Karrion Kross Injured During NXT Championship Match at Takeover XXX

Karrion Kross is the new WWE NXT Champion after defeating Keith Lee at Takeover: XXX, but reports are stating that he was injured during the match.

Triple H confirmed Kross’ injury during a media call after Takeover. Kross had suffered a separated shoulder during his match with Lee.

The NXT Champion is set to have an MRI taken to determine the extent of his shoulder injury. Triple H declined to elaborate on what would happen if the injury would result in Kross having to take some time off.

Triple H praised both Kross and Lee on their performance during the NXT Takeover match. He said that the former champion Lee was an incredible performer and a leader in the NXT locker room who kept things together.

Triple H also noted that the new champion Kross was a tough guy, noting that he didn’t let the shoulder injury slow him down and was even able to still lift a guy as big as Lee on his shoulders.

Kross and his partner Scarlett were mostly known for their work in Impact Wrestling before they signed with WWE. This is Kross’ second Takeover appearance and his first title with WWE.
