Karrion Kross saw a lot of success in NXT, being a 2-time NXT Champion. He was then called up to the main roster, and that signaled his steep descent into mediocrity. The former “NXT” Champion is now getting a decent storyline to make his way to the top.
WWE Hall of Famer DDP recently discussed about Karrion Kross potential on the recent episode of “DDP Snake Pit” podcast. He said that Kross is ridiculously attractive. Kross is six-foot-four or five-inches tall and it doesn’t make much sense for him to be not on top.
While he was dominant in “NXT,” Kross would not have the same success on the main roster. On July 19, 2021, he lost to Jeff Hardy on “WWE Raw” in a matter of minutes, which is not the best way to create a reputation for yourself. Kross eventually defeated Hardy and gained a few more victories before his persona and attire were altered. Kross was released on November 4, 2021, after only six months on the main roster.
DDP knew that Kross’ time was coming and wanted him to stay optimistic. After Triple H took over as Head of Creative and Head of Talent Relations on August 5th, 2022, Kross made a comeback alongside his wife Scarlett. Drew McIntyre, the top contender for Roman Reigns’ Undisputed WWE Universal Championship, was attacked by Kross on his first night back. McIntyre and Reigns are scheduled to square off at Clash at the Castle.
I was just with [Karrion] Kross. Here is this ridiculously good looking son-of-a-b-tch, you know? He’s jacked, he’s six-foot-four or five, you know? You’re talking about a guy who literally has it all … I go, ‘It doesn’t make sense that you aren’t in one of those companies on top, you know, it doesn’t make sense. Your time is coming and just stay positive bro.’ And then, boom, he freaking does the run-in on Drew [McIntyre] on “SmackDown.”
Karrion Kross is likely to face off against Roman Reigns within the next couple of months. We will have to wait and see how WWE will be booking Kross till then as well. Stay tuned to Ringside News for latest WWE news and updates.
