NXT Championship Fatal 4-Way Main Event Match: Trick Williams(c) vs Je'Von Evans vs Shawn Spears vs "All Ego" Ethan Page
Je'Von Evans is out first. The fan-favorite is hyped heavily, and we're reminded that this isn't just his first premium live event--or even his first main event, but he's done so much in just three months. The next participant out is Shawn Spears, wearing a white mask. We're reminded that he's never held the NXT title before. We're also reminded that Spears was the first person to pin Trick (in non-title action, of course) since Trick won the title. Out next is "All Ego" Ethan Page to a better pop. The best is saved for last, and out comes our NXT Champion to a massive, ear-shattering pop--Trick Williams! Chants of "whoop that Trick" repeat endlessly it seems as the champ, complete with Harlem Heat-themed tights, soaks it all up! Booker T notices the tights theme and calls it out!
