NXT Championship match official for TakeOver: In Your House


Velveteen Dream is getting one more shot at Adam Cole's NXT Championship.

It was announced tonight that Cole will defend his NXT Championship against Dream at TakeOver: In Your House. The match has a stipulation where, if Cole wins, Dream can't challenge for the title again as long as Cole is champion.

That announcement was made during a negotiation between Cole and general manager William Regal on tonight's NXT. After making the match official for TakeOver, Regal added that he's going to find a location for Cole vs. Dream that will shine a spotlight on their talents in a setting that's worthy of the NXT Championship.

Cole retained his title against Dream on NXT three weeks ago. Roderick Strong, Bobby Fish, and Dexter Lumis all got involved in that match, and Dream got a visual pinfall on Cole following a ref bump. Strong then defeated Lumis on NXT last week. After the match, Lumis put Strong in a choke. Cole and Fish were about to attack Lumis, but Dream made the save and took them out.

NXT TakeOver: In Your House is taking place on Sunday, June 7. Here's the updated card for the show:

  • NXT Champion Adam Cole defending against Velveteen Dream
  • NXT Women's Champion Charlotte Flair defending against Rhea Ripley and Io Shirai in a triple threat match
  • Tommaso Ciampa vs. Karrion Kross (w/ Scarlett)
  • Finn Balor vs. Damian Priest
