North American title steel cage match announced for WWE NXT

The NXT North American Championship will be on the line inside of a steel cage next Tuesday.

WWE has announced that North American Champion Johnny Gargano will defend his title against Bronson Reed in a steel cage match on next Tuesday's episode of NXT. Reed defeated Gargano's The Way stablemate Austin Theory two weeks ago to get the title shot.

This will be the second time Reed has challenged Gargano for the North American Championship. Gargano defeated Reed to retain the title at TakeOver: Stand & Deliver night two last month. At night one, Reed won a number one contender's Gauntlet Eliminator match to set up the title match for night two.

There was an angle on tonight's NXT where it was shown that Gargano and Theory had attacked Reed backstage. Reed said Gargano is a dead man. Later in the show, Reed cut a promo where he announced that NXT general manager William Regal had agreed to make next week's North American title match a steel cage match.

Zoey Stark vs. Toni Storm has also been announced for next Tuesday's NXT. They've been feuding since Stark defeated Storm on the pre-show for TakeOver: Stand & Deliver night one.
