Two title matches official for next week's NXT


Two title matches are set for next week's episode of NXT.

NXT North American Champion Keith Lee will defend his title against Cameron Grimes on the show. There will also be an NXT Tag Team Championship match, with Matt Riddle & Pete Dunne defending their titles against former champions The Undisputed Era (Kyle O'Reilly & Bobby Fish).

The  North American title match was announced during a segment where Grimes interrupted Lee on tonight's NXT. O'Reilly & Fish defeated Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch on tonight's show and then cut a promo about wanting the NXT Tag Team titles back.

Riddle & Dunne came to the stage and said they're down to give O'Reilly & Fish a rematch. The Grizzled Young Veterans (Zack Gibson & James Drake) then attacked Riddle & Dunne. Gibson said he couldn't care less about O'Reilly & Fish's rematch clause. He said -- as far as the NXT Tag Team titles are concerned -- it's out with the old and in with The Grizzled Young Veterans.

Before interrupting Lee tonight, Grimes defeated Dominik Dijakovic on NXT last week. Damian Priest attacked Dijakovic's leg with a nightstick behind the referee's back during the match. It was teased that Dijakovic was going to lose by countout because of that, but he made it back into the ring just in time. Grimes then hit a double stomp and pinned him.

Lee became the NXT North American Champion by defeating Roderick Strong in January. He retained his title against Dijakovic at NXT TakeOver: Portland last month.

After winning this year's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, Riddle & Dunne defeated O'Reilly & Fish for the NXT Tag Team titles at TakeOver: Portland.

Next Wednesday's NXT is taking place at the WWE Performance Center due to Full Sail not being available. Next week is Full Sail University's annual Hall of Fame week.
