WWE Star Says Triple H Is “Easiest Boss They’ve Ever Had”
When Triple H took over the creative direction of WWE in the summer of 2022, he began re-hiring several stars that had recently left the company. Among the first of those to return were Karrion Kross and his wife Scarlett.
The pair have re-established themselves on SmackDown although the highlight of Kross’ second run in the company so far came at Extreme Rules when he defeated Drew McIntyre in a Strap match.
Speaking on the Out of Character podcast, Karrion Kross explained that despite his initial run on the WWE main roster that is best soon forgotten, he wasn’t apprehensive when the company asked him to come back and says that he and Scarlett love working for Triple H:
“I wasn’t apprehensive at all because I just feel like 99% of your success in this industry comes down to your ability to compose yourself under stress and pressure. I knew coming back, I felt better with myself in terms of feeling confident to shoot down an idea, a theme, or a project that I just knew wouldn’t work.”
“The NXT run that they gave me, it was a murder run. They literally had me clean out everybody and everything, complete, clean kills on everybody. I had no reason to believe that anything would become weird or not work out or something like that. This is the one thing they’re asking me to do finally that I’m not totally 100% on. In my mind, I was thinking how foolish it would look the one time they asked me to do this thing if I said no. I mean, all of that was in my head at the time.”
“Coming back, I didn’t have any of those things to be worried about. I was out there outside of WWE. Financially, my wife and I were good and we were having fun working on different projects and stuff like that. We’ve always loved working for Hunter.
“He’s the easiest boss that I’ve ever had in terms of like, being accessible to discuss ideas with and stuff like that. But also on the flip side, he may not tell you this, but you know, excellence is expected. He has a very high standard for all of his talents. While he’s easy to talk to and he’s everybody’s favorite boss, we all know that he expects us to bring it and I think that brings out the best version of all of us. I think that’s one of the main reasons why people like to work with him.”
