He did it twice. There are all kinds of wrestlers in WWE and as a result, it can take something special to make them stand out. The ones who do are often the wrestlers who get an early start and come into WWE with some kind of built in advantage. That is the case with a variety of NXT stars and now one of them has managed to reach two milestones with a single win.

This week’s edition of NXT saw Oba Femi cash in his Men’s Breakout Tournament contract for an immediate shot at the North American Title. Femi went on to defeat Dragon Lee in less than two minutes to win the title. According to Wrestlingnews.co, the win gave Femi two milestones. First of all, Femi is the first NIL signee to win a championship in WWE at any level. Also, at 22 years old, he is now the youngest champion in the title’s history.

Femi is a star in the making. Check out the new champ:

Opinion: This is an interesting way to go for WWE, as the company has a tendency to take their time with new stars. In Femi’s case, he was pushed hard in the tournament and then won the title the following week. That is more than you see happen most of the time and it is a rather special moment. Femi could be a big deal and he is getting a chance, so maybe things can go well for him going forward.

What do you think of Femi? How will he do in NXT? Let us know in the comments below.
