On the first part of NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver on Wednesday 7th April, a Gauntlet Eliminator match took place to determine the challenger for Johnny Gargano’s North American Championship on night two. The match was won by Bronson Reed who last eliminated Isaiah ‘Swerve’ Scott to win the match and secure the title shot.

A Gauntlet Eliminator was essentially the same format as an Elimination Chamber match only without the cage. Two men started in the ring (Scott and Leon Ruff), with the other four men entering at pre-determined intervals.

Before Reed won the match, Ruff, Dextor Lumis, LA Knight and Cameron Grimes were eliminated before the self-proclaimed Thicc Boi hit a top-rope Tsunami Splash to secure the pin and the win.

The second night of NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver takes place tonight, Thursday 8th April 2021. You can get all the info you need about the event with our handy explainer guide.
