NXT North American title announcement gets interrupted by a returning EC3

Former Impact champion EC3 returned to NXT television during last night’s episode which was taped a few weeks ago. His return was held off until his Feast or Fired episode on Impact Wrestling aired on television, which eventually did last week.

EC3 walked out to the ring after William Regal announced that a new title will be introduced at NXT Takeover: New Orleans – the North American title.

The former champion thought that it was nice for William Regal to give him a big contract, new theme, and all that but didn’t think that he’d go out of the way to give him a new title belt as well. Regal was not impressed with EC3’s arrogance and then informed him he won’t be getting the title because he would have to earn it.

Regal then made a six-man ladder match for the show to determine the inaugural champion with EC3, Ricochet, Killian Dain, Velveteen Dream, Lars Sullivan, and Adam Cole.
