Title matches and a debut announced for upcoming NXT shows

May 11, 2021 - by Marc Middleton

Two big matches have been announced for the May 25 WWE NXT episode on the USA Network.

It was announced during tonight’s NXT show that Finn Balor will challenge Karrion Kross for his NXT Title in two weeks.

The match was made after Balor and Kross faced off following Kross’ non-title win over Austin Theory in tonight’s opener. Balor and Kross both agreed to a title match, which will be their first time doing battle since Kross won the NXT Title from Balor at the recent “Takeover: Stand and Deliver” Night Two event during WrestleMania 37 Weekend.

WWE has also announced that Franky Monet will make her “world premiere” debut in two weeks. There is no word yet on who the former Taya Valkyrie will make her NXT in-ring debut against, but we will keep you updated.

Monet made her first NXT appearance back on April 13 and has had several interactions with various female NXT Superstars since then, working as a heel, and always appearing with her Pomeranian dog by her side.

Next Tuesday’s NXT show will feature NXT North American Champion Johnny Gargano defending against Bronson Reed. Reed became the new #1 contender by defeating Theory on the April 27 NXT show. Reed vs. Gargano will be a rematch from the NXT “Takeover: Stand and Deliver” Night Two event, which saw Gargano retain after interference from Theory.

Stay tuned for more.

    Franky Monet…….not only have they failed to make stars in recent years….but the names people have will also hinder that possibility for sure.
