Karrion Kross & Scarlett to Open Tonight's NXT; Three More Matches Announced

-- WWE announced that Karrion Kross - the new NXT champion - will kickoff tonight's post-TakeOver episode of NXT. Kross won the title last weekend, defeating Keith Lee in the main event but suffered a shoulder injury that he believes won't sideline him for too long.

Doomsday is here.

Despite sustaining a shoulder injury during his match against Keith Lee at NXT TakeOver: XXX, Karrion Kross powered through a grueling bout to win the NXT Championship.

After a medical evaluation Monday, Kross will kick off Wednesday night's WWE NXT on USA Network. What do the new NXT Champion and Scarlett have in store for NXT, given his injury? One thing is certain, the time has come for the NXT Universe to fall and pray.

-- Also announced for tonight's NXT are three matches:

  • NXT Cruiserweight champion Santos Escobar vs. Isaiah "Swerve" Scott

  • NXT Tag Team champions Imperium vs. Breezango
  • Io Shirai & Rhea Ripley vs. Dakota Kai & Reina Gonzalez
