To open last week’s episode of NXT on the USA Network, Leon Ruff defeated Johnny Gargano to become the new North American Champion. Gargano “rigged” a wheel that had a list of opponents on it to land on Ruff’s name specifically and ended up dropping the title to the former EVOLVE staple. On this week’s edition of NXT, Gargano is getting his rematch as he’ll take on Ruff in an attempt to reclaim the North American Championship.

Johnny Gargano became a two-time North American Champion at the Halloween Havoc event by defeating Damian Priest via an assist from Indi Hartwell. Hartwell is working with Candice LeRae as well and attempted to help LeRae become NXT Women’s Champion at Halloween Havoc.

While mentioning the NXT Women’s Title, the champion Io Shirai is set to defend her title against Rhea Ripley on the 11/18 episode of the show.
