The Velveteen Dream didn’t dethrone Adam Cole as WWE NXT Champion as he failed to win the title.
The Backlot Brawl aired during Sunday’s WWE NXT TakeOver: In Your House at Full Sail University on the WWE Network. WWE actually had taped this match in late March.
As seen in the contest, Cole went over in the contest when he hit a Candian Destroyer onto a pile of chairs for the win. Cole arrived at the fight in a lifted truck while Dream drove to the fight in a lambo.
They brawled around and at one point, an Uber showed up for Cole, who was trying to leave. Dream pushed Cole off the ladder and onto the windshield of the car.
Roderick Strong and Bobby Fish showed up but were taken out by Dexter Loomis, who put them in his car and drove away.
This was actually a rematch from the May 6th episode of NXT on the USA Network that saw Cole successfully retain the championship. However, WWE continued the program.
WWE set up this contest back on the May 27th episode of NXT when Cole had a Zoom call with NXT General Manager William Regal to address his problems with Dream.
Cole added a stipulation, which was if Dream loses then Dream can never get a title shot again as long as Cole is the champion.
