Adam Cole made history at a historic event on Saturday night.
With the win, Cole becomes the new NXT World Champion and as Mauro Ranallo pointed out on commentary at the conclusion of the broadcast, the second-ever NXT Grand Slam Champion in the history of the promotion.
Cole defeated Gargano in their rematch for the NXT Championship in the main event of Saturday night’s milestone NXT TakeOver special, which took place at the Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, Connecticut. The Undisputed ERA member blasted Johnny Champion with a Last Shot kick to score the pin fall victory to claim the title.
