Face-off segment, Ted DiBiase announcement set for WWE NXT


WWE has announced a couple of additions to the lineup for NXT's TakeOver: In Your House go-home show.

- At Sunday's TakeOver event, Karrion Kross will defend his NXT Championship against Kyle O'Reilly, Pete Dunne, Johnny Gargano, and Adam Cole in a fatal five-way match. But before that match happens, there will be a face-off segment with Kross and his challengers on this Tuesday's NXT episode.

A triple threat match between O'Reilly, Dunne, and Gargano on last week's NXT had originally been set to determine Kross' challenger for TakeOver: In Your House, but Cole interrupted the match and attacked all three wrestlers. Cole cut a promo on Kross later in the show, which led to Kross confronting Cole. Kross told NXT general manager William Regal that he wanted to face all four of O'Reilly, Dunne, Gargano, and Cole at TakeOver.

- WWE is also hyping that Ted DiBiase will make a "Priceless Announcement" on this Tuesday's NXT. The announcement comes in advance of Cameron Grimes facing LA Knight at TakeOver: In Your House.

Grimes and Knight have each been vying for DiBiase to choose them as the wrestler to carry on his Million Dollar legacy. A distraction by Grimes on last week's NXT caused Knight to lose a match against Jake Atlas. When he was interviewed backstage after the match, DiBiase said Knight dropped the ball but Grimes showed that it takes both brains and brawn.

DiBiase's Million Dollar Championship appears on the poster for TakeOver: In Your House, but WWE has yet to confirm the return of the title or that it's going to play a part in Grimes and Knight's match at TakeOver.

Here's the updated lineup for this Tuesday's NXT:

  • Face-off with NXT Champion Karrion Kross, Kyle O'Reilly, Pete Dunne, Johnny Gargano, and Adam Cole
  • Ember Moon vs. Dakota Kai
  • Oney Lorcan vs. Austin Theory
  • Isaiah "Swerve" Scott vs. Killian Dain
  • Grammy-nominated pop-rock and nu-metal artist Poppy returns to NXT
  • Ted DiBiase makes a "Priceless Announcement"
