He might have a future. There have been all kinds of changes taking place in WWE in recent weeks and some of them have involved wrestlers making surprise returns. That was the case this week as Karrion Kross made his return on SmackDown. Seeing Kross back was surprising enough, but now it seems that he might be in for quite the push in his own right.
According to Fightful Select, there have been pitches in WWE creative to immediately put Kross into the WWE Universal Title feud between champion Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre. One possible plan could see Kross challenging Reigns for one of his titles in a potential split of the championships. This comes as the USA Network has been requesting a title of its own as Reigns rarely appears on the show, with an interim title being pitched. There is no word on if such an idea was seriously considered by WWE.
Opinion: I was surprised to see Kross back in WWE but going straight from that to the main event scene might be a bit too much of a jump. WWE is in need of some fresh main eventers though and maybe Kross is ready to be there. If nothing else, the idea of splitting the titles up again is not the worst idea, as it would certainly give Monday Night Raw something else to focus on for a change.
What do you think of Kross’ return? Will he win a World Title in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
