Karrion Kross vs. Danny Burch to kick off WWE NXT

WWE has revealed which match will be opening tonight's episode of NXT.

It was announced during this morning's episode of WWE's The Bump that Karrion Kross vs. Danny Burch will kick off NXT tonight. The match was announced after Burch was one of the people Kross laid out backstage last week, sending a message to NXT Champion Keith Lee and general manager William Regal.

Kross warned Lee last month that everyone would suffer unless Lee gave him a shot at the NXT Championship. Lee told Kross to pick the time and place, but Regal told them he wouldn't be bullied into making championship matches. Regal said title shots have to be earned.

Burch posted video of a promo earlier this week where he said Kross chose the wrong person to get his point across on. Burch vowed to prove that Kross is human and can be beat.

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

  • Kushida vs. Cameron Grimes vs. an opponent who has yet to be announced (winner qualifies for the ladder match for the vacant NXT North American Championship at TakeOver XXX)
  • Bronson Reed vs. Damian Priest
  • Non-title match: NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar vs. Tyler Breeze
  • Johnny Gargano and Candice LeRae invite the NXT Universe into their home
  • Fallout from last week's Adam Cole-Pat McAfee¬†confrontation
  • Karrion Kross vs. Danny Burch (opening match)
