Karrion Kross and Scarlett

Following his latest victory at NXT TakeOver: In Your House, Karrion Kross was in fighting mood.

At the event, Karrion Kross once again retained his NXT Championship seeing off Adam Cole, Kyle O’Reilly, Pete Dunne and Johnny Gargano.

After the show, a camera caught up with Kross and his manager Scarlett backstage. Still fired up from his latest victory, Kross was in fighting mood addressing NXT’s fans and the rest of the roster.

“You know what looks good? This, on me,” [Pointing at NXT Title] “You know what doesn’t look good? People talking trash for three weeks and not being able to back it up. NXT ‘Takeover: In Your House’ – my house.

“You want to say this company’s behind me? You damn right they are because I don’t give them a choice. Because no matter where the time is told, in the end, everybody pays the toll, and tonight I just punched a hole through the Mount Rushmore of NXT.”

After the match IMPACT star Chris Bey took to Twitter to praise the reigning champion, while also defending Kross against those who doubt him.

Bey called Kross a “star” before describing him as “larger than life.”

TakeOver: In Your House went off the air with a bombshell from NXT General Manager William Regal.

As Regal walked outside of the Capitol Wrestling Center, interviewer McKenzie Mitchell asked Regal for his thoughts on the show. Regal cryptically responded that it might be “time for a change.”

“It’s been seven years since I became the GM of NXT and I’ve never seen so much bedlam. It’s complete madness. I think it’s time for a change.”

In the wake of these comments it has been revealed that Regal will address the future of NXT on the June 15th episode of the black and gold brand.

It has also been suggested that Samoa Joe could be about to return to NXT. Potentially as Regal’s replacement or enforcer.
