Keith Lee def. Kona Reeves
Despite Lee’s dominant track record, The Finest was characteristically arrogant throughout the contest, running his mouth any time the opportunity presented itself. Lee made Reeves pay early in the bout when he threw him out of the ring with a suplex, but Reeves soon gained the advantage by tossing the ring skirt over Lee’s head, leaving the big man vulnerable to The Finest’s fistic fury.
Reeves held onto the edge as long as he could, wearing down Lee with submission holds and giving the Limitless Superstar his toughest challenge to date. However, Lee came alive after weathering a series of blows by Reeves. Running on adrenaline, Lee pulverized Reeves with a pounce before finishing the job with his organ-jarring Supernova slam, claiming the pinfall and silencing (for now) NXT’s Finest motormouth.
