Two please. There are a lot of titles under the WWE banner and some of them are among the best known championships in the industry. A championship changing hands can be a very important moment for someone, as it can mean the first major win of a wrestler’s career or a step back up after being knocked down. That was the case this weekend, as two titles changed hands in one night.
There were two title changes on Saturday night at NXT In Your House. First up, Carmelo Hayes defeated Cameron Grimes to win the NXT North American Title. Grimes had won the title from Hayes in a five man ladder match at Stand & Deliver. Next, the Creed Brothers defeated Pretty Deadly to win the NXT Tag Team Titles for the first time. Had the Brothers lost, they would have been out of the Diamond Mine. NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions Toxic Attraction, NXT Women’s Champion Mandy Rose and NXT Champion Bron Breakker all retained their titles.
Opinion: You need to have something like this take place to make a show feel all the more important. That is what they did here, as Hayes getting his title back sets up a few possible options, while the Creed Brothers win the titles that they have been chasing for a few months now. The show felt like a bigger deal with the title changes and that is the best thing that could have happened.
Which of the title changes mean more? Who will be the next champion to lose their title? Let us know in the comments below.
