WWE presented a big episode of NXT this week, but the viewership didn’t really turn out. The NBA Playoffs were stiff competition despite Karrion Kross vs Finn Balor being promoted as main event. They have a bigger match in store for next week, and it will kick off the show.
William Regal revealed that Kyle O’Reilly, Johnny Gargano, and Pete Dunne will battle in a triple threat match next week. The winner of that match will go on to face Karrion Kross for the NXT Title at NXT TakeOver: In Your House on June 13th.
The company revealed this morning that the #1 contender triple threat match will kick off next week’s show. That will provide them with a very strong opener, but the trick is to keep fans for the full two hour show.
.@JohnnyGargano vs. @KORcombat vs. @PeteDunneYxB will KICK OFF Tuesday night’s #WWENXT and you won’t miss a second of the action!
We will have to see how everything turns out in this situation. NXT might have something up their sleeves. They don’t typically announce the opening segment of a show this far in advance.
Who is winning the triple threat match and facing Karrion Kross at NXT TakeOver: In Your House? Sound off in the comments!
