Looks like he’s next. One of the more common themes in WWE today is having a dominant champion. That can be a rather cool situation, but it can also cause a few issues. The biggest problem of all is finding someone to take the title from them, as the more dominant a champion is, the harder it is to find a real challenger. NXT is going through that situation, and now they might have a new candidate.
According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, Johnny Gargano is expected to be the next challenger to Karrion Kross’ NXT Title. Gargano was attacked by Kross during this week’s NXT and, assuming there is a title match at the Great American Bash on July 6, is likely to challenge Kross. This is not considered a fact but rather an opinion, as the match has not been confirmed.
Gargano has a history of his own. Check out some of his better moments:
Opinion: I’m not sure how big of a surprise that this is but it is still should be a heck of a match. Gargano is someone who is still a big enough name in NXT that he could be a credible challenger to Kross so this should be a pretty nice showdown. I could see Kross holding the title for a long time, but with Kross seemingly on the way to the main roster sooner than later, it might be time to get the title off of him.
