WWE NXT Results: Leading up to the WWE NXT Championship match, the NXT champion Karrion Kross and special guest referee Samoa Joe were involved in War of Words several times during the night. Finally, when the bout started, Samoa Joe, Karrion Kross, and Johnny Gargano were in the ring at the same time.

WWE NXT Results: Even before the match could have started, Gargano ambushed Kross with a flurry of punches. It seemed like Gargano was in the driver’s seat after a charged attack, but Kross picked him up took him towards the corner, and hit him with a suplex to lay him down. 

Gargano was in serious trouble at the early stages of the match as Kross was taunting him following the painful-looking suplex. Gargano tried fighting back with a dropkick that sent Kross out of the ring followed by another dropkick and a superkick. Just like when Gargano thought Kross was out for good, the WWE NXT Champion Kross followed him and knocked him down with a vicious knee attack.

Joe, who was on the bad end of things with Karrion Kross for the whole night, told Kross to get the action back in the ring. The slight moment gave Gargano enough time to send Kross into the steel steps who was charging into him. Gargano tried attacking Kross continuously when he was down, but the WWE NXT Champion didn’t take much time to pick up Gargano and slam him hard on the announce table.

At one stage, Kross slammed Gargano’s back of the head thrice into the steel walls on the barricade as he sank to his knees. Kross then picked up the steel stairs, but Joe interfered again by denying him from doing so and got into his face.  

In the closing moments, just when Gargano was going for a superkick, Kross evaded and rocked him with a forearm in the back of the head, followed by multiple consecutive powerbombs. He then hit him with a Doomsday Sayido and yet another forearm at the back of the head to wrap up things. Kross retained his title, and Joe and Kross were again into the faces of each other. Just when Joe was about to leave the ring, Kross pulled him back and choked him out to close the night.
