Karrion Kross won the NXT Championship after defeating Keith Lee. However, he suffered a separated injury during the match and was forced to relinquish the title. Now it seems he is working very hard in order to make it back to the ring as soon as possible.
Kross took to Instagram and posted a video of him working out in the gym. He refused to answer any questions regarding his injury status. He said that he feels “absurdly stronger” than he ever did before. While he has not yet returned, this certainly gives fans hope of an early return.
I have deliberately neglected to answer any questions about my health from fans since July 22nd for a variety of reasons. I see them everyday though. And the check in’s have been sincerely appreciated. However, Today I will answer your question. I feel absurdly stronger now than I did even before July. I have not squandered this time away. I have always been addicted to challenges and avenues of improvement since I was a small kid. And I see no point in returning if I’m not coming back even stronger than I was to begin with. See you all again when the T I M E is right. Which as you know… could be any second. Or maybe when you least expect it.
Current NXT Finn Balor broke his jaw in two places and needed surgery. He has yet to return as well. We will have to see what will become of the NXT title picture.
