During NXT TakeOver: In Your House broadcasts on the WWE Network, wrestler Keith Lee managed to retain the NXT North American Championship after defeating Johnny Gargano in combat.
The confrontation was the third of the exclusive day for the online platform. The two men had a close and dynamic contest, with several moments that took place at ringside and the appearance of Mia Yim and Candice LeRae. Despite being attacked with a key in his eye, Keith managed to get up and apply two spirit bombs and then end the fight with his big bang catastrophe.

Lee managed to defeat Roderick Strong in the main event of the episode held on January 22, 2019 to become the new champion, lifting gold for the first time since his arrival at NXT in 2018.
