A long-time absent WWE star has shared a cryptic update on their future.
Karrion Kross hasn’t appeared on WWE television since being defeated by AJ Styles on the August 11th episode of SmackDown. However, he hasn’t been sitting idle, instead wrestling on live events and plotting his next move.
In a new YouTube video complete with the usual smoke and mirrors, Kross discussed living in Las Vegas and watching people gamble their lives away — something that inspired him to take control of his own destiny.
“Well, well, well. There it is and here you are,” he began. “If you’re here, that means you were looking for this. You don’t just find it by accident. This is a story you should have heard a long time ago. See, before I was involved in this business, I was involved with another one, and it took me here to Sin City.
See, I always had this thing inside me. There it is again, you see it plain as day. See, I’m not crazy. I didn’t know what that was, but it told me to leave home, which was very far away at the time, or so I thought. Well, that’s exactly what I did. I found this gig, a job.
All I had to do was keep an eye on people and if there were any issues, to take care of the issues. It was a good-paying job, but then I came to realize that money wasn’t that important to me. Especially when the person paying me pissed me off.
So I decided to move on to other things. I evolved past that home monetary thing,” he added. “I needed to know what my deeper calling was and I began to watch gambling. I watched people lay their lives down on the table knowing the house was going to win. I
watched people destroy themselves on the chance that things might get better, but they didn’t. They absolutely did not. It inspired me. I said, ‘I want to become that chance.’ No, not the good one. I want to become the chance that everything fails and they lose everything and they fade out with less than they started with. I became ‘the house.’ I became ‘the end.’
WWE Seemingly Scraps AJ Styles’ Return
While Karrion Kross has been missing since August, AJ Styles hasn’t featured on SmackDown since September 15th. Although it appeared he was set to return on November 11th, after his profile was listed on the events page for SmackDown. However, WWE seemingly scrapped AJ Styles’ return, as the show came and went without an appearance from the star.
