Huge Title Match Set For NXT TakeOver

Huge Title Match Set For NXT TakeOver

During tonight’s episode of WWE NXT on the USA Network, the NXT Title match for August 22’s TakeOver: XXX event was made official.

As has been pretty clear for a number of weeks now, Keith Lee will be defending against Karrion Kross next Saturday.

Tonight’s show opened with Kross taking on Danny Burch and picking up a convincing win.

After that, Lee came out with a contract, and said he’d begged William Regal to approve a match, which he did, so he just needed Kross to sign.

Kross signed and Scarlett gave the contract back, but when Lee opened it they’d planted a fireball in it that burnt his face.

Lee has held the NXT Title since he beat Adam Cole on July 8 to end Cole’s record-long reign.
