Karrion Kross Set for Action on NXT, Other Matches Announced

Karrion Kross will be in action next week. A few other matches were also announced for next week’s NXT Event. WWE appears to be in a slight panic mode as they are going to be holding NXT on Tuesday Nights. Due to NXT being held on Tuesday, they do not need to compete against AEW Dynamite anymore.

However, immense pressure will be on NXT to do well, now that they have no competitor.

Karrion Kross Announced To Be in Action During Next Week's NXT Show

AEW Dynamite and NXT have been doing well since both shows moved to Tuesday Night.

However, they are still quite close in TV ratings. To get better ratings, NXT will without a doubt use its best stars. NXT Cruiserweight Champion Khushida will be in action next week. He will face Santos Escobar in a 2 of 3 falls match.

Escobar and Kushida traded promos this week on NXT. The match was made after that. Kushida was able to beat Escobar for the Cruiserweight Title around 2 weeks ago. A six-man tag match was held last week between Escobar, Raul Mendoza, and Joaquin Wilde, against the team of Kushida and NXT Tag Team Champions MSK.

Escobar’s team was able to beat Kushida’s team last week. Mendoza and Wilde challenged the current NXT Tag Champions this week, but the match between them has not been made yet. Karrion Kross will face Austin Theory in a non-title match.

Karrion currently holds the NXT Title. Karrion is a very well-known wrestler and was immensely popular at Impact Wrestling. This week, Theory disrespected Scarlett backstage while she was talking to William Regal, who is the NXT General Manager.

Kross later had an in-ring segment with potential challengers which included, Pete Dunne, Kyle O’Reilly and Finn Balor. The segment ended when Theory and NXT North American Champion Johnny Gargano attacked Kross. They left him laying down in the ring.

Next week’s match between Kross and Theory will be Kross’ first match ever since he won the NXT Title at “Takeover: Stand and Deliver”. The event took place during the WrestleMania 37 week. Kross beat Finn Balor for the title that night.

To recap, the matches are: * NXT Women’s Champion Raquel Gonzalez defends against Mercedes Martinez * NXT Cruiserweight Champion Kushida defends against Santos Escobar in a 2 of 3 Falls match * NXT Champion Karrion Kross faces Austin Theory in a non-title match
