During the August 26th edition of WWE NXT on the USA Network, Kross opened the show stating, “I told you.”
Kross continued on, “Again, and again. That I would become the NXT Champion. And I warned you, that everyone would suffer. At TakeOver 30, I kept good on my word, when I RIPPED the title off Keith Lee’s carcass. Like FLESH from BONE! But one should know, when you go to war, you should expect casualties on all sides. My shoulder, separated. I’m in pain, but you know what, I love it. It brings me life. But I’m a realist, and I understand the reality of the situation. There’s no way they’re going to let me defend the championship in this condition, so you know what…” Scarlett hands Karrion Kross the belt. “On the path, there are obstacles, but for me, the obstacles are the path.” Kross sets down the championship belt on the canvas. “Let this be a warning,” Kross continues, “This changes absolutely nothing. Doomsday is still coming. In the end, everybody pays the toll. And God help the obstacles that will be in my path, tick tock.”
“On the path there are obstacles, but for me, the obstacles are the path.”

With that, Scarlett turned the hour glass over that sat next to the NXT Championship belt.
