Zack’s partner also spread the word about their pro golfing abilities. James also took to Twitter to share the moment with his fans.

 

LA Knight is one of the most fun characters in NXT at the moment. His overall persona resembles that of WWE Hall of Famer, The Million Dollar Man, Ted DiBiase. This is why he is the only wrestler fit to hold the Million Dollar Belt.

The current WWE NXT Champion, Karrion Kross, did not have the best of debuts on the main roster. His loss to veteran wrestler Jeff Hardy on Monday Night Raw hit him hard. Now he had a point to prove.

Kross redeemed himself this week on Raw when he went head to head against his former NXT rival, Keith Lee. Both wrestlers were coming into the match following a loss the previous week. However, it was the Champ who was able to save face in front of the fans.
