Coming into TakeOver: Portland on Sun., Feb.16, Keith Lee and Dominik Dijakovic’s series in WWE was tied at one win a piece. There had also been a draw and a no contest (and a lot of great matches outside Triple H’s territory you should check out - read about those here), but the big question is who would win the series.
Well, not really. Lee’s rise over the past four months or so has been nothing less that meteoric, and nobody expected NXT to slow that by having him drop the North American title. So the big question is what big GIF-able moment would the two rivals create in their latest encounter.
They provided several answers, and while Keith may be the one with the “Moment Maker” moniker, it was actually Heavy Double-D who created the majority of them.
Here’s a sampling:
Yep, this is definitely a @RealKeithLee vs. @DijakovicWWE match. #NXTTakeOver pic.twitter.com/rxn7bmW3Cr— WWE NXT (@WWENXT) February 17, 2020

In the end, all those moments cost Dijakovic. He was unable to get Lee up for his Feast Your Eyes finisher. The Limitless One was able to hit Big Bang Catastrophe, and kept his North American title as a result.
