Title change on NXT's USA Network premiere


Roderick Strong has won the NXT North American title, giving all four members of the Undisputed Era championship gold.

Strong captured the title from Velveteen Dream during the premiere episode of NXT on the USA Network. The two headlined the first hour and had largely a back and forth contest until the other three members of the Undisputed Era came out to ringside. Following a ref bump, the three entered the ring to interfere. 

Dream initially fought them off, but after kicking out of one End of Heartache, fell to a second after Adam Cole superkicked Dream. All four members of the Undisputed era posed with their titles to end the first hour of NXT.

Velveteen Dream won the title on January 30, defeating Johnny Gargano on an episode of NXT. He held the title for 231 days.

While tonight’s episode of NXT only lasted one hour on USA Network, the show is continuing for a second hour on the WWE Network. The show will air both hours on the USA Network starting on October 2.
