As noted in our spoiler report from Wednesday’s NXT tapings, the winner of a ladder match featuring Killian Dain, Velveteen Dream, Lars Sullivan, EC3, Adam Cole and Ricochet will be crowned the new NXT North American Championship.
While discussing the NXT Takeover: New Orleans card during Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer speculated that because there is a ladder match at Takeover, the company will probably not have one the following night at WrestleMania.
“My gut is there is no ladder match at WrestleMania because it makes no sense to do a latter match on Saturday before WrestleMania if you are going to do one at WrestleMania.”
It was previously rumored that the Intercontinental Championship title could be defended in ladder match featuring 5 participants. It appears those plans may no longer be in the books.
