As announced last week, Oba Femi will defend his North American Title at the NXT Battleground 2024 premium live event. The two challengers for this title match were declared during this week’s NXT where another triple threat contender’s match was in store featuring Wes Lee, Josh Briggs, and Joe Coffey.

Gallus assaulted Josh Briggs during the Triple Threat Match which led Briggs to get knocked out of the ring while Wes Lee was also down after a discus lariat by Joe Coffey. Lee and Coffey collapsed on Briggs’s prone body which led to a double pin and both men winning the match.

Later on the show, WWE NXT General Manager Ava Raine made it official that Coffey and Lee would now face Femi in a Triple Threat match at NXT Battleground 2024. Originally, Ivar was supposed to compete in the contender’s match but he’s out with an injury and Coffey was declared to be his replacement in the match. Femi has been NXT North American Champion since January 9th after he dethroned Dragon Lee on NXT.
