With rumours circulating that HHH was interested in bringing back the former NXT Champion to WWE, it didn't take long for that to be proven out. During Friday's SmackDown, Kross (along with Scarlett Bordeaux and her hourglass) returned to take aim at the brand's biggest stars.
The closing segment featured a showdown between Roman Reigns (with The Bloodline) and Drew McIntyre. The Undisputed WWE Universal Champion talked about how much he hates Brock Lesnar, before demanding the WWE Universe acknowledge him. That brought out The Scottish Warrior, who didn't waste any time asking the crowd if they wanted to see him wipe out the entire Bloodline prior to their upcoming match at Clash at the Castle. Before he could make good on his threat, a strange video was projected onto the entrance screen with a familiar theme song. It was hard to make out who was in the entryway, but it was a female figure. As McIntyre and Reigns looked on confused, Karrion Kross came in from behind to attack the former TNA World Heavyweight champion.
The announce crew wasn't sure who it was exactly, until Pat McAfee shouted, "Karrion Kross?" Michael Cole then confirmed that was the case, when the camera zoomed in on the imposing figure. "Karrion Kross, a former NXT Champion has returned." The question is, who was Kross sending a message to? Was he targeting Drew McIntyre? Or, was he taking out the challenger in an attempt to send a message to the champion?
What Does WWE Have Planned For Kross?
This is a big play by Triple H creatively. Not only did he bring back a recently-released NXT star, but he's plopped him right into the main event scene on the blue brand. Just prior to a big showdown between McIntyre and Reigns at Clash at the Castle, Karrion is now a big part of the picture and it's unclear how WWE will include him in all of this. The Game was known to be a fan of Kross' during his Gold & Black Brand run, suggesting he had all the tools to be a huge star. Clearly, The Cerebral Assassin's putting his money where his mouth is.
