NXT Deadline: Bron Breakker vs. Apollo Crews Result

Bron Breakker and Apollo Crews put on a test of strength and a huge match to close out tonight’s NXT Deadline, but in the end, the reigning NXT Champion continued his reign with an impressive win.

In a stellar match to close out Deadline, Breakker and Crews went toe-to-toe with one another, with Crews even looking like he would come out on top in a handful of moments. However, it was Breakker who would do enough to survive, escaping a late slam and hitting Crews with a Spear for the win. After the match, however, Breakker was met by Grayson Waller, who ambushed the champion and posed with the belt, which he became the #1 Contender for earlier tonight.
