Kross vs. Burch, Priest vs. Reed announced for next week's NXT


Next week's NXT will feature a pair of grudge matches in addition to the final three-way qualifier for a shot at the vacant North American title at TakeOver XXX.

Karrion Kross will face Danny Burch after Kross laid out Burch and other wrestlers backstage on Wednesday's show in trying to make a point to NXT Champion Keith Lee. This will be Kross' first match since a July 15th win over Dominik Dijakovic while this will be a rare singles match for Burch.

Also announced for the show was a battle of qualifiers for the North American title ladder match in Damian Priest and Bronson Reed. As Priest was being interviewed Wednesday after his win, Reed wished him good luck and the two got into a heated confrontation that led to the match being made.

The other match set for the show is a three-way qualifier for the vacant North American title with Kushida vs. Cameron Grimes vs. a mystery opponent.
