The current WWE NXT champion, Karrion Kross might be in the sights of the ‘Prince’ of NXT, however during a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Kross discussed how Balor reached out to him after suffering a horrific injury that Kross suffered at NXT TakeOver XXX which lead to Kross vacating the NXT Championship the first time he won it against Keith Lee in the Summer of 2020. Balor suffered a similar injury at WWE SummerSlam 2016 where he had to drop his newly won WWE Universal Championship after beating Seth Rollins. Credit to Cultaholic for the below.
Kross told the outlet: “He addressed the conversation from a psychological point of view and addressed where I was mentally. He knew all about it. You go from the top of the mountain to fading away into oblivion. I really appreciated that he reached out to me. 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.
Recharged, refreshed & refocused .
