NXT North American Champion Adam Cole def. Wolfgang
Mauro Ranallo said it best when he described Adam Cole’s NXT North American Title defense against Wolfgang as a “tough night at the office.” The Last King of Scotland punished The Panama City Playboy with an unrelenting onslaught, but Cole proved up to the task. As the battle wore on, Cole’s stamina and wherewithal became increasingly important. When Wolfgang took too long to scale the turnbuckles, the Undisputed ERA frontman met him with a superkick; when Wolfgang went high-risk in search of the Howling, Cole saw it coming and got his knees up in time. After that vital error, Wolfgang was felled by a brainbuster onto the knee and Cole’s Last Shot.
It wasn’t easy and it wasn’t pretty, but Cole made it out of Royal Albert Hall with the NXT North American Title still in his grasp.
