Karrion Kross won the NXT Championship within months of his debut on the brand. However, an injury cut his title reign short to only three days. That injury seemed to have done more harm to Kross than only the NXT title.
Dave Meltzer, on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, mentioned that Karrion Kross is being groomed for the main roster. But the separated shoulder injury that Kross suffered in June slowed down his progress.
Meltzer added WWE Management is very high on Karrion Kross and they can’t wait for him to get to the main roster. And that call will come before many other NXT stars.
A feud between Karrion Kross and WWE NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar is teased recently. Escobar name-dropped Kross by referencing his injury and Kross having to drop the title even before a single title defense. Scarlett then showed up during Escobar’s match against Gran Metalik on this week’s NXT.
