Karrion Kross is currently the NXT Champion and has been on the receiving end of a great push after he came back from a shoulder injury. He is an imposing force in the company and Kross now has a solid fan following.

Karrion Kross has had a solid run in NXT so far as he quickly cemented himself as a dominant NXT Superstar and is an ideal champion.

On this past week’s episode of Monday Night RAW, Karrion Kross made his debut on the show as he faced off against Jeff Hardy in a singles match.

Karrion Kross lost the match in a very short time after Jeff Hardy won with a roll up pin. Naturally, this upset many fans who couldn’t believe something like this happened to Karrion Kross.


While speaking on his Hall Of Fame podcast, Booker T talked about Karrion Kross losing to Jeff Hardy and stated that he doesn’t understand why people are so mad over what happened. He then blasted fans for jumping the gun on the storyline and wanting instant gratification.

“What was the internet set ablaze for?” Booker said. “What do they have to do with the show? Guys, it’s not about the match most of the time, it’s about the story. Karrion Kross is a guy who’s the NXT Champion and undefeated down in NXT. One thing you have to realize is that it’s still NXT. Losing to Jeff Hardy in a match that everybody in the world thought Karrion Kross making his debut is a match that he’s supposed to win but Jeff Hardy is still a veteran to the game. Jeff Hardy didn’t go out there and beat him with the whisper in the wind either, Jeff Hardy stole a match from Karrion Kross.

“When [WWE are] doing this, [they’re] doing it for a reason. When they did that, it was all for a reason. You gotta understand what the reason is opposed to just trying to analyze it and think you know exactly the way it should have gone because you didn’t get what you thought you should’ve got at that moment.

The thing is, we don’t know if we’re not going to go that route,” Booker said. “We don’t know that. We just know that Karrion Kross showed up on Monday Night RAW and lost and went back to NXT and got into an angle with Samoa Joe. We don’t know if Karrion Kross is going to be back next week, and probably not, and when he does come back we don’t know he’s going to be with Scarlett or not.

“I think people jump the gun so much because it’s like instant coffee. They want it right now, they want instant gratification. I just don’t think you can book the wrestling business around what the fans want on any given night. It would be booking yourself into a corner every week, you just can’t do it.”

It was said that Karrion Kross is likely to come back and decimate everyone on the main roster soon enough. We will have to wait and see how WWE will be booking the storyline for Karrion Kross.
