WWE has started to advertise some matches for next week's edition of NXT on the USA Network. NXT Champion Keith Lee will be in action against Cameron Grimes. This follows an attack that Grimes made on the champ last week, which resulted in an injury to Grimes. Additionally, Bronson Reed, fresh off his qualifying for the NXT North American Championship match, will follow his recent victories over Johnny Gargano and Roderick Strong with a match against Shane Thorne.
Keith Lee to face Cameron Grimes
Cameron Grimes had big plans for the most recent episode of NXT. He wanted to take out NXT Champion Keith Lee and end the month of July with the title around his waist.
Instead, Lee sent Grimes to the moon with a devastating Spirit Bomb.
Grimes suffered a jaw contusion as a result and went off in a WWE Network exclusive. Grimes called Lee a “coward” and promised to teach the champion a lesson about respect.
Will Grimes be successful? Find out when he faces Lee in a one-on-one match this Wednesday at 8/7 C on USA Network.
Bronson Reed vs. Shane Thorne
Bronson Reed is poised for a breakout summer, defeating Roderick Strong and Johnny Gargano to secure a coveted opportunity to compete for the NXT North American Championship in a 6-Man Ladder Match at NXT TakeOver XXX. But fellow Aussie Shane Thorne hopes to stop his momentum this Wednesday on NXT.
Can Thorne topple The Aus-zilla in one-on-one action? Find out live on NXT, Wednesday at 8/7 on USA Network.
