North American title match set for WWE NXT In Your House

Cameron Grimes will defend against Carmelo Hayes, with the date TBA.

A North American Championship match has been announced for WWE NXT In Your House. 

Title holder Cameron Grimes will defend against former Champion Carmelo Hayes. No date has been announced for the In Your House special. 

Grimes announced the match during an in-ring promo segment with Solo Sikoa on this week's NXT episode. Sikoa declared himself the North American title's top contender, and Grimes agreed to defend the belt against him next, if he gets by Hayes. 

Hayes and Trick Williams then attacked Grimes, but Sikoa made the save. A tag team match with Grimes and Sikoa teaming against Hayes and Williams was later announced for next week's NXT show.

Grimes retained the North American title in a triple threat match against Hayes and Sikoa on the May 3 Spring Breakin' episode of NXT. 

Grimes captured the North American title on WrestleMania weekend at NXT Stand & Deliver, defeating Hayes, Sikoa, Grayson Waller, and Santos Escobar in a five-way ladder match.
