WWE NXT Champion and NXT North American Champion Keith Lee has been confirmed for a segment during tomorrow’s NXT episode on the USA Network.
WWE just announced that Lee will appear on this week’s show to address the NXT Universe. This will be his first appearance since last week’s historic “Winner Takes All” win over former NXT Champion Adam Cole in the main event of NXT’s Great American Bash Night Two.
WWE is teasing that Karrion Kross and Scarlett may interrupt the segment as Lee brings the brand into the Limitless Era. Kross vs. Lee for one of his titles has been rumored for the Takeover event that is scheduled for SummerSlam Weekend on Saturday, August 22.
Above is a new promo for this week’s show, with another tease for Kross and Lee.

New NXT Champion Keith Lee to address the NXT Universe
Keith Lee will be on NXT tomorrow night to usher in NXT’s Limitless era.
Lee made history last week, closing out The Great American Bash by ending Adam Cole’s record-breaking NXT Championship reign. He adds NXT’s top prize to his mantle alongside the North American Title and is now the black-and-gold brand’s first double champion.
Now with two titles to his name, Lee is certain to face an extraordinarily long list of challengers. And might it include Karrion Kross?
Kross and Scarlett were seen looking on during Lee’s victory celebration. Given Kross’ path of destruction and his willingness to take on anyone, might he have Lee and his newly won NXT Title in his sights?
Don’t miss what the new NXT Champion has to say tomorrow night at 8/7 C on USA Network!
