Adam Cole Confronts Karrion Kross, Big Fatal 5 Way Announced For “Takeover: In Your House”

A big Fatal 5 Way for the WWE NXT Title is now official for the upcoming “Takeover: In Your House 2021” event.

Tonight’s NXT opened with a Triple Threat to crown a new #1 contender to NXT Champion Karrion Kross. The match featured Pete Dunne, Kyle O’Reilly and Johnny Gargano, but ended with no winner as Adam Cole made his return and attacked all three with a steel chair. This was Cole’s first appearance since losing the Unsanctioned Match to O’Reilly at the “Takeover: Stand and Deliver” event.

Cole later returned to the ring and called out the NXT Champion, making it clear that he was back to regain his NXT Title. Kross came out with Scarlett and the two Superstars had words. Cole challenged Kross but NXT General Manager William Regal interrupted and said Cole’s games were not going to work, he would not weasel his way into a title match. Kross then yelled at Regal to shut up, and said the only thing that matters is what he wants.

Kross then announced that he wants Cole, Dunne, Gargano and O’Reilly at Takeover in a Fatal 5 Way. The NXT Title will be on the line. Regal made the match official.

Here is a recap of the Adam Cole – Karrion Kross segment:

Cole says exactly two years ago he became NXT Champion and whether NXT or William Regal wants to admit it or not, we’re looking at the real #1 contender. Cole has been gone for two months and has watched while everyone failed at living up to his legacy. Cole brags on taking out three of NXT’s top stars, and doing it in one night. Cole says this means he wants the NXT Title back. Which brings him to NXT Champion Karrion Kross. Cole says people think Kross is some kind of monster but Cole sees through him, and he’s nothing but a big over-rated muscle-head who doesn’t deserve to be in the same ring as Cole. Cole goes on about how it wasn’t a mistake that he held the NXT Title for over 400 days. The music hits and out comes Kross with Scarlett.

Kross steps to Cole and calls him little man. Kross understands Cole’s motives tonight but no matter what he does, it’ll never change things in the grand scheme of things. Kross says as soon as he signed with NXT, Cole no longer became special and Cole knows that. Cole says Kross isn’t Adam Cole and never will be. Cole says NXT has done everything possible to make Kross feel special… with the entrance, the fog, the girl, but what do they do to make Cole feel special? They ring the bell. Cole says on Kross’ best day he can’t lace his boots or hang with him, and anyone who watches pro wrestling knows that. Cole says he is special while Kross is just a guy who has Cole’s property.

Regal comes out and says he sees what Cole is trying to do, to weasel himself into a title match, but it’s not going to work. Kross yells at Regal to shut up. Kross doesn’t care what Regal or Cole thinks, this is about what Kross wants to do and what Kross wants at Takeover, is everyone in the match. Kyle O’Reilly, Pete Dunne, Johnny Gargano and this gas station weasel Adam Cole. Kross says there’s no way Cole will be able to get out of this ass kicking. They face off and have words as Regal thinks it over. Regal smirks and says the match is done. Cole exits the ring and rips the top off the announce table. Cole stands on top of the table and yells about running this show. Fans chant “Adam Cole!” now as Cole goes on about running the show. Cole throws a water bottle in the ring at Kross and Scarlett. He then taunts Kross, calling him a punk and talking more trash. Cole makes his exit through the barrier as Kross and Scarlett look on.
