As we march towards NXT TakeOver: In Your House on Sunday 13th June, the NXT Championship match picture is getting clearer with the champion set for the match and a number one contender to be confirmed next week.
In the main event of this week’s episode, NXT Champion Karrion Cross faced off with former champ Finn Balor in a rematch from TakeOver: Stand & Deliver last month.
After one of the best matches in the history of the weekly show, Kross retained his championship via TKO when the Irishman passed out in a rear naked choke.
That means Kross will move on to In Your House to defend his belt and his NXT undefeated streak against a challenger that we found out will be determined by a triple threat match next week.
NXT General Manager announced that Kyle O’Reilly, Finn Balor and Johnny Gargano will compete for the chance to square off with the champion at TakeOver.
Any of the three sound like intriguing possibilities, with Gargano being the only one of the three to previously hold the championship.
