Killer Kross admitted that he found out how long his fight was going to be in the ring.
One of the fighters that caused the most impact with his arrival in WWE was Killer Kross (Karrion Kross in Vince McMahon’s company), who quickly became one of the most imposing monsters in NXT. Its growth was so rapid that it did not take long to win the title of this brand, defeating Keith Lee and although he had to leave it vacant due to injury, when he was discharged he recovered it by defeating Finn Balor.
Despite these scrolls, her debut in the main cast was far from expected. Not only did it have a different entrance theme, but it also did not have the accompaniment of Scarlett. In addition, he lost in just 90 seconds to Jeff Hardy, who had been chaining a losing streak.
In recent days Kross was invited to Renee Paquette’s Oral Sessions, where he commented on that day:
When I went upstairs and they asked me to do the match with Jeff, I was like ‘sure, okay’. I grew up being a fan of him, and then meeting him and him being really cool was an amazing experience for me. He is one of the coolest people I have ever met. So I thought ‘okay’, and one of the agents came in and said ‘there is a long-term plan for this’, don’t worry.
I make my entrance and leave. The referee comes up to me and says ‘hey, your ten minute bout has been reduced to 90 seconds’. The first time we worked in television. We don’t really know each other in the ring, our pace. They come back from the commercials and I’m trying not to laugh. If you go back and look at it, I’m smiling, my mouth shut, trying to contain myself. As soon as Jeff stepped into the ring, I grabbed him and told him what we had to do, and that was it.
My intuition told me that everything was wrong. Everything felt like this and I felt like something bad was coming, like four months before it happened. But everyone I spoke to was like ‘oh no’. Everybody loves you. It’s good. You have no problems. But I felt it coming. I tried, in the most professional and courteous way I could, to talk to people in the chain of command about it. And I tried to be a good athlete in everything.
Just as Killer Kross predicted, a few months later he was fired like many of his peers. After his loss to Jeff Hardy, he lost his NXT Championship to Samoa Joe, while on the Monday night show he traded losses and victories against ‘The Carismatic Enigma’ himself and Keith Lee, in addition to appearing on the Main Event. Now, it only remains to wait for your next destination.
