Reed worked hard for 14 years toward that title shot and he made the most of the opportunity. Despite having to deal with both Johnny Gargano and Austin Theory during the match, Reed carried on.
Ultimately, Reed was able to defeat Johnny Gargano and win the NXT North American Championship for the first time in his career, making sure all the hard work finally paid off.
Bronson Reed celebrated his huge victory and he brought his wife Paige to the ring to address the crowd. He thanked everyone who supported him. He then went on to especially thank his wife by giving a very emotional speech.
“Thank you, everyone that’s here, thank you. That’s all of you fans that come here and always support us guys. To the people at the commentary desk, thank you. To everyone in the back, thank you. Everyone that believed in me to get where I am today, but most of all, thank you to my wife, Paige.
It’s hard being the wife of a pro wrestler, especially the past 14 years when I had zero dollars in the bank. She supported me and this is the reason why now I’m living my dream, and I am the new North American Champion! The Colossal Era of NXT has begun.”
Reed then dropped the microphone and continued to celebrate his massive win. We will have to see how Bronson Reed does as the NXT North American Champion. Johnny Gargano will certainly want a rematch.
