Karrion Kross sounds thrilled with his awesome debut on Raw

Karrion Kross debuted on Raw on July 19 with a quick loss against Jeff Hardy. The unstoppable NXT champion finally met his match without Scarlett by his side on the main roster. Many fans were understandably confused as to why the undefeated NXT champion Kross was booked to lose his very first match on Raw.

One week later, Kross defeated Keith Lee. For what it’s worth, the rumor mill suggests the original plan was for Kross to lose to Hardy again, but Hardy missed the show after testing positive for COVID-19.

Earlier today, Kross posted the following statement on Instagram. It sounds like he’s pretty happy with how his career is going so far on Raw:

Scarlett asked me in private many months ago what would be my ideal scenario for going up to main roster. I told her in a perfect world,

I’d love to work both shows; @wwenxt & @wwe #WWERAW and possibly even #WWESmackdown. I wanted as much as what was available to do.

Birthday rolls around months later,

And on that very day of July 19th, I got what I wanted.

Never discussed it with anyone, never talked about it. I just put it out there in the universe and did my best to privately work towards it.

Getting in front of a packed arena, full house and having the opportunity to do what I love in front of the #WWEUniverse; to hear, see and feel them after over a year of being here without a full attendance and chasing this for so long before I arrived...

This month has been pretty awesome.

Looking forward to the future...

And more. ⏳ #TickTock

Does Karrion’s perspective affect how you feel about his rollout on the main roster thus far?
