NXT: Karrion Kross vs Damian Priest Match Set For New Year's Evil

Karrion Kross surprised everyone last week by ambushing Damian Priest after Priest tried to send a message through Scarlett, but his first match back in the ring was tonight, and he looked impressive between the ropes. After his victory he decided to share a message of his own, and he announced that he would be facing Damian Priest at New Year's Evil, accepting his challenge and looking to make a point that he is back for that Championship and will go through anyone he needs to to make it happen.

Kross told Priest to protect his chin, and Scarlett couldn't have been more thrilled with the announcement. Before he left Kross dished out a little "Tick Tock" and the duo walked out of the ring.

"Hey, Priest! TIME'S UP."

This match looks to be a straight forward affair without any stipulations, though neither competitor needs a gimmick to make this match a must-watch. This match joins the recently announced Finn Balor vs Kyle O'Reilly match.
