NXT ON USA: Lumis out of North American title ladder match, changes announced

Posted on 8/06/120 by Colin Vassallo

There were some changes made to the NXT North American title
ladder match qualifiers after NXT General Manager William
Regal announced last night that Dexter Lumis suffered an
ankle injury and will not be medically cleared to compete at
Takeover: XXX.

Lumis was the second one to qualify for the ladder match
after he choked out Timothy Thatcher in a triple threat
match that involved Finn Balor as well.

Regal announced that the four individuals who have not been
pinned or submitted in the triple threat matches will get a
second chance in two weeks time to earn the final two spots
in the ladder match.

So far, Finn Balor, Johnny Gargano, and Holland Ridge were
not involved in the decisions so they will be in two, one-
on-one matches which will happen in two weeks time. The
remaining participant will be determined next week after the
final triple threat match takes place on NXT. Kushida and
Cameron Grimes are confirmed for next weeks triple threat
match while the third participant remains unknown.

The winners of the two singles matches will then be added to
the ladder match at Takeover: XXX.
