Isaiah Scott Wins NXT North American Championship – Isiah Scott sure swerved Bronson Reed tonight by challenging him to an unexpected North American Title match on this week’s episode of NXT and it paid off. The bout was rightfully the main event for the evening as a bit of chicanery allowed Hit Row to walk away with some NXT gold.
Scott tried to out-power Bronson but that was a fool’s errand as Reed rocked the Hit Row leader with an immense shoulder tackle early and then gorilla pressed him down to the canvas.
Reed remained dominant for quite awhile, but Scott found his window of offense to take Reed of his feet. Reed however, did the same with a massive lariat and then a leaping Death Valley Driver. However, matters got murky for Reed when Top Dolla and Ashante “Thee” Adonis began to meddle. Reed did remove them from the equation quite literally but Swerve soared off the top to hit Bronson with a 450 splash and it was good enough for the pinfall win. The show closed out with Hit Row celebrating at the top of the stage.
This is Scott’s first title reign since signing with WWE in April 2019. Reed just won the title back on the May 18 NXT show, by defeating Johnny Gargano in a Steel Cage match.
Reed has been rumored for a main roster call-up in the WWE Draft, which takes place on the August 30 RAW and the September 3 SmackDown. He has been brought to recent RAW and SmackDown shows so that officials could get a closer look, and now this title change could be a sign that they plan to call him up sooner.
Stay tuned for more on Swerve, Hit Row and Reed. Below are several shots of tonight’s main event title change from the Capitol Wrestling Center at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando:
