Time’s up for Santos Escobar. Will he survive doomsday?
The NXT Cruiserweight Champion will face Karrion Kross in a No Disqualification Non-Title Match this Wednesday night on NXT.
The strife that initially stemmed from Escobar maligning Kross’ snakebitten NXT Championship reign has grown more hostile each week as Kross and Scarlett stalk their next target.
The two were set to meet last week until Escobar gave himself the night off, much to the chagrin of NXT General Manager William Regal. But Escobar may have only dug himself a deeper hole, as Regal announced the No Disqualification stipulation and a stern ultimatum for the rescheduled bout: If Escobar no-shows again, he’ll be stripped of the NXT Cruiserweight Title and suspended.
Time and time again, Escobar’s cunning — and Legado del Fantasma — have proven to be too much for opponents to overcome. While Escobar isn’t in jeopardy of losing his title if he shows, is he doomed to an even worse fate at Kross’ hands?
