Keith Lee just Spirit Bombed the wrong man

NXT opened tonight with an advertised North American title match between the champ Keith Lee and challenger Cameron Grimes.

Grimes gave it his best shot and at periods had the big man reeling, but it was always going to be Lee who walked out the victor of that one. A pounce and then the Big Bang Catastrophe did the trick.

It was the post match angle that spiced things up a bit.

Lee was immediately attacked from behind by Damian Priest using a weapon, laying the champ out.

This brought out Lee’s friend, Dominik Dijakovic, who has also been victim to Priest’s night stick. Dom attacked the Archer of Infamy, chasing him from his ring. That’s when Keith came to.

And what did he see? He saw Dominik Dijakovic holding his title. He never saw Priest. So he assumed Dijakovic was his assailant. So he made him pay with a big Spirit Bomb.

Keith, no! That’s the wrong guy!

This always looked to be heading to a triple threat at TakeOver: Tampa. Now that definitely appears to be the case.
