Adam Cole was not on WWE NXT on Tuesday night, as creatively Triple H focused on the return of Bobby Fish, who confronted Kyle O’Reilly for the first time since Undisputed Era’s breakup. WWE Bring Back Star After ‘Pedophile’ Accusation.
Fish told O’Reilly, “I’ve got my own scores to settle. I’ll see you when I see you.”
Karrion Kross will defend his NXT Title against Finn Balor in two weeks.
“I really appreciated that he reached out to me,” Kross recently told SI about Balor after his 2020 injury. “Before that, we were just acquaintances. This was beyond professional, and it made a big difference. Then, months later, we’re in the ring trying to kill each other. It’s funny how the universe works.”
“The injury blindsided me,” Kross says. “This isn’t something I wanted to be too public about because I didn’t want people to be too removed from what I was doing. Psychologically, I had to recover, even back in the ring.
“As a performer, I did something so comfortably for so long. Then that accident happened, and I had to get past those doubts in the back of my mind. The physical part, rebuilding and retraining my shoulder, that was one thing. There was a lot more, too. At first, I couldn’t get dressed. I couldn’t put on my socks. It felt like everything was affected.”
