Keith Lee And Bronson Reed Set For Action On 8/5 NXT

NXT has added two more matchups to Wednesday's program.

WWE announced NXT Champion Keith Lee will take on Cameron Grimes on the August 5 edition of the show. Grimes tried to attack Lee last Wednesday as the champion was addressing Karrion Kross. His plane didn't work as Lee left him laying.

Cameron Grimes had big plans for the most recent episode of NXT. He wanted to take out NXT Champion Keith Lee and end the month of July with the title around his waist.

Instead, Lee sent Grimes to the moon with a devastating Spirit Bomb.

Grimes suffered a jaw contusion as a result and went off in a WWE Network exclusive. Grimes called Lee a “coward” and promised to teach the champion a lesson about respect.

Will Grimes be successful? Find out when he faces Lee in a one-on-one match this Wednesday at 8/7 C on USA Network.

WWE also announced Bronson Reed against Shane Thorne for Wednesday's program.

Bronson Reed is poised for a breakout summer, defeating Roderick Strong and Johnny Gargano to secure a coveted opportunity to compete for the NXT North American Championship in a 6-Man Ladder Match at NXT TakeOver XXX. But fellow Aussie Shane Thorne hopes to stop his momentum this Wednesday on NXT.

Can Thorne topple The Aus-zilla in one-on-one action? Find out live on NXT, Wednesday at 8/7 on USA Network.
