Roderick Strong is ready to celebrate the holidays with an open challenge.
The NXT North American Champion will have an open challenge on the December 25 episode of NXT. Strong will be the latest member of The Undisputed Era to defend his title after Adam Cole retained his NXT Championship against Finn Balor on December 18 and before that, Strong and Kyle O’Reilly defeated Keith Lee and Dominik Dijakovic in late November to retain the NXT Tag Team titles.
Also announced for next week’s episode of NXT is a tag team match between the team of Lio Rush and Lee against the team of Damian Priest and Tony Nese. This will be Rush’s first match on NXT programming after he lost the NXT Cruiserweight title to Angel Garza.
