Kross won the NXT Championship last yeat. However, his victory over Keith Lee was soured by the injury he suffered during the match. He had to relinquish the title shortly after winning it.
One man’s misfortune is another’s opportunity. Balor, who was having a solid run, capped his return by winning the vacant title, becoming a 2-time NXT Champion in the process.
Kross now wants back what he never lost. Balor, who probably understands Kross more than any other, is not sympathetic and is looking to hold on to the title for as long as possible.
Apart from the NXT and NXT Women’s Championship match, a title unification match has been annpounced between NXT Cruiserwight Champions, Jordan Devlin and Santos Escobar.
