Adam Cole's TakeOver challenger to be revealed on NXT this week


Adam Cole's next challenger will be made official on Wednesday's episode of NXT.

Triple H and Shawn Michaels took part in a post-show Q&A with Cathy Kelley after Worlds Collide last night. Triple H announced during it that William Regal will reveal who will challenge for Cole's NXT Championship at TakeOver: Portland on Wednesday's NXT.

Tommaso Ciampa has been being built up as a challenger for Cole. On the January 8 episode of NXT, a video aired with Ciampa talking about wanting his title and his life back.

Ciampa was forced to vacate the NXT Championship when he underwent neck surgery in March 2019.

Matt Riddle & Pete Dunne will face The Grizzled Young Veterans (Zack Gibson & James Drake) in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic finals on Wednesday's NXT. Tegan Nox vs. Dakota Kai is also advertised for the episode.

The Moda Center in Portland, Oregon is hosting NXT TakeOver: Portland on Sunday, February 16. Rhea Ripley will defend her title against Bianca Belair, Johnny Gargano will face Finn Balor, and the team that wins the Dusty Classic will challenge for Kyle O'Reilly & Bobby Fish's Tag Team titles.
