WWE NXT notes: Two title matches next week, Chelsea Green qualifies for TakeOver Ladder match

Next week's NXT will broadcast live from the WWE Performance Center in Orlando and it'll feature two title matches and Johnny Gargano live to address Tommaso Ciampa.

Next week’s episode of NXT on the USA Network will broadcast live from the WWE Performance Center in Orlando as Full Sail University has commitments to follow up on. The fans inside of the PC will see two title matches as Keith Lee defends his North American Championship against Cameron Grimes. This match came about when Grimes interrupted Lee’s promo and stated that William Regal granted him the opportunity and Lee accepted and then shoved Grimes out of the ring.

The second of two title matches will feature a rematch from TakeOver: Portland as The Broserweights (Matt Riddle & Pete Dunne) defend the NXT Tag Team Championships against Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish of The Undisputed ERA.

Johnny Gargano did a sit-down interview with Mauro Ranallo and Johnny repeatedly told Mauro that he [Mauro] knows why he cost Tommaso Ciampa the NXT Championship at TakeOver: Portland. This led to Gargano getting physical with Mauro and shortly after, Mauro exited the interview.

Coming off of being RKO’d by Randy Orton on RAW, Beth Phoenix was not on commentary for this week’s NXT.

Also, Chelsea Green picked up a win over Shotzi Blackheart and with that victory, she secured her spot in the Ladder match at TakeOver: Tampa and the winner of that match will become the #1 contender to the NXT Women’s Championship. The current champion Rhea Ripley is defending her title against Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania 36.
