You need to make it special. This week’s edition of NXT is the Great American Bash special and that means viewers are in for a big night. NXT knows how to fill out major cards, but there is not room on them for everything. Sometimes you need to save something for later though and that is what we are going to be seeing next week as there is going to be a huge main event.

During this week’s edition of NXT, Johnny Gargano and NXT Champion Karrion Kross had a face to face meeting in the ring. General Manager William Regal announced that the two would meet in a title match the following week, with Samoa Joe as the guest enforcer. The two have been feuding in recent weeks, including Kross defeating Gargano and three other challengers in a title defense at Takeover: In Your House 2021.

It should be a big one. Check out how we got to the title match:

Chaos unfolds between Kross, Finn Bálor, Kyle O’Reilly, Pete Dunne and more: WWE NXT, May 4, 2021

Karrion Kross tries to run Johnny Gargano over: WWE NXT, June 29, 2021

Samoa Joe named special guest referee for NXT Title clash: NXT Great American Bash, July 6, 2021

Opinion: This could be a heck of a fight and it is made all the more interesting when you factor in the rumors of Kross being promoted to the main roster. That opens the door to a possible title change and it isn’t like the idea of Gargano being the NXT Champion is completely insane. I’m looking forward to the title match and that is always a nice feeling to have.

What do you expect from the title match? Where do both go from here? Let us know in the comments below.
