Though he never wavered in his pursuit of the NXT Championship, Breakker was inserted back into the title picture after pinning Ciampa at WarGames. Not only that, but Bron picked up a number of impressive wins following Halloween Havoc, including one over the Cruiserweight Champion Roderick Strong.

The match at New Year's Evil saw a number of near falls, including Bron kicking out of Ciampa's Fairytale Ending. From there, Breakker was able to regain control of the bout and lock Ciampa into his Recliner submission, forcing the champion to tap out. With that, Bron Breakker is the new NXT Champion.
