A WWE star believes that Triple H is everyone’s favorite boss and brings out the best version of us.
Karrion Kross signed with WWE in 2020 and quickly became a dominant force on the NXT brand. Within four months of his debut, Kross defeated Keith Lee to win the NXT Championship at NXT TakeOver XXX.
After vacating the title due to injury that he suffered in the match where he won the gold, Kross returned to regain the title by beating Finn Balor at NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver 2021.
Kross would move up to the main roster with Vince McMahon changing his presentation and removing his wife Scarlett from his act. Kross was soon released from the company in November 2021.
However, the former two-time NXT Championship returned to WWE in August 2022, just weeks after McMahon retired from the company.
Speaking on Out of Character with Ryan Satin, Kross discussed returning to WWE and working with Triple H again, this time on the main roster. Describing how he felt better once he came back, he said:
“I wasn’t apprehensive at all. 99% of your success in this industry comes down to your ability to compose yourself under stress and pressure. I knew, coming back, what I felt I should say.”
“I felt better with myself in terms of feeling confident to shoot down an idea or a theme or a project that I knew wouldn’t work. On top of that, 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 that I’m not totally 100% on; how foolish would it look, the one time they asked me to do this thing, if I said no? All of that was in my head at the time.”
Kross continued on to note that he and Scarlett have always loved working for Triple H, saying:
“Coming back, I didn’t have any of those things to be worried about. Out there, outside of WWE, financially, my wife and I were good and we were having fun and working on different projects.”
“We’ve always loved working for Hunter. He’s like the easiest boss that I’ve ever had in terms of being accessible to discuss ideas with. On the flip side, he may not tell you this, but excellence is expected.”
“He has a high standard for all of his talents to meet. He’s easy to talk to and everyone’s favorite boss, we all know that he expects us to bring it. That brings out the best version of all of us and is one of the main reasons people like to work with him.”
“When we have a show, he’s out there at ringside with everybody and doing everything. We’re very lucky to have that.”
Karrion Kross and Scarlett are currently on the SmackDown brand and has scored wins over Rey Mysterio and Drew McIntyre, among others.
