Reed requested the steel cage stipulation after The Way attacked him backstage. Reed lost his last opportunity at the championship when Gargano beat him at NXT TakeOver during WrestleMania week.
Heydorn’s Analysis: Gargano and Reed had some really nice chemistry together during their TakeOver match. The type of heel character Gargano is playing matches up well with Reed’s monster babyface style. Adding the steel cage into that mix should only make things better.
