For the second time in the title's short history the NXT Championship has changed hands at an NXT live event. Shinsuke Nakamura defeated Samoa Joe earlier today in Osaka (Japan) to regain the title just fourteen days after losing it to Joe at TakeOver: Toronto, becoming the second two-time champion in history.
The Osaka show was NXT's first ever live event in Japan, and what better way to make a statement than by having arguably the most recognisable Japanese wrestler on the planet win gold. Nakamura picked up the win after hitting Joe with a Kinshasha, making Joe's fourteen-day reign the shortest in title history to date.
Elsewhere on the show, DIY regained the NXT Tag Team Championship by defeating the Japanese duo of Tozawa and Tajiri, Asuka defeated Nia Jax to continue her reign as NXT Women's Champion, and Oney Lorcan picked up a surprise win over Andrade 'Cien' Almas in the opening match of the evening.
With Charlotte and Sasha Banks trading the RAW Women's Championship back and forth and now Nakamura regaining the NXT Championship, WWE sure does seem to be in to moving certain titles around like hot potatoes at the moment. Either way, this was surely a monumental moment in NXT's debut in the Land of the Rising Sun.
