On this week’s episode of NXT, as Triple H was standing in the ring with Johnny Gargano and Tomasso Ciampa, a promo aired on the empty arena’s big screen, giving fans their first look at former Impact Wrestling star Killer Kross.
Whether he’ll be called Killer Kross or not in NXT was not determined, but his promo left the impression he’ll be getting a major push right out of the gate and inserted into a storyline with one of Gargano or Ciampa as their match in two weeks will be the match to end it all.
The final segment of Wednesday’s NXT show saw Triple H instructing both Gargano and Ciampa they are not to lay a hand on one another until their match in two weeks. At that time, Triple H will find an empty building for the two competitors to have one last battle to end their feud.
The only job of the referee in that match will be to declare the ending of the match.
When Gargano and Ciampa finished taking shots at each other, the screen went crazy and a promo played with what we believe is the voice of Kross’ real-life girlfriend Scarlett Bordeaux, (also an NXT talent). The words spoken were apparently in Romanian: “Only the man will win and if you lose, the weaker man is done. Now you’ll all see pain … there’s a very dangerous man coming. The clock ticks at midnight and the end is near.”
