Karrion Kross reached the top of the mountain on WWE's black and gold brand at NXT TakeOver: 30. The Herald Of Doomsday defeated Keith Lee after a long battle to capture the NXT Championship and looked set to dominate on Wednesday nights for months to come.
Kross was forced to vacate the title only a few days later, though, as he suffered a separated shoulder during the match with The Limitless One. He has been on the sidelines ever since and Finn Balor is the current reigning and defending NXT Champion.
Kross has posted videos of him training on social media and Triple H revealed during an interview with Ryan Satin of FOX Sports that the former NXT Champion's return is imminent.
The Game said: "To quote him, 'Tick-tock.' Any second."
When exactly The Herald Of Doomsday will make his presence felt remains to be seen, but the black and gold brand's last major event of the year NXT TakeOver: WarGames is only two days away.
