WWE announces Keith Lee segment for NXT


Newly crowned double champion Keith Lee is set to make an appearance on this week's episode of NXT.

WWE has announced that Lee will "address the NXT Universe" on NXT this Wednesday. Lee defeated Adam Cole in the main event of Great American Bash night two last week, winning the NXT Championship and retaining the NXT North American Championship. wrote about Lee's segment for this week's show:

Keith Lee will be on NXT tomorrow night to usher in NXT’s Limitless era.

Lee made history last week, closing out The Great American Bash by ending Adam Cole’s record-breaking NXT Championship reign. He adds NXT’s top prize to his mantle alongside the North American Title and is now the black-and-gold brand’s first double champion.

Now with two titles to his name, Lee is certain to face an extraordinarily long list of challengers. And might it include Karrion Kross?

Kross and Scarlett were seen looking on during Lee’s victory celebration. Given Kross’ path of destruction and his willingness to take on anyone, might he have Lee and his newly won NXT Title in his sights?

Don’t miss what the new NXT Champion has to say tomorrow night at 8/7 C on USA Network!

Two matches have also been announced for this week's NXT. Io Shirai will defend her NXT Women's Championship against Tegan Nox, while Damian Priest will face off with Cameron Grimes.

Nox became the number one contender to Shirai's title by defeating Dakota Kai, Mia Yim, and Candice LeRae in a fatal four-way elimination match at Great American Bash night one two weeks ago.

Priest vs. Grimes is a rematch from last month, where Grimes defeated Priest after an angle where he apparently attacked Priest in the parking lot before the show.
