Velveteen Dream’s coveted NXT North American Title didn’t have to be on the line for Kona Reeves to approach the match with dangerous intensity. Looking as aggressive as ever, The Finest turned the match into a slugfest after Dream rankled him with a slap. Reeves stayed on the attack until the referee caught him trying to illegally use the ropes for added leverage in a pinning predicament. Velveteen Dream then took over, stunning Reeves with superkicks and a Dream Valley Driver for the three-count.
Dream’s emphatic win was soon overshadowed by the presence of Roderick Strong on the big screen. Appearing outside of the arena, The Messiah of the Backbreaker revealed that he had set fire to Velveteen Dream’s signature purple couch.
Fuming, Dream paced the ring, while Strong signed off with a rhetorical quip for the NXT North American Champion: “Do I have your attention now?”
