WWE NXT: Keith Lee Retains North American Title, to Take on Adam Cole

William Regal announced a major triple threat featuring Keith Lee, Finn Balor, and Johnny Gargano, which saw Keith Lee retain his North American title in the main event of NXT this week.

Lee delivered two Big Bang Catastrophe to finish the match and retain the title, which will now be defended in a Winner Take All match in two weeks’ time.

Lee will take on NXT Champion Adam Cole, who recently completed one year with the top title on Wednesday nights.

The duo will compete on July 8th episode of NXT, which coincides with the Night Two of AEW Fyter Fest. WWE may be looking to add more title matches to the show in order to compete with Dynamite.

Winner Take All matches rarely result in the crowning of a dual champion, and it won’t be surprising to see a dusty finish to this major matchup.

Karrion Kross has his eyes set on the top prize, after sending out a message to Adam Cole through Scarlett a few weeks ago.

The winner of this matchup will become the first individual to hold both the titles at the same time.

Cole has previously held the North American title, as he was the inaugural champion, while Lee will enter his first-ever reign as NXT Champion if he manages to take down the leader of the Undisputed Era.
