Keith Lee made history by dethroning Adam Cole and becoming NXT’s first Double Champion last night at The Great American Bash. During Blackzilla’s iconic celebration, Karrion Kross and Scarlett were shown sitting in the observation area with an evil grin on their face.
It’s being speculated that Kross is likely the first Superstar to challenge Lee for his title(s). Prior to his arrival in WWE, the former Impact star was reported to receive a huge push in Vince McMahon’s promotion right off the bat.
On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer reported that the main event for the upcoming NXT TakeOver event will likely be Keith Lee defending his title(s) against Karrion Kross. It will be interesting to see which title The Herald Of Doomsday will go for.
Prior to The Great American Bash, Scarlett played mind games with Cole, signaling that the end is near for The Panama City Playboy. From the looks of it, Kross is likely to challenge for the prestigious NXT Championship.
WWE’s next TakeOver event is on August 22nd. The said NXT special was originally supposed to take place in Boston during SummerSlam weekend but those plans have been scrapped due to the on-going coronavirus pandemic.
