Saturday’s WWE NXT No Mercy event at the Mechanics Bank Arena in Bakersfield, California featured Trick Williams defeating Dominik Mysterio for the NXT North American Championship.
The finish to this match involved special guest referee Dragon Lee being accidentally laid out and sent out of the ring by Mysterio’s superkick that was meant for Williams instead. After some back-and-forth action, Mysterio accidentally laid out the second referee and knocked Williams out of the ring afterwards. After Williams got back into the ring, Mysterio attempted a Frog Splash only for Williams to dodge it. Williams then attempted a pinfall but there was no count due to the lack of a referee. Williams then got out of the ring and grabbed Dragon Lee to toss him back in which led to Mysterio having enough time to grab his North American title and attempted to use it as a weapon. Mysterio’s plans quickly backfired after he got caught by a running knee strikes by Williams that managed to hit the belt and whacked Mysterio in the head in the process.
