WWE Announces NXT TakeOver XXX

Tonight's NXT was full of stellar matches, but that's just the appetizer to the meal that is TakeOver XXX, and now we have all the details. WWE announced that NXT TakeOver XXX will take place on Saturday, August 22nd (the weekend of SummerSlam), and will stream on the WWE Network. The 30th installment of NXT's premier event doesn't have a full card yet, but we do know of at least one match, which will be to decide who the new North American Champion ends up being.

Keith Lee kicked all that into motion when he relinquished the North American Championship, and tonight the first of several Triple Threat Matches was held to decide who will be competing in the TakeOver Ladder Match.

First up was Johnny Gargano, Bronson Reed, and Roderick Strong, and after a hard-fought match, it was Bronson Reed who ended up claiming victory. Next week will feature another Triple Threat Qualifier, which will involve Finn Balor, Dexter Lumis, and Timothy Thatcher.
