Reed returned on the July 8 episode of NXT where he defeated Isaiah Scott.

On the September 23 episode of NXT, Reed competed in a Gauntlet Elimination match to determine the new Number One Contender to the NXT Championship, losing to Kyle O'Reilly. In 2021 during the opening night of NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver, Reed won a Gauntlet Eliminator match to become the Number One Contender to the NXT North American Championship.
