Corey Graves: Why WWE NXT's Karrion Kross Reminds Me Of Goldberg

Graves admits the comparison is 'a stretch'

Corey Graves says the presentation and intensity of Karrion Kross in NXT reminds him of Goldberg.

Kross' stoic focus is reminiscent of the WCW legend, according to WWE commentator Graves, who was keen to point out that he doesn't think they are exactly alike and recognises that it is a stretch to compare the NXT Champion to the WWE Hall Of Famer.

Speaking on his After The Bell Podcast, Graves said when asked who Kross reminded him of: “This is going to sound like a stretch, Goldberg. I’m going to say Goldberg, not in the same sense that made Goldberg, Goldberg but from the intensity. 

"The physical stature sure, it’s easy to draw correlations, but that intensity, that stoic focus, the badass, incredible entrance. It’s captivating, the whole package with Scarlett, but standing on his own physically speaking very rarely goes out and has marathon classics, likes to do his work with intensity and focus in short order.

"Not saying they’re the same, I’m just saying if you’re asking me who I am reminded of, I think Karrion Kross is such a unique character and unique entity, it’s almost impossible to draw a good comparison. I’m just saying from an objective perspective, looking at your T.V. screen, maybe you haven’t watched for a while and you go, oh, this guy kind of reminds me of Goldberg."
