WWE News: Keith Lee dethrones Roderick Strong to become NXT North American Champion

Keith Lee celebrates winning the North American Title

Undisputed Era have dominated NXT for months, and all their members have held some form of gold since September.

Adam Cole finally became the NXT Champion in June after defeating his nemesis Johnny Gargano, Bobby Fish and Kyle O'Reilly regained their Tag Team Championships in August from the Street Profits, and Roderick Strong defeated Velveteen Dream in September for the North American Title.

When you hold all the gold though you have a target on your back, and the foursome have had to endure a heck of a lot of title defences over the months.

For Strong though, he met his maker last night in the form of the Limitless one - Keith Lee.

Strong has already had to defend his title in the past against Lee, and he came through a Triple Threat match against him and Dominik Dijakovic in late 2019.

But after besting Dijakovic, Cameron Grimes and Damian Priest two weeks ago, Lee got a shot at Strong himself last night.

With Cole, O'Reilly and Fish at ringside, Strong had the numbers advantage and there didn't look to be a hope at all for the Limitless one.

But after clearing the edges of the ring of Strong's stable-mates, Lee managed to hit his modified Jackhammer finisher on Strong as he bounced off the ropes, and that was enough to give him his first title in NXT.

It's thought that Vince McMahon sees big things in Lee, and his showing at Survivor Series in November where he pinned Seth Rollins and went toe-to-toe with Roman Reigns.

There's even a chance that he could take part in the Royal Rumble match this weekend - it would definitely not be a surprise to see him mix it up with the best the main roster has to offer.

But could this be the beginning of the end for Undisputed Era?

There's every chance that cracks could start to appear now that one title has disappeared - or it could be a way to get them on either Raw or SmackDown after WrestleMania in April.
