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.
