WWE NXT highlights (May 25, 2021): The Million Dollar Man, Kross vs. Balor, more!

Ted DiBiase is a legend and while I was underwhelmed with his promo on NXT TV this week, you have to highlight The Million Dollar Man when he comes around. It looks like he’s looking for a protege, or someone to pass his legacy down to, and it doesn’t look like it will be Cameron Grimes.

LA Knight, perhaps?

Elsewhere, the Karrion Kross vs. Finn Balor NXT title rematch may not have been as good as the first go round but it was still a really fun main event that further established Kross as the dominant new champion on the men’s side.

Here’s are the highlights from NXT this week:

  • Raquel Gonzalez & Dakota Kai vs. Ember Moon & Shotzi Blackheart
  • Bobby Fish vs. Pete Dunne w/Oney Lorcan
  • Mercedes Martinez vs. Zayda Ramier
  • Franky Monet makes her in-ring debut
  • Hit Row eye championship gold
  • Tommaso Ciampa & Timothy Thatcher, Grizzled Young Veterans trade barbs
  • Million Dollar Face-off between Ted DiBiase and Cameron Grimes
  • Indi Hartwell finds Dexter Lumis’ grief-stricken art
  • MSK has Bronson Reed’s back against Legado Del Fantasma
  • Failure is not an option for Imperium
  • Karrion Kross w/Scarlett vs. Finn Balor — NXT title match
  • Franky Monet sent a message to the locker room
  • Karrion Kross has everybody’s ticket
