NXT Takeover: XXX – Karrion Kross Wins the NXT Championship

Keith Lee has only held the NXT Championship for a few weeks after dethroning the former Champion Adam Cole back at NXT’s version of The Great American Bash.

Lee has recently been targeted by Karrion Kross and his wife Scarlett Bordeaux, who have only recently made their debuts in NXT after originally making names for themselves in Impact Wrestling.

Kross was given quite the push towards the NXT Championship and somehow he was able to find a way past Keith Lee to become the new Champion just over four months after making his NXT debut.

Kross and Lee main evented Takeover XXX in a show-stealing match where Lee looked as though he was going to retain for much of the bout.

Lee was able to withstand a lot of punishment from Kross, including being locked in his submission but refused to tap out.

It wasn’t until Lee was hit with The Doomsday from the second rope that the end of the match finally came.

Ahead of the show, there were rumors that WWE had accidentally spoiled the result of the NXT Championship match as images of Kross with the title were released online, but many believed that it was too soon for the former TNA star to become NXT’s main Champion.
