“I’m angry, Kevin. Karrion attacked me after our match and left me gasping for air. I’m gonna show Karrion Kross you don’t disrespect me like that. Karrion is as dangerous as they come, but I’ve thrived off danger my whole career. I’m going at Kross with everything I’ve got. In fact, Karrion might wanna check that little hourglass of his because his fifteen minutes of fame on RAW are about up.”

Just as Hardy finished his promo, the NXT champion hit the veteran with a vicious drive-by attack and flattened him. With Hardy on the ground, Kross said, “Tick tock, Jeff. Tick. Tock.”

But the brute strength of Kross overtook everything. Looking to end the match quickly, Hardy went for a quick Twist of Fate. However, Kross was even quicker to counter it into the Kross Jacket. Even though Hardy was the veteran going into the match, he ended up having to fall and pray.

Hence, Kross proved who was better in a mere thirty seconds and took a 2-1 lead in their feud.
