It looks like one of the fastest rising stars in NXT is next in line for Adam Cole’s NXT Championship.
Dave Meltzer first reported several weeks ago that Karrion Kross was going to be fast-tracked upon his debut in NXT and that is exactly what is happening. Kross destroyed Tommaso Ciampa at NXT TakeOver: In Your House and on this week’s NXT TV, it was made clear that Kross vs. Cole is on the horizon.
Cole defeated Dexter Lumis this week but Cole’s celebration was short because Scarlett made her way to ringside to place an hourglass inside of the ring to indicate that Cole’s time is running short.
Presumably, this means that we’ll be seeing Kross vs. Cole at the next TakeOver show, currently scheduled for SummerSlam weekend. For those of you that missed it, check out the clip below to see what happened at the end of this week’s NXT on USA.
