Roderick Strong Wins In Return Match, Karrion Kross Chokes Out Johnny Gargano

Roderick Strong Wins In Return Match

Roderick Strong lived up to his last name as he returned back to the squared circle this week on NXT. The Diamond Mine was looking fine as Strong came out flanked by Malcolm Bivens, Tyler Rust and Hideki Matsui while he took on Asher Hale in singles action.

Strong made relatively quick work of Hale as he hit a high-jumping knee and secured a key lock for the the submission win. After the bell, Bivens got on the mic to say it’s just the beginning for the newly formed faction.

Karrion Kross Chokes Out Johnny Gargano

Karrion Kross and Johnny Gargano continued their blooming feud on Tusday night. Kross came out to address his aggression against Gargano and it was Johnny who orchestrated a surprise attack on the NXT Champion. Kross was ambushed from behind by Austin Theory, but he soon regained order of his domain.

He was on the verge of destroying Gargano with some steel stairs before Samoa Joe and security stopped him. Gargano took a cheap shot by kicking Kross in the face before he and Theory found a way to safely leave the Capitol Wrestling Center for the evening.

Later in the show, Gargano and Theory returned to the arena and tried to attack Kross again, but the champion choked his rival out.
