After overcoming Finn Balor on the most recent episode of NXT, Karrion Kross won’t have to wait long to find out the identity of the next challenger for his NXT Title.
On the April 25th episode of the black and gold brand, Balor and Kross met in a rematch of their epic TakeOver: Stand & Deliver clash.
The match followed a similar pattern to their first bout as Balor attempted to use his guile and wrestling acumen to overcome the raw, explosive power of Kross. However, much like in their initial clash, Kross proved to be just too much for the Prince. Eventually putting him away with the Kross Jacket.
Prior to the match, NXT General Manager William Regal announced that the winner will defend the championship at TakeOver: In Your House on June 13th.
The new Number One Contender will be determined in a Triple Threat Match on next week’s show, June 1st. The match will see Johnny Gargano take on Pete Dunne and Kyle O’Reilly as he looks to regain the NXT Title he lost back in June 2019.
