- We noted before that Seth Rollins became the first-ever WWE NXT Champion at last night’s tapings in Full Sail University be defeating Jinder Mahal. WWE Hall of Famer Howard Finkel did the ring announcing for the match and after it was over, Dusty Rhodes presented him with the belt while Triple H came to the ring to congratulate him. After Triple H came down, the rest of the NXT babyface wrestlers came down to join in on the celebration.
The entire roster, including Hall of Famers in attendance, watched the match from the stage and a fan in the crowd noted that the whole presentation should come off great on TV.
Jim Ross commented on Twitter and said that Rollins had a “career night” at the tapings.
Here is a photo of the new NXT Champion and his title:
