Consider it provoked.
Carrion Cross finally went too far and Samoa Joe made a deal with Mr. Regal to return to the ring to challenge the NXT champion at NXT TakeOver 36.
Initially, Mr. Regal brought Samoa Joe into the NXT management team to clean up the mess following the chaotic takeover of NXT: In Your House. Daring Cross continued to rage on the black and gold brand, and Mr. Regal’s attack proved to be the final straw.
Can Samoa Joe meet Cross and end his destructive reign? Or will Cross leave another adorned superstar on his way?
Check out the clash between the two warriors for the NXT title at NXT TakeOver 36 at 8 ET / 5 PT on Sunday 22 August, streaming exclusively on Peacock in the US and WWE everywhere.
