WWE NXT video highlights: Kross relinquishes NXT Championship

Just days after winning the title, Karrion Kross announced last night that he's relinquished the NXT Championship due to injury.

Kross opened last night's NXT after winning the NXT Championship from Keith Lee in the main event of TakeOver XXX. Kross said he was in searing pain due to his separated shoulder, but he loves it and it brings him life. However, Kross is a realist and knows they won't let him defend the title in this condition. Kross closed his promo by issuing a warning. He said this changes absolutely nothing -- doomsday is still coming to NXT.

Kross and Scarlett then left the title belt in the ring with an hourglass.

Later in the night, William Regal announced that a four-way 60-minute Iron Man match on next Tuesday's NXT will decide the new NXT Champion. Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa, Finn Balor, and Adam Cole will be the wrestlers vying for the title.

Ciampa returned to NXT television last night and quickly defeated Jake Atlas. He continued to destroy Atlas after the match.

The NXT Tag Team and Cruiserweight titles were both on the line last night. Plus, the main event saw NXT Women's Champion Io Shirai team with Rhea Ripley against Dakota Kai & Raquel Gonzalez.
