WWE Announces Change To NXT Number One Contender’s Match Due To Ivar Injury

— Although the show was pre-taped last week and spoilers for it are already online, WWE officially announced a change to one of the matches for this week’s NXT that was being promoted.

— The match in question is a triple threat bout that was set to feature Wes Lee vs. Josh Briggs vs. Ivar, but as has been reported extensively over the last week, Ivar is dealing with a potentially serious neck injury and is out of action indefinitely. As a result, the match that will air is Lee vs. Briggs vs. Wes Lee vs. Joe Coffey. To explain this change from a storyline perspective, last week’s NXT ended with Ivar, Briggs and Lee being laid out by a returning Gallus and Ivar’s injuries were explained by that attack. Briggs and Lee then asked NXT GM Ava to add Coffey in Ivar’s place so they could get their revenge on the attack.

— The winner of this triple threat match takes on reigning NXT North American Champion Oba Femi at NXT Battleground on Sunday, June 9.
