The Founding-Father of WWE’s black-and-gold brand, Paul “Triple H” Levesque, had some high praise for the four international standout performers that competed in the Fatal-4-Way Match for the NXT Cruiserweight Championship at the WWE Worlds Collide: NXT vs. NXT UK live special that kicked off WWE Royal Rumble Weekend in the Houston, Texas area.
After winning the brand new, re-designed NXT Cruiserweight Championship title belt from former title-holder Angel Garza at the WWE Worlds Collide: NXT vs. NXT UK live special on Saturday night, Jordan Devlin received some high-praise from The Founding-Father of NXT, Paul “Triple H” Levesque.
At tonight’s NXT versus NXT UK Worlds Collide event from Houston, Devlin defeated Angel Garza, Isaiah “Swerve” Scott, and Travis Banks to become the new NXT Cruiserweight Champion, his first title won under the WWE promotional banner, and the first person to win the newly re-designed version of the belt that was unveiled in a backstage segment prior to the event (View Close-HQ Photos Of New Look NXT Cruiserweight Championship Title Belt HERE).
The Founding-Father of WWE’s black-and-gold brand took to social media to share a photo he took backstage at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas with the new champion immediately after the live special wrapped up on the WWE Network.
In addition to the backstage post-show photo, “The Game” posted a message on his official Twitter feed commending each man for representing the best of the black-and-gold brand(s) at the WWE Worlds Collide: NXT vs. NXT UK show on Saturday night.
“Four of the most incredible athletes from Ireland, New Zealand, Mexico, and the U.S. competing for their brands, themselves, and this title,” wrote Triple H after the show in a tweet that included the aforementioned backstage photo. “Congratulations to the NEW Cruiserweight Champion, the Ace of his division, Jordan Devlin.”
