Photos: Triple H Congratulates Leon Ruff On NXT North American Championship Win

As noted, this week’s WWE NXT episode opened with a major upset as Leon Ruff captured the NXT North American Title from Johnny Gargano.

Ruff’s post-match celebration on the stage with Damien Priest featured a comedy moment where the title dropped down from Ruff’s waist due to his size. Triple H took to Twitter after the show to congratulate Ruff, and make fun of the moment.

He wrote, “That’s why we don’t call it a belt…CONGRATULATIONS to @LEONRUFF_! #AndNew #NXTNATitle #WWENXT”

Triple H also posted a post-show backstage photo with Ruff to Instagram, congratulating him again.

He wrote, “Congratulations to the NEW #NXTNATitle Champion!!! #ThePoint #WWENXT #WeAreNXT”
