The intimidating entrance of Karrion Kross and his second, Scarlett (who added a splash of red to her make-up for the act’s TakeOver debut at In Your House) set the tone for his match with Tommaso Ciampa.

The Blackheart fought back after being taunted and dominated in the opening minutes. It even looked like he might turn things completely around after a running knee in the ropes allowed him to set-up for Fairy Tale Ending.
But Kross countered, and after spinning him to the mat, he locked on the Kross Jacket. It wasn’t long before the referee called for the bell.

Ciampa recovered before the scene faded to black, but the message was sent by the newcomer.
