The NXT Championship is a Professional Wrestling Championship owned by NSW and is competed for exclusively in NXT, NSW's Developmental territory. The championship is generally contested in Professional Wrestling matches.


The NXT Championship is a division title in Non Stop Wrestling for the NXT roster, The title created on the NXT 4th show.

Main roster spot

When a superstar wins the title if they win 2 more matches in a row they then can face a main roster superstar and if they win that match they will become a member of the main roster and the title will be forfeited.

If the Superstar loses the main roster match they will still hold the NXT title and need to win another two matches before they will get the another main roster spot match.

A Superstar must win 3 in a row at one time once they lose and then regain the title they must win 3 in a row nothing is carried over.

Starting from season 3 the chance to go to the main roster was stopped when defending the title twice.

Current champion

Haldo O'Neil is in his first regain as champion after he cashed in the shot he won after beating Thomas Starr early on the same night and after the main event beat Hollywood Mayham to become champion.


Matt Rhoads and The Raider hold the most reigns with two each.
