Lee faces the Undisputed Era
Keith Lee has been one of the NXT stars who has been on a rise since Survivor Series.
The Undisputed Era wanted answers from Finn Balor after his attack from the last show, however, Lee came out and wanted to fight for one of their titles.
He attacked them with a microphone as Adam Cole was able to run away. Tommaso Ciampa was present to put him back in the ring.
Cole was saved by his teammates but left his title behind. Ciampa picked up the NXT Championship, in what should be a sign of things to come.

Shayna Baszler locked in the Kirifuda Clutch and easily picked up the win.

Tag team tussle
Bobby Fish was out for the Undisputed Era as the trio took on Lee, Ciampa and Dominik Dijakovic.
The match was taking place as expected before Finn Balor came in to cause havoc. He kicked Adam Cole who crashed into the referee.
Balor then hit the 1916 DDT to Ciampa but the Prince took a massive Spirit Bomb from Lee.
Cole had recovered by then to hit a super kick and then tried to hit the Last Shot on Lee, however, the leader of the Undisputed Era took a jackhammer and lost the match for his side.

William Regal came out to include Lee in a triple threat match for the No.1 contender’s clash for Cole’s title.
Lee will face Ciampa and Balor next week, in what should be another tasty clash.
