Karrion Kross suffered a separated shoulder during his NXT Title win over Keith Lee. He suffered his injury in August, and then a long wait for his return started. He was out of action about four months, but one doctor gave him a timeframe that was at least double that.
Kross tweeted out that one doctor told him his injury could take 8 to 12 months before he was ready for a return. His injury recovery was much faster than that, and his drive to become NXT Champion once again likely lit a huge fire under him every single day.
I remember receiving a prognosis about how long I was going to be out.
1 of them was 8 to 12 months.
I became very angry when I heard that.
I woke up everyday with that anger & made it work for me.
And to this day,
It’s still working.
I will become Champion once again.
Karrion Kross is on his way to get an NXT Title shot once again, but it might require a bit of waiting before they can get back around to him. He will be waiting to that time to come, because he’s already more than ready.
