Karrion Kross has kept his undefeated streak in NXT intact to win the NXT Championship after defeating Finn Balor at night 2 of NXT TakeOver Stand & Deliver 2021.
Kross earlier won the NXT Championship at NXT TakeOver 30 event back in August. Kross had to relinquish the title since he suffered a separated shoulder injury during that match. He returned to NXT earlier this year and challenged Finn Balor for the title.
Finn Balor won the title for the second time after it was vacated by Kross by defeating Adam Cole. Balor held onto the title for 8 months and defended it several times at NXT and TakeOver events.
During their match at NXT TakeOver Stand & Deliver, Balor thought he has found out a way to counter Kross as he worked to damage his previously injured shoulder. Kross kept coming back into the match with his power and big moves.
Balor had Kross down after hitting Coupe’ de Grace but Kross turned a pin attempt in the Straight Jacket Submission. Balor came out of the move using the ropes but Kross unloaded at the back of his neck and hit more big moves like German suplex to soften Balor up.
The finish also came with a big blow at back of Balor’s neck for Kross to get the win and giving Finn Balor his first defeat at a NXT TakeOver event.
