Keith Lee vs. Dominik Dijakovic ended in a Double Count-out
Whether you were hoping to feast your eyes on Dominik Dijakovic’s rare combination of speed and strength or bask in the glory of Keith Lee’s equally explosive hybrid offense, the collision between NXT’s two gravity-defying big men didn’t disappoint.
Lee and Dijakovic traded one mind-blowing move after another, all the while leaving the NXT Universe in total awe. From Lee flawlessly sticking the landing after Dijakovic muscled up his 320-pound frame for a monkey flip, to The Rare Breed crushing Lee with a chokeslam powerbomb for a near-fall, the match brimmed with eye-popping feats of athleticism.
About the only thing the match didn’t produce was a clear-cut victor. After Lee got knocked to the floor, the 6-foot-7, 270-pound Dijakovic flew onto him with an incredible Asai moonsault, causing both men to hit the steel ramp. The impact left both men unable to return to the ring by the referee’s count of 10, resulting in a Double Count-out. Yet, with NXT fans chanting “Let them fight!” as officials desperately tried to separate Lee and Dijakovic, something tells us this won’t be the last time we see the modern-day hosses battle inside the yellow ropes.
