Face-to-face segment set for NXT Great American Bash

The NXT Champion and his likely next challenger will go face-to-face at the NXT Great American Bash.

WWE announced today that NXT Champion Karrion Kross and Johnny Gargano will take part in a face-to-face segment at NXT Great American Bash on Tuesday. NXT authority figure Samoa Joe will also be there to make sure things don't get out of hand.

Kross told Gargano to leave his family at home for the face-to-face segment. Kross said he'll leave Scarlett at home as well.

Kross and Gargano brawled throughout this past Tuesday's NXT episode. As they fought in the parking lot, Kross put Gargano in the Kross Jacket and then tried to run him over with his car. Joe moved Gargano out of the way before Kross could hit him. Joe told Gargano that perhaps Gargano pushed Kross a little too far.

WWE has also announced that Hit Row will host a "Championship Cypher" at the Great American Bash. The segment will be a freestyle rap from Hit Row. It's in celebration of Hit Row's Isaiah "Swerve" Scott defeating Bronson Reed on this past Tuesday's NXT to win the North American Championship.

This is the second straight year that WWE has presented a special Great American Bash edition of NXT. Here's the updated card for the show:

  • Adam Cole vs. Kyle O'Reilly
  • NXT Tag Team Champions MSK defend¬†against Tommaso Ciampa & Timothy Thatcher
  • NXT Women's Tag Team Champions Candice LeRae & Indi Hartwell defend against Io Shirai & Zoey Stark
  • Million Dollar Champion LA Knight defends against Cameron Grimes (if Grimes loses, he has to become Knight's butler)
  • NXT Champion Karrion Kross and Johnny Gargano will go face-to-face
  • Hit Row will host a Championship Cypher
