Karrion Kross has reclaimed what he never lost.
Karrion Kross regained the NXT Championship at NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver, defeating Finn Balor in the co-main event.
Kross was able to survive the coup de grace, kicking out by locking Balor in a rear naked choke, rendering Balor limp. Kross would follow up with strikes to the back of the head, a side suplex, and a forearm shot to the back of the head of Balor as he stood prone in the middle of the ring.
This marks Kross's second reign with the NXT Championship.
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.
