WWE confirms NXT North American Championship

Earlier today, a story broke involving a possible secondary title for NXT. With the NXT Title, the NXT Women’s Title, and the NXT Tag Team Titles, this would mark four for the developmental brand.

It seems that the rumors were true, as WWE themselves revealed on Twitter today.

The NXT North American Championship will be decided at NXT Takeover: New Orleans in a Six-Man Ladder Match. The competitors are Adam Cole, Velveteen Dream, Killian Dain, Lars Sullivan, and the newest additions to NXT, Ricochet, and EC3.

Ricochet and EC3 joined the NXT roster in early 2018 and have yet to debut in-ring on NXT, though EC3 made an appearance in the crowd at NXT Takeover: Philadelphia.

    I disagree. As an Australian I feel there is absolutely no need for a European belt when the UK belt is already around… It’s not like it will ever be defended in its region of origin… especially in NXT, so keeping a belt more local for the show it will be present on is much more logical. We all know this is basically NXTs US title equivalent, so either name it Canadian Championship or North American is fine in my eyes.
    I’d prefer the Europe title to be on a show I actually watch anyway and apart from Ember Moon and Aleister Black, I couldn’t care less over the program.

    Not necessarily, that’s just American logic (or in this case WWE logic)

    If it was the UK title then it would mean just the United Kingdom meaning just England,Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Europe would mean an entire continent of countries which would mean they could keep the belts separate

    Yeah I know, but generally an American company that does 95% of their live shows in North America, you aint going to get 2 titles from the same international region. In all respects, the UK title is the European belt.

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    The UK & European belts are totally different, there’s a huge difference between UK & Europe

  • JAckh45

    What do you think the UK Championship is??

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    They shouldve just bought back the European title tbh

    so NXT now has a midcard title to match the main eventers, womens and tag team divisions. makes sense cause NXT really needed a midcard title anyway.
