This week's NXT was full of heavy-hitting matches, and while next week's NXT takes place over the holidays, that doesn't mean they are resting on their laurels. During tonight's broadcast, NXT announced that current North American Champion Roderick Strong has issued a North American Championship Challenge for next week's episode, and we are definitely intrigued to see who answers the call. Odds are a certain Velveteen Dream might make his presence felt, but guess we'll have to wait and see.
Dream is the one that Strong took that North American Championship belt from in the first place, but it is believed that Dream was also nursing an injury, which helped lead to Strong's victory.
If he's healthy, could we see Dream come back for his title? It would certainly be a great way to round out 2019, wouldn't it?
