One more for the pile. While the main roster shows seem to have one change after another, “NXT” has managed to find a very solid balance for itself over the last few years. With its three titles, things have settled into a status quo that works very well and rarely changes. Now though, a big change is coming.

You can read this week’s “NXT” results here.

As announced on, a fourth title will be added to NXT with the inaugural champion being crowned at “Takeover: New Orleans”. At tonight’s “NXT” tapings, General Manager William Regal announced the creation of the North American Championship. The first champion will be crowned in a six man ladder match contested between Velveteen Dream, EC3, Ricochet, Killian Dain, Lars Sullivan and Adam Cole.

Opinion: Well it’s different than another tournament. I had been wondering how all these names would fit into the upcoming “Takeover” card and this is about as good of an idea as there is out there. You could really go with any of these names to win and it’s a good idea to have them all on the show. The match should be a lot of fun and can get the ball rolling on the title in a hurry.

This is an option as well.
