Santos Escobar has been defending his NXT Cruiserweight Championship for some time now, and he continued to prove that his reign is no joke, as he took down Jake Atlas during tonight’s episode of NXT in another big win.

Escobar and Atlas went at it from the start of the match, but it was Escobar who proved to be just too much, even without any help. Late in the match, Atlas attempted to land a Rainbow DDT, but Escobar avoided it. Escobar then managed to hit the double under hook facebuster for the win, retaining his title and continuing his reign.
