There is a new WWE NXT North American Champion and that’s Ricochet. As seen at Saturday’s (August 18, 2018) WWE NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn 4 event in Brooklyn, New York at the Barclays Center at the Center on the WWE Network, Ricochet beat Adam Cole to win the title.

This marks Ricochet’s first title win under the banner of the WWE and only the second North American Champion in history. If you recall, WWE introduced the title in March on an episode of NXT where Cole would later beat EC3, Killian Dain, Ricochet, Lars Sullivan, and Velveteen Dream at the NXT TakeOver: New Orleans event on April 7th during WrestleMania 34 weekend in New Orleans, Louisiana.
WWE holds NXT TV tapings this Thursday night in Winter Park, Florida at Full Sail University where WWE will have the fallout from this event as well as this match, so stayed tuned for that.
In regards to the next NXT TakeOver event, fans will have to wait for NXT TakeOver: Los Angeles during Survivor Series weekend as that show is slated to go down on Saturday, November 17, 2018 in Los Angeles, California at the Staples Center.
