After a shocking victory by Jeff Hardy last week on RAW over a debuting Karrion Kross, the NXT Champion vowed to make Hardy pay for his actions. However, that all went out the window when Hardy recently tested positive for COVID-19.
WWE needed a new opponent for Kross on RAW this week and matched him up with Keith Lee who also returned last week. It was certainly a clash of the titans, but in the end, Kross was able to get the win with the Kross Jacket and redeem himself a bit. That’s not originally how things were supposed to go though.
We’ve learned at The Ringside Roster that Karrion Kross was scheduled to take on Jeff Hardy on RAW and actually lose once again. It’s something that was heavily discussed backstage as people just couldn’t wrap their heads around it. It wasn’t noted what the direction would have been after that.
We’ll have to see if WWE circles back to Kross Vs Hardy when he returns, but it will certainly be interesting to see if they will.
What did you think of Karrion Kross getting a big win on RAW? Let us know in the comments.
