Karrion Kross has explained how it was his relationship with Triple H that led to him returning to WWE when The Game took over the company.
Karrion Kross stunned the wrestling world when he and his wife Scarlett returned to WWE in August 2022 – less than a year after both stars had been released by the company.
Kross and Scarlett were just two of many former stars that have returned to the company since Triple H ascended to his role of Chief Content Officer following the retirement of Vince McMahon.
Speaking to The Sun, Karrion Kross explained how it was his relationship with Triple H that helped lead to the couple’s comeback:
“Well, I stayed in touch with everybody even after I left. So I stayed in touch with the boys and a few people in management.”
“The last three months before I was released they were a little weird but I didn’t let that spoil my entire experience in the company. I had a really good experience with WWE. And the experience working there was life-changing in all the best ways. So every once in a while we would check in on Hunter and see how he’s doing, just personal stuff – we never talked about work – and he would check in on us.”
“One day he was wondering if we were around for a call. And then I think it was the week that you guys saw me on TV. I jumped on a call with Hunter and he proposed the concept of coming back. He said, ‘Would you guys like to come home?’ And we were like, ‘Of course we would’. And then you guys saw us two days later, we were on TV.”
“We’ve always had a good relationship with everyone. We loved our experience there. That bridge was never ever burned or damaged or anything like that. It was just a series of unfortunate events that led to where we’re at and we came full circle.”
Karrion Kross will have his hands full at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia when he goes one-on-one with Drew McIntyre in a Steel Cage match.
