Trick Williams defended his NXT Championship in the main event of the night in the NXT Battleground. The over-wrestler had the last laugh against Ethan Page who has been full of ego since his debut in the roster. Page was shown his place as the NXT Champion with his good performance in the arena. But it was Ethan who dominated the match for the most part.

A couple of weeks back on NXT, Ethan arrived out of nowhere and attacked both Trick and Lash Legend. He claimed himself responsible for the attack on Noam Dar and Ora Mensah. Ethan claimed to end the 'Whoop That Era' by himself as he took out Trick on NXT. Last week in the roster, the match between the duo for the title was confirmed to take place in Battleground.

Ahead of the match, Ethan was attacked by Ora. As the duo entered the ring, there was huge support for Trick, who received chants of "Whoop That Trick" for his entrance and a minute after it. The crowd booed Page throughout the match and sent a message to the challenger. Ethan delivered a great performance and dominated the Champion. He tried to take out Trick early in the match.

The NXT Champion just hung in the match but could not do it for most parts of the match. Ethan was impressive and really seemed to be a man on a mission. The duo exchanged blows and punches. The crowd was behind Williams. For every punch from Page, they booed and for a punch from Trick, they yelled 'Yay'. The former AEW star nearly took the match away from Trick.

Page attempted to finish the match. But Trick came out of nowhere and delivered his finisher. The star wrestler pinned Page and claimed a win to defend his title. Sexyy Red came to the arena and celebrated Williams' victory. Ethan looked devastated as he came close to beating Trick but remained a bit too far from the target.
