Wes Lee will defend NXT North American Championship in a fatal 5-way match at NXT Stand & Deliver 2023 event.
During this week’s NXT episode, Lee put out another open challenge to defend the title. This led to yet another mele as several wrestlers tried to get into the ring to get the title shot. Ultimately, Axiom got into the ring but Scrypts attacked him.
Lee was also caught in the crossfire, which lead to him hitting everyone brawling on the floor with a suicide dive. The match was called off after this. This is the second time Lee’s open challenge led to such a chaotic brawl.
Later, NXT Anonymous posted a video of Shawn Michaels talking to Wes Lee. Michaels told Lee to give him a break on the open challenges as they are leading to chaos backstage. Lee insisted that he was trying to prove himself as the champion every week. Lee asked for 10 challengers to face at NXT Stand & Deliver.
Michaels countered it by offering Lee a fatal 5-way match to defend the North American title. He also gave Lee the right to choose his challengers. The match was made official later. However, no participants are announced as of now.
NXT Stand & Deliver 2023 is set for a special start time of 1 PM ET on April 1 at Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, CA. Keep tuned in to find the list of participants for this match.
