Kross the Sky
On Sunday night the NXT brand wrote another chapter in it's tremendous legacy of upstaging the main roster and it was no different this time. In Your House use to be the go to brand name for WWF PPV, but was dropped back after ST. Valentines Massacre in February 1999. However, the WWE finally cycled back to the historical event in the year that marks 25 years since it's debut. Now it's unclear at this point if In Your House will be a yearly event for NXT, but if this year is any indication it will be welcome addition.
On Sunday we saw the much anticipated debut of Karrion Kross who collided with NXT stalwart Tommaso Ciampa. A lot has been made of Kross the exceptions that management have for him so a feud with Ciampa this early isn't a shock. With an apparent emphatic win against the former champion it is a new look for NXT but a massive first victory for the new monster in NXT. For once we could see someone who didn't get a chance to reach their potential elsewhere find it in WWE.
As for the main event which saw the Women's Division given center stage and Charlotte defend the NXT Women's championship. Flair holding the NXT title was an interesting break from the normal down on the black and yellow brand, but now it's time shift back to those who call NXT home. Also it might be time for Charlotte to head back to the main roster. The match proved exactly why the WWE's women's division is a step ahead of most every division in american wrestling as far as in ring competition. It is indeed a breath of fresh air seeing Io Shari get her shot to lead the women's division and with likely feud with Ripley now in the cards it will be more interesting the next few months in NXT.
