NXT Champion Finn Balor and his next challenger Karrion Kross were briefly partners as they teamed up in the main event of last night's NXT.
Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch retained their NXT Tag Team titles by defeating Balor & Kross on last night's show. During the match, Balor gave Lorcan a shotgun dropkick on the outside that knocked him into Scarlett. Kross then attacked Balor and threw him into the ring, with Lorcan connecting with an uppercut on Balor and pinning him to get the win.
Kross destroyed Lorcan with two Doomsday Saito suplexes after the match and then beat down Balor. Kross put Balor in the Kross Jacket before laying him out with an elbow strike. Scarlett told Balor that everything happens for a reason and he can't escape fate.
It was confirmed last night that Balor will defend his NXT Championship against Kross at TakeOver: Stand & Deliver next month. A confrontation between Balor and Kross opened last night's show until they were interrupted by Lorcan and Burch.
Burch suffered a shoulder injury in last night's main event and didn't return to the match.
Though not officially announced, Adam Cole vs. Kyle O'Reilly, NXT Women's Champion Io Shirai vs. Raquel Gonzalez, NXT United Kingdom Champion WALTER vs. Tommaso Ciampa, and NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar vs. NXT Cruiserweight Champion Jordan Devlin also look to be planned for TakeOver: Stand & Deliver following last night's NXT. TakeOver: Stand & Deliver is a two night-event that's taking place on Wednesday, April 7 and Thursday, April 8.
