While Ruff had appeared on RAW, SmackDown, NXT, 205 Live and Main Event this year, he went into last night’s title shot with a record of 0-11. The former EVOLVE star worked most of those matches as an enhancement talent, but was signed to a deal back in late July.
Ruff took to Twitter after the win and called it one of the greatest moments in his life. “One of the greatest moments in my life @WWENXT C H A M P I O N,” he wrote.
Triple H Also took to Twitter after the show to congratulate Ruff. Ruff’s post-match celebration on the stage with Damien Priest featured a comedy moment where the title dropped down from Ruff’s waist due to his size. As seen below, Triple H make fun of the moment.
