WWE NXT No Mercy 2023 showcased a thrilling bout for the NXT North American Championship, held at the Mechanic Banks Arena in Bakersfield, CA. The match pitted Dominik Mysterio against Trick Williams, with Dragon Lee serving as the special guest referee.
Mysterio dominated the early stages of the match, seizing control of the action. However, as Trick rallied and made his comeback, an inadvertent collision with the referee interrupted the flow. During a crucial moment, Trick managed to pin Mysterio, but the downed referee couldn’t make the count in time. The battle raged on, with Trick executing a face plant followed by a swift head kick, which only garnered a near-fall.
Adding to the drama, Mysterio inadvertently knocked the referee out again before launching Trick out of the ring and driving him into the ring post. But when Mysterio attempted a frog splash and missed, Trick again had a prime opportunity to win, but the referee was still incapacitated. In the final moments, Trick deftly evaded a strike with the championship belt, retaliating with a powerful running kick. This move secured Trick the victory and the title.
