We noted before how the NXT Champion Aleister Black was expected to defend his title against Lars Sullivan at the upcoming NXT Takeover: Chicago II event.

This match was made official during the latest episode of NXT when Lars interrupted the title holder during a promo.

Sullivan went on to hit him with a Freak Accident after revealing that the General Manager William Regal has announced him as the new #1 Contender for the title.

The show also saw Johnny Gargano submitting his signed contract for the upcoming street fight against former partner Tommaso Ciampa at the upcoming special.

While Ciampa didn’t do the same publicly, WWE.com later confirmed that this match is now official for the upcoming event from Chicago next month.

Several other matches like Ricochet vs. Velveteen Dream and Nikki Cross vs. Shayna Baszler for the NXT Women’s Championship were also teased but they are yet to be announced officially.

After the latest episode of NXT, here is the updated match card for the upcoming show:

NXT Championship Match: Lars Sullivan vs. Aleister Black

NXT Tag Team Championship Match: Danny Burch and Oney Lorcan vs. Roderick Strong and Kyle O’Reilly

Street Fight: Tommaso Ciampa vs. Johnny Gargano
