WWE NXT concluded with a big title match this week. Karrion Kross successfully defended the NXT Title against Johnny Gargano with Samoa Joe as special guest referee. The night didn’t end without things getting physical for the referee.

Samoa Joe was brought back as an enforcer for William Regal on NXT. He was also hired under the provision that he cannot get physical unless he is provoked. That provocation came this week in a big way.

Joe and Kross got in each other’s faces after the match was over. Then Scarlett jumped in between them to make it seem like the confrontation was over. Then as Samoa Joe turned to leave, Karrion Kross jumped Joe and choked him out.

NXT ended this week with Karrion Kross leaving with a very happy look on his face while Samoa Joe was on the mat. We will have to see what happens next, but one would think that Samoa Joe might have been medically cleared at this point.
