NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar vs. Karion Cross was announced in the next Wednesday’s NXT episode on USA Network. This will be a non-title match.
Cross and Escobar have been feuding on NXT TV for several weeks after Escobar insulted Cross during an in-ring promotion. Tonight’s show featured a behind-the-scenes segment where Scarlett spoke to NXT general manager William Regal to play next week’s match. Escobar later sent Raul Mendoza and Joaquin Wild to look for a cross to make up for losing to MSK in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic semifinals. The camera later found Mendoza and Wild behind the scenes, with Cross and Scarlet right there. Cross spoke to Escobar by speaking into the camera and said he would do exactly what he did to Wild and Mendoza next week.
Cross and Escobar previously fought in Mexico’s AAA promotion. At the Verano de Escandaro (Summer Scandal) event on June 4, 2017, Escobar and Texano escaped from the cage and hit the floor at the same time, causing Cross, Escobar and El Texano Jr. to draw in a steel cage match. It was.
At the time of this writing, Escobar vs. Cross is the only match announced at next week’s NXT show. The episode will also feature a fallout from Sunday’s “Takeover: Vengeance Day” event.
