There have been rumors of Karrion Kross getting a new story on television for what feels like forever now and WWE finally delivered on a vignette for as much on Friday Night SmackDown this week. It’s in the usual presentation for the character:
“I would like to speak with you all today about the most urgent world event that is about to occur. This place is about to be recycled. The moment I walked through the door, everything was set into motion. And now we are at the threshold of a new beginning. Everything is about to crumble. Can you see it yet? Soon, you will.”
It’s the usual cryptic talk but it also seems to be pretty straightforward, all things considered. It sure sounds like he’s going to be the guy to come in and make some big changes to SmackDown. That seems like a pretty tall order, considering how top heavy the blue brand is at this point, with Randy Orton, AJ Styles, LA Knight, and The Bloodline all occupying the main event scene at the same time.
But I, for one, am rooting for Kross to succeed. His presentation, the entire aesthetic, is something we don’t really get anywhere else. Here’s to hoping this, whatever it turns out to be, will catch on.
Anyway, here are all the videos from SmackDown this week:
