Title match announced for NXT on USA's debut
Submitted by Aaron Rift on 09/05/2019 at 08:09 AM

WWE announced the following:

Itís official: Roderick Strong not only has Velveteen Dreamís attention, but also an opportunity at Dreamís coveted NXT North American Title.

And all it took was setting the championís signature purple couch ablaze.

The Messiah of the Backbreaker resorted to that very extreme tactic on the Sept. 4 edition of NXT, torching the sofa to provoke Dream into granting him his long-awaited one-on-one title bout. The match will take place Wednesday, Sept. 18 Ė on the night of NXTís live debut on USA Network.

Strong challenged for the title in a Triple Threat Match at last monthís TakeOver: Toronto. He fell short of unseating Dream as champion, but he didnít suffer the losing fall, a point that Strong has emphasized ever since.

After Bobby Fish & Kyle OíReillyís NXT Tag Team Title win, Strong remains the only member of The Undisputed ERA without a championship. The factionís bold prophecy that theyíd all be draped in gold within the year hinges on Strong dethroning the NXT North American Champion.

Can the vertebrae-smashing Messiah of the Backbreaker bring The Undisputed ERAís plan to fruition? Or will the resourceful and preternaturally skilled North American Champion retain?

Find out when NXT airs live Wednesday, Sept. 18, at 8/7 C.
