The first-ever winner-take-all title match will take place on NXT on July 8 as WWE made a blockbuster announcement yesterday.
First, the NXT North American champion Keith Lee will be defending his title against Johnny Gargano and Finn Balor in a triple threat match on next week’s episode of NXT. The winner – and champion – from that match will then take on Adam Cole in a title vs title match on the July 8 episode of NXT which goes head-to-head against night two of AEW’s Fyter Fest.
The two title matches were set up in a segment on last night’s NXT on USA Network with Cole first addressing Karrion Cross. Cole was interrupted by Keith Lee, who was interrupted by Johnny Gargano, who was interrupted by Finn Balor. With all four men in the ring, NXT General Manager William Regal appeared on video to settle the score between everyone.
