Karrion Kross Challenging NXT Champion Adam Cole

Karrion Kross Challenging NXT Champion Adam Cole
It looks like Karrion Kross will be challenging NXT Champion Adam Cole soon.

Tonight's NXT main event saw Cole win a non-title match over Dexter Lumis, just days after retaining his title over The Velveteen Dream at "Takeover: In Your House" in the Backlot Brawl. Cole was confronted by Scarlett after the match as the music and video of Karrion Kross played on the big screen.

Cole celebrated with his title as the lights went out and Scarlett came out to the stage with a spotlight. She walked down to ringside and placed an hourglass in the ring as a "fall and pray!" chant came from the crowd. Scarlett then turned the hourglass upside down and walked away as the sand began to fall. Scarlett made her exit up the ramp and stopped to look back at Cole as he clutched the NXT Title. NXT went off the air with another spotlight shining on the hourglass.

Scarlett tweeted after the show and wrote, "[hourglass emoji] The end is near..."

Kross added in a follow-up tweet, "Yes."

Kross did not appear on tonight's show but they did take a look at his Takeover win over Tommaso Ciampa.
