Johnny Gargano To Defend NXT North American Title Against Velveteen Dream Next Week

A big NXT North American Title match is set to headline next week's episode of NXT.

Last week, NXT announced that Johnny Gargano will defend his NXT North American Title against Velveteen Dream. The bout was set up on the Feb. 6 episode of NXT, with Dream coming out and declaring his intentions to challenge Gargano for his title. Dream earned a shot at the title of his choosing by virtue of winning the Worlds Collide tournament over WWE Royal Rumble weekend. You can view the segment in the video above.
