WWE NXT General Manager William Regal has announced a co-main event for Night Two of the “Takeover: Stand and Deliver” event during WrestleMania 37 Week.

It was announced on tonight’s show that Adam Cole vs. Kyle O’Reilly will take place during Night Two. This is billed as a “No Rules, No Liability, Unsanctioned Match” with the storyline being both competitors had to agree that NXT will not be responsible for what might happen to them. This was a requirement as O’Reilly is still not medically cleared to compete, in the storylines.

Tonight’s NXT show saw Escobar and Devlin face off in the middle of the ring after Devlin’s non-title win over Kushida. WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels then came out and slid a ladder in between the two champions. NXT later mentioned on Twitter that the challenge was accepted, making it a Ladder Match for the Title Unification.
