In the middle of a year of ostentation, The NXT Cruiserweight Championship (interim) seems to be the perennial property of Santos Escobar. The former Son of the Phantom has demonstrated his superiority through five defenses of this scepter, with the support of Joaquin Wilde and Raul Mendoza, and today, he looks like the most solid monarch of the WWE golden brand, ahead even by Io Shirai and Finn Bálor.
But this week he had the biggest challenge before him since competing for the McMahon Empire. Perhaps without knowing the precedents of Karrion kross Within his own work scenario, Escobar dared to insult the former NXT Champion weeks ago, and in a somewhat strange concretion, It was announced that these former AAA rivals would be measured in the weekly televised episode that took place yesterday.

The General Manager showed viewers a video in which Escobar refused to face Kross, blurting out that he would do so on his own terms. But Regal then advised that Escobar will have to show his face next Wednesday, or else, he will be suspended indefinitely and will stop carrying the NXT Cruiserweight Championship, despite the fact that the clash against Kross is not of a starting character.
Minutes later, Kross and Scarlett starred in a cartoon where they warned that Escobar’s fate was already written, and that there was nothing the Mexican could do about it.
