Dolph Ziggler Wins NXT Championship

Dolph Ziggler is the new NXT Champion following the events that took place at the Roadblock special episode of NXT.

Ziggler defeated now former champion Bron Breakker and Tommaso Ciampa in a surprising series of events to capture the NXT title for the first time in his career.

At one point it looked like Breakker would successfully retain the title by hitting a powerslam onto Ziggler. However, just before the referee could count the pinfall victory, Robert Roode would appear at ringside and pulled the referee out of the ring. In triple threat rules, there are no disqualifications. Roode would also go on to prevent Ciampa from winning the NXT Championship. As Ciampa lined up to it Bron Breakker with a running knee, Roode would pull Breakker out of the ring. Ziggler would then run into the ring and hit a superkick onto Ciampa to steal the title via pinfall, much to the shock of the crowd in attendance.

The NXT Championship victory adds to the long list of titles won by Dolph Ziggler in WWE. Ziggler has previously won the World Heavyweight Championship twice, United States Championship twice, 6 time Intercontinental Champion and 4 time Tag Team Champion.

Bron Breakker’s NXT Championship reign now ends at 63 days. The dropping of the title may signal a call up to the main roster in the near future, as Breakker made his in-ring debut on the March 7th Raw.
