The opening segment of tonight’s episode of WWE NXT saw Keith Lee address the fans in a white hot segment, officially announcing that he will challenge Roderick Strong for the NXT North American Championship, live next Wednesday night.
The big question heading into next week’s title match will be the condition of Lee’s ankle. The big man was assaulted by all four members of the Undisputed Era, resulting in his ankle being smashed inside of a steel chair. Tommaso Ciampia eventually made the save, but it was clear that the damage had been done.
