Karrion Kross def. Tommaso Ciampa
Tommaso Ciampa has proven himself to be one of NXT’s most intense and dangerous competitors. But NXT may have been introduced to someone who is even more ruthless than The Blackheart. Karrion Kross bulldozed over Ciampa at NXT TakeOver: In Your House in a battle that shocked the NXT Universe.
Ciampa went right after Kross at the bell, clobbering his foe with a flurry of forearms, but they seemingly had no effect on the newcomer. From there, Kross went on a tear, unleashing his fury on the former NXT Champion as the match spilled to the arena floor. Kross tossed Ciampa around the ring with ease, driving him into the canvas with a series of suplexes that echoed through the arena. Ciampa fought back, unleashing his own strikes on Kross, then Willow’s Belle. But when Ciampa went for the Fairytale Ending, Kross muscled his way out and planted Ciampa to the canvas before locking on the Kross Jacket. Ciampa passed out in the hold, giving Kross his first TakeOver victory.
Karrion Kross & Scarlett made a major statement at NXT TakeOver: In Your House. Can anyone stop this devastating competitor, or is the end truly here for the black-and-gold brand?
