Per the order of NXT General Manager William Regal, WWE will unveil the brand new NXT North American Championship next month at NXT Takeover: New Orleans.

There has been discussion of WWE introducing a “midcard” title to the Wednesday night yellow brand for some time now, akin to the Intercontinental Championship on WWE RAW and the United States Championship on Smackdown Live, and that appears to be what they’re doing with the new North American title. At this point it’s unknown whether or not the company will allow the title to be defended outside of WWE like the UK Championship, but we’ll keep you posted.

A 6-Man Ladder Match has been announced for NXT Takeover: New Orleans in order to crown the inaugural champion.
