Karrion Kross had a great run 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 back in 2021. He might be back to WWE but hasn’t seen much success yet. Now it appears some want him to cut back his hair and go back to his old NXT look.
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 and then began a feud with Rey Mysterio.
He recently began a feud with AJ Styles on Friday Night Smackdown, as both have traded wins over each other. Unfortunately, Kross has not exactly lit the world on fire so far.
While speaking on the Keepin’ It 100 podcast, Disco Inferno talked about Karrion Kross’ run in WWE so far after his return. Inferno suggested that Kross cut his hair and go back to his old NXT bald look.
“This is the problem with Karrion Kross. If he would’ve come up to WWE immediately as the character he was presented like in NXT, he would’ve gotten over. But he went to the main roster and they just did nothing with him and they put a helmet on him and it was just like they neutered him. It was like… So then when he came back, when Hunter came back, he then he immediately thrust him from that from his perception before with the guy with the helmet that was getting beat by Jeff Hardy they wanted to put him in the picture with Drew McIntyre and Roman [Reigns].
But he didn’t look that same. He had hair and it’s like we’ve never seen the presentation of Kross’ character the way it was presented in NXT. He hasn’t looked like that character and hasn’t been presented like that. So, it’s weird. I think Kross should cut his hair and go back and let’s try to get back to the roots of what worked.”
Karrion Kross also came up with a new fiinisher on last week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown. Regardless, we’ll have to wait and see whether Kross will end up changing his look back to his NXT time.
