Axiom Qualifies For NXT North American Title Match At NXT Stand And Deliver

Axiom is headed to Hollywood.

The March 28 episode of WWE NXT kicked off with a 20-man battle royal to determine the fifth and final participant in the five-way NXT North American Championship match at NXT Stand & Deliver this Saturday.

The bout came down to Axiom, Nathan Frazer, Dabba-Kato, and Charlie Dempsey before it took all three men to eliminate Dabba-Kato. Then, Axiom slugged it out with Dempsey before kicking him out. In the closing minutes, Axiom and Frazer kept the action fast-paced until Frazer was ultimately tossed over the top rope.

As a result, Wes Lee will now defend his North American title against Axiom, JD McDonagh, Ilja Dragunov, and the debuting Dragon Lee this Saturday.
