NXT Championship Match Set For NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver

The main event has been set!

Finn Bálor will put his NXT Championship on the line against the undefeated Karrion Kross at NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver.

It was confirmed in the opening segment of Wednesday night's NXT that Bálor and Kross would finally meet and fight for the title at the first-ever two-night NXT TakeOver in just three weeks' time. 

Kross, who has not lost since making his NXT debut last year, was forced to vacate the NXT Championship in August after winning the title from Keith Lee. Since returning in January, he has dismantled the likes of Damien Priest and Santos Escobar. 

Bálor won the vacant title and has since seen off the likes of Kyle O'Reilly, Pete Dunne and Adam Cole in his six-month reign, but had his first face-off with former champion Kross last week. 

The two will now clash for The Prince's championship - the title Kross never lost - in the main event of Stand & Deliver, which will air across Wednesday 7 and Thursday 8 April.
