Karrion Kross has named his choice as the most underrated superstar in WWE while adding that this particular wrestler “hits different” from the rest.
Since his WWE return in August 2022 along with his wife Scarlett, Karrion Kross has become one of the top heels on the Smackdown brand. Kross first had a feud with former WWE Champion Drew McIntyre with Kross getting a win in their first big match, but then McIntyre beat Kross in a Steel Cage Match at Crown Jewel.
Karrion Kross has also targeted others on Smackdown like Madcap Moss and the legendary Rey Mysterio as well.
This past Friday on WWE Smackdown, Karrion Kross was in a Fatal 4-Way match with Moss, Mysterio and Santos Escobar with the winner getting an Intercontinental Title match against GUNTHER. Moss won the match while Kross did his best to further his story with Mysterio.
During an appearance on the Superstar Crossover with Z100’s Josh Martinez, Karrion Kross picked another Smackdown wrestler, Ricochet, as somebody that could be considered underrated.
“I hope people don’t take this the wrong way, but I think Ricochet is most underrated. The reason is because that is a guy you can put in the ring completely, like on a cold match with no story, and he will be able to get reactions out of any audience that he is working in front of.”
“There are certain people that lean more towards storytelling, and there’s certain people that lean more towards highspots. It just depends on what audience you’re working in front of. Some audiences prefer more storytelling, and then other audiences are showing up for the highspots. They want to see hybrid Lucha Libre, which is wonderful.”
“We have a very diverse audience, and each city is different, but I’m telling you, man, if you put Ricochet in the ring with anybody, I mean, they’re gonna get their money’s worth. With all due respect to everybody on the roster, everyone gives 110%. I just think that he hits different.”
Karrion Kross made his first appearance in a WWE Royal Rumble match last month. He is not currently part of the Elimination Chamber card and it’s unknown if he will be part of WrestleMania 39 at this point.
