Karrion Kross won the NXT Championship after defeating Keith Lee at NXT TakeOver: XXX. However, he suffered a separated shoulder during the match and was forced to relinquish the title. He had been undergoing physical rehabilitation since then and it seems his return could be soon.
Kross posted a few videos of his workout in the past few months. During the media call to promote NXT TakeOver: WarGames, Triple H was asked regarding Kross’ return status. He answered by Kross’ signature catchphrase. He said: “To quote him, tick tock. Any second.”
NXT TakeOver: WarGames will be taking place on this Sunday. With Kross likely to come back soon, a return at the TakeOver event is not out of the question.
We will have to see what WWE has planned for him upon his return.
