Ricochet def. Adam Cole and Rey Mysterio to win the NXT Championship
For the first time in NXT history, the NXT Championship will be decided in a Triple Threat Match but not just any Triple Threat, a potential show stealer as the legendary Rey Mysterio returns to the WWE to battle Adam Cole and recent signee Ricochet with the winner being officially crowned the NXT Champion
For weeks, Adam Cole has proclaimed that there is no "real" competition apart of the "new" NXT and he should just be handed the NXT Championship, General Manager Paul Heyman would not budge. On the 2 August Year IV edition of NXT, Cole tried to goat Heyman into awarding him the title but instead he was interrupted by the returning Rey Mysterio and to make things more interesting, NXT's newest signee Ricochet appeared and a tense stare down commenced all the while backstage Heyman announced a Triple Threat for the NXT Title featuring all 3 men.
For Cole, it is about ushering in the Undisputed Era's "Renaissance of Gold" and claiming the top for himself. For Mysterio it is about fulfilling his legacy as a professional wrestler (which doesn't need it in other people's eyes). For Ricochet it is about reaching the top after 15+ years of hard work and determination.
