At NXT Takeover: Stand & Deliver Night Two, Finn Balor had his hardest test in a while when he faced Karrion Kross. Despite his best efforts to pull Kross into deep waters, he would fall victim to a running elbow to the back of the head, ending his second reign as NXT Champion. Kross didn’t get injured this time, like when he won his first NXT Championship from Keith Lee, so tonight when he kicked off NXT? We won’t be seeing him lay the belt down, but lift it proudly and address the fans as a true champion.
Karrion Kross Is In Command Of NXT, And Calls For Everyone To Step Up
After his typically grand entrance, Kross would speak. He told us that time always comes full circle, and got a small “You Deserve It!” chant. Now he stands back in his ring with his title again, as NXT Champion. Balor is without a doubt one of the greatest that’s ever stepped into the ring, winning belts everywhere he’s been. When Balor was champion, he was on a tear, but he doubted the ability of Kross to control his emotions.
Time has corrected itself, and now Kross is in command of NXT until he chooses to give up command. When you’re at the top, sometimes the only way to go is down, but Kross is not going to follow that path. He’s on top of a very hungry roster, but he’s the hungriest of all. You come out and challenge him, and prove that you can take it.
Kross doesn’t care how many titles you’ve won elsewhere, how much money you’re making, or anything like that. No one can out-train him, and it will not be easy to take that title from him this time. Who do you see stepping up to Karrion Kross first? Let us know what you think in the comment section down below.
