Two more matches announced for WWE NXT


Two more matches have been confirmed for this coming Wednesday's episode of NXT.

WWE announced today that NXT Champion Keith Lee vs. Cameron Grimes in a non-title match and Bronson Reed vs. Shane Thorne are set for Wednesday's NXT. Dakota Kai vs. Rhea Ripley in a number one contender's match, Damian Priest vs. Ridge Holland vs. Oney Lorcan in a TakeOver qualifying match, and Imperium (Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner) defending their NXT Tag Team titles against the Undisputed Era (Kyle O'Reilly & Bobby Fish) have also been announced for the episode.

The winner of Kai vs. Ripley will challenge for Io Shirai's NXT Women's Championship at TakeOver XXX on Saturday, August 22.

Priest, Holland, or Lorcan will become the next wrestler to qualify for the five-man ladder match for the vacant North American Championship that's taking place at TakeOver. Reed and Dexter Lumis are the first two participants who have qualified.

In his TakeOver qualifier, Reed defeated Johnny Gargano and Roderick Strong in a triple threat match.

WWE uploaded a post-show interview with Grimes after this week's NXT where he vowed to teach Lee a lesson about respect. There was a segment on this week's show where Lee called out Karrion Kross but Grimes appeared instead and got laid out by Lee.

Though Lee told Kross to name the time and place for them to face each other, NXT general manager William Regal said later in the show that he won't be bullied into making title matches. Regal said title shots have to be earned.
