Adam Cole NXT Takeover: Portland

Adam Cole threw everything he could at Tommaso Ciampa at NXT Takeover: Portland, but it took an assist from Johnny Gargano for him to retain his NXT Championship. Cole defeated Ciampa to retain the championship in a match where Ciampa fought off multiple attacks to his neck and a late-stage spate of interference by the Undisputed Era before Gargano came out and grabbed the title. After a staredown, Gargano nailed Ciampa with the title and left, allowing Cole to pick up the win.
