WWE announced NXT North American Champion Isaiah “Swerve” Scott and Hit Row (Top Dolla, Ashante “Thee” Adonis, and B-FAB) will be hosting a Championship Cypher on Tuesday at NXT Great American Bash.
The group will be celebrating Isaiah Scott’s recent win. Scott became the NXT North American Champion after defeating Bronson Reed during last week’s episode of NXT.
WWE has also confirmed that NXT Champion Karrion Kross and Johnny Gargano will meet face-to-face this Tuesday.
Earlier this afternoon, Johnny Gargano tweeted that he wanted to meet with the NXT Champion at NXT Great American Bash.
He tweeted, “Last week Kross tried to hit me with a car.. You think I was just going to let that go? I’ll be at the Great American Bash. No tricks, no games, no smoke and mirrors. Meet me face to face. I’m going to smack the taste outta your mouth.”
Kross accepted the invitation after comparing Gargano to “bugs that crawl in and out of dog crap.”
“Mr. Gargano, it’s time to cool off that mouth of yours,” said Kross. “I would think of you more like the bugs that crawl in and out of dog crap than an actual physical threat to me. So here’s what we’re going to do; you leave your family at home, as will I, and you meet me at the Great American Bash. It’s that simple. Tick tock.”
Both NXT GM William Regal and Samoa Joe commented about the upcoming meet-up between Kross and Gargano.
Regal wrote, “Well it seems that #NXTGAB will be anything but a party… I shall see you ALL of you at #WWENXT this Tuesday. @USA_Network @WWENXT”
Joe tweeted, “I believe the young Champion is correct. It is simple and I will be at the Great American Bash maintain said simplicity.”
