To open last night's episode of NXT, Pete Dunne, Kyle O'Reilly and Damian Priest staked their claims for an NXT Title shot against Finn Balor. The Prince later announced he would defend the championship at New Year's Evil on January 6, but his opponent will be decided by William Regal.
As soon as Balor finished his sentence, Karrion Kross's music played over the titantron and Scarlett entered the Capitol Wrestling Center, stating her man's own claim for a title match. Before the segment came to an end, though, Priest goaded Scarlett and asked if she always takes care of her partner's business while he sits in the car.
This comment obviously angered The Herald Of Doomsday as he returned to NXT later in the show and attacked The Archer Of Infamy. He then tossed Priest around the Capitol Wrestling Center and Powerbomed him on the stage to end the confrontation.
Kross had been out of action since he vacated the NXT Championship due to injury in August. His return was expected following a teaser during NXT TakeOver: WarGames.
