Night Two of NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver has its main event.
Last week, it was announced that Finn Balor would defend the NXT Championship against Karrion Kross at NXT TakeOver. The match was set up when, after Balor retained his title versus Adam Cole on March 10, Kross confronted the champ with Balor commenting, "What took you so long?"
Kross won the NXT Championship at NXT TakeOver XXX, but suffered a shoulder injury in the bout and was forced to relinquish the title. Balor won the vacant title at NXT Super Tuesday II.
Now he has the chance to reclaim what he never lost.

Finn Bálor has been virtually untouchable since his return to NXT, but he’s about to face his toughest test yet as NXT Champion.
The Prince will put his title on the line against the undefeated Karrion Kross, accompanied by Scarlett, in the main event of Night 2 of NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver on Thursday, April 8.
Bálor has stood tall in the face of all challengers during his six-month reign atop the black-and-gold brand, defeating the likes of Adam Cole, Pete Dunne and Kyle O’Reilly.
However, The Prince’s opportunity to become champion emerged after Kross was forced to vacate the title in August due to injury. The doomsday deviant has been on an absolute rampage since returning, dismantling Damian Priest, Santos Escobar and more.
The two finally came face to face following Bálor’s title defense against Cole, with Kross locking eyes on The Prince and the championship he never lost.
Bálor is perhaps better than he’s ever been, while Kross may be the most unstoppable force in NXT history. When they finally meet at NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver, something has to give!
