WWE NXT preview, April 1, 2020: North American Title Match set for TakeOver comes to USA
The NXT North American Championship is on the line tonight in a huge Triple Threat Match that was originally scheduled for NXT TakeOver. Both Lee and Dijakovic have felt the wrath of Priest and his nightstick in recent weeks, but any sort of alliance goes out the window under Triple Threat rules, as the first Superstar to score a pinfall or submission will be declared the winner. Who will walk out of this TakeOver showdown with the NXT North American Championship? Find out on NXT, tonight at 8/7 C on USA!
Keith Lee defends NXT North American Title against Dijakovic and Priest tonight on USA Network
The NXT North American Championship will be on the line tonight on USA Network, when Keith Lee defends his title against Dominik Dijakovic and Damian Priest in a Triple Threat Match originally set to take place at NXT TakeOver.
There is no love lost between Lee and Dijakovic, as the two have redefined what big men can do in the ring with their recent series of epic battles, which Lee won the rubber match of at TakeOver: Portland. However, both men have found themselves in the crosshairs of Damian Priest, who attacked both men with a nightstick in recent weeks, even taking Dijakovic out of action for several weeks.
The momentum is seemingly in Dijakovic’s favor, as he took both Lee and Priest out with a huge senton off the ropes last Wednesday. But will that momentum carry over?

The Velveteen Dream takes on Bobby Fish tonight on NXT
While he may have his sights set on NXT Champion Adam Cole, The Velveteen Dream will have to deal with another Undisputed ERA member before getting to The Panama City Playboy, as he will face Bobby Fish tonight.
Cole, in a message celebrating becoming the longest-reigning NXT Champion of all time, said his running buddies were hungry to get their hands on His Purple Highness, with Fish stepping up first. Dream was happy to accept the challenge.
Will Dream run through the former NXT Tag Team Champion as he seeks to take the NXT Title, or will his battle with Fish prove that he is undisputedly unqualified to challenge Cole? Find out tonight on NXT at 8/7 C on USA!
