NXT Champion Adam Cole closed the chapter on Velveteen Dream last weekend after defeating him at NXT TakeOver: In Your House, but he still has challengers to deal with.

WWE announced that Cole will face Dexter Lumis in a non-title match on this week’s episode of NXT. The two have faced off in some tag matches and Lumis even appeared during the Backlot Brawl, where he had Cole’s Undisputed Era teammates in the back of his car’s trunk.

Here’s how WWE hypes up the match:

Adam Cole is still NXT Champion, but any celebration he had planned will again be on hold as he’ll face the bizarre Dexter Lumis in a non-title match this Wednesday on USA Network.

While Cole fended off Velveteen Dream in a wild Backlot Brawl for the NXT Title at NXT TakeOver: In Your House, Lumis made his presence felt as well. Demonstrating a strange obsession with The Undisputed ERA in recent weeks, Lumis made his art a reality when he showed up to Cole’s Backlot Brawl with Velveteen Dream, packing Roderick Strong and Bobby Fish into the trunk of a car and driving off into the night.

Just what kind of condition will The Panama City Playboy be in after another successful but brutal title defense? And will his Undisputed ERA allies be in any condition to have his back — that is, if they’ll even be around at all?
