Two major matches have been added to this week’s NXT episode.
First off, NXT General Manager William Regal has made a North American Championship match official. Dexter Lumis will face champion Damian Priest for the belt. Regal says he’s been impressed with Lumis since he returned from injury and wants to give him an opportunity.
I have been extremely impressed with @ArcherOfInfamy as of late, and as a fighting champion, he should welcome all challengers. @DexterLumis was unfortunately injured before his last opportunity … but he’ll have it tomorrow night! Lumis vs Priest for the #NXTNATitle! #WWENXT

Meanwhile, the next challengers for the tag titles will be determined. Danny Burch and Oney Lorcan will face off against Roderick Strong and Bobby Fish in an eliminator. The winners will get to face Breezango at a later date.
Here’s how WWE.com hypes the match:
Burch & Lorcan have yet to taste championship gold, but they’ve long been one of the black-and-gold brand’s hardest-hitting duos. Meanwhile, Strong & Fish have their sights set on an unprecedented fourth NXT Tag Team Championship for The Undisputed ERA.
