NXT Champion Kross Discusses His Relationship With Scarlett


WWE NXT Champion Karrion Kross suffered an unfortunate injury after becoming NXT Champion for the very first time and was forced to relinquish the title due to injury.

It was a hard road to recovery for Kross, but he might never have been able to do it if it wasn’t for his on screen and real life partner Scarlett. Kross recently spoke to Sports Illustrated where he discussed how much it meant to have her by his side during that time.

“While WWE medical was treating me the night I got hurt, she was already researching a recovery course I could start immediately the night it happened. She drove me to pick up a very specific machine from the Performance Center that helped ice the injury, and she helped me in the initial stages of rehab later that very night.”

“She asked me if I needed to go to the hospital and I said, ‘No, I need to go to Wendy’s and grab a Baconator.’ She’s the love of my life. A lot of people don’t know we’re a couple in real life, but we are. She helped me through this entire process, psychologically and physically.”
“She helped me with everything. People love to be invincible on television, but no one really is. I was periodically concerned I wouldn’t come back in the same shape or how my body would respond to hitting the canvas. She was there for me every step of the way, telling me what I needed to hear and not what I wanted to hear.”

Kross and Scarlett are currently the fiercest duo in NXT and perhaps all of the WWE. With his talent and Scarlett at his side the sky is the limit for Kross in the company and Doomsday is in full force.
