Leon Ruff's first NXT North American title defense is set.
WWE announced that Ruff will defend his title against Johnny Gargano on the November 18 episode of NXT. Ruff defeated Gargano to win the title on November 11 after a wheel chose Ruff as Gargano's opponent.
Leon Ruff shocked the world and Johnny Gargano last week. Can he catch lightning in a bottle again and hold on to the NXT North American Championship?
Ruff will defend his newly won title against Gargano tomorrow night on NXT.
Despite admittedly rigging his own “Wheel of Challengers” to determine his opponent, Johnny Wrestling was unable to end his championship curse as Ruff pulled off one of the biggest upsets in the history of the black-and-gold brand.
After pleading his case, Gargano gets his chance to regain the championship gold. Will he become a three-time champion, or does Ruff simply have Gargano’s number?
Previously announced for NXT this week is Io Shirai vs. Rhea Ripley for the NXT Women's Championship as well as an update from NXT Champion Finn Balor on his recovery.
Fightful will have live coverage of NXT.
