It has been confirmed by WWE that NXT Champion Keith Lee has relinquished his NXT North American Championship, and a new champion will be crowned at NXT Takeover XXX which will take place on Saturday 22nd August, the night before this year’s Summerslam.

Lee became ‘champ-champ’ after defeating Adam Cole for his NXT Championship in a winner takes all match at the Great American Bash two weeks ago.

The new NXT North American Champion will be determined the same way the inaugural title holder was crowned in New Orleans two years ago in a multi-man ladder match.

A series of triple threat matches will take place over the new few weeks on NXT, and will determine who will be part of the multi-superstar line up. Last night on NXT Branson Reed became the first superstar to confirm his spot in the ladder match by defeating Johnny Gargano and Roderick Strong.

On next week’s NXT Finn Balor, Dexter Lumis and Timothy Thatcher will compete for another spot in this already greatly anticipated ladder match.

If the ladder match at the 30th Takeover event is even close to the standard as the six-man bout to crown the first champion, then the high stakes bout pencilled in for 22nd August will be one for the ages.
