand & Deliver, Grimes initially failed to qualify for the North American title ladder match. He then got one more chance to get a spot in the title bout, defeating Roderick Strong and A-Kid in a last-chance qualifying match.

Grimes said he wanted to be on Stand & Deliver to make good on a promise that he made to his late father. Grimes said the last thing he got to tell his father was that he signed with NXT and was going to become a champion.
