A triple threat match in the main event of last night's NXT set the stage for a winner-take-all title vs. title match.
Keith Lee defeated Finn Balor and Johnny Gargano on last night's show to retain his North American Championship. With that result, it will now officially be Adam Cole vs. Lee on the July 8 episode of NXT with Cole's NXT Championship and Lee's North American Championship both on the line.
Lee hit the Big Bang Catastrophe on Gargano near the end of the triple threat match. Balor jumped off the top rope with a Coup de Grace in an attempt to break up the pin, but Lee moved and Balor only hit Gargano. Lee then hit the Big Bang Catastrophe on Balor to get the win.
Cole came down to the ring after the match and had a staredown with Lee as the episode went off the air.
It was announced last night that the Great American Bash is returning for the next two weeks of NXT. Next Wednesday's show will have Dakota Kai vs. Tegan Nox vs. Candice LeRae vs. Mia Yim in a fatal four-way number one contender's match, Rhea Ripley vs. Aliyah & Robert Stone in a handicap match, and Dexter Lumis vs. Roderick Strong in a strap match.
If Ripley loses, she'll have to join the Robert Stone Brand.
