This week’s episode of WWE Monday Night Raw featured a big debut from NXT Champion Karrion Kross, but many people were surprised when the champion was defeated by Jeff Hardy in his debut match. The bout was a non-title match, but Jeff’s brother Matt Hardy jokingly questioned why Jeff isn’t the NXT Champion following his victory over Kross.
Why does Kross still have the title? I thought my brother won it.
