Adam Cole's second title defense.

Wolfgang was last seen on WWE programming during an episode of NXT TV last September when he challenged Pete Dunne for the WWE United Kingdom Championship and the match came to a halt as Dunne and Wolfgang were both attacked by The Undisputed Era.

Here's the official announcement from WWE concerning the NXT North American Championship match:


"If U.K. Superstar Wolfgang has his way, Adam Cole’s NXT North American Championship could soon be headed to Scotland.

The dynamic and powerful Wolfgang will challenge The Panama City Playboy for NXT’s newest title at the NXT U.K. Championship special, which takes place during WWE’s second night of action at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall in London, streaming on WWE Network on Tuesday, June 26.

In his past appearances in the 2017 WWE U.K. Championship Tournament and on NXT, Wolfgang has never failed to captivate, thanks to his exciting mash-up of brawling and high-flying. 

Wolfgang and Cole have crossed paths before. After WWE U.K. Champion Pete Dunne narrowly defeated Wolfgang on WWE NXT last September, Undisputed ERA jumped The BruiserWeight, prompting Wolfgang to try to even the odds for his fellow U.K. competitor. Putting any lingering animosity aside, it’s safe to say that Wolfgang has his gaze fixed on snaring the newly minted NXT North American Title. 

Find out who will leave Royal Albert Hall with the North American crown when Wolfgang and Cole do battle at the NXT U.K. Championship special, streaming on WWE Network on Tuesday, June 26, at 3 p.m. ET/8 p.m. BST."


As it is mentioned in the announcement, day one and day two of the WWE United Kingdom Championship tournament will air on the WWE Network next Monday and Tuesday. On day one of the tournament The Undisputed Era (Adam Cole, Roderick Strong & Kyle O'Reilly) will be taking on British Strong Style (Pete Dunne, Tyler Bate & Trent Seven) and there will also be an NXT Women's Championship match taking place on day-two of the tournament.
