The Bloodline leader Roman Reigns recently successfully defended his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Drew McIntyre at WWE Clash at the Castle Premium Live Event. Karrion Kross has had his sights set on the titles for quite some time now. Xero News reported that Reigns is likely to defend his titles against Kross at Saudi Arabia event.
“Current plans show Roman working Saudi and facing Kross for the belts.”
Reigns has been unstoppable with his championship reign and he hit the two-year mark. Reigns has been the Universal champion since the Payback event on August 30th 2020. It has been the longest reign in the championship’s history and the sixth-longest world championship reign in WWE history. We will have to see if Kross is able to dethrone the champ.
Kross recently revealed that he wanted to mix it up with a string of WWE talents during his first main roster run, and was often asked about the stars he wanted to share the ring with. However, he was wary of calling for a match with one major WWE stars.
Karrion Kross reveals why he didn’t wanted storyline with Roman Reigns
Speaking to Quetzalli Bulnes for WWE’s E”l Brunch,” Kross revealed why he didn’t want to immediately call for a clash with Roman Reigns when he first earned a main roster spot with WWE back in 2021. Kross was released from WWE on November 4 last year but Triple H brought him back following the retirement of Vince McMahon.
“When I was leaving NXT the first time and coming to the main roster, my goal was to compete against Roman Reigns,” Kross said. “I wanted to be very careful about how I would talk about them publicly, because sometimes when you say what you want to do publicly it will never happen. People would ask me, ‘Do you wanna wrestle Goldberg? Do you wanna wrestle Brock Lesnar? Do you wanna wrestle Bray Wyatt? Drew McIntyre? Randy Orton?’ Yes, across the boards, but I would never ever talk about Roman Reigns. I didn’t want him to know I was coming.”
