Dominik Mysterio To Defend NXT NA Title In Triple Threat Match At Great American Bash

The reigning and defending "NXT" North American Champion will be in action at the "NXT" Great American Bash on July 30. On tonight's "WWE NXT," it was announced that Dominik Mysterio will defend his title against former "NXT" North American Champion Wes Lee and "free agent" Mustafa Ali. The announcement was made while the Judgment Day member and his "Mami" Rhea Ripley were celebrating Mysterio's championship reign, but were interrupted by Lee, who was then interrupted by Ali. Ali had initially been set to challenge Lee for the title at the Cedar Park, TX event, but Dominik's recent win threw a wrench in those plans, now all three men will clash in the HEB Center.

The title is the first singles championship for the Mysterio family scion, who once held the "SmackDown" Tag Team Championship with his father, WWE Hall of Famer Rey Mysterio. Great American Bash will air on July 30 on Peacock and internationally on the WWE Network and will also feature Carmelo Hayes vs. Ilja Dragunov for the "NXT" Championship, Tiffany Stratton vs. Thea Hail for the "NXT" Women's Championship, Gallus vs. the D'Angelo Family for the "NXT" Tag Team Championship, Blair Davenport vs. Roxanne Perez, and as of Tuesday night, Gable Steveson vs. Baron Corbin.
