NXT ON USA/ADAM COLE: Adam Coles historic NXT title reign comes to an end

Posted on 7/09/120 by Colin Vassallo

After a total of 403 days as NXT champion, Adam Cole lost
his title to Keith Lee last night during the main event of
night two of NXTs Great American Bash.

Cole cemented his place in NXT history as the longest-
reigning champion ever of the brand, surpassing Finn Balor
to take the top spot in the chart.

In his over 400 days as champion, Cole defended his title
eight times, coming out victorious in seven of them. His
challengers included Johnny Gargano, Matt Riddle, Daniel
Bryan, Pete Dunn, Finn Balor, Tommaso Ciampa, and Velveteen
Dream, before hitting a brick wall against Lee.

With his incredible title reign which started in June of
last year at NXT Takeover: XXV, Cole is certainly one of the
best, if not the best, NXT champion ever. And that, is
undisputed bay-bay!
