The original plans. WWE has been all over the place this year with its releases and roster changes. Those moves have made it even more difficult to keep track of what is going on, including who is still around and working with whoever else. It makes things even more complicated when you have moves that didn’t make it to television, which is the case again with a pairing that never happened.
Scarlett Bordeaux recently took part in a signing with Signed By Superstars. During the signing, Bordeaux revealed that WWE had originally planned for her to manage Damian Priest. Pairing Bordeaux with Priest would have been the idea had Karrion Kross not been able to sign with WWE. Kross did eventually sign and was paired with Bordeaux upon his debut, though both were released from WWE earlier this year.
This could have been interesting. Check out Priest, plus Kross with and without Bordeaux:
Opinion: This is an idea that could have gone somewhere as there are enough similarities between Kross and Priest that it could have worked. That being said, I’m not sure if Priest is the kind of wrestler who needs someone in his corner, meaning this might have been the best result. I’m curious to see where Kross and Bordeaux wind up, as they really are a great pair in and out of the ring.
What do you think of the plan? How would it have worked in NXT? Let us know in the comments below.
