One NXT star had reason to celebrate following Heatwave.
Noam Dar has not been the same man since losing the NXT Heritage Cup back in June when Oro Mensah filled in for the champion but lost to Nathan Frazer.
Dar has been in a depressed state since with the rest of his Meta-Four group rallying around the Scottish Supernova and even having him carry a fake cup all this time.
At NXT Heatwave, Noam Dar got the chance to reclaim the cup for real and did just that when he picked up a 2-1 win over Frazer in a match contested under Heritage Cup rules. The win sees Dar become the first three-time Heritage Cup in NXT history.
What else happened on NXT Heatwave?
Ilja Dragunov continued to look impressive as he picked up a win over Trick Williams while Ava’s televised singles debut on the brand ended in disaster when Ivy Nile picked up a quick win. Ava’s night got worse as she thought she had been whisked to safety by two of The Schism’s masked followers only for the Creed Brothers to reveal they had taken her to get The Dyad to agree to meet them in a Steel Cage match.
Dragon Lee and Lyra Valkyria picked up the biggest win of their respective WWE careers as they defeated The Judgment Day’s Rhea Ripley and Dominik Mysterio. In the night’s main event, Carmelo Hayes retained the NXT Championship with a win over Wes Lee.
