William Regal has announced that the scheduled match between Karrion Kross and Santos Escobar will have a No DQ stipulation.
The match was scheduled for last week but there was a storyline explanation from Escobar stating that he was going to wrestle Kross on his own time. It was later announced by Regal that he would have to wrestle Kross next week or risk getting indefinitely suspended and he would be stripped of the Cruiserweight Championship.
Dave Meltzer reported that the reason why the Escobar vs. Kross match did not happen this past Wednesday because of a medical issue.
In consideration of the difference in each competitors “interest” in their match I’ve decided to raise the stakes. @WWEKarrionKross vs @EscobarWWE will now be a #NoDQMatch & if our Cruiserweight Champion does not participate, he will be stripped of his title & suspended. #WWENXT
