Karrion Kross Vacates NXT Championship Due To Shoulder Injury

Karrion Kross is no longer the NXT Champion.

Just days after he defeated Keith Lee at NXT TakeOver XXX to become the new champion, Kross appeared on NXT and declared that he is not in any condition to defend the title due to his separated shoulder. He then left the title in the center of the ring and WWE would confirm the title is now vacant.
