In setting up their NXT title clash at TakeOver: Stand & Deliver to start the black-and-gold brand’s Mar. 17 episode, Karrion Kross’ paramour Scarlett said she’d had a vision both Kross and Finn Bálor would be holding gold.
That prophesy made it seem like the NXT Tag title match she orchestrated for tonight’s main event might end with new champs. But it doesn’t seem that’s what Scarlett saw. She also told Bálor that everything happens for a reason. And her reason apparently was to take an inadvertent bump from the champ, that would enrage her partner so he could take out Finn – tag titles be damned.
After Kross’ attack allowed Oney Lorcan (left alone due to an injury to his partner Danny Burch*) to pin Finn and keep the Tag belts, Scarlett’s games continued. She tried to assure the Prince it would be okay, only to set him up for one final blow from Kross.
Things are heating up, and Bálor won’t be falling for any more of the platinum prognosticators tricks, on the road to TakeOver.

* UPDATE: PWInsider reports word backstage is that Danny Burch suffered a separated shoulder in the match. We’ll pass along any other information as we see it.
