As announced at NXT TakeOver: In Your House, The Great American Bash will make a return for 2021 on Wednesday July 6th.
On this week’s episode of NXT the first match of that event was announced to be Adam Cole once again facing Kyle O’Reilly.
The two originally met at NXT TakeOver: Stand And Deliver in April when O’Reilly emerged victorious in a vicious Unsanctioned Match.
Cole made his return to the ring during the In Your House main event when he and O’Reilly, alongside Finn Balor and Pete Dunne all attempted unsuccessfully to take Karrion Kross’ NXT Championship belt.
This week the two engaged in a pull apart brawl that ended with the new NXT enforcer Samoa Joe putting Cole to sleep to end the unrest.
In addition to their match at The Bash, NXT General Manager allowed both men to pick their opponents for warm up matches next week. O’Reilly has already nominated NXT Cruiserweight Champion KUSHIDA as his opponent whilst Cole has yet to reveal his.
