In-Ring: Keith Lee, Dominik Dijakovic
NXT Champion and NXT North American Champion Keith Lee makes his way to the ring. He has the ring announcer do his announcement again. The last few months have been difficult and trying. We’ve all had struggles, difficult times, sadness, and suffering. Lee understands losses, hurt, and pain. Lee wants to point out that there’s something so incredible special that can occur when we are in this ring. Lee feels it not just through the people here and the ring announcer. He feels it when he’s standing here with these championships and now he stands before us as not just the North American Champion, but also the NXT Champion.
Lee wants to highlight that he is not in disbelief and has not fooled himself. It’s back to reality. There’s an entire locker room of some supporters, friends, and enemies. They want the same opportunity that he has managed to earn. In the celebration, he has to celebrate the fact that there is an understanding. This wasn’t done on his own. Opportunity and chances created this. Lee knows he is not a self-made man. Tim Brooks was more than just a trainer for him. Tim Brooks was like a father and he believed in him when no one else did. The buck doesn’t stop there. He didn’t do this alone. When he says NXT Universe, they made sure and welcomed him with the most open arms.
