For the first time in NXT’s history, the brand is hosting a two-night TakeOver special titled ‘Stand & Deliver’. The first show is taking place on April 7th on USA Network and night two is on April 8th, streaming on the Peacock service.
The first match has been made official for TakeOver: Stand & Deliver and it is Finn Balor defending the NXT Championship against Karrion Kross. Prior to tonight’s NXT going live, WWE pushed out the announcement about the match.

After Balor successfully defended the NXT Title against Adam Cole last week, he was confronted by Kross.
Kross became NXT Champion at TakeOver: XXX but had to relinquish the title due to suffering a separated shoulder. After almost eight months since relinquishing the title, Kross is back in the title picture and he and Balor will clash at Stand & Deliver.
