The NXT North American Championship is the brand's secondary title and was introduced on the 7th March, 2018 set of NXT tapings (episode aired on March 28). The first ever NXT North American Champion was crowned at NXT TakeOver: New Orleans in a six-man ladder match involving EC3, Lars Sullivan, The Velveteen Dream, Ricochet, Killian Dain, and inaugural winner Adam Cole. The North American Championship can be considered as a stepping stone for NXT superstars.
