North American title ladder match set for WWE NXT Stand & Deliver

Carmelo Hayes announced on tonight's NXT 2.0 that he will make his next title defense on April 2 in Dallas.

A ladder match for the NXT North American Championship has been announced for NXT Stand & Deliver. 

After defending the title on tonight's WWE NXT 2.0 episode, North American Champion Carmelo Hayes announced that his next defense will come on WrestleMania weekend in Dallas at Stand & Deliver in a ladder match, the same match type that decided the inaugural North American Champion on WrestleMania weekend in 2018. 

Hayes defeated Pete Dunne to retain the title on tonight's show, then declared his intention to defend the title on April 2. 

It was unclear from Hayes' promo whether the ladder match would be a singles bout, or a multi-person match. The 2018 match that Hayes referenced was a six-way, with Adam Cole defeating EC3, Killian Dain, Lars Sullivan, Velveteen Dream, and Ricochet to be crowned the first North American Champion.

Hayes has held the North American title since defeating the since-released Isaiah "Swerve" Scott in October 2021. 

The NXT Championship will also be on the line at Stand & Deliver. Bron Breakker currently holds that title, but must get through a triple threat match against Dolph Ziggler and Tommaso Ciampa on next week's Roadblock episode of NXT 2.0. 

The card for Stand & Deliver to this point:

NXT Stand & Deliver, Saturday, April 2 --

  • NXT North American Championship ladder match: Carmelo Hayes (c) vs. TBD
  • NXT Championship match: TBD
