The rivalry between Gargano and Kross heated up last Tuesday when Gargano jumped Kross and thought he had taken him out of the picture. He didn't get the job done though and Kross tried to run him over with a car. Fortunately, Gargano was saved by Joe.

Kross was ready to finish things with Gargano at NXT Great American Bash, but Joe stepped in.

Here is the current lineup for the July 13 episode of NXT.
