They obviously have high hopes for him to be thrust straight into a main event level programme with Ciampa. 

We've not seen much of him so far it's been a very slow burn approach but I've enjoyed what seems to be a very dark and mysterious character he's portraying. 

Karrion Kross is a pretty good name, I think it was obvious WWE wouldn't be using the name Killer. 

His real life wife Scarlett Bordeaux is with him as part of the act, will be interesting to see if she will work matches too or just be his valet. 
The real test now is can he hang in the ring with a top guy like Ciampa.

Quote As seen in recent weeks, Killer Kross made his debut on NXT by attacking Tommaso Ciampa. He is using the ring name “Karrion Kross”. According to Fightful, the name change came from Kross himself and not WWE.

For what it’s worth, the word “carrion” is decaying flesh of dead animals. “Kharon” in Greek mythology is the ferryman who takes souls to the land of the dead. Kross has a tattoo that says “Kheiron” on his back.

WWE officials were reportedly open to using the word “Killer” on TV despite rumors to the contrary.

He's very highly thought of by E for them to have been open to allowing him to use his usual name.

I like the name he's come up with and when you read the above it makes perfect sense.

Love the voiceover work of Scarlett as it makes perfect sense pairing the real life couple together.

I have also been keeping an eye on their social media like Instagram with their posts of the number 12 such as XII.

That was incredible. Absolutely Wrestlemania 70+ thousand crowd stadium style entrance.

The line Tom Phillips said when asking who let him in was gold.

Scarlett looked amazing and it's so rare for a valet to sing the entrance music of her guy. Very much a Sherri Martel moment.

Such a gothic feel to it and loved that Kross looked at the ref as if to say don't touch me.

Loved the entrance, that alone should get him over as a major player. 

Solid ring work from the little I saw, it was very much a quick squash. 

From a character perspective these two are the business, Karrion Kross has the look and aura of a big star and Scarlett definitely adds something to the act. 

It's refreshing to see a character like this in NXT as they focus so heavily on back to basics pro wrestling I'm actually enjoying seeing a bit more character driven stuff lately.

Sycho Sid has left a comment on his latest Instagram photo. High praise indeed.

I like how he didn't just go for his submission finisher, he laid his opponent out first with a power move.

Roll on next week to see which jobber is next.

Sycho Sid is one of my all time favourite wrestlers, there is a great podcast where Sean Mooney talks to him about his life and career for any fellow fans of Sid. I noticed on Instagram that Sid had praise for both Karrion Kross and Dexter Lumis, two characters that seem to have taken inspiration from Sid and are also two of my favourites on the current NXT roster.

I knew I had heard that song in the background before. Jim Johnston created it for Armageddon 2003 when Goldberg in the main event dropped the title to Hs in a triple threat with Kane.

Another well produced promo segment, but he should have been given a squash match too.

He's just so sinister and mean looking, but without the need to shout and act crazy.
