Karrion Kross, champion of the NXT brand, one of its top main event stars, made his debut on Monday Night Raw this week and immediately lost to Jeff Hardy. His entrance wasn’t nearly as good as it is in NXT, he was without Scarlett, who greatly enhances his act, and, as mentioned, he lost, something that has never happened in NXT.
Speaking of, he was back on NXT TV this week and one need only look at his brief appearance to see how much different he looks on the black and gold brand.
Samoa Joe spent the night calling him out, waiting for him to arrive, itching for a fight. He showed up late, laid out General Manager William Regal, cut a quick promo asserting his control, then laid the camera down and walked to his car to casually drive away as Joe chased him down. As he laid the camera down, and just before getting up to walk to his vehicle, lightning lights up the sky in the backdrop.
Even mother nature helps this man look good in NXT.
