NXT North American Title to Be Defended This Week, Number One Contender Match for Tag Team Titles

Two big matches for this week’s episode of NXT have just been announced.

NXT General Manager William Regal announced on his Twitter that he has made a match for the NXT North American title on the latest episode of the show.

“I have been extremely impressed with the Archer of Infamy as of late,” said Regal, referring to current champion Damian Priest.

“As a fighting champion, he should welcome all challengers,” added Regal. “Dexter Lumis was unfortunately injured before his last opportunity… but he’ll have it tomorrow night!”

Lumis had originally been a participant in the North American Championship ladder match at NXT TakeOver: XXX before he was injured. Priest ultimately won the match and the championship.

Meanwhile, it was also announced that there will be a tag team match this week to determine the number one contenders for the NXT Tag Team championship.

The tag team championships are currently held by Breezango’s Tyler Breeze and Fandango. The match will determine who will get a future title shot against the two.

The Undisputed Era’s Roderick Strong and Bobby Fish will go against Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch to determine who gets the title shot at the tag team titles.
