Tensions between NXT Champion Karrion Kross and Samoa Joe have been building ever since Joe came back to NXT to be William Regal's enforcer. Kross has attacked and put Joe to sleep and Joe is yet to get revenge. Kross would then attack Regal as well. Joe gets a chance at revenge at Takeover when he faces Kross with the NXT Championship on the line! Joe resigned as a member of NXT management on NXT (7/27). Regal would then reinstate him as an active competitor and make the championship match official for Takeover.
Here is the updated card:
NXT UK Championship Match
Ilja Dragunov vs. WALTER (champ)
NXT Championship Match
Samoa Joe vs. Karrion Kross (champ)
NXT Takeover 36 is Sunday, August 22nd exclusively on Peacock and WWE Network.
