After weeks of teasing the man formally known as Killer Kross was officially announced to appear next week on NXT. Kross, now going by the name Karrion, has been the subject of the Tick Tok vignettes airing on NXT and was most recently show on NXT TV attacking former champion Tommaso Ciampa.
Kross will be working with Scarlett Bordeux who will be dropping the last name and will move forward as Scarlett. Kross will bring a much needed nasty streak to an NXT roster filled with fast paced and technical workers. It was also announced that Finn Balor would be appearing on NXT next week after an angle was shot last week where Balor was announced as unable to compete after an attack. Could Balor be the first opponent for Karrion Kross? One thing which was said to draw the heavily recruited Kross to NXT was said to be the opportunity to receive a big push quickly. Facing one of the best NXT champions right off the bat would certainly seem to fit that bill.
