Later in the show, Cole walked out to the ring and attempted to get under Kross’ skin in order to get what he really wanted; a title shot. General Manager William Regal was having none of it but Kross informed him that he wanted to face Cole, O’Reilly, Gargano and Dunne at once.

It will be interesting to see who comes out on top here. Rumors have long persisted of a main roster run in the line for Kross. Taking on multiple opponents allows for him to drop the title without having his credibilty hurt. On the other hand, beating four other men will solidify him as one of the most dominant champion seen on the brand.
Regardless, it will be interesting to see what the WWE have in store for the future. Every single person involved in this match is worthy of carrying the title. There is really no wrong decision to make here.
