Karrion Kross had a brilliant time in NXT, where he won the NXT Championship twice. However, none of that mattered after he was called up to the main roster and was utterly humiliated every week. He has since returned to WWE and has been booked better. He also has a very high opinion of Triple H for a good reason.
Kross returned to WWE and immediately attacked Drew McIntyre during the closing moments of SmackDown back in August last year. He had a long feud with McIntyre but that is over now.
Triple H took over the Creative aspect of WWE after Vince McMahon had to retire for a few months. Fans were very glad about that fact as Triple H brought about a lot of changes that they loved.
While speaking on Out of Character with Ryan Satin, Karrion Kross talked about his return to the company and working under Triple H. Kross stated that Triple H is everyone’s favorite boss.
I wasn’t apprehensive at all. 99% of your success in this industry comes down to your ability to compose yourself under stress and pressure. I knew, coming back, what I felt I should say. I felt better with myself in terms of feeling confident to shoot down an idea or a theme or a project that I knew wouldn’t work. On top of that, the NXT run that they gave me, it was a murder run. They literally had me clean out everybody and everything.
Complete clean kills on everybody. I had no reason to believe that anything would become weird or not work out or something like that. This is the one thing they’re asking me to do that I’m not totally 100% on; how foolish would it look, the one time they asked me to do this thing, if I said no? All of that was in my head at the time.
Coming back, I didn’t have any of those things to be worried about. Out there, outside of WWE, financially, my wife and I were good and we were having fun and working on different projects. We’ve always loved working for Hunter. He’s like the easiest boss that I’ve ever had in terms of being accessible to discuss ideas with. On the flip side, he may not tell you this, but excellence is expected. He has a high standard for all of his talents to meet.
He’s easy to talk to and everyone’s favorite boss, we all know that he expects us to bring it. That brings out the best version of all of us and is one of the main reasons people like to work with him. When we have a show, he’s out there at ringside with everybody and doing everything. We’re very lucky to have that.”
Karrion Kross had been feuding with Rey Mysterio after targeting the Master of the 619 a while ago. We will have to wait and see when Kross will be pushed to the main event scene on Friday Night Smackdown.
