Adam Cole to defend NXT North American title in EVOLVE


Adam Cole is set to defend his NXT North American Championship outside of WWE later this month.

WWE announced today that Cole will be putting his title on the line at EVOLVE 107 in Melrose, Massachusetts on June 24th. Cole's opponent will be revealed this coming Monday.

Whether Cole's match will be airing on the iPPV broadcast or not is to be determined. He previously wrestled for EVOLVE four times during the promotion's first year.

With Steffanie Newell (the former Nixon Newell) challenging for Jinny's PROGRESS Women's Championship this weekend, Cole's match will be the second time an NXT roster member has wrestled for a WWE-friendly promotion this month.

Austin Theory defending his WWN Championship against an opponent that has yet to be announced, Matt Riddle vs. DJZ, WALTER vs. AR Fox, Tracy Williams vs. Chris Dickinson, Darby Allin vs. Jarek 1:20, and Jaka vs. Bad Bones vs. Josh Briggs are the other matches that have been confirmed for EVOLVE 107.

Cole became the first-ever NXT North American Championship when he defeated Ricochet, EC3, Velveteen Dream, Killian Dain, and Lars Sullivan in a ladder match at TakeOver: New Orleans in April.
