Ladder Match Qualifier For NXT Week, "Takeover: XXX" Logo And Full Announcement

As noted, this week’s NXT episode saw NXT Champion Keith Lee announcing he is relinquishing the NXT North American Title.

Lee’s reason is that he doesn’t want to hold anyone back, and wants to give them the same opportunities he had while he continues to defend the main title.

Regal then announced that a Ladder Match will take place at “Takeover: XXX” during SummerSlam weekend to determine the new NXT North American Champion. The participants are being decided by a series of Triple Threat qualifying matches.

The first of these matches saw Bronson Reed win a Triple Threat to qualify for the first spot in the Ladder Match at Takeover. He defeated Johnny Gargano and Roderick Strong.

Next week’s Triple Threat will feature Finn Balor, Dexter Lumis and Timothy Thatcher doing battle for the second Ladder Match spot. After that there will be two more Triple Threats, but there’s no word yet on the participants.

NXT TakeOver XXX will take place on Saturday, August 22 from the NXT Arena on the campus of Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida.

Below is WWE’s full announcement on “Takeover: XXX” sent to us tonight, along with the logo:
