Three matches announced for next week's NXT


WWE has confirmed three matches that will be part of the lineup for next week's NXT:

- NXT North American Champion Keith Lee will defend his title against Dominik Dijakovic and Damian Priest in a triple threat match. The match was announced after a brawl between them on tonight's show.

- Dakota Kai, Xia Li, Aliyah, Kayden Carter, Shotzi Blackheart, and Deonna Purrazzo will face off in a second chance gauntlet match, with the winner becoming the final wrestler to qualify for the number one contender's ladder match that will be airing on the Wednesday, April 8 episode of NXT.

Chelsea Green, Mia Yim, Tegan Nox, Io Shirai, and Candice LeRae have already qualified for the ladder match. Green defeated Blackheart to qualify, Yim defeated Kai, Nox defeated Purrazzo, Shirai defeated Aliyah, and LeRae defeated Carter.

Li was advertised to face Aliyah in a qualifying match tonight, but there was an angle where it was shown that Li had been attacked backstage. Aliyah was happy about the attack and wanted to win by forfeit, but Shirai took Li's place in the match.

- Velveteen Dream vs. Bobby Fish is the third match that's been announced for next Wednesday's NXT episode. A message from NXT Champion Adam Cole aired on tonight's show. Cole, who said he was on vacation, reiterated that Dream has done nothing to deserve a title shot. He challenged Dream to face Fish next week.
