Karrion Kross defeated Keith Lee to become NXT Champion. That is a title he would still have in his possession if a separated shoulder didn’t take him out of action. Now he is watching from the sidelines, but he’s paying close attention.
Finn Balor will defend the NXT Title against Kyle O’Reilly at NXT TakeOver: 31. That match came together as NXT had to reshuffle their roster due to a COVID-19 outbreak, but the opportunity was totally earned by O’Reilly.
It doesn’t seem to matter which man walks out of TakeOver as the champion. Karrion Kross will be paying close attention to what happens. He tweeted out an ominous message saying: “We will be watching.” We can only imagine that he is itching to get back to action.
Scarlett replied to Kross’ tweet with a devilish emoji to show that she will indeed be watching as well.
We’ll have to see how long Karrion Kross is out of the ring. When he returns it seems that he will be gunning for the top spot in NXT once again.
