Ciampa vs. Kross official for NXT TakeOver: In Your House

Karrion Kross' first TakeOver match is now official.

It will be Tommaso Ciampa vs. Kross at NXT TakeOver: In Your House. That was confirmed when Ciampa confronted Kross on NXT tonight.

Kross and Scarlett kicked off tonight's NXT episode. Kross had his second match for the brand, quickly destroying enhancement wrestler Liam Gray and submitting him with the Kross Jacket. Ciampa then came down and officially introduced himself to Kross. Ciampa told Kross that NXT is his home, but he said Kross already knew that. Ciampa said that's why Kross made a point by attacking him.

Ciampa said Kross is special and stands out even in a locker room full of the best professional wrestlers in the world. But Ciampa said he's special too, and that's why he had to come out, look Kross in the eyes, and let him know it will be Ciampa vs. Kross at TakeOver. Ciampa welcomed Kross to the main event.

Tonight was the first time Ciampa has appeared on NXT since being attacked by Kross at the end of the April 15 episode of the show.

Kross made his NXT in-ring debut two weeks ago by defeating Leon Ruff.

NXT TakeOver: In Your House is taking place on Sunday, June 7. Ciampa vs. Kross is the first match confirmed for the show.
