NXT North American Championship Match announced for Next Week. Johnny Gargano will defend his title on NXT Television.
Johnny Gargano finally has a relevant and meaningful title run. Despite being a triple crown champion in NXT, his first succesfull title defence came last year on the December 30 episode of NXT. He has since held on to the title, taking on the likes of Kushida and Bronson Reed.
The latter fought him on Night 2 of NXT Takeover: Stand & Deliver after beating Dexter Lumis, Leon Ruff, Cameron Grimes, Isaiah “Swerve” Scott and LA Knight in a Gauntlet Match on Night 1. Unfortuately, he fell short and failed to capture the title. He will now have another chance to win his first Championship in NXT.
NXT North American Championship Match announced for Next Week
Earlier in tonight’s episode of NXT, Gargano walked out with Austin Theory who was scheduled to face NXT Champion Karrion Kross. Things did not go well for theory and the referee had to bring the match to a close. Gargano who was outside, will hope to avoid a similar fate when he takes on Reed next week.
Good news: @JohnnyGargano finally has a headband! 😃

It will be interesting to see if this match brings an end to their feud or set up another encounter at NXT TakeOver: In Your House scheduled to take place on June 13, 2021. Either way, it is likely that the title picture will be clearer by the end of next week’s episode.
This is the second In your House event to take place under the NXT Banner. However, it will be the first to air on pay per view.
The event will emanate from the Capitol Wrestling Center, hosted at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. No matches have been announced so far.
