Karrion Kross NXT TakeOver XXX

On Saturday night, Karrion Kross captured the NXT Championship from Keith Lee at NXT TakeOver: XXX in one of the most physical matches the brand had seen in some time. It was Kross’ enshrining moment as the next male face of NXT, proving “Doomsday” was here. However, after the show, Triple H stated in his post-show conference call that Kross suffered a separated shoulder during the match.

Following the show, WWE issued the following statement regarding the NXT champion’s injury:

“Karrion Kross captured the NXT Championship from Keith Lee at TakeOver XXX, and he did it after sustaining a shoulder injury, WWE.com has learned.

WWE medical staff confirmed that Kross sustained a separated acromioclavicular joint during his battle with The Limitless One. Despite the injury, a determined Kross took down the champion, showing incredible toughness by lifting Lee up for a devastating Doomsday Saito off the middle rope to claim the NXT Championship.

Kross will have an MRI on Monday to determine the full extent of the injury.

WWE also released this WWE Network exclusive video, showing Kross being worked on in the back following his match.

With an MRI coming Monday, there is a good chance we do not learn the severity of Kross’s injury until NXT on Wednesday. Hopefully, Kross will not have to miss time and can hold onto his newly won NXT Championship.
