Keith Lee defending NXT North American Title against Johnny Gargano at TakeOver: In Your House

Keith Lee vs. Johnny Gargano for the NXT North American Championship has been added to TakeOver: In Your House and it is one of three championship matches on the show.

With the addition of the NXT Championship match between Adam Cole and Velveteen Dream being made official for TakeOver: In Your House, WWE announced another championship bout for the show as Keith Lee will put his North American Title on the line against Johnny Gargano.

Lee and Gargano engaged in a feud when Gargano and Candice LeRae attempted to ambush Mia Yim. Lee came in for the save and issued a challenge to Gargano for TakeOver. On the May 27th edition of NXT on the USA Network, the feud between the two sides continued and it led to a match between LeRae and Yim being made official for next week’s NXT.

 

Just days after LeRae and Yim clash, Gargano and Lee will meet at TakeOver with the North American Championship on the line. There are now five matches set for TakeOver: In Your House and here’s the updated lineup:

* Tommaso Ciampa vs. Karrion Kross (w/ Scarlett)
* NXT Women’s Championship — Triple-Threat Match: Charlotte Flair (c) vs. Rhea Ripley vs. Io Shirai
* Damian Priest vs. Finn Balor
* NXT Championship: Adam Cole (c) vs. Velveteen Dream
* NXT North American Championship: Keith Lee (c) vs. Johnny Gargano
