Killer Kross: Damian Priest Is A Future WWE Hall Of Famer

Kross believes they could have a special match together in the right setting

Killer Kross - who wrestled for WWE as Karrion Kross until his release on November 4, 2021 - has high praise Damian Priest, believing the current WWE United States Champion to be a future WWE Hall of Famer. 

During a Signed by Superstars online autograph signing, Kross spoke about the match the two had at NXT New Year's Evil 2021, saying that they perhaps moved a little bit too fast and that, if given the time, setting and opportunity, could have a much better one in the future. 

"Really good [working with Damian Priest]. I got to know him personally. We hung out quite a bit outside of work. He's going to be a WWE Hall of Famer. He's a consummate professional, he's a good human being. Also not a well-known fact, Priest and I came from the same county in New York. So I lived all over New York when I was a kid, but I spent the most time in a place called Rockland County and Rockland County's a nice place but it's not nice everywhere and I'm gonna tell you, to see another guy come from where I came from, which wasn't much, make it to the stage he's on, also being Hispanic as well, I take a private pride in that. I think it’s cool that somebody from my neck of the woods also made it too and I'm just so over the moon happy for him and getting to work with him was great. I feel like that night [New Year's Evil 2021], we went a little too fast because we were excited to work with each other. I know that if we were in a building with a bigger attendance and we had 25 to 30 more minutes, we could give something really, really special, especially because we have similar styles and in the ways that we don't compliment each other, it would make for a really interesting chemistry".

The Archer of Infamy has recently started to suffer losses on Raw - to Kevin Owens and AJ Styles - which could indicate a forthcoming heel turn ahead of WrestleMania 38.
