NXT Superstar Karrion Kross has reacted to critics of his main event title push. Speaking with DAZN's Steven Muehlhausen, Kross was asked his thoughts on such criticisms, with Kross saying the following:
“For starters, I don't pay any attention to that. But for the sake of entertaining the notion, first of all, I got really thick skin except when you start trashing Demolition Man. Bro, don't think I forgot. Okay, first of all, it's on my mind. I approach it from two different things, two different ways. Number one, everybody wants to see you do well until they feel like you're doing better than they'd like you to do. That's life in general. On that notion, people always say they want change. People like to see change and all things, right? But they want to see change on their terms. Too bad.
“Look at it like this. This is a success story if you really think about it. If you remove me from it and just look at a person not Karrion Kross. A person coming in and finding success like this. This can happen to other people.”
Kross debuted in NXT in May 2020, and won the NXT Title from Keith Lee after only four months with the brand, before injury forced him to relinquish the belt four days later. Now fully fit, he is set to take on NXT Champion Finn Bálor at NXT: TakeOver - Stand & Deliver Night Two on Thursday April 8.
