NXT championship match booked for next week, with a special guest referee

New, 12 comments

WWE promoted a face-to-face confrontation between current NXT Champion Karrion Kross and the guy who has been the clear next contender for his title, Johnny Gargano, for tonight’s (Tues., July 6, 2021) The Great American Bash show at the Capitol Wrestling Center. There was really only one thing this was ever going to be leading to.

The booking of a title match.

Sure enough:

Kross will defend his title against Gargano on NXT TV next week. The kicker here is that Samoa Joe will act as the special guest referee, as announced by General Manager William Regal. This is interesting if only because Joe vs. Kross was the first match they teased for the special enforcer upon his return to the company.

And if recent rumors and reports are to be believed, Kross may be headed for the main roster sooner rather than later. If they want to do a Kross vs. Joe match, now is the time.

See you next week.
