The NXT North American Championship and NXT Tag Team titles will be on the line in a winner-take-all six-man tag match at TakeOver: In Your House.

On tonight's NXT, it was announced that NXT North American Champion Bronson Reed & NXT Tag Team Champions MSK (Wes Lee & Nash Carter) will face Legado del Fantasma (Santos Escobar, Raul Mendoza & Joaquin Wilde) in a six-man tag match at TakeOver: In Your House this Sunday. If Reed & MSK win, they'll retain their titles. If Legado del Fantasma win, Escobar will become the NXT North American Champion and Mendoza & Wilde will become the NXT Tag Team Champions.

Reed defeated Johnny Gargano in a steel cage match to win the North American Championship on NXT three weeks ago. MSK have been NXT Tag Team Champions since winning the titles atĀ TakeOver: Stand & Deliver this April.

Legado del Fantasma confronted Reed on NXT two weeks ago and were about to attack him, but MSK came out to even the odds. Reed and MSK then sent Escobar, Mendoza, and Wilde packing.

Reed returned the favor during MSK's NXT Tag Team title defense against Mendoza & Wilde last week. After Escobar interfered, Reed charged atĀ Escobar and squished him against the barricade. MSK then defeated Mendoza & Wilde to retain their Tag Team titles.

MSK again came out to back up Reed during a confrontation with Legado del Fantasma on tonight's NXT. Legado del Fantasma bailed when MSK entered. Escobar then proposed the winner-take-all six-man tag match for TakeOver -- and Reed & MSK accepted the challenge.

This is the fifth match to be announced for Sunday's TakeOver: In Your House event. Here's the updated card for the show:

  • NXT Champion Karrion Kross defends against Kyle O'Reilly, Pete Dunne, Johnny Gargano, and Adam Cole in a fatal five-way match'
