WWE NXT: Dexter Lumis Advances to Takeover, Ridge Holland Debut Confirmed for Next Week

NXT continued with the Triple Threat matchups to determine the participants for the Ladder Match at NXT Takeover XXX. The Ladder Match will be for the vacant NXT North American Championship, which was vacated by Keith Lee last week.

Dexter Lumis took out Timothy Thatcher and former NXT Champion Finn Balor in the main-event to advance to the Ladder Match. Lumis joins Bronson Reed, who defeated Johhny Gargano and Roderick Strong last week to book his spot in the matchup.

Lumis and Reed will be joined by three other superstars, with the next entrant to be determined on NXT next week. Oney Lorcan, Damien Priest, and NXT UK star Ridge Holland will compete in the third triple threat matchup next week.

Holland is a former professional rugby player, who has had sporadic appearances on NXT UK in the past few months.

Holland made an NXT appearance in September last year, losing to Keith Lee in a squash match. However, next week will be his official debut and probably a full-time switch to the NXT brand.

NXT Takeover XXX will take place on August 22 from the Performance Center. Currently, the card has the NXT North American Championship Match, NXT Women’s Title Match between Io Shirai and either Dakota Kai or Rhea Ripley. Karrion Kross vs Keith Lee for the NXT Title is also rumored for the pay-per-view.
