After surviving a grueling Gauntlet Eliminator, Bronson Reed is one step away from capturing championship gold.
The Colossal Superstar will challenge Johnny Gargano for the NXT North American Title on Night 2 of NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver on Thursday.
Qualifying for the six-man Gauntlet Eliminator with an impressive showing in last week’s Battle Royal on NXT, Reed carried the momentum to the first night of TakeOver. Besides showcasing his trademark power, Reed also showed off impressive endurance going the distance, last eliminating Isaiah “Swerve” Scott with the Tsunami splash after entering third.
One might think a champion would be licking his chops at the thought of facing a foe one night after such an exhausting test. But Gargano has complained about the “unfair” situation since the moment NXT General Manager William Regal announced the match.
Does Reed have enough left in the tank to knock off Gargano and claim his first title in NXT? Find out on Night 2 of NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver on Thursday at 8/7 C, streaming exclusively on Peacock in the U.S. and on WWE Network everywhere else.
