Karrion Kross has already made a big impact since he made his debut on NXT. He made short work of Tommaso Ciampa at NXT TakeOver: In Your House. He is always accompanied by Scarlett Bordeaux, who is his real-life girlfriend.
Kross spoke to Newsweek, where he discussed how it felt working with his real-life partner. He said they have entirely different presentations to offer. Both of them have confidence in their abilities to perform individually, but they also had confidence in working together in order to present something unique to the fans.
Her and I are in a relationship together, but more importantly than the novelty of working together we both believe that we have something totally different to offer as a presentation.
To be entirely honest with you, that’s the reason we wanted to work together. We are both completely confident in being able to have potentially separate careers and being able to carry on our own. But we genuinely felt that we were able to showcase something different to the WWE universe that hasn’t been done before. Of course there’s been valets and managers, tag team duos where one goes single and the other is supporting in the corner.
This idea that we’ve been camping on, we’ve been working on for a very long time. Sort out how it could work, come up with different scenarios, visualize different things, visualize different areas of growth, what it can be, where it can go and we both committed to it.
We can definitely pull off this operation and figure out the right way to explain this in a business format how and why it could work. This can be a great idea and different and we were met with enthusiasm and now you guys got it. And we’re happy we’re able to do it.
Karrion Kross seems to have his sights set on the NXT Title following this week’s episode of NXT. We will have to see how they book his feud with Adam Cole.
