Roderick Strong Wins NXT North American Championship, Lio Rush Returns On NXT

– Lio Rush returned to the ring and defeated Oney Lorcan on tonight’s NXT episode to become the new #1 contender to WWE Cruiserweight Champion Drew Gulak for a future title shot.

Rush was last seen on WWE TV as Bobby Lashley’s manager on the RAW brand. He had been off TV since mid-April amid reports of heat with WWE officials and unhappiness in the company. It looks like he has returned to work NXT and 205 Live, which had been rumored.

– Roderick Strong defeated The Velveteen Dream to become the new WWE NXT North American Champion.

This is Strong’s first run with the title and he is just the fifth Superstar to hold it. Dream won the title back on the February 20 NXT episode by defeating Johnny Gargano.

The Undisputed Era assisted Strong in the match and they now hold all the gold in NXT. Adam Cole is the NXT Champion and the NXT Tag Team Titles are held by Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish.

Below are a few shots from tonight’s title change at Full Sail Live on the USA Network:
