After what has been a grudge getting out of hand, Karrion Kross will meet Johnny Gargano face-to-face at NXT Great American Bash.
WWE made the official announcement via its website on Saturday as Kross and Gargano have literally been at one another’s throats over the course of the past few weeks and that was specifically displayed when the NXT Champion choked Gargano out on Tuesday outside of the Capitol Wrestling Center. You can read the full announcement below:
NXT Champion Karrion Kross and Johnny Gargano will meet face-to-face this Tuesday at NXT Great American Bash, live on USA Network at 8/7 C.
Gargano was enraged after Kross responded to his ambush attacks last Tuesday by trying to run him over. He called out Kross on Twitter Saturday ahead of NXT Great American Bash.
Last week Kross tried to hit me with a car.. You think I was just going to let that go?
I'll be at the Great American Bash. No tricks, no games, no smoke and mirrors.
Meet me face to face. I'm going to smack the taste outta your mouth.

Kross replied, equating Gargano to “bugs that crawl in and out of dog crap” before accepting Gargano’s invitation, but with one caveat: It’s just him and Gargano.

Samoa Joe caught the interaction and confirmed he would be at the Great American Bash to make sure things don’t get out of hand from this meeting.
I believe the young Champion is correct. It is “simple”, and I will be at the Great American Bash maintain said “simplicity”. https://t.co/WrckPlIYu1
