WATCH: Keith Lee Relinquishes NXT North American Title (VIDEO)

Keith Lee is no longer a WWE NXT Double Champion.

This week’s episode of NXT on USA saw the NXT World and North American Champion vacate the latter title.

During tonight’s WWE NXT on USA Network, NXT Champion Keith Lee made the announcement that he would be relinquishing his NXT North American Championship title in order to give other wrestlers the same opportunities he has had as the “Limitless” one.

Following the announcement from “Limitless” Lee, which also featured him telling the story of his emotional tribute to the late “Killer” Tim Brooks while special footage was shown, WWE announced how the title situation will be handled with the NXT North American Championship.

Later in the show, we saw Bronson Reed vs. Johnny Gargano vs. Roderick Strong in the first NXT North American Title Triple-Threat Match Series qualifier. Reed would go on to win the match, earning the first of three spots in the match announced to determine Lee’s successor.

Reed will face off against two future NXT North American Title Triple-Threat Match Qualifiers in a Triple-Threat Ladder Match with the vacant North American Championship on-the-line at the milestone NXT TakeOver event next month.

The NXT TakeOver XXX live special event on the WWE Network was announced during this week’s NXT On USA show for WWE SummerSlam 2020 weekend on Saturday, August 22, 2020. Make sure to join us here at eWrestling.com on 8/22 for LIVE NXT TakeOver XXX Results coverage!
