Karrion Kross talks getting buried on WWE main roster

Last updated

Former WWE Superstar and NXT Champion Karrion Kross recently discussed what went wrong with his recent run on the WWE main roster and his subsequent release.

Speaking on Oral Sessions with Renee Paquette, Kross discussed putting over Jeff Hardy in one of his earliest matches on WWE RAW.

‘When I went up and they asked me to do the match with Jeff and put him over, I was like ’˜sure, that’s fine'” Kross began on the podcast.

“I grew up a fan of Jeff, and then getting to meet Jeff and him being really cool was an awesome experience to me” Kross continued.

“He’s one of the coolest people I’ve ever met. So I was like ’˜that’s fine’, and one of the agents came in and said ’˜there’s a long-term plan for this. Don’t sweat it.’ I’m like ’˜okay cool.’

“I do my entrance and I get out there. The ref comes to me and goes ’˜hey, your ten-minute match is down to 90 seconds'” Kross revealed.

“The first time we’re working on television. We don’t really know each other in the ring, our rhythm. They come back from commercials and I’m trying not to laugh” Kross noted.

“If you go back and watch it I’m smiling, closed mouth, trying to hold it back. Soon as Jeff got in the ring, I just snatched him and told him what we needed to do, and that was it” the former NXT Champion concluded.
