Kross vs Ciampa announced for NXT Takeover: In Your House


The first match for the upcoming NXT Takeover: In Your House was announced last night on NXT on USA Network and will pit newcomer Karrion Kross against former NXT champion Tommaso Ciampa.

Ciampa returned to NXT last night and confronted Kross following the backstage attack from a few weeks ago. He reminded Kross that NXT is his home and while Kross is a special talent, he’s just as special and then challenged him at Takeover.

Kross and his girlfriend Scarlett kicked off NXT in a squash match against an enhancement talent by the name of Liam Gray.

Takeover: In Your House takes place from Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida on Sunday, June 7 and will be live exclusively on the WWE Network. This is the first Takeover event since the Portland one in February.
