WWE had been selling Karrion Kross vs. Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar in a non-title match on this week’s episode of NXT.
Nevertheless, it didn’t occur. WWE had pulled the match from the commercial on their web site the day of the present. In the course of the broadcast, WWE had Escobar do a promo about how the match will occur on his time and never when WWE NXT Basic Supervisor William Regal desires to e-book it. Thus, he was going house.
Regal then did a video phase the place he introduced the match for subsequent week’s present. If Escobar doesn’t present up and work the match then he can be stripped of the title in addition to suspended.
It seems that a medical cause prevented this match from taking place. Throughout Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer famous that he heard the match wasn’t going to occur as early as Tuesday, the day earlier than the published.
“There was a medical cause that I heard yesterday, Tuesday, that the match wasn’t going to happen. It’s not a storyline, it was a storyline out of necessity, and never a deliberate storyline.
The match was alleged to occur on tonight’s present, but it surely couldn’t. I used to be actually shocked that they introduced it for subsequent week, however they did.”
