On NXT last week, the show concluded with Adam Cole’s next NXT Championship challenger seemingly being revealed when Scarlett presented the champion with a symbolic hourglass on behalf of Karrion Kross.
It seems the title situation might be somewhat less straightforward.
North American Champion Keith Lee confronted Cole, champion now for 382 days as of writing, demanding his shot at the belt and smashing Scarlett’s hourglass.
This brought out Lee’s recent rival Johnny Gargano who also demanded his shot at the belt he previously held.
Finally, Finn Balor claimed that after defeating Damien Priest, he should be the number one contender for NXT’s top prize.
Enter William Regal.
The NXT General Manager announced that the three would be challengers would face off for Lee’s North American Championship next week on the show.
The winner of that match will face Adam Cole in a winner takes all, title vs title match on July 8th.
That sets up a mouthwatering match for next week with three wonderful options to be Cole’s next challenger.
Elsewhere, Cameron Grimes vs Damien Priest was set up for next week’s show alongside a rematch between Karrion Kross & Bronson Reed.
