Ricochet got his wish.
Last week on NXT Takeover, Adam Cole told Ricochet and the fans at home he did not want to face Ricochet because he's not special enough and must get on his level. This week on NXT, General Manager William Regal announced Adam Cole would be defending his NXT North American Championship against Ricochet at the upcoming NXT Takeover Event on August 18th.
Cole won the Championship in a ladder match at NXT Takeover: New Orleans and two other athletes in that match were EC3 and Velveteen Dream who Regal also announced for a match at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn 4.
Besides the ladder match, Cole and Ricochet have only wrestled one other time on NXT programming while EC3 and Velveteen tag teamed with each other at the United Kingdom tournament event.
Also during the show, the NXT Tag Team Championship match for NXT Takeover between Moustache Mountain and Undisputed Era was created. The Champions Kyle O'Reilly and Roderick Strong were interviewed about the match.
NXT Takeover: Brooklyn 4 will have live coverage and a recapping podcast.
