NXT confirms North American title match for TakeOver: In Your House
The card for NXT TakeOver: In Your House is up to five officially confirmed matches.
NXT’s Instagram account announced last night that Keith Lee will defend his North American Championship against Johnny Gargano at TakeOver: In Your House. Lee and Mia Yim have recently been feuding with Gargano and Candice LeRae.
Yim and LeRae will face off on next Wednesday’s episode of NXT.
Lee has been NXT North American Champion since winning the title from Roderick Strong in January. Gargano previously held the title in early 2019.
TakeOver: In Your House is taking place on Sunday, June 7. Here’s the updated card for the show:
NXT Champion Adam Cole defending against Velveteen Dream
NXT Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair defending against Rhea Ripley and Io Shirai in a triple threat match
NXT North American Champion Keith Lee defending against Johnny Gargano
Tommaso Ciampa vs. Karrion Kross (w/ Scarlett)
Finn Balor vs. Damian Priest
Cole vs. Dream has a stipulation where, if Dream loses, he can’t challenge for the NXT Championship again as long as Cole is champion.
WWE has also been building up an NXT Tag Team title match between champions Imperium (Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner) and Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch, but when that will be taking place hasn’t been announced.
