Karrion Kross now can say that he had a match featured on the main card of an NXT TakeOver special.
As seen at Sunday’s (June 7, 2020) WWE NXT TakeOver: In Your House in Winter Park, Florida, the former Impact Wrestling star did so when he took on Tommaso Ciampa that saw Kross go over the former NXT Champion.
It was a short match that saw Kross be booked strong with Ciampa not getting a ton of offense in. The finish saw Kross lock in the Kross Jacket submission, which is a rear-naked choke.
When Kross first signed with the company, it was reported that he was being brought in as a top star and WWE is living up to that expectation.
Back in April, this feud started when Kross attacked Ciampa from behind as Ciampa was doing a backstage promo. WWE paired Kross up with his real-life girlfriend, Scarlett. Fast forward to the May 20th episode of NXT, WWE had Ciampa cut a promo about Kross to make this match official.
